This home offers privacy and serenity in a cul de sac of one of the most active communities in Sarasota! The Meadows community offers over 80 lakes and preserve areas, miles of walking/biking trails and 24 hour security. Vast indoor and outdoor areas make this home ideal for entertaining. The cleanly landscaped outdoors include a sizable covered front porch, but the outdoor gem is the fenced backyard with an expertly paved outdoor entertaining area and stunning covered pergola. The kitchen and bathrooms are tiled and the rest of the home is covered in gorgeous, must-see, golden teak flooring. With expansive countertops, full-sized appliances, and oversized breakfast bar that comfortably seats five, this spacious kitchen is truly worth the visit. The master suite is beyond impressive featuring a walk-in closet with built-ins, an updated master bath with jetted tub, and a full-sized attached study. Enjoy the winter nights with a wood burning fireplace, complete with wooden mantle and flagstone facing. This room opens to the spectacular outdoor patio. With all the tremendous features of this home combined with two guest rooms, updated guest bath, and the location of The Meadows, this home is a must see! The Meadows Country Club membership is optional, yet invaluable with three 18-hole golf courses, 17 Har-Tru tennis courts, a junior Olympic sized pool, spa, fitness center, pro-shops and dining venues.
