About 5948 Myakka Valley Trail

Imagine coming home every day to complete serenity. As soon as you enter the neighborhood of Myakka Valley Ranches you begin to experience the calming effect of sprawling pastures, grazing horses and frolicking deer. As you turn into the gated driveway you take a deep relaxing breath as you glance at one of the two private ponds and the fenced pasture at the front of the property. At the end of the drive, you are greeted by the ranch style home and two barns. As you approach the home you are welcomed by the large covered front porch, which is a great place to enjoy a relaxing evening or a tranquil place to start the day. The front door opens to the living room with vaulted ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and views of your oversized screened patio with private pool and spa. There are four bedrooms, one in each corner of the home, providing everyone with privacy and two full bathrooms. The kitchen is located in the center of the home and features a breakfast area and formal dining space. The primary bedroom has a built in window seat where you can relax and enjoy the view of the other lake, the grand oak tree with swing and wood fenced pasture. There are two large closets and the en suite features a zero entry shower, soaking tub and dual sinks; a great place to relax and unwind. At the back of the home is a spacious family room, laundry room and half bathroom for a total of just under 2300 square feet. As you step outside through the sliding glass doors you hear nothing but peaceful silence and maybe a horse nay from the barns. The two barns have 8 stalls with two tack rooms. There is a carport, caged areas for chickens or other animals and a shed. This property aligns one of the community riding trails making access very convenient. Myakka Valley Ranches is Sarasota’s largest equestrian community and features 35 miles of walking and accessible saddle trails and two community nature parks for resident use. You can launch your kayak into Howard Creek which connects to the Upper Lake in Myakka River State Park. This state park offers 37,000 acres of natural Florida vegetation, bird watching, boat tours, a canopy walk and it neighbors this community providing easy access. Although you will connect with nature and enjoy the country lifestyle, you are less than 30 minutes to the white sandy beaches of Siesta Key and the art and culture district of downtown Sarasota. You can be to I-75 in less than 10 minutes and are within 20 minutes of restaurants and shopping plus this home is located in an A+ school district. If you work from home Myakka Communications offer fiber optic internet. You truly can have it all! Pre-inspection is available and most repairs have been made.
