Panoramic water views greet you from almost every room of this beautiful, timelessly designed home. Centrally located in a small enclave of twelve bayfront homes, it is a rare find and truly convenient to everything in Sarasota. The two story entryway and formal rooms give an elegant, open feeling that is bathed in beautiful, natural light. Exquisite, Brazilian hardwood and teak flooring are evident through most of the home. Three fireplaces lend warmth and elegance, as does the luxurious wood paneling in the spacious den/office. The beautiful kitchen features recent appliances, recent granite and hardwood countertops and a full Butler's pantry w/wine storage. It is, unquestionably, an elegant home, but the true uniqueness arises from how well it takes advantage of the wonderful setting. Full water views are evident everywhere. All four bedrooms are en suite and showcase beautiful views, often from multiple sides. Also taking full advantage of the waterfront are many amenities of great entertaining, including an expansive lanai & screened pool/spa, a large outdoor cabana that has a full bar and outdoor kitchen, a full, dedicated pool bath and a separate balcony/sundeck with open views of the Intracoastal Waterway. Don't forget the boat. Water access is a cinch with the large boat dock and 10,000 lb. lift right outside the back door. Safety and security are also in hand w/motorized hurricane shutters or film on all windows If you are looking for great waterfront, this property needs to be on your list.
