A hidden paradise on prized Siesta Key, this five bedroom, southern estate radiates island luxury inside and out. Poised on over 2.5 acres on its own peninsula with outstanding views of the Intracoastal Waterway, the 2008-built estate from Dixon Homes was modeled off a prominent Alabama residence and includes a full in-law suite with kitchen. Elegant on approach with the concrete structure of a fortress, towering Oaks to lead you to the French door entry. The sheer spaciousness of the grand formal room is awe-inspiring, offering wood floors, two-story ceilings, hand-tooth crown molding, and a fireplace. Windows along the rear...of the home entreat the eye with water views, and a stunning staircase with French cathedral wrought-iron detail leads upstairs. Everything is designed to optimally utilize space. Utilities are tucked away, and a gourmet kitchen with Miele, Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Fisher-Paykel appliances is centrally located to flow into the formal dining room, butler’s pantry with wet bar and wine refrigerator, breakfast nook, family room and outdoor terrace. No matter where you spend time, you’ll enjoy exceptional views. Both the office and library feature custom wood built-ins, one offers views of greenery, the other of water. All bedrooms have the same luxury with the bonus of custom walk-in closets, knotty pine ceilings, and en-suite bathrooms. Not to be outdone, the upstairs master wing is opulently appointed with a sauna, coffee bar, massive custom closets, soaking tub, steam/rain shower, and more. A second-floor balcony stretches across the back of the home and connects to the master and rear guest suite. Life on Siesta Key wouldn’t be complete without outdoor recreation and this home has it in spades. The open-air travertine terrace includes a heated saltwater pool, spa, full summer kitchen and bar, covered dining areas, and a 1.5-acre greenspace for a future guest house or tennis court. No longer permitted, you’ll be one of the only homes in the area with an extended pier. Perfectly located on the deep waters of the ICW, with a 13K-lb boat lift. Additional items of note are the gym and second walk-in pantry. Only moments away from what has been named the Number 1 beach in the nation.
