General Info


Video Tour

Tucked away on a peaceful street in historic Laurel Park, just moments from the heart of downtown Sarasota, this artful 1940’s cottage with guest house is brimming with vintage character while being graciously attuned to today’s lifestyle. In the principal cottage, abundant natural light enlivens each space, including the generously proportioned living/dining area. The master suite, located on the south side of the cottage, is adorned with skylights, a rustic brick fireplace, large dressing room and well-appointed private bath. The second suite opens to the gardens through French doors, and includes a bath with both indoor and outdoor shower. A comfortable den on the cottage’s north side provides a space for reading, work or simply quiet contemplation. For everyday living and entertaining, the cottage features two kitchens and a walk-in, temperature-controlled wine room for 320 bottles. Timeless finishes throughout include wood floors and elegant wainscoting. The second story guest house features two bedrooms, a bath and kitchen/living area. Shifting focus to the outdoors, the expansive fenced garden creates an oasis of lush privacy and features a modest pool for cooling off. Completing the home is a two-car garage with work bench. Laurel Park is a blissfully bohemian neighborhood offering a walkable, urban lifestyle within moments of downtown Sarasota’s shopping, dining, farmer’s market, cultural attractions and Bayfront.
