PEACEFUL PRESERVE VIEW, a huge setback from the street, and a lovely pond with turtle and water birds are pluses in this Dog-friendly neighborhood. Many upgrades include NEW A/C, fresh interior paint, arched doorways, double sliders to the screened lanai...and NEW CARPET AND FLOORING (Cor-tex high-end), all still under warranty. The large eat-in kitchen is complete with wooden cabinetry, a pantry, and NEW GRANITE & BACKSPLASH. A glass block window allows an abundance of natural light for your breakfast table. The double-pocket doors set apart the 3rd bedroom from the living area, or use this space for an office/den/or library. The master suite is well appointed with its own Lanai view, a walk-in closet, pocket doors to the bath with a garden tub and a separate shower. The sliding glass doors open to a screened-in lanai from which you can see banana trees, and a 30-acre preserve. Place a lounger on the extended paver lanai for views of a small lake and western sunsets. Best of all, Beekman Place is a hidden enclave with 5 sections. This section is GATED at night, requires a very LOW MONTHLY FEE which covers grounds maintenance, basic cable, two pools, and a tennis court. Being off University Parkway and Lockwood Ridge you will be just 5 miles from downtown Sarasota, 5 miles to UTC, or 5 miles to the airport. Residents enjoy jogging, walking and biking around our lakes, or shopping at the neighborhood Detwillers, Publix, or enjoying a movie at the $2 movie theater.
