8501 MIDNIGHT PASS RD, Sarasota, FL 34242  

The cumulative age of the majestic Oaks that stand guard over this one-of-a-kind property must surely reach into the thousands, each telling a story and creating a special ambiance one can only understand by being there. These Oaks together with amazing natural Florida foliage are the backdrop for pavered pathways that wind throughout this enchanting 3 plus acre Bayfront site. The grounds are magical in and of themselves but become sublime as you take in the views offered by almost 300 feet of direct water frontage. The expansive patios, porches, gazebos and sunrooms of the Key West style main house were designed to fit comfortably within these natural surroundings and absorb views from every angle-whether waterfront or focused over the manicured grounds. This casual and charming 3 bedroom, 3 and one-half bath home blends seamlessly with its surrounding creating enchanting and cozy spaces both inside and out. The Bayfront guest house with its covered porches and outdoor spaces is wonderfully tranquil and the 3 bedrooms and 2 and one-half baths are perfect for guests or extended family. Another cottage on the property is a blank slate but would be ideal as a fitness center with its own pool, or as a studio or as additional room for guests. A picturesque portico welcomes you to this estate and the resort like setting is made complete by the lighted tennis court, sport court, multiple pools and two docks offering various boat lift and mooring options.
