Direct Gulf-front living on Longboat Key is a discerning venture into an unmatched, luxurious waterfront lifestyle. This custom-built estate by Metrix Design & Build is perfectly situated on nearly two-aces of property overlooking pristine beach shores and offering 150-feet of beach frontage. Set among lush, professionally manicured landscaping beside the coastal landscape of the Gulf of Mexico, the private, gated entrance is a distinct welcome to this unforgettable abode. The idea behind the design of this striking home was to incorporate intricately sculpted features that are perfectly highlighted by breathtaking vistas. From almost any room, you can look out to the shoreline of the Gulf and relish breathtaking crimson sunsets as the ideal ending to any day. This home’s interior is spread across two living levels, comprising a four-bedroom main residence and separate three-bedroom guest home. Solid wood and glass double doors open to a grand foyer entry that is adorned with a winding, mahogany split staircase. Marble flooring throughout the first level effortlessly connects each room of the open-concept layout. The impressive interior is stylishly decked out with cathedral ceilings and coffered treatments, intricate moldings, Clerestory impact windows, Bisazza glass mosaics, wrought iron railings, as well as a two-story library inspired by the legendary Biltmore Hotel. The hub of the first floor is organized around the kitchen, great room and dining areas at the heart of the house. The gourmet chef’s space features stone countertops, professional grade appliances, breakfast bar, island and two pantries (both are walk-ins and one is Butler style). The northwest master wing completes the first level, with its panoramic beach views, morning kitchen, plus his/her walk-in closets and spa-inspired marble bathrooms. Take the stairs or three-stop elevator up to the guest level, housing three bedroom suites (one is master-sized), ensuring a private experience when overnight guests visit. The options for relaxation are endless, and the elaborate outdoor entertaining areas are the perfect places to escape. Beachfront balconies span hundreds of feet on each level. The ground-level bonus room (currently being used as an exercise room) can be repurposed as a wonderful cabana to complement the pavered sundeck, saltwater heated swimming pool with sun shelf, raised spa and summer kitchen. Nestled in a central spot, near the best that Sarasota offers, you will fall in love with this special beach estate.
