This lavish beach house on Siesta Key has the most amazing views ever. First you see tropical greenery, then a white sand beach, then, to top it off, the blue green waters of the gulf. It would be hard to find anything comparable anywhere, and the views alone justify the home’s whopping asking price: $8.6 million.
The rooms that you’re looking at the views from aren’t too bad either. The living room is immense, with extra high ceilings, glass walls that open on to large terraces, even a fireplace. The floors are Jerusalem marble, which is actually a type of limestone found in the Middle East. The famous Wailing Wall is made from it.
The home has 4 bedrooms and 4 and a half baths (many of the baths also have views) and a sleek Neff kitchen that’s part of the open living area. The master suite occupies the entire top floor of the home and has it own fireplace, sitting area, and terrace.
The best thing about this house is its utter simplicity. Homes at this price level, particularly in Sarasota, can get pretty overwrought. This one lets the spectacular setting say everything. The result is a perfect second—or third—home for a wealthy family—or celebrity--that wants total privacy and relaxation. The current owners recently hosted a beach-side wedding here for 100 with dinner and dancing, and they often use it for family reunions.
The home is located in the Sanderling Club, the premier gated community on Siesta Key and one of Sarasota’s very best neighborhoods. By the way, the Sanderling beach has recently been renourished and is better than ever.
7940 Sanderling Road is priced at $8.6 million. For more info call Linda Dickinson (941-350-3304) or Kelly Quigley (941-356-9954) of Michael Saunders and Co.
