One-of-a-kind bayfront estate, remarkably positioned directly across from downtown Sarasota on Bird Key, the most desirable waterfront community on Florida’s gulf coast. Situated on two rarely available cul-de-sac lots with over 150’ of water frontage, this location offers stunning views of Sarasota Bay, the iconic Ringling Bridge, and the downtown city skyline.
This luxurious compound consists of a 7,754 SF bayfront main residence and an adjacent 2,735 SF carriage home, ideal for accommodating large parties, extended family, and overnight guests. Upon entry, the spectacular main house makes a commanding first impression with a two-story open foyer and formal living room. Optimal views of the bay and sparkling city skyline carry through to the kitchen and family room where two walls of glass completely disappear, merging the primary living area with the covered terrace.
A host of resort-like amenities await outdoors including a heated pool with oversized sun shelf, a recessed seating area with a gas fire feature, an 8-person spa, and an outdoor kitchen. A boater’s paradise, the waterfront offers an all-weather dock with three lifts and a fish cleaning station. Built by highly-acclaimed builders Kellogg & Kimsey and Dynan Construction in 2007 and 2016, these two residences demonstrate impeccable quality and attention to detail.
The main home boasts six en-suite bedrooms, including a luxurious main floor owner’s suite, a 2nd floor VIP guest suite, a gourmet kitchen with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, an elevator, laundry on both floors, Crestron home audio system, LiteTouch panelized LED lighting, and numerous covered terraces offering ideal vantage points. While the interior’s main spaces are designed for socialization, the master suite is a tranquil retreat featuring stunning views of the bay, dual walk-in closets, and en-suite bath offering separate vanities, two separate water closets, an AirMasseur tub, and a walk-in steam shower. An entertainer’s haven, the expansive game room features a full bar, room for poker table, billiards, and shuffleboard, private terrace, and a 12-seat movie theater. Additionally, the exercise room, private study, and 300-bottle wine room afford the option to never have to leave home, although you’ll find Downtown Sarasota, St. Armands Circle, and Lido Beach all just a short drive, stroll, or bike ride away.
The carriage house features an additional study with powder bath, and two en-suite bedrooms, a full kitchen, living room, dining room, billiard room and covered terrace on the second level. The auto enthusiast will enjoy room for three cars in the main garage, and additional space for up to six cars in the carriage home’s air-conditioned workshop/garage. Not only is this prime waterfront location ideal for watersports, this spectacular residence is also adjacent to John Ringling Causeway Park and features direct beach access.
