Waterfront splendor meets elegance and grandeur in this four-bedroom home in Bradenton, Florida where beautiful south-facing views of downtown Sarasota, the Ringling Bridge, Lido and Longboat Keys are showcased from nearly every room.

Step inside where open spaces accommodate relaxation and entertaining with equal parts finesse. The gourmet kitchen has  Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Miele appliances, plenty of counter space, and sparkling granite surfaces. A wet bar and 600-bottle wine cellar enhance the entertaining experience. There’s a space for every convenience including an office, media room, private elevator, laundry room, and mud room.

The sumptuous master suite overlooks the Bay with sliding glass doors that disappear and connect with the private viewing terrace while a fireplace gives it an elemental ambiance.

The views take on a new level of magnitude in the winter months when white pelicans who have migrated south take up residence behind the house. The waterfront resort-style pool area is enhanced with a heated saltwater pool and spa and coveted green space.

The home has private boat dockage with electricity, running water, and a boat lift. This four-bedroom estate is listed for $1.995 million with Michael Saunders & Company, an affiliate of Luxury Portfolio International®.
