Car: Recommended

Set on 2 acres of land on a private island, this new home (completed in 2010) has been widely published for its unique and beautiful private setting. Private beach and deep water boat dock at your front door and a heavily forested island with a foot path down the middle length of the island. This home is all about the water and the wildlife that shares the property with you.

Things we all love to do:

Floating

Napping in hammocks under the Palms

Swimming

Discovering the beaches

Exploring the vast sandbar

Sailing

Birding

Fishing

Kayaking

Paddle boarding

Ordering in a private massage

Walking the island

In the evening, the sunsets are amazing and there is plenty to keep you busy – or swing in the hammocks and order Pizza to be delivered to the dock and watch a movie.

There are wonderful local restaurants serving fresh local catch within 2-10 minutes by easy boat ride in protected waters - including several that have tables on the beach!

If you want to venture out further, a 5 minute boat ride and simple 10 mile drive south to St. Armonds Key, Downtown Sarasota, known world wide for fine arts and culture,beaches, museums, botanical gardens, and wonderful restaurants.

Sarasota has a terrific jazz festival, film festival, wine festival, polo season, and many other special annual events.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Your hosts built this dreamy private island getaway within an easy boat ride from their principle home. 'We designed and built our dream home to share with our friends and family and celebrate what is most important in life!' Mr.Ellis is an award-winning luxury home builder in Sarasota, Florida (MyGreenBuildings) and Mrs. Ellis is an RN, active Mom, focused on health and wellness, and a local leader in advocating for animal welfare issues.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
As an avid yachting family, the home was designed like no other to capture views, breezes, and the materials and furnishings used in the home reflect their best memories of yachting throughout New England and the Islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, the San Juan Islands in the Pacific North West, the Caribbean and Bahamas.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view, amenities and the private location is beyond compare. The home is highly sought after and praised for its design, and has been published in 8 different local, regional and national glossy magazines, as well as news-papers and television. The anonymity of our guest list is paramount. Perhaps the most common unique benefit for our guests -- who have included famous actors, athletes and public figures -- has been the absolute privacy of the location, completely disconnected to the rest of the world -- yet still very close to everything with a boat.
