1231 S Orange Ave


This charming residence at 1231 South Orange Avenue was built with a craftsman style in the 1950s and was completely updated in the 1990s to include another level for the owner's retreat. The 2,319-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three baths. A detached garage is at the rear of the approximately quarter-acre property. As you enter the home from a long and wide front porch, you immediately notice the two-story vaulted ceiling with a powerful fan perched at the top and two skylights, making the room very airy and comfortable. The oak wood floors extend into the dining area with an elevated ledge for picture display and other objects. Its renovated kitchen and eating area was professionally designed in 2019 and includes a banquette with covered storage, luxury vinyl plank flooring, subway tile, white shaker cabinetry with soft-close drawers, glass-front shelves with inside and underneath lighting, quartzmcountertops, KitchenAid oven, microwave and dishwasher, a side-by-side LG refrigerator and hand-crafted pendants that add a touch of elegance above the single-bowl stainless steel sink. The den flows from the kitchen with a wood-burning fireplace and leads into an enclosed backyard, which is beautifully landscaped in a park-like setting with a brick patio and outside shower. Each of the four bedrooms exits through French doors onto a balcony porch or patio, which makes outside living enjoyable and unique. You enter the second level of the residence from a circular stairwell to a landing with a custom bookcase and a wide sitting area overlooking the living room and dining rooms. It flows into a very spacious master bedroom with two walk-in closets and an outside balcony for viewing people walking, biking or watching the Fourth of July fireworks over Sarasota Bay. The master bath was recently updated, including glass shower doors, a soaking tub, double sinks and a pocket door to the water closet. A skylight provides natural light. A French door from the dining room leads you to a portico and garage with an attic and cabinets for storage and an expansive work surface. An extra full-size refrigerator is an added bonus. The home is kept quiet by the installation of double pane windows that buffer most outside sounds. The 3M product covering the inside of the windows adds additional protection. The Seminole Heights community is within easy walking distance to Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and in close proximity to Southside Village, coveted Southside Elementary School, Sarasota's vibrant downtown, medical facilities and shopping venues.
