The owner of one of Sarasota’s most beautiful homes will entertain a lease purchase, owner financing, or a trade for smaller residential or a variety of commercial properties. Steeped in luxurious privacy with 152’ of Bay frontage on a walled & gated acre of tropical perfection, this grand Hamptons style home is a vision right out Architectural Digest. Extraordinarily expensive finishes throughout. Millwork rarely seen in our market blend with designer lighting from Italy and Newport R.I., tumbled travertine patios, ebony-stained maple floors, 4-stop elevator, and smart-home technology. This home has over 10,000 sq. ft., including a dramatic 2-story living room, a formal dining room w/butler’s pantry, a game room, and a spired family room overlooking Sarasota Bay. A generous guest suite occupies the first level. The chef’s kitchen is extreme in every sense of the word and boasts professional appliances, walk-in pantry, four dishwashers, and dining alcove. Upstairs are three en suite bedrooms. The master suite boasts a domed seating area, private terrace, and marble-finished his & her bathrooms joined by a steam shower. Separate, though attached, is “The Cottage” guest quarters that features an informal living area, sleeping quarters, his & her offices, and a craft room. The sprawling estate offers many outdoor areas for enjoying the Siesta Key lifestyle including infinity-edge pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, roof-top deck, and a dock with boat lift. Only moments away from what has been named the No. 1 beach in the nation.
