Spacious layout and tranquil lake views in the gated Deer Creek community of Palmer Ranch. This single-owner home is ready for move-in or for complete customization. The serene lot is within minutes of downtown Sarasota and Siesta Key beach, as well as highly-rated schools and public amenities like the Legacy Trail. Four bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths span the single-story property with large central living spaces and vaulted ceilings adding a grand sense of space. Immediately through the double-door foyer is a formal dining room adjacent to the formal living area that passes through to a fully screened patio and pool. On the other side of the entrance hall, a private den offers flex space as a bedroom with half bath or as a work-from-home retreat. The master suite is situated privately beyond the den, with two sets of double doors to the patio for private access and optimal natural light. The enormous master bath features an extra-long double vanity, separate water closet, and access to the spacious walk-in closet. On the opposite side of the house, there are two additional bedrooms, each with full bath. One of the bathrooms has an exterior door so that it may be used as a pool bathroom. A dedicated laundry room adds function and direct access to the attached two-car garage. Adjacent to this wing is an informal living area with a bay of windows and several sliders opening to the patio and pool. The kitchen, with a center island and plentiful cabinets and counter space, is open to both the formal and informal living spaces for ideal flow and sightlines. Beyond the pool, established landscaping includes a gorgeous live oak that cascades shade with views of the water. Enviable location and a great layout complement the opportunity to reside now or fully renovate.
