Standing tall on Sarasota Bay is this clean-lined coastal dream home, ideally situated West of Trail in one of Sarasota’s most beloved bayfront neighborhoods: Paradise Shores. Special homes like this one do not change hands often; indeed, this is the first time this property has been offered on the open market in several generations. Custom built for appreciating the gracious waterfront lifestyle that Sarasota affords, the elevated four bedroom, four bathroom home is designed around endless west-facing sunset views and is imbued with restrained style and timeless appeal. Ascend the front steps to a classic Florida front porch, spanning the width of the facade and beckoning guests inside. Upon entering, the cheerful exterior gives way to a soothing neutral palette that lets the views take center stage. Wide open vistas and abundant natural light steal the first impression, but the thoughtfully arranged interior soon snaps into focus. Generous open-concept living, dining, and kitchen spaces and ample outdoor decks offer effortless entertaining. A main floor owners' suite provides private respite, while dual home office spaces cater to today’s work-life balance. Smart touches like a large hidden pantry, a dumbwaiter to the garage level, and a laundry chute from above offer unexpected convenience. Upstairs, three large bedrooms, each with spacious walk-in closets and big views, encircle a lofted bonus room overlooking the great room below and the bay beyond. A secondary laundry area on the upper floor is ideal for families or frequent guests. Down below, the garage level offers air conditioned storage space and a home gym, parking for 5+ cars, and vast, versatile unfinished recreation space limited only by your imagination. Vintage glass doors (salvaged from the original home that first stood on this site) roll up to reveal a back yard oasis, featuring a saltwater lap pool and spa stretched along the bay, 100’ of water frontage, and a newer dock with 16,000 lb. boat lift. Boaters take note: few mainland boating properties combine deep water dockage just off your seawall with immediate access to Big Pass and open water without any bridges, canals, or no wake zones in your path. Enjoy your tropical paradise and rest easy knowing that elevated concrete block construction and a whole-home natural gas generator will help you weather any storm. Paradise Shores is an easy walk to the restaurants and shops of Southside Village and a quick drive from downtown, but despite this proximity, the neighborhood still manages to feel tucked away, a hidden gem sparkling on the bay. Endless views, unrivaled boating, and gracious living await.
