Located in the heart of Florida’s Cultural Coast, Peninsula Sarasota has set a new standard for boutique living along the waterfront. Homebuyers have been captivated not only by the building’s intimate design with just one or two residences per floor, but also by the secluded setting just a short stroll away from Sarasota’s vibrant waterfront downtown. Now, with vertical construction well underway and the building close to sellout, developer Sam Gault is sharing more about his vision for this coveted Sarasota address.
As president of Gault Family Companies, Sam Gault has extensive expertise in both constructing and delivering high-quality products for homebuyers. The company, headquartered in Westport, Connecticut, boasts a six-generation, 160-year legacy in homebuilding, with a diverse and thriving property portfolio. Let’s meet Sam Gault and hear his perspective on what sets Peninsula Sarasota apart.
“Sarasota bears many similarities to Westport, Connecticut. Both places boast an arts-and-culture-centric lifestyle, but you can also just feel the genuine warmth of their residents. Our team looks forward to building a beautiful new home where people can fully embrace Sarasota’s vibrant surroundings.”
“We like to say that Peninsula Sarasota is a yacht where many of our competitors are cruise ships. With just 22 residences, the building design is unique in that none of our units have shared walls. The A Tower offers one residence per floor with 360-degree views and a living experience similar to a single-family home. The larger tower will have two residences per floor with a service hallway in between them. From our resort-style pool to the state-of-the-art fitness center and club room with private wine storage, every aspect of life was taken into consideration to create homes our owners will be proud of. We have also included a communal rooftop terrace where all owners can go to enjoy the extraordinary views of both Sarasota Bay and the city skyline.”
“Golden Gate Point is a neighborhood of primarily condominiums and a few single-family homes. No commercial businesses are allowed in Golden Gate. As an overlay district to the City of Sarasota, the neighborhood has different building codes. The maximum building height, for example, is 110 feet and the parcel must be at least an acre to allow for the maximum height. The height and density restrictions prevent it from becoming filled with high-rise buildings built closely together. Our owners will enjoy that small neighborhood atmosphere while also being within a short walk to all the restaurants and entertainment available in Downtown Sarasota.”
“We broke ground in late May and our team is currently ahead of schedule! The crane is working on-site, the stem walls are being completed, and the north and south columns are being installed. Our construction progress and overall design have made us very well-received in the Sarasota market. Buyers have shared with me how excited they are to be a part of an intimate building designed to meet their needs and lifestyles. They have been pleased with the sales experience, including the virtual tours to actually “walk” floorplans and see the views. After signing a contract, they work with the Blu Interiors team to choose their finishes from our selection of high-quality appliances and features.”
“Gault Family Companies is known for its high-quality standards and excellent customer service. We insist on both with every project we are involved in. We do this by hiring strong team members who can deliver the product and service that meets our standards. Good communication is essential to success, and we involve all team members in a weekly meeting to review our progress and goals for the coming week. We are confident our owners will be pleased with their homes the moment they walk through the front door.”
Priced from $3.7 million, Peninsula Sarasota is experiencing high demand for its centrally located yet secluded lifestyle.
