If life is but a dream, this tranquil waterfront retreat on Dream Island Road in coveted north Longboat Key is a dream come true. Enjoy front-row seats to
Longboat Key’s paradisiacal beauty with views of the deep waters of the Intercoastal Waterway, which lead to the sparkling waters of Sarasota Bay and beyond. Here, the waters are alive with manatee and fish; herons and egrets accent the skies; and pleasure boats skim by. This half-acre lushly landscaped property sits on a quiet and secluded street. A leisurely stroll leads to a magnificent stretch of the Gulf of Mexico, with miles of powdery beaches. Or indulge your passion for the life aquatic with a 400-foot private dock and two state-of-the-art 20,000- and 10,000-pound Golden Boat Lifts. Explore the nearby waters—without a bridge in sight.
Inside this 3,312-square-foot, coastal cottage-style home solid oak floors flow seamlessly through an open plan, offering island living at its most elegant. Light-filled and spacious, there’s plenty of room to live, work and entertain. Open the doors to the saltwater pool and spa—and invite the outside in! The cool breezes and glistening waters are refreshing reminders why you chose this very special spot to call your own. The central residence features three bedrooms, with a private master suite, and ample living spaces. The kitchen is a chef’s delight, featuring scrupulous craftsmanship, luxe Carrara marble surfaces, and state-of-the-art appliances, including a Viking stove and Sub-Zero refrigerator. Delight in outdoor entertaining on the spacious patio created with sustainably sourced reclaimed Chicago bricks and featuring a wood-burning fireplace and a kitchen with a Lynx grill and Perlick beverage center.
A detached structure offers even more possibilities. This newly built garçonnière has a one-bedroom suite, a home office, and a fitness/yoga studio. This self-contained living space is ideal for guests — or multi-generational family living.
Another piece de resistance includes a brand new (2023) air-conditioned, two-car garage, designed high enough to accommodate a lift, and featuring solid mahogany doors, a wall of impact windows, deluxe epoxy flooring, and extra space for storage, a workshop—or even an artist’s studio.
Other exquisite details include a turnaround driveway, impact windows, and an energy-proof metal roof. Oh—and did we mention that the home is safely elevated at 11 feet?
From every vantage—inside and outside—this lovely home offers a lifestyle that inspires tranquility. When you can pull yourself away, whether by boat or car, you’re only minutes from world-class dining and shopping, a host of cultural amenities, and nearby barrier islands. Celebrate the natural beauty of Florida as it was truly meant to be experienced in this enchanting coastal estate.
