Osprey Landing

Sarasota, FL

Built in 2018

On a site overlooking the widest part of Sarasota Bay, the Osprey Landing house masterfully integrates living space and landscape.  Approaching the house, you cross a forecourt gardenascending a series of terraces to arrive at the front door.   The house is organized as two wings flanking a central living space–a soaring great room with floor to ceiling glass, affording asweeping panorama of Sarasota Bay.  The South wing has the kids’ suite and guest room above garages that face a side street.

The North wing has the master suite including a floating contemplation space that gazes backinto the forecourt garden.  The bay side of the house is a terraced landscape of outdoor living spaces overlooking a vast lawn that slopes down to the water.  The main level has an outdoor kitchen and dining area with retractable screens.  From here, a monumental stair leads down to a multi-level pool with a patio island and fire pit, the upper levels include a balcony off the guest bedroom and a roof terrace. Each outdoor space offers a different perspective on the shoreline and across the bay.

The interior is punctuated by bright colors and vivid patterns in wood and tile that reflect the distinct tastes and personality of the individual family members.  The split-level floor plan maximizes the livable space within the allotted building footprint of this five thousand square foot tropical modern home.
