SOLD & CLOSED
8347 Midnight Pass Rd enjoys 100′ of shoreline on south Siesta Key and its location puts you less than 1 mile from Turtle Beach and only 3 miles from world-famous Siesta Key Beach. Three magnificent levels, accessible by elevator, provide both formal and casual-living spaces designed to present the best of the coastal Southwest Florida lifestyle, with spectacular views from practically every window.
Extending from the shoreline lined with regal palms and mangroves is a kayak launch, a private dock with composite decking and electric/water, and a boat lift, offering quick bay access.
Supreme ambiance and spaces for outdoor entertaining abound; saltwater pool and spa, luxurious appointments throughout, a gourmet kitchen with premium appliances…this luxury bayfront home truly offers it all.
Pulling off the south end of Midnight Pass Rd onto the long pavered driveway, guarded by a private iron gate, worldly cares are carried away as if caught by the salt-tinged sea breeze wafting through the lush, well-kept tropical landscaping surrounding the property.
A 6-car garage and huge driveway provide plenty of parking – and it will be appreciated – as this home is perfect for entertaining friends, family and distinguished guests.
Inside, on the ground floor, 500+ sq ft of space for entertaining and fitness await, which can be used to suit various purposes, with a full bath and a dry cedar sauna included. An elevator here serves all three living levels. The main home’s first level also includes a two-story staircase, breakfast area, one en-suite guest bedroom, guest and pool bathroom, laundry room, and storage.
A flight of steps up from the parking area and ground floor leads to the formal front entry, on the second floor, with its custom, ornate, iron door and transom.
Through the formal entry lies the dining room with custom built-ins and living room, floored impeccably with Travertine and well-shaded with premium plantation shutters here and throughout. Floor-to-ceiling windows with picturesque panoramic views of Little Sarasota Bay immediately capture the eye and beckon guests inside. Overhead are coffered ceilings and chandeliers, and a stunning fireplace rising 21′ high and finished in imported Turkish stone is impossible to miss. A wet bar stands ready to help get the party started, and an iron door nearby leads to a 343+ bottle humidity-controlled wine closet.
The well-appointed gourmet kitchen has Viking appliances, a 6-burner gas cooktop and a built-in Miele coffee system.
And the perfect way to bring the outdoors inside for entertaining, the family room’s double pocket corner doors open to the expansive wrap-around Travertine-tiled terrace, complete with a new summer kitchen providing an Alfresco gas grill, Marvel refrigerator, and sustainable PVC composite cabinetry.
A luxurious, private, office space accented by custom built-ins and a desk, provides charming views of the water. But perhaps the best spot in the entire home, an oasis of serenity, might be found in the executive suite, lying behind 8’ tall double doors of solid wood. Featuring impressive walk-in custom closets and views of the sunrise from a private sitting area, this dazzling en-suite showcases a spacious double vanity, sunken jacuzzi tub, and a marvelous picture window adorning the double shower that floods the space in bright, natural light.
The third floor, encompassed by a custom wrought iron railing and floored in rich hardwood, comes with a fully-equipped theater room, wet bar, two en-suite guest bedrooms, and a bonus loft space with access to the mezzanine with spectacular views.
Ready to work on your tan? Head outside to the choice spot to soak up those endless days of Southwest Florida sunshine – the tanning deck -overlooking a covered entertaining area and the heated saltwater pool and spa, which boasts an amazing grotto and sheer descent water feature.
