Relish privacy and picturesque views on tranquil Bayou Sound in this stately custom-built home featuring impeccable craftsmanship and generous, elegantly designed spaces in guard-gated Bay Isles on Longboat Key. This home includes 3 en-suite bedrooms plus an office. Mahogany entry doors set the tone for the interior of the 3,600-SF French country-style residence, which was completed in 2003 by Sarasota’s BW Saba Custom Builders. The solid 3-level mostly concrete block home features high beamed ceilings, curved archways, hickory floors and wonderful sight lines throughout the main living areas. The inviting living room features a stone gas fireplace and extensive built-in cabinetry and is across the hall from a lovely formal dining room and bar. Abundant natural light flows through transom windows and multiple French-style sliding glass doors in the Great room that open to an enchanting loggia with archways overlooking the pool, flourishing natural landscape and serene bayou. A screened patio is perfect for alfresco dining with access to the expansive kitchen, featuring a casual dining area, black granite counters, large island with seating, built-in desk and gas range. The capacious owner’s retreat on the main level includes a large bedroom with a tray ceiling and sitting area beside high windows with gorgeous views of the verdant surroundings. In addition to a spacious walk-in closet/dressing room with numerous built-ins, you’ll find ample storage in separate linen and storage closets. The primary bathroom has transom windows, a sizable walk-in shower, soaking tub with stylish “fireplace” niche and dual vanities with deep drawers. Adjacent to the primary suite are a handsome office with built-in desk and cabinetry and a full pool bath with a pocket door that can convert it into a smaller powder room for guests. The first floor also has a versatile laundry room with a sink, counters, and a built-in desk. Overnight visitors will enjoy comfort and privacy in two guest en-suite bedrooms on the second and third levels. In addition, an enormous flex space on the third level offers countless options, such as a fitness room, playroom or artist’s studio. Other notable highlights of the home include wood casement windows, crown molding, 8’ solid-core doors, 7” baseboards on the first floor, wood plantation shutters and custom draperies. There also is a 2-car garage with epoxy flooring and a separate storage room. Bay Isles’ amenities include a private Gulf-front beach club and optional membership in Longboat Key Club, which includes a tennis club and 45 holes of golf. This stunning one-of-a-kind home is just a mile to Publix and CVS, and a short drive to vibrant St. Armands Circle and downtown Sarasota.
