When most people think about the waterfront in the Sarasota area, they think of our gorgeous white sandy beaches on our Barrier Islands.  This recent Michael Saunders Blog shares waterfront lifestyles on the beach, on the Bayfront, on canals, rivers, bayous and creeks.  I am thrilled that it names one of my listings at 2300 Wason Road with 300’ on the scenic Phillippi Creek as a great example of waterfront living.

The views from 631 Waterside Way are spectacular!  There’s already a 12,000 lb. lift at the property with a great dock, fish cleaning station.  In addition to wonderful waterfront, the home is like a “breath of fresh air”.  High ceilings, two waterfront master suites, home theater, kitchen with water views, pool with lap lane on a private, cul-de-sac street.
