"Sanderling Retreat" This spectacular estate in Sanderling Club features incredible views from almost every room with natural light pouring in through the many expansive windows in both the main house and guest house. Heron lagoon sweeps across the entire back of the 1.69 acres and twists along the northern property line. Here you will find room to add a dock between the beautiful mangroves. The deep, lush foliage provides privacy for the entire grounds and separates the main house from the guest house. A delightful walking trail running along the lagoon, hidden orchids and bromeliads, numerous interesting plants, staghorn ferns, fruit trees including tangelo, lemon, lime, mango, apple, avocado, and banana, an abundance of blackberry bushes, an irrigation system, and a lovely antique brick courtyard in front of the main house all combine to reveal a true oasis. The main house is 3,485 square feet under air with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. It features a study, enchanting sunroom, formal living room with wood burning fireplace, separate formal dining room, and a great room that boasts vaulted ceilings and another beautiful wood burning fireplace. The great room opens to the breakfast room and kitchen, which features a large island, breakfast bar, pantry and ample storage and counter space. There is an additional refrigerator located in the “mud room” entering into the garage, just off the kitchen. The spacious master suite opens to a vast private screened deck. The spa-like master bath showcases a two-person shower with floor to ceiling glass walls highlighting the unique, incredible views of the lagoon, flora, fauna, and unusual species of birds that love to perch along the deck railings. Beautiful hardwood flooring covers most of the home, with ceramic tile in the great room and bathrooms, vinyl tile in the massage room and garage entry. Inside the attached garage you will find a laundry room, storage room, a garden/tool room, and a generator which is available for purchase separately. One guest bedroom is currently carpeted but conceals hardwood underneath that has potential for restoration. Two large wood decks off the living and family rooms provide long, magnificent views across the lagoon where the stunning Siesta Key sunrises and sunsets can best be viewed. The charming guest cottage is located on the east side of the property and also boasts magnificent views of the lagoon and landscape. This 1,360 square foot guest house provides 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, kitchen, hardwood flooring throughout the main living space, carpeting in both bedrooms, and a deck to enjoy the peaceful setting. This one of a kind home was built by the first president of Sanderling Club as his personal home. Sanderling Club is one of Siesta Key's treasures with a long, rich history. Amenities include a private beach, tennis, volleyball, playground, and the historic clubhouse and cabanas designed by famed architect Paul Rudolph. Boat docks are also available at the marina.
