SPF Property of the Month: 8901 Fishermens Bay Dr.

Posted by Julian Yates on Friday, November 14th, 2014 at 2:33pm.

Oasis: that's the term I'd choose if asked to describe this loveliest of homes in a single word.

Thank goodness nobody's making me stick to a one-word description, however -- there is so much to love and enjoy at 8901 Fishermens Bay Dr. This 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath property is one of 17 residences making up the gated community of Fishermens Bay, an exclusive waterfront neighborhood with a romantic Key West atmosphere. Panoramic views of the lush backyard garden can be enjoyed from the sun deck and an extra-large, screened-in lanai. Last time I showed the home, my imagination filled with scenes of leisurely weekend brunches in this personal slice of paradise -- perhaps after a dip in the salt-water pool or a long soak in the heated spa. Surely you can see why I love what I do at Sarasota Property Finders!  

8901 Fishermens Bay Dr. is a perfect home if you're looking for your own private heaven, but it comes with all the trappings for throwing a great party, too. You've heard about the pool, the hot tub, and the spacious lanai; inside is a great room with 20-foot vaulted ceilings, an ideal spot for cocktail hour. Now that it's holiday season, my thoughts turn to family gatherings, the whole bunch sitting down for a meal in the formal dining room, or cozying up to the wood-burning fireplace. If you and your mates enjoy outings on the water, sunset views over the bay come with a dedicated boat slip!

A little bit about the surroundings: This property sits on the mainland side of the wonderfully scenic Intracoastal Waterway. Drive just a few minutes north to cross the bridge to Siesta Key and its world-famous beach, first-class food, fun island bars, and vibrant nightlife. Fishermen's Bay is also very close to the Sarasota Square Mall and the hidden gems of Gulf Gate, an up-and-coming neighborhood where you'll discover some of the city's best craft beer, gastropub cuisine, live music and sushi. Whenever you feel inclined to step outside the oasis for a minute, you're just minutes away from plenty of exciting things to see and do.
