Description of Property

Contemporary private Waterfront Estate, with traditional elements for comfortable living, where Earth and Water unite beautifully. This extremely well-built home is located on 3.3 acres of magnificently landscaped grounds on Phillippi Creek with boat access to Intracoastal Waterway and Gulf of Mexico. Timelessly designed by Architect Leonardo Lunardi to compliment the serenity and natural splendor of this breathtaking, incredibly secluded property. The home, built in 2014, has the Green Building LEED Gold Certification and was designed with the possibility of "aging in place”. Only the best and most exquisite materials have been chosen in construction, e.g. triple-pane hurricane proof windows and glass doors, Mahogany exterior doors and reinforced exterior walls for the highest level of safety and energy efficiency. The list of cutting-edge technology and features is pages long. Additionally to the three bedrooms, there is an office, a library and a large art studio, which would make a terrific professional office or “mother in law” suite as well, with its separate entrance and separation from main living area. Huge screened back porch and deck area and heated pool, with gorgeous view overlooking the Creek. Home sits almost 20 feet high, not in flood zone. Exclusivity and luxury in an unpretentious way, modern design with traditional comfort, tranquility, privacy, and impressive landscape. Fabulous Sarasota location, close to Downtown, Beaches and in an excellent school district.
