55 Osprey Point Drive, Osprey,
Newly remodeled lakefront home in the Oaks Bayside. Pristine 0.4-acre setting overlooking lakeside peninsula bordered by mature oaks trees. Designed by 20th century architect Bo MacEwen, the home’s clean lines, symmetry and classical style accentuate the elegant Regency architecture. The interior has been remodeled by the owner, a connoisseur of architectural history, to complement the Regency style. The distinctive black and white color palette begins outside with smooth white stucco, two large hand-carved Italian white marble urns, black entry door and black shutters, and is echoed inside with white level-5 interior walls and Italian “Panda Marble” porcelain tile floors. Regal accents include multi-level moldings, wainscots, brushed-gold metal finishes and haute design showpieces. The semi-open concept floorplan is perfect for elegant entertaining and comfortable relaxation. The formal living room, formal dining room and family room are distinctly separate, yet connected by cased openings. The living room features a wood-burning fireplace with floor-to-ceiling Regency mantle and a wet bar with brass French bistro shelving. In the dining room, the pièce de résistance is a vintage 1960s Lucite ribbon chandelier in mint condition -- outta sight! The new kitchen is open to the family room and features a large eat-in island, two closet pantries and a dramatic view of the lake via the oversize windows in the family room. Private quarters include three bedrooms with ensuite baths. The owners’ suite has inspiring views of the lake and a chic ensuite bath with double console sink on Lucite and brushed-gold stand. The Oaks Bayside is a gated community of 135 homes with Little Sarasota Bay on its western shore. The community encompasses a protected eagle preserve and a grand Bayside community dock. Membership at The Oaks Club is available and required. The Oaks Club is an exclusive, member-owned club offering private golf, tennis, fitness, wellness, social and dining. As early Sarasota pioneer Bertha Palmer said when she set foot on this land, “Here is heaven at last!” Detailed feature sheet, video and interactive 3D tour available.
