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.
