City living in a park-like setting. Own a piece of Sarasota’s past in this historic home set in a premiere location off Hudson Bayou and within walking distance to Selby Gardens, Sarasota Bay, and downtown Sarasota. Originally built by Leon Pickett in 1923, Picket was an Advance Agent for Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Baily Circus and a construction engineer for John Ringling. A tour of this home reveals a signature sense of glamour from a bygone era blended with modern updates and sophisticated stylings. This home sits in a walled courtyard setting surrounded by verdant, tropical grounds. Once inside, it’s clear the quality of construction is paramount with newly refinished heart of pine wood floors, Sausalito tiles, wonderful wood ceilings, custom built-ins, and plate glass windows that bring the garden-like setting indoors. Prepare a sumptuous dinner in the newly updated kitchen with Italian-inspired cabinetry, granite counters, glass tile backsplash, and stainless-steel appliances. Fresh paint and a new roof provide peace-of-mind. Your guests will feel as though they’ve stepped back in time to the Gatsby era as you host elegant soirees outside by the heated pool and spa, surrounded by a tropical garden setting and large entertaining areas. An oversized attached garage completes the picture. You’ll cherish the space and privacy this estate provides while savoring the downtown lifestyle near restaurants, boutiques, and an endless variety of arts and culture
