The nearly 19,000-square-foot home includes resort-style, open-air living area and a private dock.
Looking for a luxury retreat? Something, say, with a resort-style, open-air living area with an infinity-edge pool, swim-up bar, spa, gazebo, multiple fire features, separate fireplace, koi pond, outdoor kitchen and several covered and uncovered seating areas? Maybe with walls of glass yielding unobstructed water views?
For $15 million your popularity will skyrocket. As will your guest list.
The lavish property hit the market this week. It has a tough-to-beat location on Siesta Key. Located on the north end of the island, it sits on a private, gated peninsula at 3799 Flamingo Road.
“Resort-style living now has a new meaning,” says Joel Schemmel of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, the listing agent. “This is one of the most beautiful homes in Sarasota.”
Completed last year, the home has rich wood, exquisite marble and other exotic stone throughout. The coffered ceiling designs, intricate moldings and textured wall coverings add depth to a neutral color palette, according to the marketing materials.
With 18,706 total square feet and 8,138 square feet under air, the four-bedroom, four-bath and two-partial bath mansion sits on 1.4 acres on the Intracoastal Waterway. The property has more than 700 feet on the bay, a canal and a lagoon. A private dock gives boaters immediate access to deep water.
No need to commission an interior designer or select furnishings. The home being offered fully furnished.
MONIOMI, an interior design firm out of Miami, was hired with a brief to redefine coastal luxury by creating a casual and modern home that is both elegant and functional. The design mixing neutrals and textures features an illuminated crystal agate countertop bar with a fossilized Jurassic brown marble base.
“This impressive estate is brilliantly designed to deliver the perfect balance between modern architecture, design and home décor while taking full advantage of its southern facing, peninsular setting on Siesta Key,” Schemmel said in a news release announcing the listing.
There are two more expensive properties listed for sale on Siesta Key, but they are not fair comparisons. One is a three-acre estate with two Gulf-front houses in the exclusive Sanderling Club, listed at $15.5 million. The second, on two acres facing the Gulf, is for a home yet to be built. The 10,000-square-foot, five-bedroom, seven-bath residence has a list price of $16,570,000.
