Nestled on a barrier island of unspoiled beaches, Mandalay offers 700 feet of private beachfront and spectacular Gulf of Mexico and sunset vistas. The Mediterranean-influenced residence was designed by a renowned architect and meticulously constructed in 2009. Using only the finest quality materials, the 10,000-square-foot home is richly appointed with barn wood flooring, wood beamed ceilings, three gas fireplaces, beautiful stone, and designer tiling throughout. Numerous balconies capture breathtaking views of the surrounding gulf, while impressive rotunda areas enhance the home's interior grandeur. A gourmet kitchen is well designed with a walk-in refrigerator and eating space for eight, while a spacious dining room is the ideal space for entertaining with seating for 14. A fully equipped bar area is positioned just off the great room. The master bedroom wing offers multiple offices, walk-in closets, and a luxurious bathroom with exquisite views. Guests are ensured every comfort and convenience in guest quarters complete with two bedrooms, a sitting room, breakfast bar, and porch. A spectacular oasis set against the pristine beachfront, the grounds are beautifully landscaped with multiple fountains, lush foliage, and an oversized saltwater pool with a magnificent spillover waterfall. The estate is well suited for large gatherings and events with accommodation for nearly 70 vehicles. Perfectly located on Sanibel Island—a barrier island connected to the mainland by a three-mile causeway on Florida's West Coast—residents may enjoy the island's world-renowned fishing and wildlife, and more than 15 miles of unspoiled beaches and 22 miles of scenic bike trails. Sanibel Island offers the utmost saftey for residents and a top-rated school. Barron's selected the island as one of the 10 Best Places for Second Homes in 2010 and, with no traffic lights and careful land conservation, the picturesque town enjoys a low-key, private atmosphere.
