Serenissima

A stunning ode to the majesty of Renaissance Venice, Serenissima “The Most Serene” is one of the finest homes ever built in Florida. The Beachfront Estate is incomparable in architecture, irreplaceable in artistic beauty and and situated on the southern end of the Longboat Key, this palatial masterwork embraces a luminous panorama of sea, sand and sky. The serene yet powerful exterior dazzles with its white Italianate façade, while the interior presents unprecedented design and luxury.

Serenissima engages all of the senses, starting with the breathtaking atrium-style marble-clad entry hall, where a brass trimmed and glass birdcage elevator awaits passengers, peering upwards you are met with stunning colonnades on the living floors above and the handcrafted majestic glass dome opening to the skies, and before your eyes the azure Gulf of Mexico melts into the horizon.

Indulgent details such as gold-leaf domed ceilings, gold and crystal faucets, intricate trompe l’oeil features throughout the home, beautiful wall sconces and sparkling chandeliers, a 10-seat home theatre with stage and 100 foot screen, graceful silk drapes with distinctive detailing, even elegant decorative finial hinges and custom door handles, subtle rope lighting in recessed ceilings, and electric shades on nearly all windows, help to make this home the epitome of style and sophistication.

Designed with a reverence for craftsmanship; lyrical Venetian murals, beautiful locally designed and fabricated stained glass windows and doors, custom balustrades along wide colonnades on each floor, extraordinary millwork and carefully curated stone, marble and granite throughout are just a glimpse of the details across three living levels.

Serenissima truly does blend spectacular entertaining with warm living spaces. Even the grand salon, which could easily fit 100 guests, has intimate seating areas perfect for a family crossword puzzle night or for gathering to watch a major sporting event with a few friends. The kitchen is master-chef quality, yet also a perfect setting for family holidays and celebrations, with ample areas to either participate in the feast’s preparations on simply to keep the cook company, it is fantastic for congregation and conversation.

Three levels of palatial terraces encased in glass rails present striking views over the sprawling pool with infinity edge to the captivating backdrop of the Gulf just beyond.

Supreme in scale, Serenissima balances voluminous spaces for entertaining with intimate leisure rooms, all of which inspire memorable moments with family. These include a magnificent grand salon, which could easily accommodate 100 guests, a master chef’s kitchen ideal for congregation and conversation, 10-seat theatre and Sun Room adjacent to the pool.

The second living level of the home is for intimate family living.  A central sitting room with full kitchenette separates double master suites and offices, all of which offer a unique security system making this area especially fortified should an owner choose to engage it.  This level also offers an en-suite guest suite, two full laundry rooms and access with both the Bird Cage elevator and a service elevator, as well as the grand staircase.

At Serenissima, active days of sand castle building, shell seeking, sailing, golfing or theatre-going are capped by spectacular sunsets enjoyed from expansive terraces with incredible views spanning the infinity pool, beach and Gulf.
