One or more photo(s) has been virtually staged. Spectacular one-of-a-kind location and privacy close to downtown Sarasota and minutes from the gorgeous award-winning Siesta Key beach. A truly custom-designed waterfront home built in 2016. 6,793 square feet on one level with no interior stairs. Situated on a gorgeous gated premier lot of nearly one acre, this prestigious, highly regarded, long-established South Lake Shore Drive residence in Oyster Bay Estates is a rare offering. The Field Club, one of the area's most exclusive and exquisite private clubs is minutes away offering dining, tennis, swimming and harborage for large yachts. This incredible home sits on grade, and at 13.1 feet, it is 2 feet above the required base flood elevation. The massive backyard slopes gradually to the water's edge with a dock with two boat lifts. As you enter through the gates, you drive up a long double circular driveway, perfect for many guests when entertaining, to a large porte-cochere. Two massive pecky cypress entry doors open to graceful arches, soaring ceilings and views of the lanai and dramatic pool beyond. Open kitchen/family room floor plan with 10-foot sliders that pocket, opening the entire area to the loggia. Many custom interior finishes, top-name appliances, hand-selected countertops. Large pool and hot tub. Built to the highest and most recent codes and standards. All windows and doors are hurricane impact rated, Icynene insulation (average FPL bill under $200/month), automated audio/visual/security systems and a standby generator. Only 15 minutes to all Sarasota has to offer, the Van Wezel Performing Arts, Sarasota Opera House, Sarasota Ballet, plus fine dining and shopping at the famous St. Armands Circle. Proximity to the top-rated Sarasota Memorial Hospital and the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport.
