This elegantly poised British West Indies retreat was the winner of HGTV’s 2021 Ultimate House Hunt Competition for waterside properties from across the country! Private and gated at the end of the only cul-de-sac in Lido Shores, this estate is located amongst the most architecturally significant homes in the coveted Lido neighborhood. This waterside haven has 112 feet of frontage on New Pass, which provides direct deepwater boating access to the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay. In addition, Lido Shores offers its residents a private gated access to the white sands of North Lido Beach. Modern yet timeless, the five-bedroom residence built in 2013 has an abundance of smart home features and includes two owner suites, one on each level, plus an elevator for absolute convenience. Designed by Brian Phipps, the floorplan offers great open space, soaring 12’ ceilings, expansive sliders and multiple terraces which fuse together the lavish interior comforts with the natural beauty of the surrounding water. The casually elegant great room is appointed with custom built-ins and a gas fireplace and seamlessly integrates with the gourmet kitchen that features beautiful stone countertops, Wolf gas range and oven, two Miele dishwashers and a 60” Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer. A separate 2nd floor guest wing with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchenette provides a quiet respite for company. The upper level comprises the grande owner’s retreat including a gathering room with wet bar, wine refrigeration, and espresso station, as well as a private study, all overlooking an expansive terrace with panoramic views of New Pass and the Gulf of Mexico. The upper owner’s suite offers dual customized walk-in closets, a spa-like en-suite bath with walk-in shower and soaking tub, and a private balcony. The exterior is just as impressive with a fully equipped outdoor kitchen, heated pool with a waterfall feature and hidden seating area, and all-weather dock with a 24,000 lb boat lift and a 4,500 lb double jet ski lift. The entire estate is situated on three-fourths of an acre, which includes the adjacent lot currently integrated as a beautiful park-like greenspace enhanced with incredible landscaping, lighting, pond and a waterfall. The lot is buildable and would make the perfect space for an additional guest home. Being only minutes to St. Armands Circle and Downtown Sarasota, the location offers endless opportunities to enjoy Sarasota’s natural beauty and culture. Everything you have ever envisioned for a private waterside oasis is epitomized in this gorgeous Lido Shores estate! Full feature sheet available upon request.
