Location, location, location! Minutes from I-75, Lakewood Ranch, and the Benderson/UTC complex. This is the subtly sophisticated, user-friendly, updated Florida home you've been waiting for. This Wetherington Sanford model with mature landscaping is situated within the gated community of University Place, nestled on a quiet street backing up to a nature preserve. With over 3, 000 sq. ft. of decorator touches and modern conveniences, this four-bedroom residence is perfect for entertaining and luxury Florida living. Enter your new home through the double glass doors with self-contained, adjustable privacy blinds. You'll see an impressive great room, with enough living space for a welcoming entry area, dining room, and several seating areas. With two sets of sliding doors across the back of the house, ten-foot accented ceilings, and white oiled-oak floors throughout the living areas downstairs, the space is light, airy and bright. There's also a spacious light-filled den/office/bedroom just off the entry. The modern chef's kitchen has newer appliances (2017-2020), a gas cooktop, wall ovens, beverage cooler, spacious pantry closet, and a large tiered island to relax with your morning espresso. Off the open kitchen, the hallway leads to two guest bedrooms, a full bath, five generous storage closets with California-style shelving, and full laundry room with work sink. In the other direction, there's a powder room and closet next to the door leading to the outdoor, screened lanai living space. The home has a split floorplan, with the private, first-floor master suite looking out with triple windows to the outdoor living area and nature preserve. The senior-friendly master bath has a garden tub, large walk-in shower, and double sink. Upstairs is a large windowed, flexible space with a vaulted ceiling. It has a shower bath and large closet, so it can be used as either a bedroom, office or media room. The possibilities are endless! When you're not appreciating the decorator finishes, updated lighting, and built-in entertainment center inside your home, you'll be lounging in the outdoor living space. The newly (2020) resurfaced and tiled saltwater, heated pool and spa will keep you and your guests relaxed and entertained year-round. There's an outdoor shower, natural gas grill and prep area, removable child-guard pool fence, and enough room to dine, lounge and enjoy the exotic birds that call the preserve their home. Your maintenance-free stucco home was painted in 2021 and has newer gutters and drainage system (2017). The three-car garage has a modern, quiet, garage door mechanism and track-style wall storage. The side yard is fully fenced, perfect for pets and entertaining. A whole-house generator and PGT hurricane impact windows (2017) complete your peace of mind. Two AC zones, newer water heater (2017), and energy-efficient enhanced attic insulation (2018) keep your utility costs down. University Place is a friendly and amenity-rich neighborhood with low HOA fees, two large, modern swimming pools, outdoor kitchens, playground, nature trail, meeting space, gym, and active social committee. Convenient to downtown Sarasota shopping and its famed arts scene. Just a half-hour drive to nearby beaches, fifteen minutes to the SRQ airport, this is the perfect first or second home.
