One or more photo(s) has been virtually staged. Where in Sarasota can you find a 30-acre community with mature landscaping that is maintenance-free and located just one mile from the University Town Center and all that it offers? Grande Oaks Preserve is a timeless beauty with its manicured grounds, grand live oak trees, aquatic bird-friendly pond, and majestic fountain. Eighteen of the 30 acres are dedicated preserve lands. As you drive up to the gated front entrance and wind down the tree-lined private road, you will arrive at building 8, the newest of the five buildings constructed. The private lobby has marble flooring and an elevator that takes you to the second-floor condo. Step over the threshold and walk through the coffered foyer into the living room, and you immediately notice the stunning view of the pond and the fountain. Open the impact-resistant sliders on the screened and enclosed patio, and you will hear the songbirds and see the wetlands' aquatic birds. This split-plan layout sequesters the owner suite from the guest bedroom. The primary bedroom is an elegant retreat that overlooks the greenbelt and has private access to the enclosed lanai. The owner's bathroom is en suite and features dual vanities, a boudoir space, a walk-in closet, a jetted bathtub, a walk-in shower, and a linen closet. The guest bedroom is across from the kitchen, next to the second bathroom. The large den with French doors can effortlessly convert to a third bedroom. The kitchen has new appliances, granite countertops, a pass-through bar, a breakfast nook area, and a built-in pantry. Unit 2C has undergone many improvements, including new painting of all walls and baseboards, luxury water-resistant vinyl wood-look flooring, new carpet, and new washer and dryer, allowing the next owner to put their imprimatur on the condo without having to do all the renovations. Ask for the list of upgrades and improvements. The under-building garage is secured and gives direct access to the elevator lobby. Building 8 is one of the buildings with a trash chute on each floor for easy disposal of waste. Each Grande Oaks Preserve condo has one deeded parking space and an air-conditioned private storage locker for kayaks or beach accouterments. There is an open rack for storing bikes. Centrally located to everything needed (like Whole Foods Market, Staples, and Home Depot), this gem is only a half mile from many vendors or service providers. There are multiple electric-vehicle charging stations within 1 mile of the subdivision. Nathan Benderson Park, less than two miles from the condo, offers jogging/biking/skating trails, playgrounds, picnic tables, aquatic equipment rentals, and international rowing facilities. Lido Key Beach is only 12 miles from the community. Nationally ranked Sarasota Memorial Hospital is 9 miles from the property. The quarterly fees include the resort-style amenities: lighted Har-Tru tennis courts, heated swimming pool, two hot tubs, fitness center, a clubhouse with kitchen, living room, and dining area. This quintessential community offers a tranquil, private environment located a short distance to the hubbub of Sarasota University Town Center.
