Unrivaled location, breathtaking views, and ideal water access combine with an impeccably constructed and maintained home to offer one of the finest bayfront opportunities in Sarasota today. This clean-lined coastal style home is ideally situated West of Trail in the beloved Paradise Shores neighborhood, between Harbor Acres to the north and Cherokee Park to the south. Custom built for enjoying a gracious waterfront lifestyle, the elevated four bedroom, four bathroom home is designed around panoramic west-facing sunset views that rival those of a penthouse condo. It is also built to last, atop 18 stout, poured concrete pilings dug deep into the earth. Ascend the front steps to a classic Florida front porch, spanning the width of the facade and beckoning guests inside. The creamy white clapboard exterior flows seamlessly with the soothing neutral palette inside that puts the views at center stage. Wide open vistas and abundant natural light steal the first impression, but the thoughtfully arranged interior spaces soon snap into focus. The interiors are defined by restrained style and timeless appeal. Generous open-concept public rooms and ample outdoor decks offer effortless entertaining. The double-island kitchen features a hidden walk-in pantry, a built-in dining banquette, and quality appliances including Wolf double ovens, Miele dishwasher, and Bosch gas cooktop. A main floor owners' suite provides peaceful respite, including a private deck for morning coffee or yoga, while dual home office spaces cater to today’s work-life balance. Smart touches like a dumbwaiter to the garage level and a laundry chute from above offer unexpected convenience. Upstairs, three large bedrooms, each with spacious walk-in closets and big water views, encircle a lofted bonus room overlooking the great room below and the bay beyond. A secondary laundry area on the upper floor is ideal for families or guests. Down below, the garage level offers conditioned storage space and a home gym, parking for 5+ cars, and vast, versatile unfinished recreation space limited only by your imagination. Vintage mid century modern glass doors (salvaged from the original home that previously stood on this site) roll up to reveal a back yard oasis, featuring a saltwater pool and spa stretched along the bay, 100’ of water frontage, and a newer dock with 16,000 lb. boat lift. Boaters take note: few mainland properties combine deep water dockage just off your seawall with immediate access to Big Pass and open water without any bridges, canals, or no wake zones in your path. Enjoy your tropical paradise and rest easy knowing that elevated concrete block construction and a whole-home natural gas generator will help you weather any storm. Paradise Shores is an easy walk to the restaurants and shops of Southside Village and a quick drive from downtown, but despite this proximity, the neighborhood still manages to feel tucked away, a hidden gem sparkling on the bay. Endless views, unrivaled boating, and gracious living await.
