Casa de Familia, one of Sarasota's most beautiful bay front homes, is offered for purchase for the very first time. This exquisite family residence is masterfully nestled among majestic grand oaks on a 1.6 acre walled and gated estate with 140 ft of prime shoreline. A tribute to Mediterranean Revival architecture, this stunning home thoughtfully balances authentic design elements of scale, symmetry, and handcrafted finishes with the requirements of today's active family. Large gathering spaces for effortless entertaining seamlessly blend with private suites for seclusion and relaxation. Curved moldings, ornate stonework, trompe l'oeil painting techniques, intricate iron railings, and hand-hewn walnut floors have been skillfully adapted to create this modern day sanctuary. Traditional custom features, a chef's kitchen and luxurious master suite are artfully intertwined with family and guest friendly amenities, en-suite bedrooms, bunk room and dazzling pool with waterfall and gated jump platform. An extraordinary, elevated walkway spans the pool to a covered loggia perched above the water and grounds providing the perfect area for morning coffee and breathtaking sunsets. A magnificent oak canopied courtyard, with clay-tiled portico, connects the main residence to a two story casita, the ultimate retreat for guests and extended family. Casa de Familia offers a rare blend of old world craftsmanship and cherished privacy, moments away from Sarasota's downtown arts district and international airport.
