This uniquely private 102-acre equestrian estate east of Venice, FL is a short hop to the beaches, downtown and airport yet set apart from the hustle and bustle of the Gulf Coast. Equestrian parcels neighbor this secluded property, with a nature preserve to the rear. Behind the gorgeous gated entry, the treed quarter-mile drive leads to the 24,000 sq. ft. palazzo bursting with Old World charm. Capped with a commanding Tuscan tower, the remarkable residence echoes the splendors of San Simeon yet it conveys special comfort and warmth. Craftsmanship is superb throughout with attention to every detail. Centering the home is a massive great room with soaring ceilings. The surrounding mezzanine leads to the five bedrooms, each with a distinct character. The celebrity chef's kitchen is outfitted beyond belief! A library, billiard room, theatre/cinebar, gym and much more round out this ”most beautiful home in Sarasota“. Also an 8-car A/C garage, covered patio & a dining gazebo between the stunning pool and the tennis court. A fully-equipped guest home features a large 1st floor party area with three bedrooms and two baths upstairs. All that the discriminating buyer might desire! The fenced and cross-fenced grounds has a series of paddocks plus a 5-furlong railed horse track. To the rear is an impeccably maintained 22-stall horse stable with tack room and dressing area. Full staff quarters are on the 2nd floor. There is a multi-bay equipment garage with foreman's office. Complete detail sheets attached.
