Property Description

Palm Beach International Design meets Mid Century Mediterranean elegance and charm in one of Sarasota's most desirable and acclaimed communities of St. Armands Key. A boater's dream, situated on a private 28000 square foot lot with 172' of expansive Sarasota Bay views with private deep-water yacht dockage and easy accessibility to the Gulf of Mexico, all while being in the heart of world class dining and shopping on St. Armand's Circle. This private gated estate, originating in the 1950's, was redesigned in 2009, taking the home from 7000 square feet to nearly 10,000 and represents the exquisite uniqueness of this Mediterranean revival. The entry iron gates welcome you home with marble pathways, sculpted fountains and well thought out lush tropical landscaping for ultimate privacy. The stage is set from the moment you enter through the front doors of this estate, recognizing this home is truly one of a kind with a lavish light filled raised Rotunda entrance with ebony and mahogany flooring, a 22-foot mahogany-clad domed ceiling and French doors overlooking the elegant and romantic central courtyard. Interior features comprise of marble, mahogany and inlaid black granite flooring. A total of 7 bedrooms and 9 full baths with 2 master suites, one upstairs and one down as well as 4 suites where guests can enjoy a spa like experience. A separate upstairs guest suite with kitchenette, bedroom, bath and living room with its own entry is the perfect private get away for additional visitors. The custom crafted home theatre for 10 is perfect for intimate family gatherings. Imported and handcrafted leaded beveled glass doors adorn the wine room as well as the custom-built Hickory wood library/office with intimate fireplace. An additional office with built in shelving and serene Bay views is a perfect complement for the working couple. Most of the ceilings throughout the home are custom coffered with hand carved intricate molding. The heart of this home, the kitchen, with SieMatic cabinets, granite countertops, gas stove and Subzero refrigerator is adjoined by a spacious breakfast area that opens out onto the central courtyard, outdoor fireplace and built-in kitchen bringing breathtaking outdoors in. The family room is flooded with rich natural light from its 2-story floor to ceiling windows with exquisite water views. French doors lead out onto the open and expansive pool/spa with additional dinning and lounge space, making the multiple outdoor living spaces as inviting as the inside. The home is also equipped with an elevator discreetly hidden by the kitchen, leading just outside the upstairs master bedroom. The vision of the current owners was to create an architecturally unique estate combined with a livable private family retreat that was within minutes to the cultural hub, world famous beaches and exquisite dining experiences. It's now time for another family to make this distinct residence their own special home.
