My wonderful buyers have found their paradise. SOLD for $8,000,000.00. More than a home, this magnificent Longboat Key residence is a way of life.
This elegant custom designed residence by famed architect, Clifford Scholz, is in the exclusive gated Lighthouse Point waterfront enclave of just 16 custom homes at the southern end of Longboat Key. Lighthouse Point is a peninsula nestled between a deepwater boat basin and the shore of New Pass and the Gulf of Mexico.
This private gated residence boasts a commanding view of the Gulf of Mexico. The home emphasizes a sophisticated coastal essence and worldly craftsmanship. The designer carefully crafted a residence with a regal presence that is both comfortable and illustrious, with glistening water views throughout. Archways, two-story-tall ceilings, hardwood and chiseled travertine flooring, elegant designer chandeliers, plantation shutters and smart-home convenience are just a few of the special features.
The formal living room extends through a wall of glass onto the covered terrace and open pool deck, nearby are a private formal dining room, executive-style office with built-in cabinetry and elaborately decorated powder bath. The heart of the home welcomes owners and guests for dining, lounging and gathering within the peaceful family room framed by glass connecting to the outdoors, crowned with expressive large wood ceiling beams, a masterpiece chef’s kitchen, and adjacent butler’s pantry.
A stately staircase or the elevator lead to the second floor where two Gulf-facing junior master suites, and an additional posh guest bedroom with private bath are located. The owner’s retreat is a wing dedicated to solitude and rejuvenation where double doors reveal a gas fireplace, balcony access, incomparable views, a dressing room with dual walk-in organized closets and a resort-level en-suite featuring a glass-enclosed shower and soaking tub.
With expansive outdoor covered and open pool and deck areas, the home is perfect for entertaining indoors and out as music plays on the surround sound, taking in sunrise and sunset walks on the private beach, and having boating adventures on deep open water.
The ultimate peace of mind for its new owners comes with security around the home and automatic hurricane protection that secures every pane of glass.
