Old Palm Beach style and elegance are evident in this spectacular historically designated MediterraneanRevivalestate designed by Sarasota's first architect Alex Browning. Recently renovated, this jewel of a home incorporates modern conveniences with the glamour and style of Sarasota's unique history. Prominently situated on three lots, this home exudes a certain charm and style one experiences even before arriving. Upon entry, the foyer greets you and sets the theme for the interior with arched transom windows atop double doors and marble tile flooring with a decorative inlay. A spacious great room featuring 10-foot ceilings, 9-foot French doors, and a wood-burning fireplace adorned by a stone and granite mantel and hearth is one of many dynamic focal points of this home. The estate-sized completely fenced, lushly landscaped and private backyard area includes fountains, a partially covered courtyard perfect for entertaining, a newer sparkling oversized vintage pool, and koi pond.
A gourmet kitchen with a walk-in pantry, 44-inch dual fuel gas convection range, 48-inch white wood cabinets with glass doors, and an exceptionally large quartz center island with an abundance of counter space provides more than enough space to prepare the largest of meals and still have plenty of room to sit and enjoy. Off the great room, you walk through glass French doors to a large family room with a fireplace that features a mantel decorated with tile shields and crests. This room has two sets of French doors opening to the exterior of the home and hardwood floors. The spacious owner's retreat has French doors, two custom walk-in closets, a sitting area, hardwood floors, and a lavish spa-like bathroom with freestanding slipper tub, steam shower with marble wall and ceiling tiles, crystal chandelier, and French doors with transom windows opening onto the backyard. In addition to a study or office, there are three additional bedroom suites with en-suite bathrooms. Other rooms include a large laundry, powder room, and a separate garage. Magnificent design elements, fine cabinetry, and exceptional amenities complete this elegantly custom and historically significant home.
