Lido Shores home buyers are catching wind of Roger Pettingell and his previous listing: an $11M custom home with six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a heated pool—and more. The custom home offers future residents waterfront views, privacy, and an expansive floor plan that both celebrates privacy and embraces all that the close-knit community of Lido Shores has to offer.
The Lido Shores neighborhood is located just outside of downtown Sarasota and boasts easy access to the Rosemary District, Longboat Key, and Bradenton Beach. In addition to enjoying waterfront vistas and a friendly neighborhood setting, residents also get to take in the rich architectural history of the area. Lido Shores began to develop in the 1940s and quickly became home to a regionally-specific, modern style. Designers worked to bring the beauty of the natural area into architecture. Cypress, louvered walls, shutters, and plate glass are all common elements of design in the Lido Shores area.
Lido Shores has no shortage of gorgeous custom homes, but Roger Pettingell and his past listing stand out. The 1313 Westward Drive property boasts 7,300 square feet of luxury. Designed by Adrienne Vittadini and built-in 2005, the home features notes of old-world charm with all the conveniences that home buyers are looking for in today’s competitive real estate market.
Roger Pettingell explains that the home is situated on nearly a half-acre of land. Listed with Coldwell Banker Realty, the waterfront property also includes an elevator and a three-car garage, perfect for homeowners with a penchant for classic cars.
Many areas of the home offer gorgeous views of the Lido Shores waterfront, according to Roger Pettingell. The waterfront area of the home features a saltwater flow from New Pass to the Gulf of Mexico. Lido Shores offers private beach access, where residents can enjoy pavilions and private parking.
Buyers are especially interested in the Sarasota property due to its custom design, offering one-of-a-kind views and features. Vittadini worked to create a “modern-day Venetian villa,” with features that reflect the classic, elegant design of old-world Italy while still incorporating modern-day convenience and innovation.
The property has largely appreciated in value since its last sale, both due to the current real estate market and developments in the Lido Shores area.
In an interview with the Sarasota Herald-Tribute, Roger Pettingell said, “The current owners made it even better by expanding and enhancing it to meet their needs. It is a privilege to be selling such a spectacular residence.”
Residents of the Lido Shores area enjoy easy access to private beaches, but many also enjoy easy deepwater boating access. Whether residents want to spend the day fishing or simply drifting to various areas of Sarasota, life in Lido Shores makes beach living convenient and easy.
