Billionaire alert! When you have over ten million to spend on a Sarasota house you expect it to have everything, and here’s one that really does.
Let’s start with the location—an acre and a half private peninsula on Siesta Key that juts out into Sarasota Bay. You’re surrounded by water on 3 sides. There’s a dock big enough for a 70 foot yacht, a putting green, 6 bedrooms, and an almost overpowering atmosphere of classic Mediterranean luxury.
Best of all, it’s no McMansion. It was built in 1962 but has been enlarged and glamorized over the years, with no detail overlooked. It’s practically all on one level, giving it an old-fashioned estate feeling of rambling along, with various wings and porches and terraces and sunrooms.
There’s a lot of imported Italian stonework throughout the house, with mahogany and alder wood detailing, pecky cypress beamed ceilings, hand painted murals, and the roof tiles come from an old Spanish monastery.
The exterior matches the interior. There’s a cobble stone motor court and pretty coquina paths and walkways that traverse the property. The pool is particularly nice; no pool cage here, just a big rectangle surrounded by immaculately trimmed lawn overlooking the water. The property is gated, of course—and the gates are solid teak.
This property is currently the second most expensive listing in Sarasota. It’s located in Hidden Harbor, an exclusive section of Siesta Key that very convenient to the north bridge.
1300 Hidden Harbor Way is priced at $11,900,000. For more information call Tamara Currey of Premier Sotheby’s at (941) 587-1776.
