Check out 3D Virtual Tour. Incredible opportunity to live in the Country close to the City with all that Sarasota has to offer! This almost 7 acre equestrian estate is truly exceptional with a very private corner location backing up to Howard Creek. This was the Developer's own residence, so you know they picked a prime location! The Updated home sits high and the property slopes down toward the back of the lot creating a serene hilly effect with preserve area at the back of the lot and beyond. The front brick porch is only the beginning of the charm you'll experience throughout this tranquil home. Lots of updating has already been done for you. Newer paint inside and out. The spacious living room has a large wood-burning fireplace lined with brick. The kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances and has an eat-in nook and is open to the dining room. Beautiful Mexican tile floor in the main living areas not only look fantastic, but are easy to maintain. The master bedroom has been updated with high quality laminate flooring and has an attached open office/sitting area with French doors leading out to the pool area and a nice view of the expansive back yard. The master bath has been fully updated with new floors, fixtures, cabinets and quartz countertop. Lots of closet space! The first floor finishes off with two more bedrooms and another nicely updated bathroom plus a spacious indoor laundry room with a folding table and lots of storage. The fourth large bedroom is upstairs and comes complete with a huge walk-in closet. Perfect place to add a bath later and make it a private master retreat. New Metal Roof installed in 2018, AC four years ago, hot water heater two years ago. Wait till you experience this incredibly calming private view! Looking past the patio out over the large saltwater pool you'll see the gently sloping back yard with mature trees and preserve on the outer edges of the fenced lot. (NO flood zone here). The open pool stays warm almost year-round and has a newer variable speed pump. There is a large five stall barn included, as well as a separate shed on the west edge of the property. The horse run is already there, plus Myakka Valley Ranches has over 20 MILES of designated riding trails! This peaceful friendly country community has 321 parcels spaced out over about 2500 acres, each over five acres, and is an active community with a riding club, book club and women's clubs plus an events committee who organize holiday events for Halloween, Christmas, Fourth of July and many others, plus boat launch off one of the two community parks for kayak/canoes. "A" rated schools! With Myakka State Park right outside the community you can enjoy an outdoor afternoon or do some camping Old Florida Style.
