Perched majestically on a peninsula, this three-story coastal contemporary style home is one of the most beautiful properties on Siesta Key. “Ripples of the water influenced the architecture of the home — guiding the design of the shape of the roof and the grand terrace of the front entry,” describes Architect Mark Sultana of DSDG Inc. Architects. Indeed this home capitalizes on amazing water views from nearly every room in the house. PGT windows and doors, a standing seam architectural aluminum roof, and folding doors by Solar Innovations combine to provide stability and durability while far surpassing FEMA guidelines.
“This home is for someone who wants absolute refinement -— everything you touch has purpose and intent way beyond the norm,” says Builder Stephen Ellis of My Green Buildings. This LEED Gold rated, highly efficient home boasts a pneumatic glass tube elevator, circular floating staircase, and glass garage doors overlooking the water. The garage is more than ample to showcase a fleet of collectible vehicles. “For an automotive enthusiast, it’s just a dream,” adds Ellis.
Modern architecture and the essence of waterfront living are fused to create this wonderfully dramatic living environment. “The home’s position on the point of a peninsula together with the unique design creates some of the most amazing views available on Siesta Key,” says Peg Davant of Premier Sotheby’s. Joel Schemmel who is jointly listing the home for sale with Davant agrees. “Rarely do you see a home that captures every possible water view and balances that with the simple drama and feel of modernist living,” says Schemmel.
Staged expertly to support the quest for this home’s unique buyer, the home presents beautifully. “There’s a fine line between staging and interior design. Here we focused on making the space attractive, but minimized what we added in order for the view line and architecture to be prominent,” explains Louise Stewart from Stage III Interior Design.
In the main living area, the home’s breathtaking waterfront views do indeed take center stage. A comfortable sectional sofa fills the space and is accompanied by a round Platner table from Knoll provided by Home Resource. A cream rug with a lime green key design from Rugs As Art and matching lime accent pillows add a pop of vibrant color to the open and inviting room.
The home’s dining area centers around an impressive glass topped Kenneth Cobonpue wave table from Home Resource. Graceful and profound, the undulation of the ocean is captured and solidified into a rhythmic sculptural form by the table’s unique wooden base. “Our focus is on quality and timeless design, and the wave table is as much a sculpture, as it is a table,” adds Michael Bush from Home Resource. Six, light cream, leather dining chairs contribute a crisp clean elegance to the room.
The state-of-the art kitchen is integrated into the living area and includes Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances sure to please even the most discerning of chefs. A Silestone quartz countertop with double Bosch dishwashers flanking the sink, combined with the latest LED lighting package make seaside entertaining a breeze.
Considered by many to be the most beautiful room in the home, the “point room” with a curved wall of windows jutting out into the water simulates the feeling of being on the bow of a boat. A white leather sofa and large, Monet-like rug in muted blues and greens create a soft and luxurious space. Hard black leather sling back chairs add pleasing contrast without taking up a lot of visual space. A striking painting from State of the Arts Contemporary Fine Art Gallery in Sarasota reinforces the seaside color scheme and immerses one’s senses in the liquid landscape.
The light and bright master bedroom with silk matelasse bedding provides a relaxing retreat. An all-leather woven Theodore Alexander bench and creamy white leather Charles Eames chair invite one to set aside the worries of the day and place their thoughts upon more soothing notions. A stitched cowhide rug and an original piece of artwork from local artist Jini Mount add a touch of the playful — while the dark, ebony-finished oak bed and nightstands bring a bit of drama to the room.
Folding glass doors spanning along the back of the home allow an unobstructed view of Sarasota Bay and open to the outdoor kitchen area and pool deck. Designers chose to use dark woven wicker Kevin Charles furniture that is not only soothing to the senses but durable as well, creating the perfect low maintenance spot for the home’s occupants to experience magnificent sunsets in true Florida style. “Absolutely breathtaking views and a wonderfully clean, contemporary structure just made this both a pleasure and a dream to work on,” concludes Pat Walter from Stage III Design.
