Spectacular views of Sarasota Bay and the twinkling lights of downtown greet you from nearly every room of this south-facing, direct bayfront four bedroom, four bath home in Country Club Shores. Perfectly situated on an oversized, corner parcel, this boater's paradise offers more than 240 feet of water frontage. The boating enthusiast will love the tranquil bay waters on two sides, almost 90-feet of dockage featuring shore-power, a 27,000-pound lift, and plenty of space for an additional lift. The split level layout provides light and bright spaces, excellent for entertaining. The formal living room offers a gas fireplace and hardwood flooring that leads to the formal dining room. For added convenience, this home provides access to the lanai from almost every first-level room. Walls of glass in the family room create the ideal place to appreciate morning sunrises. The master suite is located on the first level for more privacy. Retreat to this suite and enjoy porcelain tile flooring, his and her walk-in closets and a massive updated spa-inspired bath. A master-sized suite and two additional guest rooms (one is equipped with built-in desk and shelving) adorn the guest level, featuring newly installed plush carpeting throughout. Country Club Shores is a lovely waterfront community, centrally located just a short drive from the best that Longboat Key offers. Easy beach access is only a bike ride away.
