This Gulf Front estate is a beach lover’s dream! An incredibly-appointed, expansive home sitting right on 110’ of powdery white sand beaches of the exclusive, highly-sought-after Anna Maria Island. The sweet, salty Gulf breeze and the gentle sound of the waves careening against the shore greets you as you drive up to this paradise that you could call “home”, right in the heart of the Island. As you move past the oversized courtyard and 7-car garages, with more than enough space for the motor enthusiast, you’ll enter the main level of the home with immediate, breathtaking, unobstructed views of the beach. The entry foyer boasts natural stone floors, pool cabana and game room with direct access to the partially-covered swimming pool with spa. Luxurious, thoughtfully planned touches cover every inch of this nearly 7,500-under-air-square-foot 5-bedroom, 5.5-bath, direct Gulf-front beach home. An elevator with commercial auto-opener brings you up to the main living level where oak floors guide the way from room to breathtaking room. The stunning formal living area with vaulted ceilings and oak beams can only be surpassed by the direct Gulf views from the vanishing sliding doors that act as the home’s “windows” to a beach paradise. Enjoy your amazing view from the oversized patio with electric roll down screen or soak it in from the interior of the home with the ease of remote-controlled electric blinds. On one side of the formal living room, you’ll find the family room with fireplace and just as impressive Gulf views. On the other, you’ll find the gourmet double-island kitchen with Jenair Rise commercial appliances, two dishwashers, elegant wet bar with icemaker and a massive pantry with wall oven and microwave. A separate, expansive Butler’s Pantry completes the kitchen and includes beautiful built-ins, farmhouse sink and laundry room. As you continue through the main living level of the home, immediately, you will fall in love with the stunning views from the resort-style master suite complete with walk-in his and hers island closets, washer and dryer and a spa-style master bathroom with heated floors. Also, off the main living area, you’ll find a beautiful guest suite and an additional office suite with custom built-ins. An attached one bedroom guest house with beautiful island kitchen, spacious living area, washer/dryer and separate garage entrance is the perfect space for visitors to relax, unwind and embrace the Island lifestyle. The only downside is that your guests may find it hard to leave! As if these fine touches weren’t enough, this home has all of your practical needs met as well, from Sierra Pacific windows and Euro Vista multi-slide sliders to a Nest security system including closed circuit cameras, electric remote-controlled security entry gate, tankless gas water heaters with recirculation pump for immediate hot water and generator. Close your eyes, listen to the sound of the waves, smell the sweet, salty air and feel the powdery white sand between your toes…the Island is calling. And, we have the perfect spot for you to call your own paradise!
