About the property

Luxury Style Home

Located in beautiful sought after University Park Country Club this 2,700 sq. ft. 4 bedroom/3 bath pool home has it all! This home is situated in a pristine and well-kept, guarded and gated community on a nicely landscaped lot with privacy.

You will find relaxing by the pool is quite the treat and exactly what you have been looking forward due to our mild and beautiful weather year around here in Florida. The very large lanai (1,300 Sq. Ft.) features an outdoor kitchen including a gas grill, wash sink, mini fridge and seating for 12. Have fun enjoying some friendly competition for the whole family at a challenging game of Ping Pong on the lanai!!

Most recent upgrades include a completely remodeled gourmet kitchen to capture all your cooking and entertaining desires. New granite counters, cabinets and brand new stainless steel kitchen appliances have been added. Smaller appliances include a coffee pot, microwave and toaster. This kitchen is a must see and is fully loaded and stocked for your every day needs and perfect for entertaining your guests. There is an island and breakfast bar to seat four and a kitchen table to seat six and a separate formal dining area that comfortably seats six.

The home has new flooring throughout. Beautiful earth tile throughout the living area and all four bedrooms are carpeted. All bedrooms are beautifully decorated and have an abundant amount of closet space and more than enough drawer space for storage. All bedrooms provide Queen size beds and the 4th bedroom is equipped w/ two Twins.

The Master Bath has been beautifully upgraded and redesigned to include a his/her sink and a deep dish tub for those relaxing nights after a tough match of tennis, a long lazy day of golf or after walking miles of white sandy beaches.

This gorgeous home has a two car garage and a nice size laundry facility. Also, included in your stay, are three adult bicycles to use at your leisure. Helmets are included with the bicycles.

Centrally located within University Park Country Club you will be able to enjoy a well manicured golf course, consisting of 27 holes, designed by Ron Garl. While offering a challenge, the course is excellent for all skill levels. Surrounding the home you will find easy access to protected trails to walk, run or bike.

Located a very short drive you are very close to the brand new University Town Center (wow!), grocery stores (Publix, Whole Foods and Fresh Market are local favorites), casual to fine dining restaurants, arts, culture, theaters and of course, located close to our #1 beaches in the USA, Siesta Key Beaches. This property offers close access to I-75 and SRQ Airport. It is also only a one hour drive to Tampa International Airport.

A Gem of a Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in this beautiful house in the University Park Country Club. We have rented many homes over the years, but few have been so tastefully furnished and so well appointed. Also, the property manager was very responsive to our requests and questions. The infrastructure is remarkable with great supermarkets, restaurants and shopping malls just minutes away. We have already booked our next stay!

Awesome home and even better leasing/support team

  • 5 of 5

Lana and her team made this visit to a beautiful home in University Park (Sarasota) FL an absolute dream come true! Pictures do not do this luxurious home justice, with large open common areas, large lanai and pool w/ hot tub and ping pong table, and spacious master with three additional bedrooms and 2 more baths. We spent the week with our adult children and their brand new babies (our grands!) and everyone loved the home and surrounding area. Extremely private gated community with endless walking/running paths, championship golf course and tennis, and only a mile or so from SW Floridas newest mall at University Park. Again, we cannot say enough good things about the way Lana managed our lease, from early reservation through last minute requests on our end. We will be back!!!!

Owner's Response: We are very happy you found the home suitable to your needs during your stay. I loved that you all were able to spend the Holidays in this beautiful University Park home with your new Grands! Hopefully everyone splashed around in the pool and played a game or two of Ping Pong. We will see you next year Lance, Cyn and Fam!! Every single one of you were a delight to meet.

5 star vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was even more beautiful seen in person! Extremely clean,beautiful decor, and just well maintained as is the entire gated community it resides in. Pool is awesome with plenty of cool areas to relax when you have had enough sun for the day. Lana, the property manager is simply customer service at its best. She was so easy to work with, and quickly accommodated us with our last minute reservations! This home is surrounded with great restaurants of all types,(Loved The Half Shell),as well as shopping, including the relatively new University mall , just minutes away! Only wished we could have stayed longer!!!
