Sarasota Real Estate: Siesta Supersize

By Robert Plunket June 3, 2012

This enormous penthouse is the largest apartment on Siesta Key—a whopping 4,590 square feet—but what we love is the atmosphere of “Pillow Talk” glamour that pervades the place. This would be a fun property to renovate and update. Any decorator in town would kill to get his or her hands on this place. Just look at the room sizes: the master bedroom is 35 by 25, the living room is 30 by 20, and there is the possibility of a roof top terrace with firepit, capitalizing on the spectacular views.

Located in a 1960s building called Island House, the two-story unit has five bedrooms and four baths, plus three large balconies, several fireplaces, a family room, a sunken bath tub and a floor plan that’s perfect for entertaining. You could turn it into just about anything you wanted, but here’s hoping the new owners would want to capitalize on the late mid-century glam that includes marble, acres of off-white wall to wall carpeting, a formal dining room, a dramatic staircase to the upper floor, lots of molding--both crown and picture-frame—and tray ceilings in many of the rooms.

It’s in one of those buildings that allows weekly rentals, which means you have the possibility of renting it out when you’re not using it. The realtor says the income potential is as high as $100,000 a year. This unique penthouse on the country’s best beach is priced at $2,499,999. The address is 6142 Midnight Pass Rd.
