Lavishly embellished with Old-World authenticity, this Waterfront estate replicates the grandeur of a 17th century Tuscan farmhouse. Artistic beauty blends with panoramic water views in a custom home built by John Cannon in what was Ringling’s personal boat basin featuring protected sailboat water, 180 ft of seawall, a boat dock, 2 lifts and a kayak pad.

selected from what was popular in the Renaissance period. The great room plan creates an unforgettable backdrop for entertaining with 22’ ceiling, gas fireplace and a wet bar adorned with a hammered copper sink. The chef’s kitchen is equipped with an Italian 8-burner gas range and Brazilian soapstone counters. The dining room has a unique brick vaulted ceiling to create an aura of Mediterranean aesthetics while providing a realistic Italian dining experience. The master suite is a romantic retreat complete with his/hers walk in closets and a dream bath of wood and stone accent walls. 2-3 more bedrooms, his and hers offices, bonus room and wine room complete the picture. The room that is currently being used as a gym has a Murphy bed and could easily be converted into a fourth bedroom by adding a closet. There’s a 2,500 sq ft true Fl basement that fits 2-4+ tandem, a car collector’s dream garage. Stone & wrought-iron outdoor terraces with an outdoor kitchen and bar on the main level and spa with fireplace on the upper level, capture natural breezes and water views. There is plenty of room for a ground floor pool or an elevated Infinity pool off the second story terrace. This storybook setting is located near Sarasota’s beaches & cultural attractions.
