A rare offering - the Banyan Beach House, 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. 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 which 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 own spa-like bath, huge travertine shower, jetted tub and spacious walk-in closet. Each of the three guest bedrooms in the split floor plan have wonderfully detailed baths and their own wing. 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 playground. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Gulf all day from the historic beach cabanas and clubhouse, and savor blazing sunsets each night. A boater’s delight, the community also offers a private bayfront marina with direct sailboat access to Sarasota Bay, Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico. Only minutes to Siesta Key’s crystal quartz sands and Siesta Village for shopping and restaurants. Culturally rich downtown Sarasota restaurants, theater, ballet, opera, museums, galleries and shopping are a short drive away.
