Description of 1618 SOUTHBAY DRIVE, OSPREY, FL 34229

TIMING IS EVERYTHING, & what a great time to buy! Flocks of “snowbirds” have taken flight, resulting in sellers of newly offered homes being far less likely to try “testing the waters,” but rather in pricing realistically. In marketing their well-priced home now, these sellers have made this an opportune time to buy their tastefully updated property. Occupying a very private corner lot, this home exudes understated elegance & shows conscientious, meticulous maintenance. Its bistro-like combined chef’s kitchen, bar & family room have seen many friends & family eat, drink, & laugh over the years. Living, cooking, relaxing, & sleeping areas all open onto the sunny central pool, spa & shaded lanai, the essence of Florida living! An extra bonus is the uniquely useful office tucked away for privacy off the garage, which is called the engine that runs everything, so indispensable has it proven, while other special uses come to mind such as art studio or music room. Southbay Yacht & Racquet Club holds appeal for all age groups with diverse interests in addition to boating, tennis & walking or jogging throughout its many miles of trails. Ideally situated between culturally vibrant Sarasota & growing Venice, Osprey is known as a “laid-back state of mind with active bones”! Nearby attractions include beaches, parks, trails, waterfront dining you can boat or walk to, retail, medical & great schools (nationally renowned public Pine View School for the Gifted attracts folks from across the nation to Southbay).
