"This large corner lot two houses from Bay Shore Road and a Sarasota Bay access trail has been in the same family for close to a century. It's a 1920 carriage house recognized as a duplex by Sarasota County. Downstairs is a spacious two bed, one bath apartment with concrete floors and large windows with sunlight streaming in from all sides. Double french doors invite you into the great room with an adjacent kitchen and the screened front porch looks out over the expansive, tree lined yard. The apartment upstairs is accessed by an exterior stairway. Here is another two bed, one bath unit with wood floors, antique doors and windows and a walk out deck putting you at tree canopy level. Spending time here feels like you're living in a sparsely populated area from years ago. This is the corner of 40th St. and Turks Cap, a little known, tree canopied, gem of a street along Sarasota's north side bay front. A single car garage is accessable from the side street so if you want to keep this property a duplex, occupants could have different points of entry and parking allowing privacy. There have been electrical and plumbing updates but this property is being sold As Is for Lot Value. If you're interested in a Farmhouse Chic renovation project there is no better candidate in Sarasota but you might also consider this a perfect spot for a new energy efficient, storm hardened home of your dreams."
