About 8415 Midnight Pass Road

Discover la Casa del Orchidee, an extraordinary island paradise. This spectacular walled and gated private estate is sited directly on Siesta Key’s Sarasota Bay and Intracoastal Waterway, offering spectacular views across the bay. The expansive circular paver driveway and imported travertine fountain lead to the 5,800+ square-foot, 5-bedroom, 5.5-bath home, reminiscent of an Italian villa. The home's inviting entry is enhanced by beautifully crafted custom wrought iron and glass doors, and soaring 21-foot ceiling, and an exquisite chandelier flowing to beautifully scaled rooms. Taking full advantage of the mesmerizing bay views, the spacious living spaces flow seamlessly. The principal rooms are of generous proportions; the great room is enhanced by a coffered ceiling and hardwood floors and is open to the chef-inspired island kitchen featuring custom hardwood cabinetry, quartzite counters, breakfast bar, natural gas Capital Connoisseurian Series range and custom copper hood, Sub-Zero refrigeration, dual KitchenAid dishwashers, travertine floors, and high-capacity RO system, among the list of added features. With most rooms overlooking the bay, this home celebrates the harmonious relationship between architecture and landscape and ensures an effortless transition to exterior spaces with idyllic spots for open-air leisure. The adjoining bayfront dining room can accommodate large gatherings; the screened lanai is the idyllic setting for alfresco dining and enjoying balmy bay breezes. Additional main floor areas include an office, two en-suite guest bedrooms with balconies, a half bath, and a butler’s pantry/laundry room. Upstairs, accessed by the stairs or elevator, the spacious waterfront master bedroom suite boasts a bayfront balcony, high ceilings and dazzling views of the Intracoastal Waterway. A haven of relaxation, the sumptuous suite offers a respite from the outside world: luxurious bathroom with travertine floors, marble counters, fully outfitted dressing room and dual walk-in closets. An additional guest en suite (5th bedroom currently an executive office), a quiet waterfront area to work. The non-conforming lower level offers a ground-level front entry and direct access to the outdoors, the perfect space for a game room and exercise room. A private, tranquil paradise for the outdoor enthusiast, the spacious, screened lanai with a saltwater pool and spa, paver decking, and a pool house boasting both a full bath and full outdoor kitchen. The tropically landscaped yard gently rolls down to the water's edge, where you'll find dolphin frolicking and manatees lazily rolling along. The rare bayfront boathouse and dock with a covered boat lift offer an observation deck - an amazing place to watch the colorful sunrises and sunsets over the bay. No fixed bridges, boat directly to the open water of the Gulf of Mexico. A partial list of upgrades and features of this special home: elevator to all floors, custom powder-coated hurricane-rated Origin (UK) windows and doors, and garage doors, new (2022) imported handmade Italian tile roof, whole-house water softener, Hansgrohe fixtures, mature, tropical landscaping with lighting and irrigation well.
