Property Description

Cash Price is firm. Unique opportunity to own a piece of Sarasota circus history. This ‘jewel-box’ cottage was constructed in 1941 (when Sarasota had 29K residents) of Pecky-Cypress, Cedar and old-growth Southern Pine.

Oversized lot (1. 5 lots) w/privacy fencing. Several adjacent homes on this block built by same architect.

Located in the Historic Sapphire Shores/Indian Beach Neighborhood. West of Trail, one block to bay front park (for sunset celebrations/kayak launch), and a stone’s throw to Ringling College of Art and Design.

Private backyard oasis with lush tropical landscaping creates a botanical garden atmosphere.
Walk 100 ft. or less to microbrewery, vegetarian restaurant, coffee-shop/book-store/cafe, hair salon, gym or Peruvian restaurant!

Pecky Cypress is beautiful to look at, extremely durable, and resistant to both rot and insects like termites, roaches, etc.

Smells like an old library. No drywall in home. Garage would make a great In-Law apt, efficiency apt or space for visitors.

Circus performers in 1940-50s set up trapeze in back yard (old concrete caissons still visible). The famous circus gorilla M’Toto, (whose full name was Mademoiselle Toto, she was married to Gargantua) lived on this street. Imagine having a world-famous gorilla for a neighbor.

If buying to develop oversized lot, Buyer must allow Seller to move home from this parcel. Have seen too much Sarasota history razed.
