Property Description

A secluded sanctuary tucked in the heart of Sarasota, this 13-acre, walled and gated estate was originally owned by Mr. and Mrs. Honore Palmer, son of the famous Bertha Palmer. Located just south of Clark Road in central Sarasota, this incredible property was purchased in 1992 by its current owners, who meticulously created a one-of-a-kind compound to raise their family. The grand scale of the property is apparent upon entering the gates, yet once inside, there is a sense of peace and tranquility brought on by the sheer magnitude of the space, the manicured grounds, mature trees and the private lake. The main home is remarkable in its scale yet thoughtfully designed and boasts many extraordinary features, including a two-story grand foyer, formal and informal entertaining spaces, first-floor master wing, an additional six en-suite bedrooms, an impressive game room and a bowling alley. Most of the rooms feature views of the oversized pool area, tennis court and the peaceful grounds that surround this enormous estate. A complete home on its own, the three-bedroom, two-bath guest house includes 1,752 square feet and has its own private entrance but is also accessible from the main house through the bowling alley. There is a three-car garage in the main house, a two-car garage in the guest house and an amazing air-conditioned, stand-alone garage/game room/separate building boasting 3500 square feet of space, creating the ability to house a car collection or any type of toy, including go-karts for the private go-kart track on the property. Enjoy it just the way it is, explore the option of a complete redevelopment or some hybrid option to enjoy part of the property and redevelop the rest. The main house and guest house sit on about 3 acres of the property, leaving approximately 10 acres for redevelopment. The opportunities are endless.
