ANNA MARIA, FL – From the charming island community of Anna Maria comes an extraordinary opportunity to own an iconic ocean-front home known to locals as the “Shell House.”
Located on the northern tip of the island on Bean Point, on one of the Gulf of Mexico’s most beautiful beaches, this palatial property belongs to accomplished wildlife artist Paul Schulz, who has traveled the world to experience the planet’s amazing biodiversity. Much of his artwork graces the 4,169-square-foot mansion and is part of the turnkey furnished package offered for $4.195 million.
Designed by renowned architect Michael Shepherd in 2000, the home was completely renovated and expanded in 2015 with no expense spared. Both the second and third levels feature sprawling balconies with sweeping panoramic views of the water, the beach and the blaze of color that characterizes the Gulf of Mexico’s postcard sunsets.
“Bean Point is known for being one of the most exclusive and scenic beach areas on Anna Maria Island,” said listing agent Cindy Quinn of RE/MAX Alliance Group, “and there are only a few dozen properties lucky enough to call this part of the island home. This place is magical.”
Superior construction, workmanship and finishes are evident throughout the four-bedroom, four-bath home, including travertine and solid-wood floors, a gourmet kitchen with all the expected luxury appliances, hurricane-impact doors and windows, and full house generator. A spacious custom art studio could be used as another living area or media room.
The lower entertainment level features custom pavers, storage and covered parking for six cars. Permitting is in process for a sumptuous saltwater pool and spa. About $150,000 of lush and artistically designed landscaping provides an oasis of privacy throughout the property.
Although seemingly a remote refuge available to a privileged few, the property is close to the intoxicating cocktail of cultural offerings in Manatee and Sarasota counties, including live theatre, opera, ballet, symphony and numerous art galleries. Fine dining, shopping and a wealth of recreational opportunities are minutes away.
The property is located in Manatee County at 799 North Shore Drive, Anna Maria, Florida 34216. For more information, please contact Cindy Quinn at (941) 780-8000 or visit the virtual tour at https://rem.ax/Northshore.
