Perfectly positioned on a deep-waters edge of Longboat Key overlooking Sarasota Bay is this gorgeous, designer inspired estate. The location provides panoramic views of the glittering downtown Sarasota skyline. In 2005, after an arduous 2-year renovation, the residence was completely restyled inside and out. Those improvements include a new roof, exterior stucco and cast stone balusters, flooring, hand-built cabinetry, extensive millwork, lighting, windows and doors, plumbing, electric, landscaping and so much more. It's the ideal balance of refined style and Florida comfort. There are hand-select materials such as imported limestone, marble, walnut and mahogany. You'll appreciate the imported chandeliers, European fabrics, and an abundance or oversized windows. You'll also discover an 1600 bottle Wine Armoire made from a single old-growth tree harvested in Maine. Outside you'll discover re-claimed Chicago street pavers, multiple terraces clad in limestone, a heated pool lined with 150k of 1 blue glass tiles, wrought-iron fencing, 257 feet of concrete seawall, a boat lift and mature Royal Palms. The property also affords a 4 car garage with wood carriage doors, a 15 KW back-up generator and storm shutters in case the weather gets fickle.
