A one-of-a-kind coastal contemporary residence modeled after a Hamptons estate has entered the market for $8.9 million. Boasting 150 feet of water frontage, the one-acre property is situated on the desirable south end of Siesta Key. Located at 6629 Peacock Road, the home is marketed exclusively by Joel Schemmel of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s downtown Sarasota office.
A portico, grand driveway and manicured lawn welcome guests to a refined retreat that exudes a casual seaside vibe.
Perched on tranquil bay waters, the back of the home is a tropical oasis, while the elegant front entry transports you to another world. From its tumbled travertine tile imported from Turkey to the antique sconces sourced from a Newport, Rhode Island mansion, classic New England style abounds.
Entry through a gallery hallway reveals over 10,000 square feet of interior living space designed with luxurious wood flooring, sumptuous granite, intricate ceilings, custom woodwork and cabinetry.
The gourmet kitchen is heart of the home, styled with six double hung windows overlooking the bay. Crafted with Dutch Made cabinetry, matrix leather granite countertops and three sinks, its collection of top-of-the-line appliances includes four Fisher and Paykel DishDrawers. A walk-in food pantry, separate butler’s pantry and wine closet are an entertainer’s dream.
The private master suite is framed with a planked ceiling that peaks at 30 feet. Five large windows overlook the bay while French doors open to a spacious balcony. A morning bar and his-and-her bathrooms with an adjoining steam shower complete this relaxing retreat. Four additional bedroom suites offer plenty of room for guests, including an in-law suite with sitting room.
An upstairs gallery landing, elevator and dual offices as well as media, craft and exercise rooms are among the additional luxury appointments.
An expansive rooftop terrace with cast stone flooring offers breathtaking bay views. Outdoor living spaces are adorned with an infinity-edge pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, garden and pool baths, as well as multiple terraces and seating areas. A dock with boat lift completes this waterfront living experience.
“Anyone who has traveled through Siesta Key on the Intracoastal will recognize this iconic home. While this property will attract a buyer with an affinity for vacationing on the Cape, it also represents the ultimate Florida lifestyle: A quiet waterfront home that is within walking distance to the beach, minutes to the village and offers quick access on and off the island via the south bridge.”
