Imagine combining all of the most alluring attributes of Palm Beach, Miami and Sarasota Florida into one captivating residence! From its nostalgic Ringling Museum era location wrought with homes from the 1920s-Present, to the classically romantic Palm Beach-esque private and lush entry, coupled with clean interior lines of a Miami modern build, this stylish pool home is one of a kind.
Situated in the historic waterfront neighborhood of Sapphire Shores, it will be a prized homestead for anyone. Within an easy walk to the famed Ringling Museum, Asolo Theater, Museum of Art, Bayfront Gardens and Ca D’Zan, all one of a kind backdrops for a myriad of both indoor and outdoor activities. Quality bursts out of this custom-built home, created by local builder.
Constructed of solid concrete block, spray foam insulation and 2015 hurricane impact rated windows and doors, this 14 foot elevation home was erected with the future in mind. Not only does it offer great curb appeal, from its pavered drive, to Porte-Cochere, but has artfully been designed with a Feng Shui flow, and strategically placed picture windows throughout to capture as much of the full bay views and light from every room as possible. An abundance of outdoor living space, including outdoor cooking area, a private balcony from each bedroom, ample open terraces and a large 44 foot lap pool, sun shelf and deck, it is ideal for large yet intimate gatherings. Cozy up to the main living room fireplace or dine al fresco on the patio with the flicker of the outdoor flames as your backdrop. If the tropical abundant landscaping won’t pull you in, certainly the sky deck that overlooks the Sarasota Bay will; chalk full of incredible sunsets, long distance intercoastal bay views as far as the famed IMG Academy and great bird watching. Checkered marble flooring, reminiscent of John Ringling’s home, greet you in the foyer along with its soaring 14 foot ceiling. A stairwell that leads to a spacious bonus room, complete with full bathroom in a soothing color scheme, plus under stairwell storage, all a great use of space. Oak flooring and French doors throughout welcome you into each new setting, first in the lounge area and through the rest of the residence. Three ensuite end unit bedrooms located on the 2nd and 3rd levels, two half bathrooms, a pool bath and a third floor primary bedroom suite to envy. You certainly won’t miss the dream chef’s kitchen, curated with fine detail, from the Bosch, Bertazzoni and Frigidaire appliances, to the coffee bar and a generous marble island that seats 5. Journey upstairs where you’ll be wowed by what feels like something out of Architectural Digest when you meander into the 2nd level spa-like master bath; mosaic marble flooring, glass enclosed shower, dual sinks, marble tops and a soaking tub with sunset views in the evening. The 3rd floor primary suite includes a generously sized parlor of its own, wet bar, grand balcony and direct access to the rooftop deck plus rain shower, walk-in closet and dual sinks plus private stacked laundry.
A kayaker or canoer’s dream, launch at nearby Sun Circle Bayfront park! A quick drive to downtown Sarasota’s vibrant action, including the Bayfront Project, rooftop bars, Sarasota opera or ballet, Marina Jack’s and all of the incredible restaurants with all flavors from around the globe, you certainly won’t get bored in this part of town. And now you’ll have to experience this enchanting property in person to really appreciate it!
