About 1707 Caribbean Drive

A property such as this does not come onto the market often. A jewel, perfectly located in one of Sarasota's most sought after “West of the Trail” waterfront communities, Coral Cove. Elegant custom waterfront home, with over 5,000 square feet of living space, which was completely rebuilt from the ground up in 1998. You will be surrounded by a gracious and established neighborhood, among some of Sarasota's most valuable, luxurious and sought after waterfront properties. Perfectly sited between 3 bodies of water, this home's unusually high elevation raises it outside of the flood zone so no flood insurance required! Enjoy your own private dock with electric and water, with fabulous long water views. Dolphins and manatees stop by frequently, while hawks, eagles and herons soar. Your boat ride is just 2 minutes to Little Sarasota Bay, with no bridges to bay. An estate sized lot – the largest in all of Coral Cove-- at 26,000 sqft is graced with grand oaks and lush tropical foliage. The neighborhood is a bird sanctuary, filled with heritage trees. Great curb appeal with an expansive circular paver driveway making comings and goings a pleasure, especially nice for receiving family, guests and for entertaining. A colonnaded covered portico leads to a large and convenient double door entry and large foyer beyond. Luxury features include coquina stone columns, 12 and 14 foot ceilings throughout, designer fishbowl and arched windows, real wood bahama shutters, oversized crown and cove moldings, 4 luxury sized bathrooms and multiple grand entertainment spaces. Flexible open floor plan allows for work, play and entertaining options throughout the home. Approximately 80% of the home's space is on the ground floor, while a luxurious private master suite occupies the entire second floor. This grande suite includes a glam spa bathroom, very large walk in closet, plus wonderful views of the pool and waterway. Downstairs offers 3 oversized bedrooms and 3 spacious bathrooms. The glorious great room commands the center of the home, with 3 sets of arched french doors overlooking the resort style pool with pavered patio. Views beyond take in a lush fenced backyard with mango, fig, avocado and banana trees. The smartly designed open kitchen offers the perfect blend of ample storage, planning, cooking and eat in areas. Stainless appliances, expansive granite counters, plus a double walk in pantry will make meal prep a breeze. Enjoy dining at the breakfast counter or expansive eat in area overlooking the pool. The kitchen is conveniently open to a wet bar, family room, and dining room beyond. Storage throughout the home is abundant with walk in closets and light filled large laundry room.
