About 1172 Horizon View Drive

Gulf beachfront homes are a rarity on Siesta Key, and this one is very special! Located on Turtle Beach, this Casual Coastal designed home offers naturalists the opportunity to live harmoniously on a shoreline preserve that is a nesting spot for loggerhead turtles and home to gopher tortoises. If you desire a quiet beach with a nature vibe, this home is for you. Located at the south end of Siesta Key in Tortoise Estates, this four-bedroom home offers more than 100’ of beach frontage. About 250’ of protected sand dunes, with native sea oat and seagrape habitats, provide natural storm protection and a privacy buffer between the home’s patio and the expansive sandy beach. This lovely getaway is waiting for you to add your custom touches but can be enjoyed as is for now. Nearly 4,000-square-feet of living area spread across two levels welcomes you with clean lines, storm impact windows, sliders and exterior doors, plus three-stop elevator, a neutral palette, and cathedral ceilings. The main living level consists of an open concept living/dining room with walls of glass sliders. The heart of the home is the eat-in kitchen and adjoining family room with its cozy fireplace, cathedral ceiling, and wall of glass sliders. The private primary suite is ready for your personal upgrades. Completing the main floor is the office bathed in morning sunshine. Each room on the on this level offers sliding glass door access to the 80’ screened porch, featuring spectacular Gulf views and inspiring sunsets. The upper living level is an inspiring respite for your guests. Overnight visitors have a choice of two spacious bedroom suites with glass sliders that access a private sun deck showcasing a panoramic view that stretches from Lido Key across the azure Gulf waters to Casey Key and the Venice Inlet. The third guest bedroom is just across the hallway. The ground floor is an expansive area with tile floors and a wall of glass sliders that open to the pool deck. This space provides a cabana area for hosting poolside gatherings and room for your fitness equipment. The heated saltwater swimming pool, oversized heated spa and outdoor shower are all a part of the private outdoor entertaining area. A three-car oversized garage provides ample storage for all your water sport toys! Turtle Beach and the 20+ acre Palmer Point Beach Park, only accessible by foot or watercraft, links Siesta and Casey Keys and offer miles of uninterrupted shoreline and acres of natural habitat to explore and enjoy. The neighborhood has several walkable restaurants. A public boat launch at Turtle Beach and an intercoastal marina are available for boating enthusiasts. The free Siesta Key trolley originates at Turtle Beach and provides a safe and convenient way to reach Captain Curt’s, Crescent Beach, and Siesta Key village. South Siesta Key is a surprisingly short drive to downtown and all of Sarasota’s “Cultural Coast” offerings.
