Built by WG Mills and designed by the Skirball Group Architects, this five-bedroom, five-full and three-half bath home has been the back drop for many of larger and well publicized Sarasota social events over years yet still maintains a warm and casual feel for the owners.   Starting your mornings out with this view puts you in a great mood 365 days a year.  You could spend the day relaxing pool side and never find a boring moment.  The view from the infinity edge pool to the bay is uninterrupted.  The indoor to outdoor flow is perfect for entertaining or just living day to day.

Contemporary in design, the home makes smart use of the unique south-westerly view of Sarasota Bay and Siesta Key which is seen from the moment you enter through the front door and most other rooms through towering windows.  The effective use of glass helps to keep the home bright and cheery throughout.   Symmetry and balance are the keys to how well this home is laid out and how smart this home flows.

Construction of this home was accomplished by pre-cast concrete slabs which is usually only found in commercial grade buildings.  This method virtually assures an indestructible building and a solid, quite feel throughout.

This sale represents the highest Sarasota mainland sale this year and the second highest sale over the past six months.  Both mainland sales came out of the desirable Harbor Acres and over the past twelve months, nine sales over have been for over $1,000,000 out of the 166 home sites.
