Rare opportunity to acquire an esteemed historical estate. Offered for only the third time in its noted history, Casa del Carnevale is an exceptional blend of Old World architectural appeal and luxurious modern appointments perfectly located in the St. Armands division of John Ringling Estates on St. Armands Key. Extraordinary attention-to-detail and craftsmanship guided an extensive renovation, with no expense spared in materials and artisanship. Expanded from 4,000 to almost 10,000 square feet under roof, with over 7,800 square feet of air-conditioned space, Casa del Carnevale retains the warmth of its original style in a layout reconfigured to surpass the standards of modern luxury living. Situated on a generous lot sprawling over 30,000 square feet, the estate features 171 feet of water frontage with a private dock, expansive views of Sarasota Bay, and meticulously designed landscaping that surrounds the home in a tropical oasis. 5 bedrooms and 6-1/2 bathrooms are spread across two spacious levels. Multiple terraces on both levels offer both private retreat and ideal outdoor entertaining space, all enhanced by exquisite water views and the elegant central courtyard and Romanesque pool. 65-foot pool features arched spraying fountains and iridescent glass tile. Three-car garage, elevator, and maid’s quarters ensure premium lifestyle conveniences. Further luxuries include a wine room, billiard room, and arched windows with custom impact glass specially designed for unobstructed views. Kitchen features premium finishes and chef-grade appliances, including Thermador gas range, double ovens, and Sub-Zero refrigerators. Throughout the home, exposed beams, warm wood tones, and natural stone complement custom ironwork and lend an intimate feel to generously apportioned rooms. Interior has been expertly curated with custom tapestry, textile, mosaic, antiques and artwork. Offered fully or partially furnished.
