If you have been searching for a unique and non-Ranch style home in the South Gate area, you have found it! This elevated treehouse along the shores of Phillippi Creek is completely updated and sure to impress. The tropical setting gives the feel of a vacation home in Costa Rica, and inside there is nothing to do but relax and enjoy! The home was practically rebuilt only a few years ago and everything from the roof to the impact windows throughout to the upgraded electrical and smart home features are all ready and waiting for you, and now the property is also connected to the brand new sewer system! When you open the front door you will be delighted to find a grand great room and open floor plan flooded with natural light, and through every window, all you'll see is treetops. The home is nestled into the landscaping in a way that gives both total privacy and beautiful verdant vistas from every room - what a rarity in such a prime Sarasota location! The great room features soaring ceilings, and anyone who enjoys cooking or entertaining will be thrilled with the kitchen (those finishes! quartz countertops, KitchenAid appliances, including an induction stove & convection oven!), and the way it is completely a part of the living space. Two guest bedrooms and a large, luxurious, completely updated bath are also on this floor, plus a huge deck that is perfect for sitting serenely enjoying the trees and breeze or for gathering around the gas fire table with friends! Elevated outdoor space like this is part of what makes this treehouse home so special, and there is a second large screened porch upstairs off the master bedroom too! The abundant master suite occupies the entire second floor of the home and you'll be very pleased with the size of the bedroom itself - there is tons of room for a desk or sitting area in addition to the usual bedroom furniture, the stunningly updated bath with top-of-the-line everything, and the gracious closet. Imagine waking up among the trees to the sounds of softly chirping birds...so peaceful and exactly what you will find living here. Great storage is also something this home has in spades! The closets in each bedroom already feature custom built-ins, and there is a large amount of storage space on the first floor adjacent to the garage so you can store all your toys (kayaks!!!) within easy reach as well. Phillippi Creek winds right around the property, providing both a lovely view and the ability to paddle all the way to the intracoastal, and manatees have even been spotted nearby on occasion! It is rare to find an updated home with this much character in a setting with such natural charm, and the close-to-everything location is just the cherry on top - you'll be everywhere you want to go, including Siesta Key beach and downtown Sarasota, in 15 minutes or less...though with a gorgeous home like this set in the treetops, you'll probably want to just stay in... ;-)
