Description of 5343 PALOS VERDES DRIVE, SARASOTA, FL 34231

Set along the calm waters of Phillippi Creek, this home sits gracefully on a tree-lined street in the quaint neighborhood of River Forest. The understated exterior gives way to a refreshingly updated four-bedroom, three-bathroom home with 2,681 square feet of functional living space and tranquil views of the water beyond. The great room features a wall of sliding glass doors that open to the lanai and pool area, two sky lights, a built-in entertainment center, and is completely open to the beautifully designed kitchen. Stunning cabinetry, granite countertops, professional stainless steel appliances including gas five-burner cooktop, bar seating and large stainless steel farmhouse sink make the kitchen as dramatic as it is functional. The master suite boasts access to the lanai and includes a spa-like master bathroom with custom vanity cabinet, freestanding soaking tub and large frameless glass shower. The three guest bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the opposite side of the home and share an extra bonus room that can be used as a family, game or even music room. The lanai features vaulted ceilings, covered and uncovered seating areas, paver decking and large pool. Just outside the lanai, the charming backyard includes a wood pergola, stone walkways, concrete seawall and mature oak trees that provide the utmost shade on even the warmest days. Enjoy this rare opportunity that brings together a convenient central Sarasota location with 100 waterfront feet and easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway.
