Siesta Key Village on Canal

Welcome home to the house that dreams are made of...a rich and many-layered world deeply-grounded in place and community. This exquisite residence is located on the quiet side of Siesta Key Village, yet very much in the midst of its local flavor -- the beach, the village, a private boat dock, and the positivity of year-round awe-inspiring sunsets.


Built by the owners, a design/build dynamic duo, as their personal retreat, every detail is carefully considered and executed. Eclectic finesse and a touch of whimsy define the 3,122 sq. ft. residence where a tasteful mix of textures, colors, shapes and light invoke the timeless appeal of a rare masterpiece. Completed in 2018, everything about this home feels safe and new: Levels one, two and three are concrete block. Level four is two-by-six wood frame. All glass is impact rated to 160 MPH. Standing seam metal roof. Six-foot privacy wall with keypad-protected metal security gates.


A three-way elevator provides access to all floors, as does the free-floating steel staircase with floor-to-ceiling glass-panels that provide open sightlines of the living areas. Level three is home to the open-concept living room, dining room and kitchen. Private quarters are on levels two and four. Every floor has a sizable covered balcony. There’s even a grilling balcony by the kitchen. For the piece de resistance, a spiral staircase leads from the fourth-floor balcony to a bonus roof-top balcony with views of Siesta Village, Siesta Beach, Downtown Sarasota and multiple 4th of July firework displays.


Down on the ground level, you’ll find a two-car garage, plus a massive 440 sq. ft. covered lanai adjacent to the refreshing outdoor pool. Across the driveway is a private boat dock with 10,000-lbs. lift and room for a second lift. Access to the bay is via a canal with 13-ft. clearance at the Midnight Pass Road bridge.


Siesta Village is a wonderful, walkable neighborhood filled with restaurants, shops and personal services. The best attraction is the classic stroll down to the beach to watch the sunset. It stirs the soul and guarantees that Siesta Key will always be a great place to live.
