Elegance, privacy and nature abound in this stunning Longboat Key waterfront home. Nestled on half an acre at the bay end of one of Longboat Key Estates’ coveted canals, The Dolphin House, designed by local architect Las Casitas in 2003 and named after the abundance of marine life that can be seen at any given time from the 200 ft of waterfront, is a perfect marriage of serenity and style. The original owners spared no expense on the craftsmanship and finishing of this exquisite 4 bed plus den, 4 car garage, Mediterranean-style residence.
The thoughtfully designed floor plan allows each family member their space, yet encourages guests to gather in the spacious kitchen/family room or linger on the covered decks to enjoy the morning sun, or watch the colors change and the marine life play in the bay as the sun goes down. Without a doubt, the most outstanding feature of The Dolphin House is the stunning panoramic views from almost every room in the house. The expansive 1st and 2nd floor decks invite you to sit awhile and enjoy the sounds and sights of the marine and bird life. It is so tranquil that it is hard to believe that you are so close to the bustle and vibrancy of St Armands Circle. If you want to go shell seeking or swimming at sunset, you can access the residents-only gate to one of the prettiest stretches of the Gulf of Mexico hidden behind a bank of luscious sea grapes. An added bonus, Keep your boat and water toys tucked away on the 60’ dock with 12,000lb boat lift along the sheltered canal. This home is being sold turnkey furnished. The 2 cars are available. Please explore the many features of this home in the MLS attachments. These include: elevator, 200 ft of waterfront, open design pool and spa, gas fireplace, 2 large garages to fit 4 cars, video surveillance, community well for irrigation, community boat dock, deeded private beach access.
