Property Description

Owner has reduced price to a point creating an exciting opportunity to own one of Sarasota’s great estates. Discover the perfect blend of elegance and privacy on this 1.6-acre estate nestled within Cherokee Park, one of the most sought-after mainland neighborhoods in Sarasota. Tucked away on a small street at the end of Southwest Drive, this double lot estate is in a beautiful setting unlike any other property along the Bayfront. With its traditional architectural style and gated entry, this home offers a serene haven away from the world. An unprecedented secret lies at your rear doorstep—an extraordinary boat basin along the bay front, dredged to accommodate most any boat. For water enthusiasts, this is a dream come true with two boat lifts (10,000 lb. and 16,000 lb. capacities). Your sanctuary is set back from the shoreline, ensuring complete seclusion and uninterrupted peace as you revel in the tranquil surroundings. A masterpiece by design, this architectural gem was designed by the esteemed architect, Clifford Scholtz and brought to life by the renowned Rich Perrone of Perrone Construction. Every detail reflects their commitment to quality and craftsmanship. Step inside to a meticulously planned layout, featuring a great floor plan with an elaborate primary suite and exercise room located on the main level. For those who love to entertain, the party-scale media room is the ultimate experience complete with a bar and multiple TVs for the sports enthusiast. Five-bedroom suites await your personal touch. This home also includes a Mahogany wood paneled office, a formal dining room, and a captivating saltwater fish tank that serves as the focal point of the kitchen and breakfast room. Covered patios and loggias extend from the most major rooms, creating ideal space for relaxation and enjoyment. A detached oversized 3 car garage with a covered walkway to the main residence has excessive space for storage or workshop activity. Step into the expanded screened outdoor room, complete with double TVs and the largest Wolf outdoor gas grill available and a Subzero refrigerator. The Chicago brick flooring adds style and durability. The free form dream pool, paved in Chicago brick, is a haven for leisure and outdoor entertainment. Subdivide the lot for an additional building lot that has it’s own private gated entry in place or use a portion of the expansive lot to build your guest house, tennis court, or pickleball court – the possibilities are endless. The home is equipped with a brand-new whole house generator. Specimen trees, lush landscaping, and ancient oaks frame the home, creating a stunning natural backdrop for your daily life. Your dream home awaits, a harmonious blend of luxury and practicality. Don’t miss the opportunity to make it yours. Schedule your viewing today and step into a world of timeless elegance and exceptional living.
