Built on Bird Key in 2010, with custom craftsmanship by Bruce Saba Construction, and designed by its architectural-historian/ ASID owner, this very original, Lowcountry Style home exudes an air of Southern grace and charm with its attention to historical detail, lofty ceilings and generous moldings and appointments. This custom transitional 3BR home has been ingeniously angled on the site to capture the light of the day, with late afternoon light flooding the rear, as south light streams all day through the handsome front windows. The lush landscaping has mature trees, climbing bougainvillea, a privacy wall and landscape lighting to create an elegant envelope of privacy and luxury. The entrance to this home, a classic Georgian front door with a half-moon transom and side lights, is enhanced by a welcoming, rocking-chair front porch and opens into the great room with soaring ceilings and a view through disappearing glass doors to the private, tropical landscape beyond. The home has transom windows, a gas fireplace and stove, a built-in speaker system, 8’ solid wood interior doors, a screened lanai with an outdoor kitchen and natural gas grill and a heated salt-water pool. The gourmet kitchen boasts 2 sinks with garbage disposals, as well as 2 dishwashers, Thermador appliances, granite counters and custom cabinetry. Additional features include hurricane-code safeguards, natural gas, foam insulation, hickory engineered flooring, an outdoor shower and security cameras. One of the most prized communities in Sarasota, Bird Key affords the pleasures of a waterfront lifestyle with convenience to all of downtown’s exciting dining, shopping and cultural amenities.
