This exceptional waterfront residence is located on a quiet street on the coveted north end of Siesta Key just minutes from everything on or off the island. Nestled on the water and just minutes from the pristine powdery sands of Siesta Key Beach, this home represents the best of island living. Built with structural safety in mind, this fortress-like home boasts an impressive array of steel pilings together with impeccable construction and a meticulous renovation that spanned two years, transforming the residence into a true masterpiece. The heart of the house is the great room and library where you can house your extensive book collection yet feel a sense of grandeur in the space that allows for multiple seating areas to relax and enjoy the tranquil water views. A breathtaking gallery soars to the ceiling and a loft over the dining area provides a cozy spot to enjoy a novel. Custom trestles and iron railings from the Vasquez forge in Tampa finish the space and a secret staircase adds an element of mystery to this enchanting room. The kitchen is a chef's dream, featuring top-of-the-line Wolff, Sub-Zero, and Miele appliances, quartzite counters, a coffered ceiling, a breakfast area, and a functional walk-in pantry. Beams have been tastefully incorporated throughout the house and lanai, creating a seamless aesthetic.

The guest wing provides plenty of room for family and guests with three bedrooms and three bathrooms including one with exterior access. Step outside to discover a perfect paradise for outdoor living. A summer kitchen awaits your culinary adventures, while the lanai deck and driveway have been resurfaced with exquisite stonework and pavers. A 10,000-pound boat lift, underwater lights, and a kayak lift are at your disposal and the location is perfect for boat enthusiasts offering great mooring options and depth. There is also a large media and game room to relax and unwind after a day on the water. With over 1000 square feet of outdoor space and a courtyard driveway that can accommodate up to 20 cars, this home is perfect for entertaining on a grand scale. For your comfort and convenience, a newer HVAC and duct system, tankless water heaters, Control 4 home automation, hurricane garage doors, removable hurricane curtains, and a whole-house generator have all been installed.
