Property Description

First time on the market in Sapphire Shores! The house is reminiscent of a craftsman bungalow but more rooted in the rustic practicality and elegant modesty of the Florida Cracker. It’s a classic with wide plank pecky cypress siding on the exterior, clear cypress paneling in the primary rooms and heart pine flooring throughout. This location is just several lots from Sun Circle Park which overlooks Sarasota Bay and provides a perfect spot to launch a kayak or walk the dog during the prolonged sunsets over Longboat Key. The wide right of way on Woodland Drive has helped maintain a green, tree canopied street with a mix of Ringling Era Mediterranean manses and post war ranches. For someone who wants a piece of Florida history with a thread of continuity dating back a century when first purchased, this could be a dream project. An unpretentious house which may surprise you with simple honesty and authenticity in a location long considered one of the most desirable neighborhoods anywhere on the gulf coast of Florida.
