A 3,765-square-foot Siesta Key home sold on January 20, 2017 for $2.235 million, the highest-priced residential non waterfront sale for the past year. The three-bedroom, three and a half-bath home is located at 1219 Sharswood Lane, in the exclusive, 14-lot, bayfront community of Spice Bay on the southerly end of Siesta Key. Built in 2010 by Sarasota builder Ryan Perrone, president of Nautilus Homes, and designed by architect Clifford Scholz, the home was the first of the Perrone’s trademarked Jewel Box® homes and captured the 2010 Parade of Homes Winner distinctions in its class for Best Curb Appeal, Best Kitchen, Best Master Suite, Best Architectural Detail, and Best Overall.
Nautilus Homes will break ground in February on a new 4,827-square-foot home at 1214 Sharswood Lane in Spice Bay, directly across the street from this most recent sale. The new model home, called the “Shearwater,” is another Jewel Box® home, also designed by Scholz. The energy-efficient “Shearwater” offers two master suites, four and a half baths, a glass-enclosed wine room, deeded boat dock, an outdoor kitchen, custom mahogany entry door, pool, hot tub, and outdoor fire pit. Listed for $3,095,000, the “Shearwater” is ready for a buyer to join the design process and imprint a personal style on the home before construction begins.
The community of Spice Bay was conceptualized by Perrone Construction, which conceived the subdivision’s design approach around a West Indies lifestyle and architecture. Perrone Construction toured the Caribbean to study and bring to Sarasota a genuine Colonial West Indies style to the subdivision’s features and architecture — everything from the cobblestone roads mimicking those found in old San Juan to the verandas and plantation-style shutters of the homes, to the lush, island-style landscaping. Homes in Spice Bay range from $2-7 million; all homes have dock access and 11 have deeded boat slips.
Nautilus Homes was founded in 2010 by Ryan Perrone, focused on concierge-level, luxury custom home building.
