If your vision of moving to Florida includes palm trees swaying in the tropical breeze, towering oak trees dripping with Spanish moss, and flowers blooming all year round, then it's time to discover The Meadows in Sarasota. This comfortable and affordable 2-bedroom/2-bath villa is in the center of The Meadows and has undergone a recent renovation. New pavers lead to the covered front entrance. Neutral gray and taupe plank floor has been recently installed the entire length of the great room. A new bronze chandelier awaits to illuminate your meals. Both bedrooms have been refreshed with new carpet, and the 2 bathrooms are lit with new matching vanity lights. This unit has an oversized, air-conditioned enclosed patio - use it as a multifunctional flex space - artist loft, exercise studio, office, or to hang your hammock. A 2-car garage and an in-unit laundry are huge pluses. The Villas at Papillion are rumored to have one of the best pools in The Meadows - built on a small island in a lake. You can float around and admire the tropical foliage while meeting new folks. The Meadows is centrally located between downtown Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch. This unit is 3 miles to Whole Foods, University Pkwy restaurants, shops, and the UTC mall. Membership to The Meadows is optional and not mandatory.
