10,134 Sqft - 995 WHITAKERS, SARASOTA
This gated, secluded, waterfront property is a mariner?s dream. Experience living on Whitaker’s Bayou, a beautiful deep saltwater canal moments from the bay with concrete seawall and its own dock for watercraft. The Mediterranean-style beauty of this estate lends itself to entertaining both on and off the water. Situated in the private and distinguished Whitaker?s Landing, a sanctuary minutes from downtown Sarasota, the home?s trademark tower, with its coral cast stone and stunning wrought iron, beckons you inside. The interior is truly remarkable with all the special touches of a grand estate with formal living and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen, casual gathering spaces, game room with wet bar and entertainment center, office, gorgeous powder room, summer kitchen, elevator and six-car plus motor salon with drive-through ability and rear watercraft access. The exquisite craftsmanship is evident throughout with travertine floors set in a Versailles pattern, stained trim and crown molding, exotic two-and-a-half-inch-thick chisel-edge granite counters, pecky cypress ceilings and beautiful chandeliers. This is a true downtown secret that is gated, private and close to everything.
