Majestically poised along the shimmering gulf of Mexico waters bordering Siesta Key, this masterfully designed retreat invokes distinctive Asian-inspired aesthetics to achieve a unique harmony with nature. A feeling of tranquility prevails as this privatesanctuary rests on two sprawling acres stretching from the white sands of the beach to a calm lagoon, and encompassing a main residence and a two-story guesthouse buffered by a lush Japanese garden. Following an irreproducible, detailed plan of reconstruction, the owners enhanced the home's original footprint to create a true haven of serenity resplendent with the beauty of water, nature and relaxation. Chosen for its distinct color and texture, rich cypress wood adorns the guesthouse and forms a welcoming covered walkway leading to the main residence. Embellished with walls of glass and a dramatic open plan to accentuate its extraordinary beachfront placement, a calming impression permeates the main estate, adorned with a modern French motif and striking Polynesian touches. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open to panoramic views of Gulf waters in the expansive master suite, which manifests the sensation of ultimate seclusion on one of the nation's most revered beaches. Pocket sliding glass doors help create an indoor/outdoor feel for the expansive kitchen. Perfect for enjoying undisturbed reflection or entertaining guests, the open courtyard pool and summer kitchen area is enveloped by South African ipe wood decking.
