Description of 5551 AMERICA DRIVE, SARASOTA, FL 34231

Needs a little TLC to make this home your own. Bring your boat to 100' of canal front on Coquina Island. Only 10 minutes from the ICW. Coquina canal is 3 ft. deep. There is 1 bridge with a 10' clearance on the creek and then a short ride to the ICW. Siesta Beach is right around the corner, a 2 mile drive or bike to #1 beach in the US. A very convenient location in south Sarasota in a non-deed restricted community. This is a move in ready well maintained pool home with 2 ensuite bedrooms and a third bedroom and a third pool bath with inside laundry. A bonus sun room (not included in 2003 sf) is off one master suite that has a view of the water and pool. View the water from the kitchen and adjoining family room. Kitchen has quality granite counters and breakfast bar. Dining room off kitchen combines with TV/living room. A sunny pool deck around the large pool was recently refurbished and re-screened and has plenty of space for entertaining. The dock is on a sea wall and has water and electric. Relax and get a close look at the wildlife floating or flying by. Septic to be hooked up end of year (see attachments for addendum and cost). This is a great neighborhood with many of the older homes renovated or in the process. Quiet dead-end street. Nothing better in Phillippi Gardens.
