Step into the enchanting world of architectural brilliance, where nature embraces design in this meticulously crafted Mid-Century Modern gem. The property is now listed below recent appraisal. Nestled on a sprawling .6-acre canvas adorned with cedars, oaks, and palms, it's not just a home; it's a magical escape that provides peace and serenity. Talk about a great lifestyle, you’re a couple of minutes by boat to the Intracoastal Waterway from your deep water dock and a short ride further to the Gulf of Mexico. Designed by the visionary architect Robert A. Schennum and brought to life by the skilled hands of builder John Hartenstine, this residence is a testament to the marriage of artistry and craftsmanship. As you drive along the brick-pavered circular driveway, winding through the lush foliage, you'll feel the anticipation building for what lies beyond. Open the double doors to be greeted by vintage stone floors and high cypress ceilings in the foyer, setting the tone for the warmth that permeates every corner. Wooden floors seamlessly guide you through the home, while an abundance of windows invites natural light to dance within. The living room, with its vaulted cypress ceilings and wood burning fireplace, becomes a haven as walls of glass reveal captivating views of the deep water canal. Dine with a backdrop of the mesmerizing waterside in the adjacent dining room, connected to a kitchen that seamlessly blends efficiency with elegance. Granite counters, wooden cabinetry, and a water filtration system make this kitchen a culinary delight. A den/TV room awaits, providing a cozy retreat featuring an interior atrium of plants. Step outside onto the expansive screened patio, where tongue-n-groove and beamed ceilings create an oasis in which to enjoy the backyard and canal views. Venture upstairs via two staircases, front and rear, leading to the spacious Owner's quarters with transom windows and a wonderful balcony overlooking the grounds and canal. The Owner's bath exudes vintage charm with dual sinks, marble-top counters, and 50's style tiles. The adjacent office is a masterpiece of openness, featuring built-in bookshelves and abundant natural light. A bath and closet could be added for a 3rd bedroom if desired. The backyard, a literal sanctuary with a koi pond surrounded by lush vegetation, leads to a boat dock that once cradled a 32' sailboat. There is a whole house generator and the roof is only 7 years old. It's a one-of-a-kind home in a storybook setting, where every detail tells a tale of unique beauty. Conveniently located just one mile from the powdery white quartz sands of Siesta Beach and Siesta Village's boutique charm, you're also within reach of mainland Sarasota's vibrant entertainment, theaters, museums, shopping, restaurants, hospitals, and nationally acclaimed schools. Welcome to Hidden Harbor, where every day feels like a private paradise for nature lovers. Your dream home awaits—come celebrate the art of living!
