Nestled near the heart of Downtown Sarasota on Golden Gate Point, Peninsula Sarasota has set a new standard for boutique living on Florida’s Treasure Coast. This distinct community was intentionally designed to cater to an intimate lifestyle, with two mid-rise buildings offering just one or two residences per floor. Homebuyers have been captivated not only by Hoyt Architect’s innovative architectural design and a mosaic of resort-inspired amenities but the secluded setting just a short stroll away from Sarasota’s vibrant waterfront downtown.
With the demolition permits approved, site work is anticipated to begin soon, with vertical construction slated for later this year. As anticipation continues to grow for Peninsula Sarasota, the designers have released new renderings that showcase the plans for the community’s crown jewel- its penthouses. Crowning the top two floors of Peninsula Sarasota, this limited collection of just three penthouses have been designed to the highest standards of quality craftsmanship, with spacious contemporary floorplans and the latest technologies creating a life of pampered luxury. Let’s take a closer look at these gorgeous interiors.
From the moment residents step off their private elevator directly into the foyer, they will be captivated by the water views that surround their residence. Voluminous ceilings and full-height sliding glass windows and doors masterfully frame views of Sarasota Bay and the Downtown Sarasota skyline. The great room’s open-concept layout was designed for entertaining, with a seamless connection of the primary living space, dining room, and kitchen. Exquisitely appointed interiors further enhance the space, including a sophisticated natural color palette, hardwood or large format porcelain flooring, recessed lighting packages, and signature fixtures at the entry and dining room. Homeowners also have the choice within the penthouse to add a feature wall in the living room with a bio-fuel fireplace for another beautiful focal point.
When designing these penthouses, architect and interior designer Marybeth Woods was focused on maximizing the views from every angle. “Sarasota is a cultural diamond in the sand,” shared Woods. “Downtown you have the music, art, waterfront, and outdoor dining. Plus, you have access to beautiful beaches just a stone’s throw away. It’s a great location, and we’re trying to maximize the views to keep the plan as open as possible.”
The highlight of Peninsula Sarasota’s penthouse collection, however, is the outdoor gathering areas designed to provide an inviting indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Each penthouse has access to a private rooftop deck for soaking in the Florida sunshine and enjoying maximized views. To the west, views of Sarasota Bay extend as far as the eye can see and provides a beautiful backdrop for Sarasota’s stunning sunsets. Looking to the east, boats parade across the glistening waterfront into Marina Jack, and the city skyline twinkles in the night sky. A glass-railed terrace on the main floor adds another outdoor space, with built-in outdoor gas grills for al fresco dining.
At the heart of each penthouse is a designer-curated kitchen that is every epicurean’s dream. With stone and soft-wood accent walls to highlight the natural landscape, the kitchen is a beautiful representation of the Sarasota lifestyle. Sleek European-inspired cabinetry, an under-counter wine cooler, a waterfall island that doubles as a breakfast bar and ample storage space create an exceptional setting for family and friends to enjoy. A premier collection of Gaggenau appliances, Rohl plumbing fixtures, and every new technology enhances care and convenience.
Between the dining and living room, residents will find the access point to their own quiet, private retreat. Magnificent floor-to-ceiling windows stream in boundless natural light and ensure residents can enjoy spectacular views any time of day. Residents will enjoy the convenience and ease of a hand-crafted walk-in closet as well as a spa-like bath retreat. A roomy soaking tub, glass-enclosed walk-in shower, premium Quartz countertops, and Waterworks fixtures offer a crisp, white design that is complemented by glistening water views.
Just an elevator ride away, numerous amenity spaces were designed to feature every aspect of relaxed and tranquil living. A resort-style swimming pool and sun deck are perfect for daytime leisure, while the Rooftop Residents’ Lounge welcomes evening gatherings of friends and neighbors. For residents focused on health and wellness, a state-of-the-art Fitness Center features the latest high-tech cardio and strength equipment. Spacious common areas, a wine storage room, and amenity spaces have been designed by the renowned Karen Asprea Studio of New York to create a natural, spa-like sanctuary.
For Karen Asprea, nature was instrumental in the design of Peninsula Sarasota’s amenity spaces. “On Golden Gate, there are views of the ocean, sky, and sand with boats bouncing happily on the water,” shared Asprea. “I find the area to be very peaceful and wanted to capture that with the amenity spaces we are creating.”
Located on Golden Gate Point, Peninsula Sarasota provides a private retreat wrapped in everything residents love about Sarasota. Intimate by design, this 22-acre peninsula jutting into Sarasota Bay is a serene garden-like sanctuary with brick paver streets, rows of palm trees, and friendly neighbors. Just a short stroll away, Sarasota is home to numerous arts and culture exhibitions, including museums, galleries, concert halls, and theaters. Waterfront adventures also abound, with the nearby Hart’s Landing and Marina Jack for boat charters, fishing, kayaking, and paddle boarding throughout Sarasota Bay. Beach lovers cherish Lido Key, world-renowned for its powder-soft white sand. Foodies and fashionistas alike spend the day at St. Armands Circle, filled with boutique shops and five-star dining venues.
