1659 Hawthorne


Right from the pages of Traditional Home, this Cape Cod charmer is set on a beautifully treed lot on one of the most architecturally diverse and popular streets in the Osprey to Orange corridor. Talk about walkability! Southside Village with myriad restaurants and shops in addition to Sarasota Memorial Hospital is only a block away. The vintage compound consists of the nearly 2,000 square-foot main house with its exterior a study in graceful design and symmetry. Also included is a separate guest cottage, shaded fenced back yard; and one-car garage with adjacent car port. Built in 1940 and updated in 2008 with the addition of a new master bedroom wing, the beautifully appointed home has two additional bedrooms and bath, separate living and dining areas, an updated kitchen with granite counters. Features include original strip Oak floors, built-in display shelving, an abundance of windows providing a light and bright interior and an atmospheric wood burning fireplace with a wood carved mantel. The centralized screened-in porch opens to the back-yard patio, guest cottage; and pavered motor court. The 840-square foot self-contained guest cottage offers two levels united by a spiral staircase, with the kitchen, living room and dining area on the first level and two bedrooms and bath on the second; just a few steps from the main house. A rare find in today's market.
