This retreat in historic Laurel Park, minutes from the heart of Downtown Sarasota, offers a 3 bedroom/3bath main house and a 2 bedroom/1bath guest house embedded into a tropical, fenced-in garden. The historic “J Walton Taylor Family Home” charms with it’s vintage character, while being graciously updated to today’s lifestyle. The kitchen/dining room/living room combination, is light and bright with French doors leading out to the terrace in the tropical back yard. For the wine enthusiast, there is a walk-in temperature-controlled 320 bottle wine room. The large master suite offers skylights, a rustic brick fireplace, dressing room, and an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom suite opens up to the garden and features a private bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower. The third bedroom can as well be used as a den or office, with a private bathroom. It is adjacent to a second kitchen which leads out to the covered and screened porch. The guest house is located over the spacious 2-car garage. A small, electrically heated pool surrounded by vegetation, completes the relaxed tropical feeling. The excellent walkability factor and its bohemian atmosphere reminds one of Key West. The Laurel Park neighborhood is an excellent alternative to high-rise downtown condo living. Quiet, peaceful urban living, only moments away from shopping, dining, farmer’s market, cultural attractions and Bay Front.
