Featured Home in the Sarasota Keys: The Solymar Encompasses the Sarasota Lifestyle

by Arelys Alexander

London Bay Homes continues to expand their reach in Sarasota with a collection of homes that bring together two key traits homeowners seek in their new homes: luxury and lifestyle.

One of their newest projects is a select waterfront home site currently under construction on Solymar Drive in Siesta Key that features a Big Pass and sunset views.  The new Solymar model home in beautiful Siesta Key provides luxury beachfront living with a private, gated entrance so you can enclose yourself in comfort and exclusivity.  This one-of-a-kind custom home is currently under construction and is one of London Bay Homes’  floor plans in the Sarasota Keys Collection which offers coastal contemporary styling, rich architecture, and high-quality construction.

The new custom estate home features four bedrooms and six-and-one-half bathrooms in more than 6,400 square feet under air throughout its three floors.  The main floor is customized with ease of entertaining in mind and begins with a covered terrace and a vestibule leading to the exquisite great room.  To the right of the great room is the kitchen, dining room, and breakfast nook which extends into the covered terrace.  There is also a bar area with a balcony and an adjacent powder room.

On the other side of the home is a private study, a coffee bar that provides an entrance to a cozy and covered outdoor terrace, and a casita with a covered balcony.  The casita is perfect for housing overnight guests or providing private quarters for your visiting college student or in-laws.

The study, great room, and dining room all open up to the outdoor area, which has the very best Siesta Key offers with magnificent sunset views and the ability to watch as boats peacefully drift through the Big Pass. The grand outdoor area begins with a living room and dining room connecting to two outdoor kitchens and extends to a custom infinity-edge pool that cascades water into a curved shelf and raised spa. London Bay Homes has also incorporated two sitting areas into the design so homeowners and guests can sunbathe, sit and chat in the warmth of our Siesta Key weather, or snuggle up with a great book and a glass of iced tea (or wine depending on your preference).  The outdoor area also connects to the covered terrace that extends from the coffee bar.  If that isn’t enough, the outdoor living area is made complete with a fire pit and sitting area that extends into the pool, leaving you mostly surrounded by the tranquil water.

By taking the elevator or the stairs, homeowners can access the top floor of their custom estate home which includes a cozy loft with a balcony at the front and two bedroom suites, one with a balcony and one with a covered terrace.  The oversized master suite is also on the top floor for added privacy and includes large his and her closets, as well as a dressing area.  Sliding glass doors allow you a private outdoor retreat with a covered terrace and a sun terrace.

The bottom floor in this exquisite home is the perfect place to house your toys and makes the Solymar reach more than 9,000 total square feet.  Making your way through the entry lobby gives you access to the elevator and stairs that lead up to the main floor.  To the left of the lobby is a large storage area and to the right is a four-car garage and a separate storage area for bicycles or garbage cans.  You also have access down a hallway to a bathroom and a door leading out to an outdoor lounge.  The bottom floor is made complete with another one-car garage and two storage areas for kayaks or other water toys because what’s the use of living on a beautiful island if you can’t take advantage of the water surrounding you?

Island living in the Sarasota Keys isn't just about the water, either.  The Sarasota Keys is ideally located with the mainland easily accessible.  Each Key features miles of award-winning beaches, casual and fine dining, and a variety of shopping destinations, as well as easy access to Sarasota’s many urban amenities, including the Theater and Arts District, the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, and the new Mall at University Town Center, among other attractions.

Home to the Siesta Public Beach, named #1 beach in the United States by “Dr. Beach,” Siesta Key is the perfect place to make the most out of your Florida lifestyle.  This 8 mile long, crescent-shaped barrier island features everything from days filled with sand sculpting competitions and Yoga on the beach to nights enchanted with live music and delectable seaside dining.
