SARASOTA, FL – A huge, lavish resort-style estate situated on four acres of land in Sarasota, Florida that would be ideal for the ultimate staycation – or for welcoming guests for an extended stay – has hit the real estate market for an eye opening $16.8 million.
Located at 8218 Sanderling Road and boasting breathtaking views of the water – the property boasts the banks of Heron Lagoon on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other – the estate features an Impressive six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, along with a guest house in the backyard as well.
Getting in those water views is easy in the residence’s great room, which has floor to ceiling windows and high ceilings, ushering in a sense of tranquility and serenity; the lush hardwood floors and beautiful millwork also contribute to a warm and comfortable feeling throughout.
Of course, you’ll have to tear yourself away from those gorgeous views at some point in order to eat, so it’s fortunate that the great room has a large, adjacent kitchen with custom cabinetry, large marble countertops, an extra-large island, and a plethora of top-of-the-line appliances.
And for those looking to sneak off and get away from it all while still remaining in their home, there is a hidden room located in the lounge that is purposely designed to be in the very quietest part of the house; it’s currently being used as an office, but obviously it can be transformed to suit any purpose needed, such as a secret man-cave for example.
The house comes in at an impressive three stories; the owner’s suite is on the third floor, accessed by a dual staircase, and has a private terrace, two large closets, and a bathroom.
There’s also a vast array of resort style amenities to offer, including a sauna, a steam room, a gym, and a tennis court. In the backyard you’ll find a heart-shaped pool and a hot tub, both with extensive ocean views.
The guesthouse is no slouch either, with a kitchen, dining room, open living room, primary suite, guest bedroom, a large screened-in terrace and an open deck with a dock below; the dock leads to Heron Lagoon, which is the perfect location for a number of relaxing and fun water activities, such as fishing, kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, and more.
