Privately situated in John Ringling Estates on an extraordinary bayfront location with close proximity to St. Armands Circle, this masterfully crafted estate presents expansive views of the Ringling Bridge and cityscape. 113 feet of captivating waterfront is viewable from most rooms while worldly influences and illustrious finishes accentuate the customized 5,000 SF home. Entering a circular driveway centered by an enchanting fountain, the two-story residence stands like a fortress for lavish comforts and an incredible coastal lifestyle. Superb vistas are displayed through double sets of glass sliders and two-story-high picture windows the moment you enter the glass and wrought iron double doors. A beautifully curated wood and wrought iron staircase draw your gaze to the second floor and breathtakingly high ceilings, while a carved stone gas fireplace anchors the living room. Flowing effortlessly to the formal dining room, a modern-style wet bar with a wine refrigeration enhances the space and transitions to the contemporary kitchen boasting Miele appliances, built-in coffee maker, chic cabinetry, Silestone countertops and two islands. Disappearing sliders open the eat-in kitchen to the terrace for dining alfresco above the pool and bay. On the opposite wing, just off the living room, you find a den directly across from a guest suite featuring sliders that open to the balcony and a high-end en-suite bath. Take the stairs or elevator to the second level to locate two more generously sized bedrooms that share a Jack-and-Jill bath and one room opens to a private terrace facing the water. Across the landing graced with more wrought iron railing, you discover the master suite encompassing its own wing for ultimate privacy, featuring a partial wraparound balcony, sitting area, built-ins, two walk-in closets with custom built-ins, and double doors leading to the en-suite bath featuring dual vanities, and a walk-in shower. The outdoor space boasts a welcoming resort styled terrace that extends the living space from inside and stairs that lead to the pool and fenced backyard on the water’s edge, hosting mature fruiting foliage and landscaping. For the ultimate island-style experience, the recently upgraded dock features lifts for kayaks, a large vessel, (14,000 lb lift) and up to three jet skis. Adding to the notable list of amenities found in this home are the wine room, ample storage and flex space for versatility, could be a fitness room, media room or craft room/workshop, complete high-tech security system throughout and 2 tandem-parking garages and one single for up to 5 vehicles, motorbikes, and toys for the water.
