Property Details

5257 CAPE LEYTE WAY, Sarasota, Florida 34242 - A mid-century masterclass in modern architecture is now available on Siesta Key. This Ralph Twitchell-esque designed property spans half-an-acre with 144 ft. of calm canal frontage, integrating fluently with its sub-tropical setting minutes from Siesta Key Beach. Honest in silhouette and style, the home encompasses almost 4,000 square feet of casual living space across one level, with 2002-2003 additions and updates to the office, master suite and pool area by Architect Terry Osborne. Four bedrooms and the signature office (which can double as a fifth bedroom) establish the flexibility for multi-generational living in this smart one-level floor plan. Sporting vast expanses of glass, clerestory windows, gallery walls, exposed beams and flowing ceramic tile floors, there is no shortage of natural light and architectural character. High ceilings up to 14'. The oversized master suite is a retreat in every sense, incorporating an enormous walk-in closet, an oversized sitting room, updated marble bath with walk-in shower and jetted tub, plus expertly built-in drawers/storage. A smooth transition from indoors to out makes it easy to experience the infinity pool and private boat dock. The koi pond and exotic landscaping blend beautifully with this tranquil environment. This enchanting island community is merely minutes from Siesta Beach, while the mainland can be reached across either of the two bridges.
