Description of 1547 BAY VIEW DRIVE, SARASOTA, FL 34239

The effective build date of this gracious West of Trail family home is 1989. The home was completely rebuilt on and around the existing slab. Located in historic Bayview Heights, between Cherokee Park and McClellan Park, the home is welcoming and comfortable. Hand-carved mahogany entry doors welcome you into a lofty living room with vaulted ceiling, wood-burning fireplace and wall-to-wall glass doors that lead to the covered patio, gazebo and travertine pool deck. The large kitchen with eat-at island is open to the family room which opens to the outdoor living space and is adjacent to the dining room through pocket doors which can be left open for family meals or closed for formal dinners. The home’s four bedrooms include an upstairs master suite with two balconies, as well as a downstairs private guest suite. Across the master suite, a solid wood-paneled den completes the owner’s retreat. Fine finishes include marble tile flooring, 5-inch baseboards, crown molding, fluted square columns and solid wood cabinetry. Designed for enjoying the outdoors as much as indoors, the home has a covered patio with vaulted gazebo, large 15 x 30 pool and sits on a double lot with mature trees. 2016 improvements include new roof with warranty, gutters and downspouts with leaf guard, master suite air conditioning, 50-gallon hot water heater, pool resurface and pump, travertine pool and patio deck, landscaping and irrigation system.
