This unique ground floor Rembrandt floor plan residence at Condo on the Bay has three bedrooms with 2-1/2 baths within 2,315sf of living area. Boasting 10' ceilings and a lushly landscaped 1,400+sf terrace overlooking beautiful Sarasota Bay and the Ringling Causeway, the condominium is a rare opportunity to enjoy the lifestyle of a private residence within a larger community. A private entrance adjacent to the gardens connects your private terrace to the heated swimming pool and fitness center. The Rembrandt floor plan is both generous and gracious. Entering the formal foyer delights with a sense of another time and place the colors evoke Tuscan hues, with arched stone doorways and terra cotta flooring that lead to spacious rooms. The overall effect is warm, rich and aristocratic. A gallery leads to the living room with a dramatic bay view and terrace, dining room and living room designed to take advantage of the vistas out to the handsomely landscaped terrace and Sarasota Bay and Ringling Bridge. Located at the southwest corner of the Condo by the Bay community, this home offers the finest views of the bay from either the indoor or outdoor spaces. In addition to gracious living spaces indoors, the homeowner will appreciate the oversized master bedroom suite with Bay view, walk-in closet, ceramic tile master bath with a walk-in tub. The core of the home is the chef's kitchen with large island, solid cypress wood cabinetry, cabinets with the feel of 18th-century English cupboards including beveled glass doors, blue Bahia granite countertops and breakfast alcove. The oversized kitchen is perfect for entertaining with two pass throughs. The two guest bedrooms have been creatively combined to function as the homeowner's office with luxurious black walnut paneling, shelving and elaborate moldings, in which to either accomplish important business activities, write the next great novel, or convert to welcome visitors in a private space with its own adjoining walk-out terrace. The rooms can be separated by a pull-out wall and one of the rooms has a built-in fold out bed. A bonus is that there is no elevator, as this residence is located on the first floor of this Bayfront building so this feels like a single-family home in a condominium community.
