Now that the improvements to Bee Ridge Road are nearing completion, Sarasota Springs is about to get a lot more popular. Only a few minutes from Downtown Sarasota and the University Town Center, this neighborhood boasts an extensive array of homes in a wide variety of price ranges.
To start off, the 3500-square foot home at 3211 E. Forest Lake Drive includes 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, a 3-car garage, and a detached in-law suite. With an asking price of $975,000, the kitchen comes complete with Bosch appliances and a gas range, the huge living room includes a fireplace, and the family room opens up to the screened in swimming pool and spa area. This spacious home sits on a ¾ acre lot with sprawling mature oak trees in the Old Forest Lakes community, and it has plenty of room for a boat.
If you're more of an equestrian than a boater, you might want to check out the 3,301-square foot home at 4625 Stone Ridge Trail. Sitting on more than a acre, the 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom home was built in 1979, when they really knew how to build them solidly. It also features a 3-zoned air conditioning system, an oversized 2-car garage, 9 ceiling fans throughout the home, and it just got a new roof in 2016. With an asking price of $729,900, this is great deal for a lot of space.
Situated on a little less than ¾ of an acre, the 2,844-square foot home at 4271 Woodview Drive also offered quite a lot of space in a natural setting in the Woodland Park neighborhood. This gem features 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a 3 and a half car garage, a 2-story foyer, and a downstairs ensuite with a separate courtyard. With the added amenities like the screened in pool and spa, the wood burning fireplace shared by the living room and dining room, and utility room with laundry chute, at $689,000, this home would be great for a growing family.
In addition to the 2 community pools, 2 tennis courts, and the clubhouse and weight room offered in The Lakes Estates, the 4-bedroom home at 4606 Trails Drive has a lot more to offer. The spacious master suite includes an office and two walk-in closets, a spacious bath with garden tub, and his/hers sinks. The home also includes 3 bathrooms, a bonus room that can be converted into a 5th bedroom, a second office/den, a library/music room and a spacious two-car garage. The pool can be heated either with gas or solar panels, and the huge living room features soaring ceilings, natural light, and a double-sided fireplace, shared with the master bedroom. The asking price is only $499,000.
Built in 2015, the 4-bedroom home at 838 Molly Circle is located in the family friendly, maintenance free neighborhood of Whitaker Park. This 2-story, contemporary home also includes 2 ½ bathrooms, a bonus room, and large eat-in kitchen. The 2,807-square foot house has great natural light, and the backyard oasis, including the pool and beautiful landscape, is a sublime retreat for $419,000.
80 Tall Trees Court is named appropriately for the great oaks on the property. Located in a gated enclave of 64 homes on a tree-lined street, this 1.908 square foot home includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a gorgeous kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a french door refrigerator with lower pull out freezer, wood cabinets, tile counter tops and a closet pantry. The over-sized lanai can be accessed by 6 different sliding glass doors, and your dogs will love having their choice of doggy doors, either to the lanai or the private dog run on the north side of the house. The air conditioning system was replaced in March 2014 and a new hot water heater was installed in 2015. This is a great deal for only $359,900.
