Set in a commanding waterfront location on Hillview Drive, one of the most prized addresses in Sarasota, this simply sublime home is bestowed with scenic southern exposure, vast yet comfortable living spaces and exceptional quality. Panoramic perspectives across Sarasota Bay, one of the most beautiful waterscapes in the world, enhance most of the 7,000+ square feet. Exquisitely spacious, the first floor is where you will find a handsome office, guest suite, family room lined with French doors opening to the terrace, and an epicure’s kitchen, recently updated with new quartz surfaces. Climb the signature staircase or allow the elevator to whisk you to the second level, which encompasses three ensuite bedrooms, a den/flex area and a lavish master retreat with dual baths (the view from the shower is unforgettable), two large walk-in closets, a fireplace, and French doors connecting with a Bay-view covered terrace. Experience the beauty of Sarasota Bay and the bliss of Florida living as you entertain poolside, prepare lunch from the outdoor kitchen, or set out from your private dock with lift to cruise alongside playful dolphins and lush mangroves. The newly painted Mediterranean-style architecture welcomes guests with elegance and beauty. A four-car garage, extensive lower-level storage plus non-conforming space all maximize the ability to live large and comfortably. Regarded as Sarasota’s finest neighborhood, Harbor Acres is merely minutes from Southside Village, Southside Elementary School and downtown.
