Burns Court at the front door and Palm Avenue at the back, in the heart of Downtown Sarasota.
Just steps from Marina Jacks waterfront – the perfect downtown Pied-a-Terre, an ideal space to showcase your business with great visibility and private parking, or your very own creative blend of private live/work. Current owner has it built out as an artist’s studio with living space; previously was law firm with 5 offices. Original charm with wood-burning fireplace and new hurricane windows. Ability to update or extend within the downtown core RS5 zoning which allows work live options. Enjoy the mixed-use neighborhood of Burns Court out your front door, the Saturday city market just a few blocks away, keep your boat at Marina Jack’s one block away, walk your dog in city island park, with romantic restaurants and art galleries off of Palm Avenue just steps from your backdoor. It is clear this is one of the most desirable areas in all of Sarasota. But the real beauty lies in the possibly and potential this property holds. With the largest lot in Burns Court there is ample room to preserve the historic 1920’s home while adding 2,500+ square feet of live/work ground floor space at the back. Convert the current flat roof into a 1,000 sq ft Zen-inspired roof top terrace with staircase access or commercial elevator - a feature few homes in Burns Court or downtown can offer. Unlike any other, this property offers a private drive and 4+ car parking. Zoned Downtown Core, this gem is full of endless possibilities! Design your own private downtown lifestyle or office with no HOAs or community/landlord rules.
