"Own a piece of Ringling Brothers and Sarasota history with this fully-renovated Laurel Park home. Great opportunity for someone looking for a mother in law apt, art studio or separate office quarters. Originally built in 1925, the house was the former residence of Pat Valdo, who was known as the Grand Old Man of the Circus. This house was completely updated in 2017 to meet current energy codes but still retains its original charm. Situated on an oversized lot of 8,100 square feet, the home features restored pine flooring, 10-foot ceilings and a modern, open floorplan. Both of the bathrooms in the main house have been completely renovated with new showers, tile, and cabinets. The kitchen is brand new, with cabinets, soft-glide drawers, appliances and gas stove. Other upgrades include hurricane impact windows, wind mitigation, plumbing, air conditioning, electrical, circular driveway, and Icynene foam insulation in the attic, exterior walls and floors. The relaxing outdoor living spaces feature a 16x16 PVC deck with custom sail shade cover as well as a paver patio with a wood burning fire pit, an outdoor TV and speakers all perfect for entertaining! This home includes a separate cottage (650 sq feet of the 2,132 listed sq ft). The private cottage is 1BR/1BA and rents for $1,000 per month. With this property you can walk to downtown restaurants, comedy clubs, tennis courts, Payne Park, and so many other entertainment options. Truly urban living at its best! Great opportunity for AirBNB.... Owner Realtor"
