Described as “the jewel of Sapphire Shores,” this fabulously stylish mid-century modern complex combines the retro authenticity of its 1957 construction with luxury updates. Set back on a deep fully-enclosed lot that extends all the way to 47th street, the property includes a main house, guest cottage and separate garage connected by a breezeway, all situated around a central pool, gravel courtyard and exotic plantings. A full renovation preserved the incredible original style of the home and added new amenities including premium appliances, luxury bathrooms, and energy-efficient installations. Gleaming white cathedral ceilings throughout the main house set the tone for coastal living, with seamless flow to an enormous screened porch that adds luxurious outdoor lounge and dining space. Inside, double French doors flank an ultra-chic modern gas fireplace with a statement Arts & Crafts style steel canopy. The bright, u-shaped kitchen enjoys open sightlines to the living space with a breakfast counter adjacent to the spacious dining area. Designed for world-class cooking, a La Cornue range steals the show in the kitchen alongside other high-end appliances, including an extra-wide stainless steel KitchenAid refrigerator. Each of the three bedrooms in the main house opens directly to the outdoors for a vacation-like feel. The massive master suite occupies one wing, echoing the scale of the living area with a vaulted ceiling and enormous windows that flood the space with natural light. Vaulted ceilings in the master bathroom add to the luxury of a walk-in shower and floating double vanity, and a separate dressing room with a built-in closet system offers even more indulgent space. Ideally laid out for privacy, two guest rooms, one with en-suite bath, are situated at the opposite end of the home. The guest cottage, currently in use as an art studio, includes a full bath for perfect versatility as an additional living space, exercise area, or work-from-home oasis. The convenience and style of this address in the character-rich Indian Beach/Sapphire Shores neighborhood cannot be overstated. From the magnificent banyan tree out front to the polished interior and architectural details, this is livable luxury within steps of Sarasota Bay, Sapphire Shores Park and the renowned Ringling Museum of Art, with the airport and all of downtown Sarasota’s amenities accessible in just a few minutes.
