Description of 6557 BLUEWATER AVENUE, SARASOTA, FL 34231

This substantial home has been enhanced and updated by the current owner to create a private, tranquil enclave, AND a home that offers great space for entertaining. The light, spacious and open living areas are full of surprises. Enter the private, walled courtyard through wrought iron gates to discover a huge, heated salt water pool (installed 2008) and sun deck. The imposing front door is framed with Spanish style iron grilles and leads to generously proportioned living room with 10ft ceilings, lighted tray and crown molding. Step down into a dining room with soaring ceilings and wall of glass doors to the covered lanai. Recently installed kitchen features wood cabinets, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Enjoy Florida outdoor living from the 12 x 24 covered lanai and adjacent patio, which offers lake views and overlooks a private, recently fenced yard. Other recent improvements include replacement windows (2008), Hunter Douglas solar blinds, re-piping (2012), new A/C (2012), and a whole house water treatment system. Huge 2 car garage with oversized driveway could provide further opportunity for conversion to living space and would make a wonderful new master suite. The one third of an acre lot would still offer space for a new garage and more. Located in the heart of Gulf Gate with easy access to shopping, restaurants, Siesta Key beaches and much more. Definitely NOT the usual Gulf Gate home, and must be seen to be fully appreciated
