1081 Bayshore Drive in Englewood FL listed by Peter Laughlin of Premier Sotheby's International

Up for sale is a 1.4-acre estate next to Lemon Bay Preserve with 150 feet of waterfront on the bay. The 8,383-square-foot residence is on the market for $4,995,000. The price includes a brand-new Tahoe T-16 Bowrider Runabout boat with premium options and colors. Peter Laughlin of the Laughlin Group exclusively markets the listing with Premier Sotheby's International Realty's downtown Sarasota office. Additional features of the home can be found here

An elongated paver driveway welcomes guests onto the impressive property. Upon entry, Schoenbek crystal lighting illuminates the grand foyer with 20-foot ceilings. The five-bedroom, five-and-one-half-bath home's expansive floor plan features a glass-filled rear elevation showcasing the estate's panoramic views of the bay. Various gathering areas include a formal living room, a "royal" dining room, family dining, and a family lounge. There is also a home office with an adjoining personal gym. 

The exquisite kitchen delights the inner gourmet with top-of-the-line appliances, a Sub-Zero stainless-steel dual-zone 146-wine-bottle refrigerator, a large multi-purpose island, and an impressive bay view. The second floor is set aside as the family's private retreat with a sumptuous primary suite with a boutique dressing room, three additional bedrooms, two baths, and a game room. The "Cheers" game room features a solid-wood curved bar with brass foot rail and a billiards area with a table, light, and cue rack. Experience the ultimate indoor-outdoor lifestyle with two covered lanais, a sizeable outdoor saltwater pool, a pier, and a lighted dock with a boat lift.

Built to withstand the impacts of storm season, the estate boasts ample safety features. Its base elevation is 14 feet above high tide and constructed with cinder block with reinforced rebar; roof clips triple secured, a 14-ft. x 12-ft. euro-wall glass sliding doors rated for 155 mph wind, and a 1300W dual-fuel generator with two propane tanks. In addition, the property is protected by Manasota Key barrier island and concrete seawall. 


"While this picture-perfect Florida estate is a gift, it is even better with the brand-new boat to park on the lift behind the home. Thanks to its proximity to the adjoining Lemon Bay Preserve, its natural habitat attracts dolphins, other marine life, and bald eagles who soar overhead."
