Located only a few short miles from Siesta Key beaches and downtown Sarasota, a serene oasis awaits. This unique 1.05 acre property nestled off Proctor Rd. and Sawyer, defies all its surroundings with thoughtful native landscaping, done by renowned local landscape architect, Tim Macksey. The exquisitely designed natural landscape give an old Florida feel in the heart of the city, shrouding you with perfect privacy from neighbors and the street. Follow the walkways that snake through the property to discover relaxing hidden sitting areas and beautiful gardens. Deeper into the property, lies an equally unique home that seems perfectly cohesive to its setting. Designed by Terry Osborn, AIA, the exterior of the home features board and batten siding, and an abundance of black framed windows with white trim surrounding them. Entering the front entry door, a vaulted tongue and groove ceiling with clerestory windows, and large bypass windows below bring natural light to every facet of the space. Rich wood floors, trim, and doors give the home a warm inviting feel and Old Florida charm which pairs perfectly to the landscape. The raked ceiling of the formal dining area is highlighted by its skylights and framed perfectly by large cedar beams. The kitchen features stainless appliances including a gas range, along with ample cabinet space. Also unique are the lofts situated above each bedroom, providing a perfect space to read a book while looking out the window over the gardens below. The master suite has a loft as the others do, but with a bonus room attached large enough to be a movie room. The oversized detached 2 car garage with a 220-volt electric charging port has the same architectural style with a studio space above equipped with a full bath and kitchenette. Recent updates to the home include a new Air Conditioning unit, an outdoor screened-in pavilion, a large chicken coop, a fire pit, hot tub, and a sky deck. No HOA. One of a kind is usually cliche, but in this case it's fitting. Come see for yourself today!
