A Quiet Retreat in Mote Ranch

Have you heard?

The downtown waterfront and beaches are no longer the only draw to our local area of Sarasota.  With expansion coming on all sides, Sarasota over the last decade has kept pace by creating other meccas around the county, making the former outskirts destinations all their own.  Allow me to introduce you to a small, north-of-University neighborhood called Mote Ranch.  It's located about 10 miles from downtown Sarasota, but only minutes from bustling Lakewood Ranch and always-growing and on-trend University Town Center Mall and the rest of the University Corridor, full of enough shops and restaurants to make downtown jealous!

Mote Ranch

This small community features mature landscaping in a tucked-away location.  The quiet neighborhood has a fishing pier, kayak launch, community center & pool, public playground, and its own nature trail.  It truly brings Florida's natural beauty to the forefront.

The eternal appeal of a walkable downtown lifestyle hasn't lifted, but if you desire a little more peace and quiet, our new listing in Mote Ranch is perfect for you!  Recently & thoroughly updated to have a super-spacious kitchen with built-in wine refrigeration and a gorgeous stone feature wall & 8' long electric fireplace in the living room, this nearly 2500 sq' home is a quiet retreat with a modern appeal.  Take a peek!

Soaring ceilings of 10-12' feet in height throughout the home make every space feel very open, and the multitude of windows keep the home light & bright!  The master retreat features a walk-out to the lanai, as well as a large master bath and two walk-in closets.

The ultra-private lanai opens up to the calm waters of a pond, where (yes, it's true!) sandhill cranes and other Florida fauna frequent.  A fenced in dog-run provides your best pal with a space all his own.
