Property Description

Described by Style Magazine as a “sprawling modern structure with a Bahamian flair,” this nearly one acre of land with four-bedroom home, guest apartment and cabana is a one-of-kind iconic property which is an exquisite homage to luxury bayfront living. The 150’ of direct bay frontage on the highly sought-after north end of Siesta Key is rumored to be the former site of the famed Bay Island Hotel, known for its glittering views of downtown Sarasota, the Ringling Bridge, and deep water boating – now yours to create your own masterpiece or restore the current characterful structures to their original glory. Multiple areas throughout the grounds and interior provide endless opportunities for entertaining and resort-style living, including a dramatic open-air pool terrace, meditative gardens, and an effortless open floorplan that boasts Southwestern, Bahamian and Mediterranean influences. Bright whites, soaring 22’ beamed ceilings, walls of windows, and light Oak flooring all give the home a relaxing coastal ambiance and embrace the stunning postcard setting few get to experience. A main house features four spacious guest suites with unique historic details like claw-foot tubs, hand-painted frescos and palladium windows and the master suite is spa-like and splashed in natural light with a whirlpool tub, oversized walk-in closet and chic work station with beautiful bay views. Other outstanding spaces include a solarium that looks directly out to the pool, cabana and water; a red-brick kitchen with high-end stainless steel appliances from GE and SubZero; and a cozy media room with surround sound, leather seating and home theatre. A guest apartment and cabana make the home truly customizable to suit your lifestyle and family needs. Designed for those who wish to be indulged in comfort, luxury and style, this wonderful estate property is the perfect backdrop to a vibrant Sarasota lifestyle.
