Finally, a home big enough for the whole family!
Finally, a home big enough for the whole family!
What a beautiful home! Our party consisted of 10 people and all of the kids were able to nestle in their little corner of the home. We ate all of our meals in the home with the exception of one dinner out at the beach. We did not need a single thing except food. We were able to grill outside, make pancakes on the griddle inside, and not have to worry about needing anything. Gary was very responsive to our needs and greeted me at the door upon arrival. He gave me a complete tour of the entire home and its amenities. I could not ask for more! The older children enjoyed the sports "bar" upstairs; watching TV and playing pool. The younger children stayed in the pool all week! The TV came with all of the channels, so there was always something for everyone. The beds were very comfortable and the couches relaxing. I really cannot complain about a single experience our family had in the home. The master bedroom was great, and everyone loved the spa in the tub. The shower was large enough to bathe all of the kids at one time...if you wanted to do that! If you are not a Miami Hurricane fan, you may want to come to grips with that before you enter the top floor! Thanks, Gary for helping make our stay fantastic. You have a terrific home as well as a great family! We enjoyed getting to know them!

Exceptional Home and convenient location
Exceptional Home and convenient location
Superb high end home with great pool and location. Close to beach and golf. Also very safe due to enclosed and guard protected community. Allowed us to stay away from chaos of Siesta beach but close enough to enjoy. Also kids got to enjoy IMG.

About the owner: I have traveled the world and built several healthcare companies but have always come back to Sarasota as my favorite location. Eventually I expect to settle fulltime here but until my other ventures allow that I welcome the opportunity to share my joy of this home and Sarasota and the Southwest Florida coast with appreciative people from throughout the world. My children and grandsons all reside in Sarasota and we spend a great deal of time shooting pool in the great entertainment area or grilling by the pool as we enjoy its fountains and jacuzzi with the backdrop of giant oaks and magnificent golf course. I operate a chain of healthfood stores and am president of a new pharmaceutical company with more patents recently granted than any other which I will be licensing to major drug firms throughout the world. The company as it develops will be based in Sarasota. I am a Pisces and true to my sign I love the water and no place better for swimming, fishing, snorkeling, watching sunsets while dining or winding down or sailing than Sarasota.
Why the Owner Chose Other Sarasota Properties:
In selecting the Mar-A-Lago built by Pruitt, I felt I was buying the best model from the best builder located in the best location. The South's oldest and one of the nations finest golf clubs which is so pristine that it is like living in a magnificent private park with all sorts of beautiful birds and animals from river otters and giant cranes to armadillos and wild turkeys.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The amenities of Mar-A-Lago are many from sophisticated security systems, magnificent pool, tennis courts, great clubhouse with fine dining and of course 'The Founder's Club golf course and biking paths.
