Congratulations to my buyer-clients who are soon to enjoy this spectacular six bedroom home situated on a double-lot with 100 feet of Gulf frontage, just steps from the white-powdery sands of Longboat Key.  Sold for $5,750,000.

A lush tropical property including a secluded courtyard with lily pond welcome residents and guests. Beautiful stone and hardwood floors, along with gorgeous lighting, trim and mouldings are found throughout the home.  Entering through the double leaded glass doors visitors are sure to be dazzled by the sizeable living room, with a wall of glass showcasing unparallelled views of the Gulf and its ever-changing sunsets. A state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen, butler’s pantry, formal dining room, and walk-in wine cellar make entertaining a pleasure.

The living room shares a double-sided gas fireplace that leads out to an expansive recessed gulf front terrace with a fully-equipped summer kitchen. A roof-top terrace provides yet another glorious spot to view the sparkling Gulf waters.

The home’s second level houses spacious guest suites and a sitting room with morning kitchen. The master suite is stunning in both size and the views from the rooms. Nearby is a beautifully finished wood-paneled office with walls of glass.  Resort-like amenities such as a large Gulf-front deck, heated pool and spa, wading pools, custom lighting and water features, plus a full bath with a private outdoor shower make this estate like none other on Longboat Key.

This transaction represents the highest sale price for a Longboat Key home in 2014.
