Gracious and airy, this 3-bedroom/2-bath end unit has soaring, cathedral ceilings, a glassed-in, extra large lanai overlooking private preserve views and a generous semi-open floor plan. Also included are a covered parking space and locked external storage. This condo is centrally located within Pelican Cove, one of Sarasota's most popular gated, waterfront complexes. It's a short walk from the front door to the most picturesque of the six heated pools, or to the serene deck at Pelican Point to watch the sun set over the bay. This paradise is found amid 75 acres of lush landscaped grounds with miles of scenic walking trails and paths, four lighted tennis courts, three clubhouses, an 87-boat slip marina, and its own "Pelican Cove University" offering a wide range of courses and many recreational clubs. Special events are featured monthly in the Pelican Cove Newsletter. Owners also enjoy the complex's bird sanctuary, botanic gardens, fishing pier, fresh water creek and spectacular coastal views.
