DETAILS: This estate, named Tweenwater, rests between Sarasota’s Blackburn Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The entryway features a custom staircase, inspired by the Harvard Club, in New York City, while the formal living room is reminiscent of a British West Indies home.
The spacious kitchen boasts ample cabinetry and flows into the dining and family rooms. A carefully curated selection of antique and new elements combines to create a residence that blends modern luxury with old-world charm.
Designed to take advantage of the cross winds from beach to bay, the screened terraces transition from the interior to the outdoors. Past the infinity-edge pool are boating and kayak lifts, along with 100 feet of private beachfront to the west.
Designed by Herscoe Hajjar Architects and built by The Aerial Companies, the home provides seclusion, and privacy, and views of the water.
The home has masonry walls, Hardie Plank cement board siding, hurricane-rated windows, and doors, and a Kynar metal roof with a solar panel system for energy efficiency.
The entire property is automated with a Crestron smart home system and Lutron lighting, integrated security and a fire detection system.
