Imagine waking up in your exquisite two-story estate at 280 Golden Gate Point UNIT 400 in Sarasota, Florida. As the owner of this $11,975,000 property, your day begins with breathtaking 360-degree views of Sarasota Bay and the Ringling Bridge, visible through the floor-to-ceiling windows of your 7,798 sqft home.

Your morning starts with a leisurely breakfast in the elegantly minimalist kitchen, equipped with top-of-the-line Wolf and Gaggenau appliances. You enjoy your meal in the breakfast area, which opens entirely to the expansive wrap-around terrace through a full-height accordion glass wall, allowing you to bask in the warm Florida sun.

After breakfast, you take a moment to appreciate the artistry of your home, from the sculptural steel staircase connecting the levels to the collectible antique and modern designer light fixtures. You then decide to spend some time in your private fitness space, complete with cork flooring and yoga wall stations, energizing your body for the day ahead.

As the afternoon unfolds, you might choose to work in one of your dual offices, uniquely connected by a double-sided see-through glass fireplace, or perhaps relax in the large living space, enjoying the incredible views and comfort. The temperature-controlled wine room offers an excellent selection for an afternoon glass of wine.

In the evening, you host a dinner party in the large dining space, defined by the iconic custom Gala chandelier. The seamless integration of the indoor and outdoor spaces makes entertaining a luxurious and effortless experience. Post-dinner, you and your guests can retreat to the terrace, enjoying Sarasota Bay's tranquil waters and the city lights.

As the day draws to a close, you retire to your massive owner's suite, where the bath features a floating double vanity, Kohler soaker tub, and a glass-enclosed shower, providing a spa-like experience. The adjacent dressing room with integrated LED lighting and a central dresser is the perfect place to unwind.

Living in AQUA, with its exceptional shared amenities like 24-hour concierge, dry sauna, yoga studio, massage suite, and equipped fitness room, enhances your experience. The privacy and security of this 7-unit building, combined with its ideal location for appreciating Sarasota’s coastal beauty and cosmopolitan appeal, make every day here a testament to luxury and comfort.
