The Banyan Beach House: A Midcentury Modern Gem on Siesta Key
The .65-acre grounds are a lush oasis of tropical plantings, breathtaking banyans, towering palms, and stately oaks, providing an idyllic and serene setting that can be enjoyed from every room.
This magnificent midcentury modern home has been beautifully renovated to preserve its timeless design while incorporating modern amenities and conveniences. The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath estate is the epitome of relaxed elegance, with a floor plan that is perfect for both intimate living and grand-scale entertaining.
It’s understandable why the current owners, Brad and Kelly Anderson, who were moving to Sarasota after withstanding Chicago’s frigid winters, fell in love when they walked in the door. Attracted to its light-filled spaces, privacy, and tropical views, they shared, “We were looking all over at new construction, but we just loved the way this house felt.”
Upon entering the home, you are greeted by a large, light-filled entry foyer that leads to the casual and open-concept great room, complete with a custom-designed glass wine cellar. The adjacent dining area flows seamlessly into the sleek and sophisticated kitchen, which features Bosch appliances, custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, and a polished geode backsplash. The kitchen opens to a spacious family room and pool bath, providing the perfect space for indoor-outdoor living.
Judie Berger, a REALTOR with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, remarks, “This home was designed for relaxing; from the front courtyard with water trickling over stones in the Zen-like pond, through the fabulous light-filled mid-century architecture that brings the outdoors in, to the private lanai, terraces, pool and waterfalls. Privacy and relaxation are paramount.”
The highlight of this stunning home is the expansive screened coral stone-paver lanai, which overlooks a breathtaking backyard with a dock on Heron Lagoon and a magnificent pool and waterfalls, complete with an outdoor kitchen and abundant seating areas. A romantic spa with a waterfall is only steps away from the oversized master suite, which features a spa-like bath, huge travertine shower, jetted tub, and spacious walk-in closet.
Each of the three guest bedrooms has its own wing and beautifully detailed bath, ensuring that guests have their privacy and comfort. The home also features volume ceilings, custom lighting, and hurricane protection for windows, doors, and skylights.
As a resident of the Sanderling Club, you'll enjoy activities and social events in a clubhouse designed by the renowned architect Paul Rudolph, complete with a large waterfront patio and grilling area, private tennis, pickleball and volleyball courts, and a playground.
