Nestled just a short walk from St. Armands Circle and designated a historic structure by the city of Sarasota, Casa del Mar is a 1930’s Spanish Modernist home immersed in unforgettable natural splendor and vintage character. Once behind the gates, the property unfolds through verdant archways to incredibly beautiful gardens facing Sarasota Bay, a shimmering infinity pool and lush pergola. The elegantly sprawling retreat encompasses a 4 bedroom main house featuring original and newer living spaces and an adorable 2 bedroom guest house built in 2007. Beamed ceilings, graceful archways, intricate ironwork, wood burning fireplaces, large picture windows, period tile and original wood floors pay homage to a bygone era of effortless grace. Step into the newer kitchen and instantly you will be captivated by soaring tropical views, fresh and light cream cabinetry, a center island and stylish lighting. The dreamy master suite includes his and hers marble-adorned baths, 2 walk-in closets, and sweetheart balcony overlooking the Bay. An exercise room and sauna encourage well-being and relaxation. The 2 garages easily accommodate 4 cars. While you will feel a world away at Casa del Mar, The Circle is merely steps away with its sophisticated shops and restaurants, as are the powder-soft sands of Lido Beach. This highly sought-after address is also within easy reach of downtown Sarasota’s ballet, opera, symphony, shopping and dining.
