Property Description

Welcome to Villa Fortaleza, a name that reflects the strength and character of this elegant residence located on one of the most desirable streets on Bird Key. With 100-foot frontage on the first deep-water canal from the open waters of Sarasota Bay, this impressive property with a boat dock and lift appeals to boating enthusiasts and connoisseurs. The expansive doorway opens to a gloriously large courtyard that links the 3-bed/3-bath plus den/office main house to La Casita, a uniquely separate guest accommodation with its own ensuite bathroom and breakfast bar. The open floor plan allows for stylish entertaining with dazzling water views visible through the wall of French doors connecting to the Florentine marble pool area and sweeping balustrade terrace. The designer kitchen includes a new top-of-the-line Wolf cooktop coveted by the most expert Cordon Bleu chef. The luxurious Master Suite features an amazing custom walk-in closet and exquisite ensuite bathroom. In 1996 La Casita was added with the enclosed courtyard including a new roof on the whole residence. The air conditioning system was installed in 2017. The island of Bird Key between downtown Sarasota and St. Armands Circle comprises a sought-after neighborhood of 500 custom homes and the Bird Key Yacht Club.
