Incomparable single-family scale and style in an intimate waterfront location on Golden Gate Point with private boat docks and spectacular unobstructed 360-degree views. This two-story Downtown estate has no parallel in Sarasota.
Spanning the fourth and fifth floors of the exclusive Guy-Peterson designed AQUA building, with nearly 8,000 square feet of air-conditioned living space accompanied by 3,432 additional square feet of private outdoor space that includes an expansive wrap-around terrace, this exceptional home encompasses every luxury, all directly on Sarasota Bay and within steps of cosmopolitan Downtown amenities. Floor-to-ceiling windows complement the grand scale of each living space, showcasing exquisite views of the Ringling Bridge and Sarasota Bay. Each room offers incredible views and comfort with seamless access to the enormous private terrace that wraps entirely around the fourth floor. Among the notable design elements in this fully customized home are a sculptural steel staircase artfully connecting the lower and upper levels, collectible antique and modern designer light fixtures, custom artisanal concrete planters, Holland and Sherry draperies, and smart home integrations. Beyond the grand staircase on the entry level, a large dining space defined by an iconic custom Gala chandelier by Rich Brilliant Willing sits adjacent to a wet bar echoing the luxury finishes of the elegantly minimalist kitchen that features Wolf double wall ovens, a Gaggenau 5-burner gas cooktop, Wolf microwave drawer, and Subzero refrigerator. The kitchen and breakfast area open entirely to the terrace through a full-height accordion glass wall that leads to the terrace and additional seating. In addition to the private living spaces on the fourth floor, including two ensuite bedrooms, there is a temperature-controlled wine room, an additional powder bath, service elevator through private vestibule, additional storage, and catering pantry with oven, dishwasher and prep area.

Adjacent to the owners' suite, dual offices are uniquely connected by a double-sided see-through glass fireplace. Opposite the studies, there is a dedicated fitness space with cork flooring and five attached yoga wall stations.
