In today’s Sarasota Herald Tribune, Chris Angermann and Harold Bubil feature one of Sarasota’s most beautiful of neighborhoods, The Oaks Bayside.  With just 135 estate homes, the neighborhood offers picturesque settings for each.  Mature and stately landscaping, beautiful water views, and elegant architecture throughout, along with privacy make this a very special community, and its convenient location close to Sarasota Beaches, shopping and fine dining adds to its appeal.

One of my listings, 95 Osprey Point, was the featured property in the article.  The spectacular five-bedroom and seven-bath 8,500 square foot manse was designed and built by famed architect, Bo MacEwen.  Angerman says of the home, “It is exquisitely detailed throughout, from custom millwork on the walls, ceilings and floors, to hand-carved wooden doors and marble and stone finishes.”

Though grand in scale, this is a home well suited for warm family living.  It has also been planned with entertaining in mind. The gourmet kitchen is perfectly designed for both family gatherings and stately catered affairs, and dining options range from a casual breakfast room in a glass enclosed sunroom, formal dining room with a spectacular chandelier centerpiece, and several outdoor dining vignettes including a full Viking outdoor kitchen and a second floor loggia with space for a hundred guests.

A second lot was added to the estate, which is the site of a full one bedroom guest house with kitchen and spacious terrace overlooking the lushly landscaped grounds, perfect for overnight visitors.

The home is offered for sale at $2,200,000.
