Property Description

A secluded drive shaded by regal palms leads you toward the water. Fervent anticipation builds as the private gate deliberately opens on approach. Welcome to 'Casa Del Parasol', a breathtaking bayfront estate in Sarasota, Florida. Twice featured on the Discovery Channel, the expansive complex sits on 1.44 acres, securely walled, with 164 feet of direct frontage on Little Sarasota Bay. The Hemingway-inspired main residence is 6,718 square feet and features 5 bedrooms, 6 full baths & a powder room, an office, theater & game room, wine room, exercise room, elevator, and parking for 8 or more of your finest cars, boats, and recreation vehicles. Passing through immense front-entry doors you’re immediately struck by soaring ceilings, large open spaces, luxurious finishes, neutral colors and travertine tile floors, dynamic bay views, and a distinctive yet comfortable feel. A dining room spacious enough to serve the largest of family gatherings leads to a new gourmet kitchen featuring Cambria quartz counters, custom solid-wood white cabinetry, stainless-steel Dacor appliances, a 1000-bottle wine room and wet bar, Subzero refrigerator, and elegant 6 burner gas stove with custom hood and backsplash. A massive center island anchors the space and opens into a large family room ideal for entertaining family & friends. The office has sparkling views of the bay, ideal for the newfound remote workplace, but challenging for those easily distracted by beauty. An oversized “in-law suite” bedroom with bay-view balcony, walk-in closet, and en-suite bath completes the main level. A short elevator ride to the second level reveals three additional guest bedrooms, each en-suite with walk-in closets and access to the wrap-around bay-view balcony. Rich Brazilian-walnut floors enhance this rich yet relaxing level. Completing the second floor is the luxurious Master suite. This spa-like retreat offers total seclusion from guests and includes two vast walk-in closets, upstairs laundry, fireplace, sitting area, amazing views of the bay, and glamorous en suite bath w/dual vanity, walk-in shower, and separate jetted tub. The downstairs level features a game room and bar, theater room, and exercise room – all air conditioned yet not included in the calculated living space. Split side-load garages with room for 4+ autos complete the ground floor. A separate detached garage with oversized doors provides parking for an additional 4+ cars, boats, and RVs – or the perfect workshop for the tinkerer and hobbyist in you. “Resort Style Pool” is an understatement for this backyard oasis. The mammoth pool includes a spa, enclosed waterslide, 2 small waterfalls and a colossal waterfall with hidden grotto, equipped with TV area, LED lights, and speakers – all lushly landscaped with stone surfaces and rock features. Inside and out, this home was built for entertaining. Take a leisurely stroll down your private pier at sunset, discovering abundant marine life gathering amongst the pilings along the way. The pier concludes with space for your aqua toys, featuring two boat lifts, one 10k lbs. and the other 16k lbs. As the sun sets across the bay, your mind races in thoughts of the coming evening with friends, out to dinner and a cocktail downtown just 15 minutes away. And then toward the next day ahead, perhaps a family picnic at Siesta Key Beach, the number one rated beach in the country, just 10 minutes away. Life is good. ‘Casa Del Parasol’ makes it better.
