|8423 MIDNIGHT PASS ROAD, SARASOTA FL 34242|
Escape to your very own private island paradise on world-famous Siesta Key. Majestically poised along the shimmering waters of the Intracoastal Waterway sits this masterfully redesigned and meticulously renovated residence. This grand yet cozy estate is impressive from the moment one enters the private gates and is welcomed by the long paver circular drive, giant oak trees, lush landscape, sparkling fountain and the grand entry. Following an extensive reconstruction in 2000, this home has been enlarged and enhanced to create a perfect balance between old-world European charm and modern-day luxury. From the custom-crafted iron gates to the imported Bulgarian mosaic tiles, this residence exudes classic Mediterranean elegance at its finest. Once inside, the 20-foot ceiling in the grand salon and the intricate European-influenced designs further accentuate the level of detail and craftsmanship throughout. The second-level skywalk (with water views) separates the private cathedral-ceilinged master suite from three additional bedrooms plus an oversized home office. The lush gardens and tropical landscaping are one-of-a-kind and provide a backdrop for the infinity-edge pool and heated spa with a lower-level lounging pool. The multi-leveled spacious terraces spanning the back of the home include a generously sized loggia and create extra living space to enjoy that perfect morning cup of coffee or just relax and take in the sounds of the gentle bay waters.
