Description for 5246 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota, FL, 34234

Three Bed, Three Bath home in Sapphire Shores! This Bay Shore Road address is just a short stroll to Sun Circle Park on Sarasota Bay. It might be about as close as you can live to the water and NOT be in a flood zone! And you are adjacent to some of the most majestic and established cultural institutions in Sarasota. The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, the “gilded era” mansion & museum Ca’ d’Zan, The Asolo Repertory Theater, The Sarasota Ballet and more. But location is not all this place has going for it. You’ll also find a unique, split bedroom floor plan allowing many living opportunities. Two of the bedrooms are “en-suite” and one has a private entry. Maybe this is perfect for a visiting artist in residence? A professor from nearby New College of Florida or USF? Or a roommate wanting independence and privacy. There is garage access and street frontage behind on Eastchester Drive. This keeps the front lawn along Bay Shore Road open and green. The site lines in Sapphire Shores are the longest in town and your views will take in the vintage homes and mature landscaping of a well-established neighborhood. Additional interior features of this classic ranch include oak, hardwood floors throughout, a wood burning fireplace and dramatic chimney (it’s been a while since used) and an updated kitchen in the middle of the home tying together this space with a living room, dining room AND a family room. A unique, outdoor breezeway can be used as a “covered courtyard” greatly expanding the indoor/outdoor potential of this property. The breezeway leads to a multi-functional garage with a workshop perfect for the hobbyist be it woodworking or cars. There have been multiple updates over the years with the most recent being a new roof in 2022. This location on Sarasota’s north side, just 2 miles from downtown and near the University Parkway corridor anchored by Sarasota Bradenton International Airport on the west and University Town Center shopping district on the east. There is no more convenient location to be found!
