Now is your opportunity to own this rarely available WCI built “Sand Dollar” model home, located in the highly sought after amenity rich gated community of Sarasota National. This one-owner home was constructed with HURRICANE IMPACT GLASS throughout and is situated on one of the largest lakes in the entire community. Enjoy breathtaking water views while you relax on the BRAND-NEW extended lanai (2023) installed by one of Florida’s most trusted lanai builders, Absolute Aluminum. The lanai features hurricane roll down protectors, upgraded marble decking, 2021 installed outdoor kitchen, wall mount TV, and a clear view screen that allows you to enjoy the unobstructed water view. Inviting curb appeal includes upgraded landscaping, tranquil fountains, new lighting, and decorative rock work. The owners added gutters and downspouts to the entire home, and both the front porch, and the front door area were screened-in, allowing you to enjoy the cross breeze during the months when Florida’s weather is practically perfect. Inside, you will find upgrades that include tall ceilings, oversized tile, designer paint throughout, and upgraded ceiling fans and light fixtures. The open concept floor plan was smartly designed to capture the water views from every angle. The living area is large on space with a wall of sliders out to the lanai, and the dining room is flooded with light with 5 large windows. All of the windows in this home were outfitted with custom window treatments by Hunter Douglas. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining and is upgraded with dovetail constructed soft close drawers and wood pullouts in the lower cabinets. The countertops were upgraded in 2020 to a sleek exotic granite, and the dishwasher (2020), stove (2019), and refrigerator (2020) were also upgraded. The den is located just off the foyer and features double glass French doors… making this the perfect space for an office or an additional 3rd bedroom should you need it.
