This is certainly one of the most exclusive homes ever built in University Park. The European owner with long, close personal ties to Asia, built a home reflecting the highest international standards in design and furnishing and with this creating a feeling of being in a very special, unique place. Upon entering the home one will automatically savor the panoramic view allowed by the open design of the living area, the expansive outdoor area and the view of the lake beyond. The combination of selected and custom made European furniture (available under separate contract), like the Italian made dining room chairs, combined with a Chinese designed table are blending well with valuable antiques from Asia. All window treatments were custom made by one of the leading international decorators in Germany. Most light fixtures are original European designed. The master suite is exceptional in size allowing for two double beds, a sitting room with fireplace and view of the lake. The den area has wood floors to harmonize with the built in furniture and the European desk. The kitchen/family room area takes advantage of the view and is close to the outdoor kitchen and sitting area. The garden room area with its glass roof and wall invites for a quiet time to read a book while also enjoying the tropical landscape outside. Three guest quarters on the first and second floor complement this extraordinary home. University Park, located west of I 75 is close to downtown Sarasota and its world famous beaches.
