Sarasota, FL 34236 | 5 Beds, 4 Baths, 5,358 Sq. Ft.

Truly a unique home for the connoisseur of life. A mariner's delight with concrete seawall, and an assigned boat slip on-site. Experience living on Whitaker's Bayou, a beautiful wide and deep saltwater canal, moments from the bay. The Mediterranean beauty of this estate lends itself to entertaining both on and off the water. Residing in the private and distinguished gated community, Whitaker's Landing, a secluded sanctuary located on Sarasota Bay, offers the very best of Florida living. The home's trademark tower with its coral cast stone and stunning wrought iron beckons you inside. The interior is truly remarkable with all the special touches of a grand estate with formal living and dining room, gourmet kitchen, casual gathering spaces, game room with wet bar and entertainment center, home office/library, gorgeous powder/pool bath, summer kitchen, elevator and six-car motor salon with drive through ability and rear watercraft access. The exquisite craftsmanship is evident throughout with travertine stone floors set in a Versailles pattern, stained trim work, crown molding, exotic 2 1/2" thick chisel edge granites, pecky cypress ceilings, exceptional custom cabinetry and beautiful chandeliers. Live minutes to downtown in one of only two gated communities in downtown Sarasota.
