Welcome to the enchanting world of La Coquille Cottage, an idyllic, romantic residence where Siesta Key meets Nantucket Island. Tucked away on a private lane on a spectacular, canopied 0.83-acre property in the exclusive guard-gated, Gulf-front community of the Sanderling Club. Combining vintage design and the relaxed island lifestyle, this expansive three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath main home with a separate one-bedroom, one-bath guesthouse was designed for entertaining family and friends. Emanating character from the front entry foyer, this open-concept plan features a fireplace in the spacious living room and a dining room that leads to an oversized screened lanai overlooking the pool and Heron Lagoon. The family room flows easily to the spectacular renovated island kitchen, complete with a breakfast area, countertop seating, wood cabinets, quartz countertops, subway tiled backsplash, six-burner gas range, vent hood, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances and a walk-in pantry/laundry room. The spacious master suite features a private terraced garden and hot tub, an en-suite bath and an exhilarating outdoor shower. The guest bedroom also enjoys a private terrace accessed through French doors and easy access to the guest bath. The third bedroom has been converted to a front office with additional access from the bedroom hall. Every room offers sliding walls of glass that open to a screened lanai, terraces and lush gardens, where spectacular staghorn ferns, specimen palms and flowering plants enhance the beautiful grounds. Launch your kayak or paddleboard on the tranquil lagoon to experience the serene surroundings and remarkable wildlife, including numerous fish and bird species. An expansive courtyard connects the main residence and guesthouse, which border the large pool and spa. The guesthouse offers a living room, full bedroom, bath and laundry. Relax and lounge poolside, which also features an outdoor bar for entertaining guests. In the evening, dine alfresco in the charming courtyard enhanced by ivy-covered walls and a majestic oak under the twinkling lights and stars. Additional features include a full-service bar with refrigeration, wood and travertine floors throughout and three-car garage. An island estate such as this is rarely offered. With unrivaled privacy, the Sanderling Club on Siesta Key's coveted Gulf of Mexico coast offers unique architecture on meandering lanes in an Old Florida setting. Community members enjoy activities and social events in a clubhouse designed by famed architect Paul Rudolph, with a large waterfront patio and grilling area with Gulf swimming access, private tennis, pickleball and volleyball courts and playground. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Gulf all day from the historic beach cabanas and clubhouse and savor blazing sunsets each night. A boater’s delight, the community also offers a private bayfront marina with direct sailboat access to Sarasota Bay, Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico. Only minutes to Siesta Key’s crystal quartz sands and Siesta Village for shopping and restaurants. Culturally rich downtown Sarasota restaurants, theater, ballet, opera, museums, galleries and shopping are a short drive away.
