Celebrate gracious Florida living in this 12,000-square-foot beachfront estate. Nestled on nearly 200 feet of pristine sandy beach on Longboat Key, this exquisite masterpiece offers stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico. No detail has been overlooked in this sheltering space of scrupulous craftsmanship and design integrity. Exposed-beam ceilings and walls of lustrous cedar create a vivid contrast to the gleaming, ash wood floors. Opening onto the dramatic backdrop of sea and sky, the grand room—and terraced spaces beyond—are ideal for entertaining. The commercial-grade kitchen has state-of-the-art appliances and every imaginable amenity, including an eat-in counter for 12 and a butler’s pantry. Other convivial spaces include a formal dining room and a bar and billiards room. There are four guest bedrooms with en-suite baths and a nanny bedroom suite plus a playroom. The sumptuous master suite, on the second floor, offers a serene retreat with its own library and sitting area plus a spa-inspired master bath. Tranquil Gulf breezes beckon you to relax on your private terrace with a soaking hot tub. This spectacular residence also features an elevated pool and spa and a boardwalk leading to the Gulf. Other exquisite features include two offices, a nanny’s suite, fitness room and sauna, sewing room/another bedroom, high-tech electronic safety systems, two elevators, and a four-car garage—with expansion room. Come home to luxury in this welcoming retreat or natural beauty and architectural artistry.
