Something old, something new, something seamless, something you. This charming Arlington Park home has been updated and nearly doubled in size over recent years. Originally a two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath with an old, aging roof on a large beautiful lot. The former carport was closed-in to create a large storage and laundry room. The 2017 renovation: the kitchen was stripped to the studs and rebuilt for logical placement of appliances. The new construction involved raising the slab and relocating plumbing and sewer. Additions include a new master suite, laundry room, rear porch with Trex decking to match existing and the three-car garage. The sunroom was rebuilt, damaged wood replaced and new drywall. New roof was added over the entire home with new gutters. New ductwork and insulation, new electrical panel and hard-wired smoke and carbon dioxide detectors throughout. New thermo-pane windows in the old portion of the house and the new construction, most are impact-rated. The large wood awning windows in the living room and sunroom were retained as they are architecturally significant and allow for amazing airflow during the cooler months. New sewer line to the street and landscaping were installed. Of note, the electricity to the house is underground from the pole by the shed and not overhead. All gutters are plumbed underground and bubble up in the yard. Motion-activated security lights at all four corners. The garage features an impact-rated French door and fully insulated walls and roof. The rear yard is fully fenced with double gates on the north side, allowing for boat or RV storage. The home is surprisingly efficient, with two HVAC systems allowing for customized settings. The exterior of the home is nearly maintenance-free with Florida-friendly vegetation and weather-hardy building materials. Arlington Park is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Sarasota with its close location to downtown, St. Armands Circle, Payne Park, Southside Village, Sarasota Memorial Hospital and our world-class white sandy beaches. This is a rare opportunity not to be missed.
