Sarasota, Florida, renowned by U.S. News & World Report as a Top 5 Place to Live, is drawing acclaim and residents alike to its unique waterfront downtown. Amidst a surge of residential developments in the area, however, there’s a distinct departure from the ordinary that’s emerging. Unlike the cookie-cutter high-rise condos crowding the downtown region, Peninsula Sarasota just a short stroll away on Golden Gate Point has been praised for its innovative design, offering just one or two residences per floor. Now, with vertical construction well underway, visionary developer Sam Gault has released a new floorplan option that has quickly become the community’s crown jewel.
Aptly named the “Grand Penthouse“, Peninsula Sarasota has combined two of its top-floor residences to create a 7,000-square-foot sanctuary. This three-bedroom, four-bathroom, plus den residence has been designed to the highest standards of quality craftsmanship, with spacious contemporary floorplans and the latest technologies creating a life of pampered luxury. Lets step inside and take a closer look at this one-of-a-kind interior.
As the private elevator opens into the foyer, panoramic water views in every direction immediately captivate, framed by soaring 10′ ceilings and expansive spaces. The Great Room redefines sophisticated entertainment, seamlessly integrating a Bar, Living Room, Dining Room, and Kitchen. The interplay of indoors and outdoors is an architectural marvel, with voluminous ceilings and full-height sliding glass windows connecting the living space to the city’s skyline. Refined interiors showcase a natural color palette, a choice between hardwood and large format porcelain flooring, thoughtfully designed recessed lighting, and signature fixtures. At the heart of the Grand Penthouse is a designer-curated kitchen that is every epicurean’s dream, along with a butler’s pantry/ catering kitchen ideal for entertaining. Sleek European-inspired cabinetry, a wine cooler, an expansive 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.
The highlight of the Grand Penthouse is the outdoor gathering areas designed to provide an inviting indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The penthouse has access to a private 1,200-square-foot rooftop deck for soaking in the Florida sunshine and enjoying maximized views. Gather with friends for a cocktail party and admire the westerly views of the sun setting over Sarasota Bay. Or enjoy easterly views of boats parading across the glistening waterfront into Marina Jack as the city skyline twinkles in the night sky. Three glass-railed terraces spanning 630 total square feet on the main floor add even more outdoor space, with built-in outdoor gas grills for al fresco dining.
Nestled on the north side of the residence, the Owner’s Suite provides an exclusive haven for residents to enjoy. Magnificent floor-to-ceiling windows flood the space with natural light and provide uninterrupted panoramic views throughout the day. Dual walk-in closets cater to fashionistas, providing ample space for organizing an extensive wardrobe. A spa-like Owner’s Bath features a spacious soaking tub, glass-enclosed walk-in shower, premium Quartz countertops and Waterworks features, all set against a pristine white backdrop that harmonizes with the glistening water vistas. Adding to its allure, a 270-square-foot terrace accessible solely to the owners creates an intimate retreat for embracing views of Sarasota Bay with the utmost privacy.
Some of the common spaces within the Grand Penthouse offer duality to its owner. Adjacent to the Owner’s Bedroom, a flex space can be utilized as either an office or a media room, customizable to cater to the individual desires and needs of each owner. Create a professional office setting for working from home or make a relaxing space where families can come together to enjoy some downtime. The Grand Penthouse also includes two more expansive bedrooms for visiting family and friends. Each bedroom enjoys its own spectacular view of Marina Jack, while walk-in closets and spacious bathrooms ensure everyone has a tranquil space to call their own. A fully separated Laundry Room with a full-size washer and dryer and customized storage spaces make even the most tedious task enjoyable.
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.
Peninsula Sarasota’s location on Golden Gate Point 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.
Priced from $3.7 million, Peninsula Sarasota is experiencing high demand for its centrally located yet secluded lifestyle.
