For decades, Harbor Acres has been one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Sarasota.
It offers stunning views of the Bayfront, elegant waterfront and garden homes and convenience to the best areas in Sarasota. The neighborhood is just a short walk to the ever popular shops and restaurants in downtown Sarasota and Southside Village.
Professionals, retired executives and families make their home in Harbor Acres, seeking the classic charm of the quiet Sarasota community.
It can be hard to find the perfect home in Harbor Acres for one main reason – people don’t want to leave. Harbor Acres homeowners tend to live there for many years, so when a stunning Harbor Acres home goes on the market, you have to snap it up quickly.
That’s why I’m so excited about my new listing at 1204 Hillview Drive in Harbor Acres. It’s a timeless 7,600+-square-foot home , listed for $7,750,000, built in 2008 and designed by award-winning architect Clifford M. Scholz.
Scholz is known for his stunning coastal classic homes. In fact, a Scholz-designed home on Longboat Key was a finalist last year in the Wall Street Journal’s House of the Year awards.
The five-bedroom+ home at 1204 Hillview Drive has sweeping Bayfront views that span the tip of Harbor Acres. All the major rooms enjoy beautiful views plus the two 50’ terraces are perfect spots to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the nightly sunsets.
And the home’s waterfront master wing gives a true sense of luxury, with his and hers baths, closets and a study. The perfect place to relax and prepare for the night’s gala.
The resort-like pool area is the ideal spot for entertaining and enjoying some weekend family fun. A refreshing swim in the pool can be followed by a bay cruise – the home includes a dock for quick and easy boating expeditions.
Given all of the many attributes, it’s easy to see why homes in this neighborhood are so prized and why 1204 Hillview Drive might just be the ideal Harbor Acres home.
