Architecturally distinguished oasis in Oyster Bay. This modern masterpiece of the Sarasota School of Architecture spans more than 2,400 square feet of interior living space on a massive nearly half-acre lot in a location coveted for its serenity and proximity to all of Sarasota’s lifestyle amenities. Built in 2006, Villa Coquina was designed by Jack Jetton, who worked alongside Paul Rudolph for decades and was involved in the famed Riverview and Sarasota High School projects. Villa Coquina is distinguished as one of the last private residences built by an original member of the Sarasota School.
Ample living space provides for exceptional comfort indoors and out, enhancing the luxurious tropical lifestyle. The home’s open floor plan is complemented by 12’ ceilings and walls of glass that showcase chic modern style and the lush landscape of the oversized lot. Two master suites with large ensuite bathrooms are ideal for both owners’ and guests’ comfort, with an additional bedroom and guest bath adding space for families or hospitality. In addition to the private decks extending from each ensuite bedroom, outdoor living space includes the spacious pool deck and a fully screened lanai with dining and lounge seating. The expansive, sun-filled, and open floor plan kitchen consists of all brand new top of the line appliances, such as Bertazonni gas range, Italian travertine countertops, an oversized island for entertaining, and dedication to quality with custom Reform cabinetry.
This modern construction home is built with compliant elevation and flood design in mind. A complete gut renovation, just completed in 2023, by noted local architect Daniel Lear added to the home’s function and luxury features, with an additional bedroom and ensuite bathroom, Water Works plumbing fixtures, European cabinetry in the kitchen and owners’ bath, polished seashell aggregate floors, designer lighting fixtures, and new pool heater and equipment. An outdoor pool shower, oversized two-car garage with separate entrance, and premium security system add to the amenities.
This rare combination of midcentury provenance and brand-new construction quality is an exceptional opportunity for resort style living within steps of the water. Shaded by majestic live oaks on a secluded cul-de-sac in the envied Oyster Bay enclave, Villa Coquina is perfectly situated for both utmost privacy and immediate access to Sarasota’s finest amenities, including the world famous beaches of Siesta Key, the historic Field Club, and innumerable dining and cultural options Downtown.
