Enjoy exclusive downtown living in the storybook setting of Burns Court Villas, a private gated community of mediterranean-inspired villas filled with old world charm. These unique homes surround a courtyard garden sanctuary offering walking paths through tropical plantings, statues, fountains, pool and spa. This three-story upper tier residence offers privacy from the street and has an elevator from the secure garage, which opens to an inviting terrace overlooking the pool and gardens as well as a private elevator inside of the unit. As one of the larger floor plans in the community at 2,124 square feet, this end unit offers three beds and three baths. The envy of neighbors, this pristine villa underwent a major renovation in 2020 including the kitchen, all three bathrooms, high-end wood flooring, living room built-ins, wine bar, laundry room, custom closets, all new appliances and fresh interior paint. A highlight of this unit is the spacious private courtyard retreat off the kitchen with lush tropical plantings, firepit, seating, & barbeque grill. Also adding to the charm are balconies off of each bedroom with garden and city views. Additional features include huge walk-in master closet, quartz countertops in kitchen and baths, 10 ft. ceilings, impact windows/doors, plantation shutters, solid core doors, and new LED canned lighting throughout. Kitchen has induction stove, but gas connection present. Tucked in the heart of downtown Sarasota, this hidden gem is just steps from world-class dining, theater, shopping, Marina Jack, Bayfront Park, and approximately a half mile to two supermarkets. Take a relaxing walk down the block to the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings to pick up fresh vegetables and pies or enjoy the world class beaches of Siesta Key and Lido Beach as well as St. Armand's Circle...it’s' all just minutes away. This Villa is offered fully-furnished. Unit includes two deeded secure parking spaces and private storage unit.
