Description of 4973 SOUTHERN WOOD DRIVE, SARASOTA, FL 34241

Welcome to Bent Tree Village, a gated community that celebrates the pristine beauty of its natural environment. The lush landscape in a park-like setting with its spring fed lakes, natural vegetation and wildlife make this the ideal neighborhood for your next home. Southern Wood is a small cul de sac where homes burst with pride of ownership. This property has been meticulously cared-for by the original owners. As you enter the double front doors into the spacious foyer you see the open floor plan with vaulted ceilings looking out onto the large lanai. The home’s setting and views are one-of-a-kind with its extended vistas of one of the many common wooded areas and extended lake views. The home is a true split plan offering a large master suite with his and her walk-in closets and a large master bath with double vanity areas and a separate shower area. Off of the large spacious eat-in kitchen is a formal dining room for all of your entertaining needs. You also will find a spacious laundry room with cabinetry and laundry sink leading out to a large two-car garage. Pocket slider doors, built-in cabinetry and plantation shutters throughout are just a few of the homes charms that make it perfect for its new owners. The home is prime for an interior facelift but will be well worth it and add to the total value. Located east of I-75, you’ll adore the feel of the countryside with bright stars in the night sky and yet the proximity to golf courses, downtown Sarasota, and spectacular Gulf coast beaches.
