Get ready to step inside the most opulent estate we've seen in recent memory, perched on 300-feet of private beachfront in Siesta Key, Florida. Listed with Joel Schemmel of Premier Sotheby's International Realty's Sarasota, 8218 Sanderling Road is located in the exclusive Sanderling Club community and boasts over 8,600 interior square-feet with a separate guest house.

Newly renovated, no detail was overlooked with updates including an all-new kitchen, bathrooms, engineered walnut and large-format marble flooring, custom millwork, an elevator, gated entry, and Smart Home automation, among other standout features.

"The current owners have taken one of the most incredible properties on Siesta Key and reimagined a stunning yet casual beach house. From the direct beach frontage and breathtaking views to the array of updated amenities, this is a rare opportunity to own a private tropical getaway," said Schemmel of the over-the-top home. Whether it's a pool, private clay tennis court, a sprawling outdoor living area, custom closets, a secluded main bedroom level with a waterfront terrace, or simply fantastic views of those unbeatable Gulf sunsets, this property has got you covered.
