THE TOPPING COTTAGE: The Topping Cottage is a very luxurious and large five  bedroom, three and one-half [3.5] bath home with approximately 3,000SF of air conditioned space in Siesta Key. As you enter the foyer, you immediately notice the huge, spacious, bright living room with voluminous, high ceilings dwarfed only by an enormous flat panel television. Across the open entry and dining area, you look out beyond the elevated exterior deck into the private courtyard which features a pool/waterfall surrounded by lush, lavish tropical landscaping. Just off to your right, the home offers a beautiful, spacious gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and everything necessary to prepare your favorite gourmet meals. Upstairs, each of the home's dual master bedrooms feature a beautiful full tile shower with solid glass enclosures, granite counter tops, tile floors...the absolute finest. The primary master bath also features an oversize steeping bath for your added enjoyment.
The three other bedrooms feature a queen bed, two twin beds and two full beds, all with plenty of closet space and furnishings. Everything organized to maximize your comfort and enjoyment. In total the Topping Cottage sleeps 12 in beds.
EXTERIOR AMENITIES: However, for those interested in enjoying a little time off the beach, the 'Topping Cottage' features a lovely poolscape bounded by a large brick paver terrace offering comfortable seating/lounging under lighted umbrellas as well as the constant sound of a gentle waterfall. The spacious and private, fenced pool courtyard is lush with hibiscus flowers, tropical plants and abundant landscaping. Coffee in the morning while watching the hummingbirds will quickly lull you into a tropical daze, unmoved except for the huge smile forming on your face. And if you find the energy, four bikes await your urge to explore the island as well the Siesta Key Village found only a mile north. There's so much to do and plenty of memories to make with your family.
Regardless of your passion: lounging, swimming, biking, grilling, cooking, going to the beach, shopping, walking, visiting art galleries & museums, seeing live theater, etc., the Topping Cottage, Siesta Key and Sarasota collectively make up the finest vacation choice for you and your family and friends.
BEACH, VILLAGE & LANDSCAPING: Siesta Beach, one of the world’s finest [rated No. 1 by TripAdvisor in 2015] is two blocks [approx 1/4 mile] directly west on Avenida Del Mare. You’ll love its crystal white quartz sand which remains cool in the summer and fine to the touch. It’s rare to find a large canal home so close to the beach. Excellent facilities are available at the main beach access which is but a mile away and includes lifeguards, volleyball, morning exercise sessions, bathrooms, tennis, concession stand, bathrooms and plenty of parking [800 spaces and more coming]. It is within easy walking distance and a beach caddy with plenty of beach chairs and beach equipment is provided. Siesta Key Village is approximately 1 mile north of Avenida Del Mare. A leisure walk will get you there in 15 minutes. Plenty of restaurants, shops and night spots. Florida is known for its beaches, climate and foliage so this home features on its grounds an amazing amount of lavish tropical foliage to include many flower species as well as many fruit tree varieties. If you like plants and nature, you’ll love the grounds [almost like a botanical garden].
