Description of 129 MCKINLEY DRIVE, SARASOTA, FL 34236

Own a cherished part of Sarasota’s history, just a breath away from the sparkling waters of beautiful Lido Beach on Lido Key. The Ringling Retreat is an historic cottage that was once part of the sprawling John and Mable Ringling Estate, retaining its laidback character and many of its original charms. Set between the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay, the tropical property boasts three separate yet connected residences adorned with contemporary furnishings and a collection of unique art. The home currently offers a multi-family floor plan with a 2 bedroom suite, 1 bedroom suite and a studio apartment, each with a full bath, living space and kitchen. Lush mature landscaping frames the eclectic façade, as a majestic banyan tree provides an abundance of shade perfect for quiet mornings sipping coffee or relaxing afternoons taking in the fresh gulf breezes. Enjoy all the amenities of this world-class island destination, just a short walk to the popular Lido swimming pool, a gorgeous nature preserve, and the vibrant shopping venues, galleries, exotic boutiques and dining options of St. Armands Circle.
