Siesta Key island beach house with dock and boat mooring on the Gulf. Handsomely detailed home presents a sophisticated ambiance that elevates the relaxed, seaside setting. Mindfully restored and renovated inside and out in 2016, this coastal retreat has historic character invigorated by up-to-date home systems and technology. Landscaped for complete seclusion, the 1.25-acre estate comes with all the amenities to enjoy Siesta Key’s sun and fun: heated pool/spa, patio with grilling kitchen, dock/fishing pier, boat mooring and white sand beach. Included are a SeaDoo jet ski, four-wheeler, two paddle boards, two bicycles and two kayaks with beach trolley. At the heart of this captivating home is the great room/kitchen area — a big, giant room where everyone can cook, eat, watch TV, play games and relax together. The kitchen’s solid-oak countertops add a rustic touch to the otherwise clean and simple space. High-end Miele appliances include induction cooktop, convection oven, microwave, steam-combination oven and side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. When you’re ready to get away from it all, a very private and quiet master retreat pampers the restful side of life and features Gulf-view balcony with glass railing. Additional sleeping quarters include two bedroom suites and two bedrooms that share a bath. A separate, air-conditioned recreation building provides storage for all your outdoor toys. It has wiring for a wall-mounted smart TV and space for casual seating and table games. Life is good on the beach.
