From the Zillow listing:


Sarasota history is yours to own! This 1925 bungalow is the cornerstone to the historic Maine Colony neighborhood. Registered in 2005, this charming little pocket of Sarasota is acknowledged with the National Historical Registry and is peppered with colorful and cozy little Florida cottages along the banks of Phillippi Creek. This quintessential Florida Cracker house has 2 bedrooms, a cozy living room, and a wrap around, air conditioned Florida Room. The finishes in the newly remodeled kitchen and bathroom were chosen to keep with the aesthetic of the home while also offering a clean, modern feel in the space. All of the heavy work has been done with a Brand New Roof (2022), Updated Electrical (2013), HVAC and Ductwork (2016), Water Heater (2018), Plumbing (2013), New Front Florida Room Flooring (2023), Mini Split in Florida Room (2023). Back structure was repaired and reinforced as well as an electrical upgrade in 2021. The large backyard is an open canvas with so much potential for a pool, ADU, workshop or garage. Anchored by the Phillippi Crest Clubhouse, this community allows the use of this “Old Florida” property for parties and gatherings and has regular concerts and events. More information can be found for the Phillippi Crest Community Club online with incredible videos of the neighborhood from the 1930’s.
