Situated on Cherokee Drive, perhaps the most coveted address in Sarasota on a gracious and grand parcel, this home was designed and constructed by two of Sarasota’s most revered and talented professionals. The flawless, clean design of award-winning architect, Guy Peterson, is paired with the incomparable quality, rarely seen in residential construction, carefully and thoughtfully achieved by Pat Ball. Not only was no expense spared in the creation of this home, but the subtle tastefulness of its owners is apparent throughout. Cypress accent ceilings juxtaposed with santos mahogany wood floors, custom maple cabinetry, and board on board architectural molded concrete accent walls strike a natural harmonious balance with a sleek modern aesthetic. The intelligent U-shaped floor plan wraps itself around and perfectly frames the focal point of Petersons’ composition, a 45’ long, crystal clear swimming pool with spa. The green barrier surrounding the home creates the ultimate setting for tranquility and privacy. A stone pathway cuts a striking geometric pattern through the perfectly manicured front lawn up to the custom-made mahogany front door. Crossing the threshold, you enter a wide open living space that features a formal dining room and living room complete with a wood burning fireplace. The kitchen is impressively equipped with a Wolf double electric oven, six burner gas cooktop, Sub-zero refrigerator and ample storage. Floor to ceiling impact rated Marvin windows, transoms, and double doors allow natural light to pour in and creates a free-flowing indoor to outdoor entertainment space. The west wing of the home encompasses the spacious owner’s suite, as well as an executive scaled office. The walls of glass in the owner’s suite create a warm and inviting environment as you gaze out over the tranquil grounds. The east wing encompasses two en-suite guest rooms, both of which have their own private pool access through large sliding glass doors. The separate 500 sq ft guest cabana features a spacious living area, kitchenette and full en-suite bedroom. This peaceful, picturesque Cherokee Park neighborhood is well sought after for its beautiful oak-tree lined streets and the idyllic family friendly lifestyle. The neighborhood has an active voluntary Homeowners Association which organizes neighborhood social events during holidays and throughout the year. However, the biggest draw for this incredible community is its unparalleled location. It’s walking distance to the prestigious Southside School, minutes to Southside Village and downtown Sarasota, and only 5 streets from the North bridge to the world-famous white sands of Siesta Key Beach.
