There’s a new “most expensive home” in Sarasota, and with a $14 million price tag it’s got just about everything a multimillionaire could hope for. It was sold last year for $7.5 million and now it’s back, renovated and more elaborate than ever.
Located behind the gates of the exclusive Sanderling Club on Siesta Key, it is set on a four-acre parcel of beachfront land. In appearance it’s very traditional, with arched windows, chimneys and a sloped roof. Inside the main house (8,600 square feet), you’ll find three levels of luxury, with the lower level set up rather like a spa: pool, outdoor kitchen, sauna and steam room. There’s also a 2,000-square-foot guest house that faces Heron Lagoon.
Other features include a tennis court, tiki hut, and fire pit. No expense has been spared on the kitchen, the new bathrooms, the millwork and the landscaping. There’s also a dedicated home office (a sign of the times), but the gimmick here is that you enter it through a secret door.
All this luxury is pretty much taken for granted in Sanderling, where price records are set and then surpassed with dependable regularity. Many think it’s the most prestigious location in Sarasota, with an unbeatable combination of privacy, security, natural beauty, and glamorous Instagram backgrounds, as this beachfront estate so perfectly illustrates.
8218 Sanderling Road is priced at $14 million. For more info call Joel Schemmel of Premier Sotheby’s at (941) 587-4894.
