This is a wonderful custom-built home that exudes gracious living. It is perfect for a family or for people who love to entertain, as the floor plan offers many options. It is set on a corner lot that is over 8/10 of an acre and looks out over a lovely lake. Privacy abounds! A rare find in any home these days is a true 4-car garage -- welcome car enthusiasts or someone looking for a workshop! There are 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and an office, as well as a large living room, family room, dining room and even a bonus room/loft upstairs offering space for a playroom, studio or second office. The kitchen was redone in 2004 and offers plenty of workspace and storage as well as eat-in options. Outdoor living is fabulous, given the tremendous size of the screened lanai with a very generous amount of under roof area. The pool, spa and lanai were redone this year, making it feel fresh and inviting. Theres even a charming courtyard at the side entrance. ~ The Woodlands at Bent Tree is a friendly neighborhood of people who enjoy the mature trees, generous lot sizes and lovely lakes of this one-of-a-kind community. It is perfect for those who love to walk, ride bikes, walk a dog, etc., as the sidewalks meander for miles offering a fabulous scenic journey. Very conveniently located to the interstate, Siesta Key, downtown and more, the Woodlands is one of Sarasotas best communities.
