Enjoy bay views and balmy bay breezes from the backyard and dock of this expanded and renovated Siesta Key home near Siesta Beach. Located on a deep-water bayou just four lots from the bay on arguably the deepest sailboat water on the island, in a private cul-de-sac canopy community close to the famous, powdery white sands and azure waters of Siesta Beach. There is privacy and plenty of space to roam on the 16,800-square foot lot, with room for a pool if desired. Large, open spaces include a dining room and great room that features soaring ceilings and wall of windows and French doors which bathe the rooms in natural light. The open kitchen boasts wood cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless appliances, large breakfast bar and breakfast room overlooking the waterway. The split bedroom floorplan features a master suite with sparkling water views, soaring ceilings and a sumptuous bathroom. Additionally, three guest bedrooms, two baths, laundry room and extra air-conditioned storage. The extra-large two-car garage easily accommodates cars plus plenty of room for storage. The spacious waterfront paver deck area is perfect for relaxing or alfresco dining. Large circular paver driveway and walks. Community well provides water for landscape irrigation, included in $900/yr HOA dues. One minute to the bay with no fixed bridge, direct to the Gulf of Mexico.
