Welcome to the Sanderling Club, one of Siesta Key's most coveted waterfront neighborhoods; a historic, Gulf-to-Bay community of canopied, estate-sized homesites. Located on the shores of tranquil Heron Lagoon, this spacious and inviting three-bedroom, three-bath home and guesthouse is a private oasis. Completely secluded, enter this wonderful retreat through a charming ivy-covered wall and iron gate, into the courtyard with a fountain and lush tropical surroundings. The inviting main house (2,642 square feet) features an expansive great room with vaulted beamed ceilings and fireplace. Stone columns delineate the separate dining and sitting rooms. The large island kitchen has plenty of workspace and features stainless appliances and views of the lagoon. An oversized master suite overlooks the lagoon and offers a large bathroom and sitting room overlooking the courtyard pool and patio. Two additional bedrooms and baths in a split plan offer flexible space ‹“ one bedroom is currently used as a den. The separate guesthouse (392 square feet) has tongue-and-groove vaulted ceilings with a bedroom and separate bath and wraps around the completely private courtyard where you can relax with your favorite book or swim laps in the 35' long, Olympic-size pool. With unrivaled privacy, the Sanderling Club offers member activities and social events, tennis, an active clubhouse with a large waterfront patio and grilling area. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Gulf all day from the historic beach cabanas, designed by famed architect Paul Rudolph, and savor colorful blazing sunsets each night. A boater's delight, the community also offers a private bayfront marina with sailboat access to the Intracoastal Waterway and Gulf of Mexico.
