Property Description
Soaring above the shoreline within The Beach Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota, this penthouse residence is enviably positioned to showcase a breathtaking panorama across the azure Gulf of Mexico, Bay and glittering city skyline. Available for the first time to a new owner, the 3,872 sq. ft. beach retreat is configured in a split style with four bedrooms, three full baths, a gracious powder room and featuring a two car garage. You'll feel as if you are perched on the bow of a ship as you look out to the endless Gulf view, which accents the classically detailed living room, deluxe chef's kitchen and casual dining space. Versatile and elegant, the floor plan features a generous formal dining area that could create the ideal home
study. Guests will relish their private accommodations, each opening to a Bayfront terrace overlooking exotic mangroves. The master suite affords every luxury with its dual walk-in closets, ultra-glamorous bath and of course, splendid seascape view. Step out to your Gulf-front balcony to soak in sunset views, all while preparing alfresco hors d'oeuvres from the grill area. First class services and incomparable amenities of the legendary Ritz-Carlton include 24-hour security, a grand social room, professionally-equipped fitness center, Gulf-front pool and spa, and more.
