Tropical Retreat in Sarasota
About this Showroom
We're recent Florida transplants (from Boston) who take every opportunity to get outside with our dogs. We both work for social justice nonprofits. We love that our new lifestyle affords us the opportunity to do everything, from watching sports to attending virtual meetings to eating meals—all while enjoying the warm weather outside. Our new backyard is what sold us on our house. We've always dreamed of being able to have a tropical backyard to go out and have breakfast and read the Sunday paper in—and now we’re living the dream! Beautiful palms and Laurel oak trees border the yard, so it feels lush and secluded, but also gets great sun and warmth. In the evening, we listen to crickets and geckos, and when we wake up, we listen to all of the beautiful birds who have migrated down south. We have a beautiful patio that allows for a comfortable seating, dining, and screening area. Mark is a lifelong Georgia football fan and now we can watch the games outside. We’re proud of the space we’ve created; it allows us to connect with neighbors and friends and also fully relax!
