As the owner of Sunset Dream, an exquisite beach mansion nestled in the heart of Anna Maria Island, your ideal day is a symphony of luxury, relaxation, and unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico. From the moment you wake up in your third-level master bedroom, your day is filled with the serene beauty and sophisticated comfort that only this home can offer. Your morning begins with the sun gently rising, illuminating the sky in soft hues of pink and orange. The floor-to-ceiling corner-less wrap-around glass windows of your bedroom offer a panoramic view of the coastline, greeting you with the breathtaking expanse of the Gulf. You make your way to the built-in breakfast bar, where you prepare a cup of coffee, savoring the quietude of the morning.

After a leisurely breakfast, you decide to take advantage of the beautiful weather and head down to the beach. With direct access from your home, the white sandy beach is just steps away. You spend the morning walking along the shore, the waves gently lapping at your feet, and perhaps indulging in some early swimming in the warm, clear waters. Returning home, you rinse off in the outdoor shower before diving into the full-size swimming pool. The in-pool bar seating allows you to enjoy a refreshing drink without ever having to leave the water. The spa and one-story high waterfall add to the feeling of being in your private resort.

Lunch is a casual affair on the ground terrace, where the doors open up to a poolside bar and interior seating area. You relish the opportunity to entertain friends and family in this space, which is designed for conversation and relaxation. In the afternoon, you retreat to the media room for some entertainment. With the press of a button, the room transforms into your private theater, the 155" screen coming alive with your favorite movie or streaming series. The solid smoked oak bar and dual keg beverage service complete the room experience, making it the perfect spot for a Superbowl party or a cozy movie night.

As the day winds down, you prepare for dinner in the contemporary kitchen, designed for engaging home chefs. The corner-less wrap-around glass windows ensure you and your guests are always connected to the breathtaking views outside. Tonight, you opt for a catered event, utilizing the hidden full kitchen dedicated to behind-the-scenes preparation. The dual faucets Galley Workstation® sink, full-size Sub Zero® refrigerator & freezer, and separate wine coolers make the evening flow seamlessly. Dinner is served in the dining area, where the large Euro Doors® open to merge the indoor and outdoor living spaces, offering your guests an unforgettable dining experience under the stars.

The evening concludes with a glass of wine on the terrace, watching the sun set directly off the coast. The luxurious ambiance of your home, combined with the natural beauty of the Gulf, creates a moment of perfect harmony. As you retire to your master bedroom, the hidden TV lift footboard in your custom leather bed is a testament to the thoughtful details that make Sunset Dream a true work of art. You fall asleep to the sound of the waves, content in knowing that each day in this home is a unique experience filled with beauty, comfort, and luxury.
