About 871 Macewen Drive
Sited on arguably one of the best lots in The Oaks Club, this beautifully updated Georgian-style home and guest house blend perfectly with the surrounding landscape to deliver both privacy and stunning golf course views of the Heron Course’s 13th green and adjacent wooded preserve. The outdoor space is truly special and includes a large covered front porch and a rear lanai that leads to the open and spacious outdoor living area with an oversized sports pool and spa. This home has been brilliantly renovated by the current owners to honor the original character while elevating the design and finishes to represent today’s style of living. The large welcoming covered front porch sets the stage for a one-of-a-kind home designed for entertaining and family gatherings. The completely new kitchen, perfectly positioned between the formal dining room and the family room, is a dream and boasts white cabinetry, white and gold tile backsplash, farmhouse sink, walk-in pantry, Calcatta quartz countertops, and peninsula with counter height seating and waterfall edge. The chef-quality stainless steel appliance package includes a Meile 6-burner range with griddle, exhaust hood, built-in coffee machine, Bosch microwave drawer and dishwasher, Thermador refrigerator, and a EuroCave tall wine cabinet. Just off the kitchen is a light-filled office space perfect for helping with homework or work while preparing dinner. The large living room includes a fireplace with herringbone marble and wood façade while the more casual family room features banks of windows and doors that open to the screened back porch. The spa-like owner’s retreat looks out onto the pool and backyard and includes a sitting area, a huge custom-organized closet, dual vanities, a tub, a shower, and a water closet. A large study/den and amazing laundry/mud room with access to the outside, complete the first floor. The additional three bedrooms on the second floor each have their own bathrooms and walk-in closets, while two of them include hidden play spaces or extra storage. The separate one-bedroom guest house includes a beautifully updated kitchenette, bathroom, and workout area. Three newer air-conditioning units for the main house, an electric vehicle charging station in the garage, and AstroTurf surrounding the pool area complete this amazing property. The Oaks Club, one of the area’s most exclusive private clubs features award-winning golf, tennis, pickleball, a pool, a fitness center, and multiple dining options. The location is minutes from nationally ranked Pine View School, the Legacy Bike Trail, Siesta Key, and Casey Key beaches, and all that Gulf Coast living has to offer.
