Welcome to 6222 Olive Avenue, a charming oasis nestled in the heart of the highly sought-after Gulf Gate area neighborhood. An enchanting blend of classic mid-century simplicity, sun-drenched openness, and modern improvements and conveniences. Every detail of the landscape and hardscape has been carefully designed to create a wonderful sense of tranquility and serenity. You will feel it for yourself the minute you pass the front yard’s bamboo fence and walk under the pergola to the front door. This home was built by the developer of the Palm Lakes community to be his own personal home! So it has many special features - - - the walls are poured concrete, not block. The ceilings are 9 feet high. Instead of the typical popcorn ceiling, the builder had a lovely troweled surface applied to the ceilings that you will just love. There is a walk-in closet in the master bedroom - - - unheard of in the 50s! Under the carpet and tile, all of the floors, except the Florida Room, are a beautiful terrazzo that has been carefully preserved and has never been damaged by carpet tacks. The ½ bath in the master bedroom could very easily be expanded into a full bath but the current owner actually prefers using the outdoor shower! This home has been lovingly maintained and improved. The roof is 2 years old. The AC was replaced in 2023. The water heater is just 3 years old. The windows are thermal, impact resistant, have hurricane shutters and a lifetime transferable warranty. The Florida Room’s 21 feet of sliding glass doors create a wonderful sense of openness and a lovely view of the very private back yard and Tiki bar. In addition to the garage and the carport, there is also room to park a boat, an RV or a couple more cars. This is just a short description of this home’s many highlights. Please check out the complete list of features (attached). Nothing matters more in real estate than location. The Gulf Gate area is extremely well-known and popular because its location is ideal. It is a nicely maintained, diverse, suburban community just minutes from the south bridge to Siesta Key Beach and just a 10 minute drive to downtown Sarasota.
