This is truly the most iconic home on N. Washington Dr. on St. Armand’s Circle! Imagine a beach cottage on Sarasota Bay with the most amazing views of downtown Sarasota! The original architect of this stunning home was the acclaimed Frank Folsom Smith – with his wife, Anne Folsom Smith, as the designer. Upon entering, allow your breath to be taken away by the panoramic water views, and become enveloped with the coastal vintage ambiance. The home opens up to a sitting room with a beautiful rustic fireplace plus a living room to the side. The updated kitchen serves as the cornerstone of the space, overlooking the living and dining rooms. Upgrades include elegant quartz countertops, new backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. The master suite is a serene retreat with French doors leading to the outdoor terrace and garden. The guest bedroom is located in a separate wing of the home, near a private side entrance. There is an expansive den/media room that has been converted from 2 bedrooms, and could easily be converted back into a third bedroom with an addition of a closet. The renovations have occurred at several intervals and reflect the warmth and casual lifestyle of island living. Envision yourself relaxing on the porch swing as you inhale the gulf breezes and gaze upon the chromatic sunsets. This exquisite property sits on two lots with 114 ft of frontage, and just yearns to be enjoyed. St. Armand’s Circle provides an ideal location with walking distance to the beach, fine dining, and shopping!
