Looking for an absolutely lovely villa that has been immaculately maintained? Look no further! From the listing details you know it is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom villa with a den. Let's dig a little deeper and take a peek at what makes this one a gem. The pride of ownership is evident as this property has been designed with quality finishes and meticulously cared for making it a super easy property for the next owners. The floors are porcelain tile throughout, except for the guest bedroom which has laminate flooring. No carpet to mess with here! As the most important room in the house, the kitchen was fully updated with solid wood cabinets that have soft-close drawers and pull-out trays behind the doors. Don’t think that the good stuff stops there. Note the under-cabinet lighting, granite counters, designer pendant lights, recessed lighting, and the closet pantry. At the far end of the kitchen, you will find a built-in desk with cabinets and granite to match the kitchen. The kitchen sliders not only provide lots of extra lighting but also a small patio simply perfect to add a grill for your favorite outdoor cooking meals. The dining and living combine for a great room. They are separated by a very short step adding definition to the area. As you stand in the living area, if you take a peek up to the tall ceilings, you will see crown molding. In fact, there is matching crown molding throughout the unit. Off to the left, is your den or office. This room also has tall ceilings and the added benefit of two skylights which flood the room with glorious natural lighting. The master en suite is extremely spacious with plenty of room for a king-size bed, large nightstands, and dressers. You will also get two walk-in closets. Did you notice the master bathroom has been updated as well? Dual sinks, a good-size walk-in shower, separate water closet, and linen closet provide all you could want. The property also features a second bedroom that is at the opposite end of the home providing lots of privacy and a full guest bath, that, you guessed it, has also been updated. That isn’t all! There is a lovely Florida room that opens out onto a caged lanai offering you a peaceful place to sit, relax, and enjoy the view of nature and the pond behind the home. Other details you might want to note is that there are permanently affixed accordion hurricane shutters that are an easy-pull close that prep for bad weather in less than 15 minutes. Pop them closed, lock them up, and you are done! The updated garage door is impact resistant up to 170mph. The roof was just replaced in February 2021. The laundry room features a utility sink and a wall of closet space for additional storage. If that isn’t enough storage, just step into the garage. One whole wall has built-in cabinets, plus there is a tandem space that can be used for a golf cart or even more storage for bikes, kayaks, or just stuff. Since the Villa is so great, what about the community? Your condo fees cover the landscaping, so no more mowing for you! The fees also cover repainting the exterior of the property, the community pool, clubhouse, and tennis courts. Don’t worry pickleball players, the court is striped for pickleball as well. The property is located just north of University Parkway and provides you quick access to the world-renowned beaches of Sarasota and Manatee counties, shopping, restaurants, and all that you could want! Palm-Aire Country Club membership is available, but NOT mandatory.
