Built 2003
Located on Bird Key. The most sought-after location on the Sarasota Islands, mid-way between downtown Sarasota, St. Armand’s Circle, and Lido beach, this custom (A. Phipps Design, Inc.) designed and (BW Saba Custom Builders) built in 2003, is set on 100’ of premier Sarasota Bay frontage. Sensational deep boating waters overlooking a sprawling horizon that captures city views from this mesmerizing residence, create the perfect place to call home. Complementing the waterfront scenery from every room are brilliant influences of Italian Renaissance architecture and artistry. Enter the living room through the gorgeous hand-carved double wood doors, to a breathtaking picture view through massive five-over-five Aquarium Glass windows where the infinity waterfall-edge pool looks as though it cascades into the bay as one seamless mirage. Marble floors, Corinthian pillars, intricate embellishments of hand-painted fresco art ceilings and wall niches featuring stenciling and gold leafing, and show-piece gas fireplaces with hand-carved mantles bring touches of worldly affluence to bright and spacious interiors. Versatility abounds with plenty of opportunities to personalize the home to meet your lifestyle needs without hindering the capacious views through picture windows. The library, featuring an Italian hand-cut leaded glass door, built-in desk, wealth of bookshelves and a fireplace is a superb executive-level remote office located off the foyer. The floorplan wraps around the pool terrace with French doors leading outside. The layout is ideal for entertaining with a gourmet eat-in kitchen at the heart of the home. The Wolf gas stove & microwave, Sub-Zero wine fridge, built-in Miele coffee bar, center island, expansive breakfast bar, a surplus of cabinetry and butler’s pantry are sure to delight the inspired chef. One master suite includes a spacious master bath with soaking tub and walk-in shower, and separate walk-in His & Hers closets, and a private covered terrace that wraps from pool to bayside–secluded from the living, dining, great room, and kitchen spaces. Open the triple set of doors in the dining room to the bayfront pool terrace while you treat guests to beverages from the built-in wet bar and entertainment center flanking the fireplace. Take the elevator or marble-clad stairs to the second floor to the theater that currently offers surround sound, a wet bar, half-bath and balcony. This can easily be converted into another master suite or completely remodeled into an in-law suite by taking advantage of the adjacent hall closet space by turning the half-bath into an en-suite spa and wet-bar into a kitchenette. Another master suite with walk-in organized closet, en-suite bath and balcony is on the opposite side of the residence, as well as a guest suite with en-suite bath and Juliette balcony. Downstairs, the Owner’s Master suite affords complete privacy from the rest of the home with double doors leading to the en-suite spa bath including gorgeous custom detailing and mosaic artwork, dual walk-in custom closets with pocketing doors and a terrace leading to the pool and bay. Outside, the Mosaic tile of the pool and spa shimmers as boaters and dolphins make their daily visit in front of your 36’ dock, the prime location for harboring your prized vessel with no bridges to the Gulf of Mexico through Big Pass. This homesite is a dream on the bay in a prestigious community–whether loving it as is, remodeling or building new.
