Live the ultimate Sarasota lifestyle in this beautifully updated bungalow in the perfectly located Gillespie Park neighborhood. This historic home is full of preserved architectural features including real wood floors, large scale baseboards, and classic-style trims. Walls of windows let in plentiful sunlight that bounces around the oversized rooms. The thoughtful kitchen renovation includes stainless steel appliances, butcher block counters, and refinished cabinets. A clever built-in breakfast bar provides a great place to eat or extra space to prep and serve. Plentiful living space continues outdoors where the deep front porch (featured in a 2020 Sarasota Magazine article about Gillespie Park) comfortably accommodates plenty of seating so that you can truly be a part of this "front porch neighborhood." The fully fenced backyard is an extension of the home as a private place to spend time while staying cool in the shade thanks to the mature canopy that the Gillespie Park neighborhood is known for. The detached garage is perfect for a yoga or painting studio, a home gym, or as a place to create a detached guest quarters. Additional upgrades include a new roof with hurricane straps (2020), tankless gas water heater (2017), PVC pipes, and the rebuilding and lining of the original brick chimney. Located a block from the shops and restaurants of the Rosemary District, 0.3 miles from Downtown Sarasota's core, and just blocks to the boutiques and restaurants of the historic downtown village you will never run out of locally-owned spots to eat, drink, or shop. Outdoor activities are also easily accessible since the home is located just blocks to both the Bay Runner trolley stop (a free ride to Lido Beach!) and Gillespie Park (a 10 acre park featuring shaded trails, playground, dog park, and tennis/pickleball and basketball courts). Don't miss this opportunity to own a piece of Sarasota's past while enjoying all that this beautiful city on the Bay has to offer.
