Styled after the French residences of New Orleans, this magnificent waterfront home aptly named Coucher du Soleil, simply translates as ‘Sunset’. Glorious views of Little Sarasota Bay, Siesta Key, and daily sunsets welcome you from every room of this gated estate. Impeccable craftsmanship and fine details are immediately recognizable from custom African sapele mahogany front doors to the handmade crown moldings and hand-carved fireplace mantel. Exotic sucupira hardwood floors, exquisite lighting fixtures, ceiling fans, stylish hardware, exterior gas lanterns, and an elevator make this home warm, inviting and easily accessible. From the open concept living and dining room, numerous French doors open graciously onto the expansive covered balcony, which is also accessible from the guest suite and solarium, a bonus room that can’t be missed. Adorned with custom shelves the tranquil library is the perfect retreat for reading and relaxing. The master suite encompasses the entire top floor featuring a separate private office, morning kitchen, spacious dressing room and an enviable private balcony with unsurpassed views. The carriage house makes an ideal in-law or guest suite, complete with its very own entrance, kitchen, private bath, and balcony. Create endless outdoor memories on the sprawling verandah overlooking the saltwater pool or cruise out on your boat from the 50-foot dock. The unique features of this home are abundant.
