Siesta Key Bayfront Luxury

Sold in 35 days at 93% of list price


Follow your dreams to this Siesta Key bayfront home newly remodeled for a sparkling fresh look and feel. 2021 improvements include new kitchen, new baths, impact windows, wide-plank wood floors, new A/C, new water heater and new paint inside/out. Masterfully designed to take advantage of its island location, the home’s positive energy is naturally enhanced with high tongue-and-groove cathedral ceilings and extensive use of water-facing windows and French doors.

This private Siesta Key residence sits on over half an acre and features contemporary coastal charm and a cheerful disposition. Walls of glass and multiple balconies provide full bay views from within. Outside, multi-level decks meander from the outdoor pool to the dock for a resort-like ambiance. The grand foyer adjoins a 100 sq. ft. solarium with glass panel exterior wall and ceiling for an instant connection to the captivating setting. The brand new kitchen delights the inner chef with extensive counters, cooking island, eat-in counter, walk-in pantry and GE Profile appliances. Although separate from the living area, the kitchen is ingeniously connected to the open dining and living rooms which open to the covered balcony and outdoor kitchen via three sets of French doors.

Private quarters include two bedrooms on the first floor, and the owner’s suite on the second floor which includes a sunroom with full bay view via floor-to-ceiling windows on three walls. The upstairs also includes a loft and catwalk overlooking the living areas below. Down on the first level, you’ll find a 4-car garage with 10-ft. and 12-ft. high garage doors and room for 2 car lifts. There’s also a large hobby room/workshop, storage room and open storage area — enough room for all your stuff! A separate guest house over a one-car garage includes a living room, kitchenette, bedroom and oversize bath with glass-panel half ceiling.  Outside, water fun awaits in the open pool area and community dock with private boat lift.

Located in Oyster Cove, a quiet community of only 11 homes, you’re just 1 mile from the South Bridge and Village, 1.5 miles from Turtle Beach and 2 miles from Siesta Beach and Village.
