The Banyan Beach House Asks a Breezy $3.6 Million
by Premier Sotheby's International Realty
The Banyan Beach House is a midcentury modern private estate in the esteemed, guard-gated, Gulf-front community of the Sanderling Club on Siesta Key. Spectacularly private and peaceful, the .65-acre grounds of lush, tropical plantings, palms, banyans, and old oaks provide a parklike setting and serene views from every room. This fabulous, beautifully renovated midcentury home embodies the best characteristics of midcentury design and the Sarasota School of Architecture style with modern conveniences.
“This remarkable retreat blends timeless architectural elements with modern conveniences in a truly tranquil setting. The discerning buyer will appreciate its coveted waterfront location and proximity to the world-famous Siesta Key Beach and the restaurants, shops, and lively cultural venues in downtown Sarasota," said Judie Berger of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty.
The expansive four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath residence is ideal for both relaxed living and large-scale hospitality. The private gated entry leads to outdoor gardens with a Zen-like atmosphere; enjoy the koi pond and the sound of rippling water as you approach the front door. Once inside, you’ll appreciate the natural light-filled rooms and walls of glass, bringing the outdoors in. The large light-filled entry foyer leads to the casual, open-concept great room and dining area with a custom-designed glass wine “cellar,” flowing to the sleek designer kitchen which blends seamlessly with the main living space, complete with Bosch appliances, custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, polished geode backsplash, and breakfast bar. The family room and pool bath are steps away.
All rooms open to an oversized screened coral stone-paver lanai area, with an outdoor living and dining room that overlooks the spectacular backyard with a dock on Heron Lagoon and leads to an expansive terrace showcasing a magnificent pool and waterfalls with abundant seating areas and an outdoor kitchen, the perfect place for entertaining and alfresco dining under the stars. A romantic spa with a waterfall is steps from the oversized master suite with its spa-like bath, huge travertine shower, jetted tub, and spacious walk-in closet.
Each of the three guest bedrooms in the split floor plan has wonderfully detailed baths and wings. Additional features of this fine home are volume ceilings and custom lighting. Windows, doors, and skylights have hurricane protection. The included golf cart is perfect for a quick trip to the beach, village stores, and restaurants.
With unrivaled privacy, the Sanderling Club on Siesta Key's coveted Gulf of Mexico coast offers unique architecture on meandering lanes in an Old Florida setting. Community members enjoy activities and social events in a clubhouse designed by famed architect Paul Rudolph, with a large waterfront patio and grilling area with Gulf swimming access, private tennis, pickleball, and volleyball courts, and a playground.
