Opportunities to own a beautifully designed and carefully crafted home situated on an extraordinary Anna Maria Island bayfront site are rare. Designed by the legendary Emily Anne Smith, this home perfectly captures the joy of living by the water. Like owning an original piece of fine art, you’ll appreciate the thoughtful choices of natural and hand-crafted materials throughout this exceptional home. The first floor was carefully designed to create spaces that cater from the liveliest social gathering to the most relaxing moments of peaceful solitude. Spectacular water views capture the power of the sea to inspire and positively change one’s outlook. The kitchen, dining and living spaces flow together seamlessly with architectural details that will surprise and delight, including hand-crafted copper counters, hand-painted tile, stained glass and more. The living room is filled with natural light by sliding doors overlooking both the bay and private gated courtyard. Imagine enjoying morning coffee on the balcony of the 2nd floor owner’s retreat watching sailboats gently making their way down the intracoastal waterway. The owner’s suite will continue to impress with hand laid wood floors, hand-crafted doors, and amazing views of both Gulf and bay. A short walk across an open deck leads to the guest apartment offering further breathtaking views of both the beach and bay. The fun, third floor “crow’s nest” bedroom will delight the lucky one who gets to sleep there with panoramic water views. This special home is perfectly suited for full-time or seasonal water-front living. It is equipped with a dock, a boat lift and ample mooring for larger vessels providing easy boating access to the intracoastal waterway, Anna Maria Sound, Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The home surrounds a private, gated courtyard with uninterrupted southerly aspect, a pool and two-car garage. For those who desire additional bedrooms, the addition of a third floor over the guest apartment is cost-effective and straightforward, offering the potential for six bedrooms and baths. This location is truly magical... this home is the jewel of the south part of Anna Maria Island… where the bay and beach are just a short block apart. Close to everything being only minutes from the mainland, a 30 min scenic drive to Downtown SRQ and walking distance from Historic Bridge Street and LBK Village yet far enough away to enjoy the quiet peace and serenity of your own private island oasis.
