You will want to see this gorgeous bayfront estate, just a sunny walk from St. Armands Circle. Situated on two corner lots, spanning more than a half-acre, this five-bedroom residence is set among lush, professionally managed greenery beside the coastal landscape of Sarasota Bay. This striking home welcomes you with a gated entry, pavered circular drive and tranquil fountains. The custom design by luxury home builder John Cannon encompasses nearly 8, 000 square feet of living space, where you can enjoy peaceful water views from just about every room. Spread across two levels, the inspired interior features cathedral ceilings (the highest ceiling soars at 26’) with intricate coffered details and expanded crown molding, as well as Travertine flooring with tile inlay, faux finished plaster walls, storm impact glass throughout (additional storm protection on Aquarium glass), custom built-ins, gas fireplace encased in stone with a solid wood mantle, 200-bottle wine room, and whole-house generator. The double-door entry opens to the living/dining room featuring picture-perfect views of calming, waters beyond. The generous layout is organized around the gourmet kitchen at the heart of the home that leads off to various wings. This chef’s space overlooks the massive family room, offering extended breakfast bar, oversized island, professional-grade appliances, Marble countertops, and Butler’s pantry. The master is a serene getaway conveniently located on the first floor for added privacy, with its own terrace access, spa-inspired en-suite bathroom, separate sitting area under bay windows, his/her walk-in closets and bonus room currently being used as an exercise room. The theater room and office (this is the 2nd bedroom) complete the first floor. The second level is devoted to guests, including an expansive loft being used as a game room, two bedroom suites and an in-law suite with its own living room, kitchenette, and private entrance from one of the five garage spaces. Seamlessly transition to outdoor living on the elaborate patio area connected to the interior with swaths of glass pocketing sliders. Stainless steel Viking grilling station with granite countertops, bar fridge, warming drawers, charming dining area, and fireplace are all a part of the covered lanai’s well-equipped summer kitchen. Spacious heated spa under an alluring gazebo and open lounge area surrounding a lovely firepit complete the upper level of this outdoor entertaining area. The sundeck on the lower level of the patio, clad in brick pavers, with a uniquely designed heated, infinity edge swimming pool (65’ in length), provides the ideal space to relish peaceful bay breezes, sunbathe, or entertain. The U-shaped composite dock with multiple lifts (including Jet Ski and 14, 000 lb boat lifts), room to lounge bayside, and nearly 150’ of newer seawall (2002) are the perfect finishing touches. This exclusive property is located close to the best that Sarasota offers, where you can walk to trendy eateries, boutique shopping and the famed St. Armands Circle. Pristine Gulf beaches of Lido and Longboat Key are only a short bike ride away.
