As you step onto the sun-kissed grounds of your bayfront estate in Sarasota's exclusive Harbor Acres, you're greeted by the glistening expanse of the Sarasota Bay. This isn't just any morning; this is your morning in a modern British West Indies-style paradise that sprawls over 11,275 sqft.
You begin by descending the Elba White stone steps, pausing momentarily to appreciate the architectural marvel by Stofft Cooney Architects, a beacon of sophistication and luxury. The allure of the bay draws you closer, but first, a breakfast in the dazzling kitchen awaits. Here, the morning sun filters in, casting a soft light on the elegant La Cornue range and glinting off the quartzite countertops. You whip up a gourmet breakfast, relishing the state-of-the-art Sub-Zero appliances and, of course, paired with a vintage from your temperature-controlled wine display.
After savoring your meal in the stylish breakfast nook, you head to the gym, where state-of-the-art technology meets the motivation from mesmerizing views of the Ringling Bridge and downtown. With your morning workout done, you decide it's time to embrace the sun. You head to the expansive outdoor space adorned in Elba White stone tile. Here, the infinity pool beckons, and you dive into its refreshing embrace, the fire bowls flanking it adding to the ambiance.
Post-swim, you dry off and decide to embark on a water adventure, leveraging the convenience of your 27,000-lb. high-speed boat lift. The bay's gentle waves make for a serene boat ride, with the cityscape serving as a majestic backdrop.
Returning, lunch is an outdoor affair. The kitchen, boasting a Kalamazoo grill, serves up a delightful meal which you enjoy under the screened covered porch. The motorized bug screens ensure an uninterrupted meal, and you muse on how every detail of this house has been thoughtfully executed.
Afternoon calls for some relaxation. The clubroom, with its plush seating and entertainment areas, proves ideal. You switch on the home theater speaker system, immersing yourself in cinematic bliss. As evening approaches, you head to the primary suite, indulging in a spa-like experience in your opulent bathroom with blue quartzite finishes.
The day winds down, but not before you step out onto the bayfront terrace, drink in hand. The sun sets, casting hues of pinks and oranges across the bay, the skyline silhouetting against the fiery backdrop. This isn't just luxury; this is your luxury, every single day at your very own slice of heaven in Sarasota. Welcome to the epitome of affluence. Welcome home.
