About 5360 Myakka Valley Trail

UNDER CONTRACT ACCEPTING BACK UP OFFERS! STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL, PRIVATE LOT with one-of-a-Kind Romantic Log Home in Myakka Valley Ranches! Follow the winding driveway up through the woods with old oaks, Spanish moss, and ferns. To your right you will see the completely rebuilt, storm-resistant, red barn, containing a 450 SqFt airconditioned office (wo/mancave), a 1-car garage/workshop, and a huge storage loft. A sturdy 30’ x 30’ lean-to with three stalls, feed room and big tack area complements this very valuable outbuilding. Next, in the middle of the 5.5-acre lot, you will see the recently renovated 1,700 SqFt grey log cabin with an inviting rocking chair porch with a natural slate floor, and a butterfly garden in front. The cozy home features an open floorplan, with a combined light and bright living room, dining room and kitchen with breakfast bar. A vaulted ceiling, fireplace, honey-colored pine floors, and French doors to the pool deck, add lots of character to this unique home. A hallway leads to the laundry room/half bath, and the two guest bedrooms; one has a view of the pool and the grounds, while the other has a beautiful en-suite bathroom with a big walk-in shower and a double sink. An open, comfortable staircase leads to the big master suite, whose private balcony offers lovely views of the pond, a huge granddaddy oak, and pastureland. The master suite has a beautiful walk-in shower, a big vanity with two sinks, and a separate toilet. The back porch and pool deck are tiled with the same natural slate as the front porch. This big porch (8’ X 43’) faces north. The self-cleaning salt water pool has been resurfaced not too long ago. The 30’ x 30’ barn has been rebuilt from the studs up, with metal siding, and a standing-seam steel roof. It is equally split between an airconditioned office and a garage/workshop, while a 15’ x 30’ storage loft has been added over the study. The attached 30’ x 30’ “horse quarters” feature 3 stalls, a small feed room, and an area for tack. Home, barn, and pool area have been extensively remodeled/improved in 2016/17. The land is high and dry, and is fenced and cross fenced. It has the ideal balance of beautiful wooded areas, and enough pasture for a couple of horses. There is a big pond with a small island on the northeast side of the lot. Myakka Valley Ranches is one of the biggest equestrian communities in Sarasota County. It attracts not only horseback riders, but also those who value living in a beautiful, natural setting; ca. 280 families share some 2,400 acres. There are miles of deeded saddle trails (also great for walking or jogging), and the roads are private with only one entrance. Since the subdivision borders Myakka River State Park, Florida biggest state park (37,000 acres), the wildlife that one encounters in “The Valley,” as the locals call it, is breathtaking. Excellent schools (including a new ODA campus around the corner, which will open this Fall), fine restaurants, and all kinds of shopping opportunities are within easy reach, while the beautiful, white beaches of the Gulf of Mexico are only 30 minutes away, as is Downtown Sarasota with its many cultural amenities (museums, fine dining, theaters, libraries, an opera, symphony orchestra, you name it). Come and see for yourself why Myakka Valley Ranches is sometimes called the last frontier of Sarasota County!
