This casually elegant custom designed residence by DSDG Architects is in the exclusive gated Lighthouse Point waterfront enclave of just 16 custom residences at the southern end of Longboat Key. Lighthouse Point is a peninsula nestled on a deepwater boat basin at the edge of the Intracoastal Waterway and New Pass.
The remarkable design has taken advantage of the exceptional site offering expansive water views for enjoying the peaceful tropical outdoors in a beautifully landscaped setting. Meticulous attention to detail and craftmanship, from the large open living spaces with custom moldings, soaring ceilings and inlaid marble floors, to the stunning finishes and fixtures has created an elegant, yet comfortable home that offers a peaceful sanctuary for the owners, a perfect place for enjoying memorable family gatherings or stylish entertaining.
The residence includes a separate living room, dining room that can seat 10 for dinner parties, family room, office with custom wooden built-ins, and a three-car side entry garage with room for storage, deep-water dock on a large secluded harbour, and Pella impact storm glass windows and French doors throughout. The spacious chef’s kitchen includes wood cabinets, gas cooktop with a marble back splash, two dishwashers, wine cooler and other high-end appliances. The master suite on the first living level has his and hers bathrooms and large walk-in closets, as well as a breakfast bar. In addition, there are two en-suite guest bedrooms including one with a spacious sitting area. There is a third guest suite located on the other side of the courtyard that the current owners use as an art studio, but perfect for home gym, guest quarters or a caretaker apartment.
Within the private sunlit courtyard is a beautifully designed 45’ heated saltwater lap pool and expansive seating areas surrounded by lush landscaping and a lion fountain (the pool heater was replaced this year.) A wide sloped lawn leads to a private dock, suitable for a 35-40 foot boat, and is fitted with a boat lift. Enjoy endless sunsets from the dock or on your boat, watch frolicking dolphins, manatees and beautiful birds at your private tropical oasis on Longboat Key.
The four HVAC systems were replaced this year and the hot water heater in 2019. The house was built 2’ above the required base flood elevation. Owners in the Lighthouse Point neighborhood enjoy their own tennis court plus can walk the nearby gulf front beach, steps to the Resort at the Longboat Key Club and the Links Golf Course and fitness center. Famed St. Armand’s Circle is just over a mile away.
