AQUA Two-Story PH Hits Market in Sarasota

A spectacular waterfront residence on Sarasota's Golden Gate Point has entered the market for $13.77 million. Brimming with fine finishes and luxurious appointments, this unique two-story condominium overlooks expansive views of the bay, the Ringling Bridge and the stunning downtown skyline. Located at 280 Golden Gate Point #400 in the highly desirable Guy Peterson-designed Aqua building, the property is marketed exclusively by Lisa Rooks Morris and Amy Drake of Premier Sotheby's International Realty's downtown Sarasota office.

Envisioning a sanctuary that presented a sleek and modern aesthetic, the original owners, an entrepreneurial couple from Manhattan, together with architects and designers, curated a truly custom residence by joining two floors together during the preconstruction phase of the boutique building. Generous living areas, wide water views, soaring ceilings, enchanting rooms made for entertaining and hideaways for restoration and relaxation were paramount during the planning process. Clean and contemporary elements are evident throughout as the owner, a well-known interior designer, desired a space to showcase an extensive art collection. Initially seeking a single-family home, they were drawn to Aqua's glass walls, natural light and expansive outdoor spaces as well as the building's short distance to downtown, the yacht club and the renowned St. Armands Circle.

Upon entry into the 8,000-square-foot four-bedroom, five-and-two-half-bath condominium, an art-inspired sculptural staircase with broad concrete treads, iron rails and walnut accents made in New York and shipped to Sarasota immediately captures one's attention. The first level boasts multiple living and dining areas highlighted by long-range water views. Crafted with every convenience in the preparation of memorable meals, the kitchen was tailored for the inner chef while a 1,200-bottle cellar was custom designed and climate controlled for an extensive French wine collection. An opulent owners' oasis, the second level offers a spa bath, dual offices, fireplace and a yoga/exercise studio. 

The expansive 8,000-square-foot wraparound terrace is one of the largest and most private in downtown, where the residents created a private green space in the sky through a collection of custom planters. Equipped with two boat docks and two private two-car garages for four vehicles, the residence provides all the amenities and services of condominium living and the bonus of storage for a boat, kayaks and treasured vehicles.


"This stylish residence offers a prime, yet secluded location, set apart from downtown's high-density developments. With expansive indoor and outdoor spaces, the two-story condominium lives like a single-family home while providing the convenience of a lock and leave lifestyle. A one-of-a-kind floor plan in an exclusive boutique community, the restaurants, galleries and shops of downtown Sarasota and St. Armands Circle are just a short stroll away."
