Nature, privacy and the sea. This 1.4-acre estate next to Lemon Bay Preserve in Sarasota County has 150 feet of waterfront on the bay -- bald eagles soar overhead and dolphins swim by the dock of this very special oasis. Gracious charm and haute design create a contemporary classical residence imbued with a sense of symmetry, scale and flow. Gentle arches, soaring ceilings, intricate woodwork and Schonbek crystal lighting attest to the home’s impressive nuances. Upon entering the grand foyer with 20-foot ceiling, you’re immediately drawn to the sun sparkling on the wide-open bayfront. The expansive floor plan features a glass-filled rear elevation where every major living area captures Sarasota’s abundant sunlight and coastal seascape. A wide variety of gathering areas include formal living room, “royal” dining room, family dining, family lounge and “Cheers”-inspired recreation room. There is also a home office with adjoining personal gym. The exquisite kitchen delights the inner gourmet with top-of-the-line appliances, new-release high-end Sub-Zero stainless steel dual-zone 146-wine-bottle refrigerator, large multi-purpose island and impressive bay view. The second floor is set aside as the family’s private retreat with sumptuous master suite, plus three additional bedrooms and two baths. Also upstairs is the “Cheers” game room featuring a solid-wood curved bar with brass foot rail and billiards area with table, light and cue rack. Outdoors, enjoy a world of sun and fun with two covered lanais, large outdoor pool, pier and dock with boat lift. The Gulf of Mexico’s turquoise waters are just a 10-15 minute boat ride via Stump Pass. Adjoining Lemon Bay Preserve contains some of the last remaining undeveloped bay shoreline in Sarasota County and features trails and boardwalks through the natural habitat. Private, natural, refined. Welcome to the magic of life at the heart of this enchanted setting. Photos, video & 3D tour available.
