512 Sapphire Drive


Two blocks from the iconic Ringling Museum and Asolo Theatre, in the Sapphire Shores neighborhood, is this unique, welcoming home. Set back on a prime half acre, west of the trail and a mere block from the Sarasota Bay, the lush, custom landscaping invites you up a circular driveway to the covered entrance. Once inside, the foyer opens into a large flexible entertainment space for living and dining. Adjacent is the chef's kitchen with wrap-around granite countertops, stainless steel appliances including a SubZero refrigerator, and tons of storage and display cabinets. A dining area/breakfast nook leads onto a covered lanai replete with a hot tub and generous seating. A cozy family room connects to the garden and the sparkling, heated, newly screened saltwater pool. Completing the first floor are 2 bedrooms (one of them en-suite) both with ample closets, a laundry room and pantry area, a 2nd bathroom with bath/shower and skylight, plus a 3rd bathroom with shower for direct access to the pool. Upstairs is a luxurious main bedroom suite with a seating area, a wall of windows, custom fitted walk-in closet, and a large en-suite bathroom with windows and skylights. There is generous storage and custom window shades throughout the home. The centerpiece of the verdant, spacious, private back garden and gated yard with a fire pit, is a mature, sculptural lychee tree flanked by mango and key lime trees. A two-car garage with storage closets and a 8' x 6' storage shed complete this property. There are also smart-home controls for the SimpliSafe alarm system, exterior cameras, 2-zone HVAC and more. This is truly an entertainer's dream.
