Description of 8420 SYLVAN WOODS DRIVE, SARASOTA, FL 34243

RARE, MOVE IN READY, FANTASTIC LOCATION! Situated on a cul-de-sac street on 0.26 acre homesite in the highly sought after University Parkway/Lakewood Ranch area, this stunning ranch style home looks and feels like a model home. This exceptional open concept floor plan is wonderful for entertaining, featuring a delightful living room and dining room and a cozy family room with fireplace and large picture windows (hurricane impact). The family room, dining room, and master bedroom all converge at the large, covered, screen enclosed lanai. You will love to chill and grill in this outdoor living area that overlooks the luscious, private backyard that has plenty of room for a pool. The roomy kitchen looks like new with beautiful cabinetry with crown molding and a stone tile backsplash. Tile flooring throughout and wood laminate in the bedrooms. The master suite offers dual closets, dual vanities, custom tile, and a large walk-in shower. Pride of ownership is evident: roof replaced in 2004, kitchen and baths updated in 2004, and new A/C in 2014. This home has been cared for meticulously and is ideally located. It is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood yet near the retail universe in Sarasota with a plethora of popular stores and restaurants nearby. Sarasota is known as the cultural center of Florida’s Gulf Coast, with its own orchestra, ballet company, opera, 10 live theaters, and 30 museums and art galleries.
