This casually elegant waterfront home offers absolutely every amenity a discerning buyer could ask for. Even though it has over 4,000 SF, this custom built Key West-styled home offers many cozy spaces both inside and out for entertaining and relaxing. The oversized gourmet kitchen boasts separate Sub Zero freezer and refrigerator, Wolf gas range with griddle and grill, double ovens, warming drawer, two dishwashers, huge center island, and a dream pantry. The great room and formal dining room are both elegant AND inviting, and the cozy parlor with fireplace is the perfect spot for curling up with a good book or entertaining guests with a glass of wine. Every aspect of this gem shows the owner's attention to detail...8' solid wood doors, deep baseboards and crown mouldings, beautifully paneled office and elevator, wine storage room with wrought iron gates, wet bar, butler's pantry, exercise room, poolside bar and summer kitchen, 3-car garage, and a workshop that would be anyone's dream. The 55+ FT boat slip is directly behind the house and currently has a 12,000 LB lift. Sit on your waterside deck and watch the sun set over the Intracoastal. If it's the beach you love, quaint Cortez is just one mile from Anna Maria Island...have your feet in the sand in just minutes! This designer perfect home has so much to offer you must see it to appreciate it!
