Sarasota Collection in Siesta Key and Downtown Sarasota



The Camberdale is a two-story, 4,377-square-foot estate model in Sarasota’s historic South Poinsettia neighborhood. Its location is highly coveted due to its proximity to island living, as well as the mainland’s Zagat-rated restaurants, locally owned boutiques, and performing arts venues. The four bedroom, four bathroom Camberdale features coastal contemporary architecture and fully-furnished interior design by Romanza Interior Design to seamlessly blend the home with its natural surroundings.  Sea-blue painted louvered Bermuda shutters, wood-framed windows with simple grids, and an emphasis on vertical symmetry provides coastal elegance with its refreshing design.  These features earned it the “Best Overall” at the 2018 Parade of Homes, as well as Best Curb Appeal, Best Kitchen, Best Master Suite, Best Floor Plan and Best Architectural Detail.
