A contemporary home designed by modern Sarasota architect Guy Peterson recently sold for $7.48 million, the highest sale in the Longboat-Sarasota area this year.
The 5,039-square-foot house, built in 2001 on 0.31 acres at 1247 Westway Drive, features plenty of outdoor spaces water views of New Pass and the Gulf of Mexico. A front courtyard has a pool with a waterfall, a spa and a shell patio alongside tropical landscaping. A 924-square-foot second-floor terrace overlooks the courtyard. The property is mostly surrounded by an 8-foot-high privacy wall and includes a seawall and dock.
“As fans of the Sarasota School of Architecture and Guy Peterson, we were honored to market this exceptional home,” said Georgina Clamage, of Michael Saunders & Co., who represented the seller with Mary Pat Radford. “The exquisite detail and unique qualities in the home speak to its extraordinary and timeless beauty.”
The home was listed in January for $7.5 million and under contract the same day.
The entrance of the three-bed, three-and-a-half bath home is a 90-foot-long gallery with 8-foot windows into the great room, which features a gas fireplace and views of New Pass. The two-story living room has floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors to the patio and waterfront terrace.
