Welcome to Palm Lakes, a vibrant, maintenance-free gated community of single family homes neatly adorned with barrel tile roofs and paver driveways. It features a heated pool, and a new playground area, including corn hole. The club house offers ping-pong, billiards, and planned events. Live here, and be within minutes of the Sarasota airport, UTC shopping area, restaurants, schools, and the first-class beaches of Lido and Siesta Key! Located on a coveted corner lot,this single family villa is accessed by way of a lush, landscaped courtyard. Enclosed by a wrought iron gate, this space adds to your living area as well as privacy. Imagine your pets out romping through the grass, or outdoors grilling friends on a beautiful day. Drawn past the bold door, the entryway also makes a statement, with the generous foyer leading to a large living room with high ceilings and an open, airy feel. The kitchen/dining room combo expands entertainment possibilities with sliders to the screened-in lanai. Features of the large primary bedroom include an alternative set of sliders to the lanai, a sitting area framed by decorative columns, and clerestory windows provide a view of the tropical tree-tops, as well as a wash of light. The en-suite includes a large shower, dual sinks, and a walk-in closet with custom built-in cabinetry. The second bedroom currently doubles as an office, with a removable desk built into the closet. Guests will be pleased as pocket doors to the secondary bathroom allow another access point besides the hallway. A conveniently-located laundry room, 2 linen closets, and shelving in the garage provide many storage options. While the home exudes a coastal feel with its warm colors and finishes inside, including tile floors and recently painted walls, the truth is that it is a palette which would suit many tastes. Make it yours today!
