OPULENT 4,000+ SQUARE FOOT WATERFRONT ESTATE! Situated directly on Palma Sola Bay, this graceful mansion indulges a luxurious lifestyle. Its private grounds highlight an impressive waterside setting. Behind double leaded glass front doors, a stately formal foyer presents a lavish 3 bedroom, 4.5 bath residence with a den/study. Within its interior, only the finest of fixtures and finishes are appropriate; wall-to-wall handcrafted woodworking, double crown moldings, designer ceiling hues, venetian plaster walls (imported from Firenze Italy), plantation shutters, recessed and accent lighting, architectural inspired windows and doors, plus polished-crushed Jerusalem stone floors set on the diagonal. A quintet of sliding doors set the stage with water vistas in the living room. Formal entertainment extends into the adjacent dining room. Nearby, the gourmet kitchen has pocket doors that discreetly maintain decorum as the guests enjoy the fruits of its labor. Brimming with top-of-the-line amenities like robust granite surfaces, furniture quality cabinetry with custom details, contrasting built-in storage, a divided apron sink, a patterned hand-set backsplash, and a walk-in pantry. There is a useful wet bar with a second smaller apron sink and display shelving. The center-island has a cooktop, storage, and bar seating. All state-of-the-art appliances remain and include a double oven and cabinetry paneled dishwasher and refrigerator. The stained-glass clerestory window is the flourish that caps off the space. Two sets of aquarium glass windows look out over the water views and allow natural lighting to cascade into the kitchen and informal dining area. Combined with the family room featuring a marble encased, gas fireplace. French doors open to the lanai and double doors close off the bayside den/study with its own paver patio. Conveniently close is a guest bath with access to the pool. A secondary en suite has a garden view behind French doors. Attached is a three-piece washroom and a large walk-in dressing room. The well-appointed laundry room, with entry into the 2-car garage, completes this side of the home. The opposite wing boasts a huge private Owner’s suite with a sitting area overlooking the water vistas. Matching fabrics cascade behind the furnishings and frame the windows. Double doors give way to a corridor with a walk-in closet, a secondary closet, and the distinctive bath. Boasting brass fixtures, dual sinks, solid surfaces, etched glass partitions, a lavatory equipped with a bidet, a claw foot tub, and a zero-entry walk-in shower. A hardwood staircase leads to the second level, also with wood floors that flow gracefully into another comfortable and private primary suite with a bath. Outdoor entertaining begins on the columned veranda with a screen enclosure extending over the heated saltwater pool and spa. Over a half an acre of pristine bay front is manicured expertly for a park-like setting that coexists with a natural habitat recognized for manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, wading birds, fish, and other wildlife. Palma Sola means solitary palm. A single ancient palm tree, still standing today at Holmes Beach, gives way to the designation of these bay waters by Sailors looking for the horizon of Anna Maria Island. The small embayment in West Bradenton opens to Anna Maria Sound. The fishing community of Cortez is just southwest, and Manatee County’s Robinson Preserve is to the north.
