Lush tropical landscaping combines with colorful foliage to create a setting that is ultra-private, quiet and relaxed for the 39 homes comprising Siesta Key’s exclusive community of Hidden Harbor. Here awaits your own Shangri La, a 7,500-square-foot coastal masterpiece that epitomizes the Florida lifestyle.
Strategically positioned on a peninsula overlooking Robert’s Bay, the estate was built to take advantage of water views from every room with an open floorplan punctuated by walls of glass. The cathedral-ceilinged living room flows seamlessly to the formal dining and inviting family room, which open to the main balcony where spectacular vistas create a stunning backdrop for any occasion. The chef’s kitchen is equipped with an abundance of top-of-the-line appliances and easily serves large-scale gatherings. Accommodations include four en suite bedrooms and a master suite comprised of a sumptuous bath and adjoining 2-story office and loft.
Family fun and outdoor living keynote this property, which offers something for everyone. Saltwater anglers can access the Gulf of Mexico in 10 minutes by boat, which is easily facilitated by two deep water docks equipped with lifts. A private kayak launch area takes you from backyard to bay. Shoppers will delight in the quaint boutiques, restaurants and night life of Siesta Key Village, just a mile away from where sun worshippers can play on world famous Gulf beaches.
At home, the infinity-edge swimming pool with waterfalls and slide provide plenty of backyard fun. Enjoy a glass of wine under the stars while gazing at the twinkling lights of the downtown Sarasota skyline from one of the many balcony or patio areas. A 600-square-foot fitness center, 6-seat home theater/safe room, 2-story office, workshop, ample storage for water toys and an elevator complete this offering.
Consistently recognized as the number one beach in the entire U.S., Siesta Key boasts sugary white sand beaches and shimmering Gulf waters. The island reflects an enviable pace of casual living, yet is just minutes to the cultural mecca of Sarasota where art galleries, museums and open-air concerts abound. Sarasota is also home to one of the best hospitals in the state according to a national survey, as well as top-rated schools and numerous institutions of higher education.
This coastal gem is offered at $6,200,000.
