Here’s a chance to own a true Indian Beach estate. The designer's intent was to recreate Ringling Era drama with Mediterranean Revival details like decorative rafter tails, transom windows, tile roofs, coffered ceilings and wood burning fireplaces. Original inspiration came from the Bickel house, a Sarasota landmark designed by Dwight D. Baum, John Ringling’s principle architect responsible for his own home Ca d’ Zan, just blocks away. You’ll feel transported to a time when these stately houses sat on sprawling, tropical grounds with shade trees, walking paths and orchid houses. The main residence has a great room with a fireplace and French doors opening to the covered loggia and brick paver terrace. There’s a formal dining room, classic butler’s pantry and a large, eat in kitchen. Also on the first floor is an oversized utility room which could be used for an office or exercise room and a generous 2 car garage. Upstairs is the master en-suite with a fireplace and Juliette balcony along with two more bedrooms sharing a full bath. The advertised square footage only represents the 2 story main house so please note, there’s also a one bed, one bath cabana overlooking the pool and a 2 bed, 1 bath guest house with a detached garage. This property fronts Bay Shore Rd. and 40th St. so you can use the guest house as a 2nd residence or keep it as part of this magical property rumored to have once belonged to the Ringling family. It’s been said the mango trees were specially cultivated by Ida Ringling.
