Avaliable for Seasonal Rental

1265 Tree Bay Ln
Sarasota, FL

This home is a beautiful waterfront beach bungalow located on Little Sarasota Bay on the desirable and less congested location of South Siesta Key, Sarasota FL. This sanctuary is within walking distance of the public amenities of Turtle Beach, the Tiki Hut Pub, Bayfront Yacht Works Marina and World Class Waterfront Dining.

From the main Midnight Pass Road, nestled in the East enclave of Tortoise Estates, a private coble stone lane takes you to this one-of-a-kind home which sits beneath a canopy of lush tropical trees featuring picturesque water views of the Jim Neville Marine Preserve.

This home was designed in the early fifties by Ralph and William Zimmerman of the Sarasota School of Architecture. They made use of the local Coquina Rock featured on its walls; the house is recognized by the Sarasota Historical Society for its unique design of the period.

Having been fully renovated, it is a water and nature lovers "heaven on earth" with a private boat dock as well as a private pathway to the Gulf of Mexico's Turtle Beach. The biggest decision you will have to make is whether to go boating, fishing, kayaking, spend time on the beach or just relaxing on the couch while enjoying the wildlife and water views.

A circular driveway boarder’s a tropical garden complete with a fountain and a cozy swing for two. A waterfall feature greets you as you ascend the 7 stairs to the etched glass double front doors.

Entering the home, you are immediately taken back by the nearly 30' expanse of glass overlooking the bay and the vast scenery that it provides. Many liken it to being on a boat or in a treehouse due to this unexpected view.

The main living area consists of an open floor plan of the living room, dining room and kitchen. The updated kitchen overlooks the great room and spectacular water view.

Fully accessorized with Restoration Hardware furnishings, the living space consists further of a Master Bedroom, Guest Bedroom and Movie room where the couch makes out to a bed if needed.
All three of these rooms have fully private ensuite bathrooms.

The Master Bedroom boasts a king size bed, credenza, walk in closet, double sink vanities, jacuzzi tub and shower.

Both the Master and Guest Bedroom, each located at the opposite ends of each other, occupy an east and west back deck. Both bedrooms are privately accessible from the front of the house. After coming back from the beach, you can enter via this deck and shower off in the indoor/outdoor shower before entering the house.
The other decks are bay front facing, providing intimate views of Little Sarasota Bay!

The Guest Bedroom features a queen size bed, dresser & office desk.

Descending a spiral staircase from the Guest Bedroom takes you to a ground level "She Shed/Meditation Room” Designed for relaxing, this is the perfect place for a nap or to sit in the swing chair under the overhang on the water's edge while listening to the sounds of this private patio's water features. A Unique Spot!

The Main Back Deck off the Great Room features a Natural Gas BBQ grill as well as a round deck table, with a gas fire pit built into the center of it.

From this Main Deck, stairs lead you down to a waterfront decked peninsula. This area includes a gazebo with swing seating for 4. Mounted to the side of this gazebo are Fishing pole rod holders. A 20 gallon live well is provided for your bait. Further down the deck is the 30' boat dock. Boat rentals are available from the marina just to the south or bring your own boat.

After walking home from that special time of day, watching the sunset from your private gulf beach access, the property will be bathed in a beautiful wash of outdoor landscape lighting. Your bay side lighting package showcases Underwater Lights, dusk to dawn.

Enjoy your stay and the healing environment this Oasis provides.
