The beach life. The boating life. A year-round vacation lifestyle. This private compound in the heart of Turtle Beach is the perfect hub for celebrating Siesta Key’s sun and fun. Within an easy two-minute walk, you can stroll on the quartz-crystal sands of Turtle Beach via deeded beach access or get in your boat at neighboring Bayfront Marina. Lush native landscaping thrives under a perfectly-trimmed oak canopy with a sprinkling of special spaces such as herb garden, butterfly garden, flowering shrubs, winding walkways, beach-style BBQ grill, social seating area and a pedestrian access gate.
This one-owner island gem was built to last and has been lovingly maintained and updated. The design incorporates old-Florida dogtrot style with east and west screened porches that create great cross ventilation through the home. The quality of construction and materials is a rare find. The home is fully impact rated and extremely well insulated from weather and sound. Notable features include: full-hip roof with steep slope and continuous beams connected with custom welded steel connectors; two layers of exterior siding for extra lateral and uplift strength; exterior walls are double strapped to the floor and roof; solid-wood soffits throughout; R30 spray foam insulation; 24-gauge Galvalume standing-seam metal roof; and Pella insulated impact windows. Inside, luxury appointments include ash engineered hardwood floors, poplar tongue-and-groove cathedral ceiling, wood cabinetry, stone countertops and countless custom details for ease of living.
The home has two bedrooms and two baths on the main level, a loft and full bath on the third level (which could be used as a guest suite), and an additional bedroom and full bath with a separate entrance on the ground level. The large pool area is completely screened in. The heated pool includes a long bench seat with therapy jets.
The location is perfect for relaxed island living -- close to lifestyle amenities including walking distance to Turtle Beach, Turtle Beach Grill and Ophelia’s Fine Dining, and within five miles of Siesta Key South Village, Sarasota Pavilion and Siesta Village. The free Siesta Key Breeze Trolley stops at the driveway and travels from Siesta Village to Turtle Beach with stops along all beach, shopping and dining destinations.
