Tour of the Week: Waterfront luxury on Bird Key

by: Heather Merriman Saba Black Tie Editor

There is no shortage of stunning homes for sale in Sarasota — but newly built, clean designs and outstanding views in a sought after neighborhood might be more difficult to come by. However, real estate agent Roger Pettingell has one listed that is just that.

Located on a secluded harbor between Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, this newly built home in Bird Key captures the essence of waterfront luxury. With a West Indies flair of architecture, the home’s design plays off the views of the outside. The soft colors on the inside work well to take in the vibrant colors of the Old Florida views. 

With a dock that includes a bench seating and lift, the home’s location on the water is picture perfect.
The home, located at 602 S. Owl Drive, was built in 2012 by Murray homes and features more than 5,500 square feet of living space. It is up to date with elevation standards and impact glass.

Along with the unique waterfront location, the home is filled with many unique features.

There was no lack of attention when it came to the detail in the ceilings — tray ceilings are the norm for each room, but more intricate work can be seen in the kitchen and living areas. The arched ceiling in the kitchen features beamed work and the living room features a coffered ceiling. A bedroom upstairs also has a coffered ceiling.

Other unique features include an outdoor shower attached to the master bathroom, mahogany floors, gorgeous lighting and glass tile detail throughout the home.

Priced at $5,295,000. For more information, call Roger Pettingell of Coldwell Banker at 387-1840.
