SARASOTA, FL – Longboat Key is an offshore barrier island running roughly north to south and enclosing the western boundary of Sarasota Bay in Southwest Florida, with the luxury Gulf Coast resort community offering waterfront golf, fine dining, luxury resorts, and 12 miles of white sand beaches.
If that sounds appealing to you – and if you have especially deep pockets – then a newly-listed canal-front residence in Longboat Key’s affluent Country Club Shores neighborhood should be just what you’re looking for, offering total privacy for you and your guests in addition to ample opportunities for both lounging about or launching your water conveyance of choice.
The home, located at 520 Chipping Lane, is currently going for an impressive $5.975 million; it has four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms and features an open floor plan with gold accents throughout. It also has a large gourmet kitchen that should be any chef’s dream, with top-of-the-line appliances such as a Wolf gas stove, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, quartzite countertops, and two sinks.
For those concerned about southern Florida’s propensity for attracting inclement weather, they need not worry due to the hurricane-proof sliding doors in the home’s ground floor living space, which open up to a spacious outdoor patio.
The primary bedroom has double closets, an en-suite bathroom and outdoor terrace. Guests can expect an equally luxurious experience, with three suites to accommodate them – each with its own bathroom – in addition to a private living area with a wet bar and outdoor space for them to congregate in if their host is busy attending to other matters.
The residence also offers resort-style living, with an outdoor lounge, a boat launching area with a private dock, a large covered patio, and a swimming pool. Numerous public amenities are also situated nearby, including tennis, restaurants, boating, and beaches.
