A majestic bayfront landmark accentuating Sarasota’s shoreline, this tropical oasis rests among legendary properties including the neighboring Ringling estates. Lush native landscaping and understated elegance work together to cleverly humanize the scale and comfort of this resort style compound. A vine covered entrance gate provides guest access to the main house while a second gate provides resident access to the garage and service areas. Undergoing a meticulous three-year renovation under the guidance of award winning architect, Peter Bohlin this estate could easily grace the cover of any architectural magazine. Bohlin is quoted, We believe in an architecture that springs from the nature of circumstance… the nature is its place, whether natural or man-made… His beliefs are brilliantly expressed in this project resulting in the creation of a true design masterpiece; modern clean lines embrace the original Moroccan influences, working in unison with warm materials and finishes, exceptional lighting design and a vast amount of glass capturing the mesmerizing bayfront vistas. The main living floor is ideal for entertaining and flows outside to the cascading terrace, massive pool area, manicured lawn, pristine Sarasota bay and flanking pool house. The expansive sleeping quarters reside on the second floor along with dual office spaces and private balconies. This exceptional estate comes complete with a self-watering Har-Tru tennis court and four-car garage with two-bedroom guest apartment above.
