580 Birdie Lane, Longboat Key
A stately, lushly landscaped circular paver drive leads to the double-door entry of this beautiful two-story British West Indies-style waterfront home on South Longboat Key. Fully rebuilt in 2011 to hurricane-grade specifications, including the windows and roof, this residence sparkles with a host of upgrades and top-quality appointments, from the Johnson Texas oak hand-scraped hardwood floors and solid wood doors, to the bathroom marble counters and 10' ceilings. Entertain with ease in the spacious, open living room, which boasts a tray ceiling, gas fireplace, a wall of custom built-ins, an enclosed entertainment center, a wall-mounted TV cleverly set behind a sliding artwork panel, and a wall of pocket sliders leading to the open pool & spa. Adjacent to the living room, the kitchen is both gorgeous and well-equipped, with granite counters, breakfast bar, Brookhaven cabinetry, Viking appliances and an alcove desk. The split bedroom plan affords both privacy and comfort, as the 2 downstairs bedroom suites make a total of 4 BRs, each with its own en-suite bathroom and offers potential for a 1st floor master. The master suite and 5th bedroom is situated upstairs and has walk-in closets, a stepped ceiling, a private balcony and master bath with granite counters, a tub, and glass-enclosed shower and separate office. Enjoy outdoor living at its best, with Sonos speakers, pool & spa with salt filtration and light & heating control system, a summer kitchen, and new seawall and dock with 16,000 lb boat lift.
