Enjoy the privacy of The Oaks Preserve in this mini estate, as your backyard is a pristine nature sanctuary and a deeded nature preserve. This Cape Cod style home has so much charm, is a hidden jewel, and is part the legendary Oaks Country Club. Bishops Court is a small, traditional, shaded, oak canopied neighborhood with flowering trees, a community pool and pool house, and is perfect for taking long walks. Graceful living is what you will find in this 3 bedroom, 3 ½ bath home with a heated pool and spa. The spacious study/library can easily be a 4th bedroom, and the upstairs loft is large enough for a gym, double office, or media room. Handsome wood floors throughout the home add to the ambiance. The great room’s focal point is a traditional brick fireplace, and a screened, 336 square foot enclosed Florida room with French doors is the perfect place to have a quiet dinner overlooking the gardens and pool. Invite your friends over on holidays to see the fireworks from the rooftop deck! This special home was designed by noted architect Frank Folsom Smith, and is unique in it’s design. The thoughtful design features a spacious kitchen with an island cooktop (gas range), granite counters, stainless appliances and built-in shelving to showcase pottery ware. There is surround sound throughout the home, a wet bar with a wine cooler, and a brick front porch to enjoy the majestic oaks and landscaping. The backyard pool and spa are very private, overlooking the preserve. In addition to the patio, pool and spa area, the home enjoys 732 square feet of outdoor deck space off the second floor and rooftop. Bishops Court is a maintenance free neighborhood, where lawn and landscape maintenance, and irrigation is included in the homeowner’s association. The Oaks Preserve has a staffed, 24 hour guard gate. Membership in the Oaks Country Club, one of Sarasota’s most established country clubs is required, and your key to membership is two championship 18 hole golf courses, tennis, pickleball, croquet, bocce, dining, and a full schedule of member events. Be sure to see this very special home.
