Run, don't walk, to this solid starter home right in the middle of the sought-after Gulf Gate area. Two full bathrooms, three bedrooms, and an open-plan kitchen with breakfast bar make this home easy to love. The huge laundry room/pantry combination give you more storage than most homes of its size. Plenty of light enters the living room through the updated windows and sliding glass door -- and beyond, an expansive open deck adds even more family living space. The back yard shed is wired and ready to become your workshop, or save you money on extra storage. Gulf Gate is close to everything, especially the beach (5 minutes)! Downtown Sarasota is 15 minutes, Sarasota Memorial Hospital plus dozens of world-class medical specialists are within 10 minutes, and around the corner Gulf Gate mall, Sarasota Square mall, Costco and Wal-Mart. Check out the great schools and the nearby YMCA Potter Park campus with its water park and wonderful attractions for the whole family. Or head south to Venice and Englewood for quieter beachcombing and old Florida charm. Don't let this one get away!
