This colorful Contemporary style beach house is located at 8250 Sanderling Road in Sarasota, FL. It was built in 2000 and boasts 7,642 square feet of living space with 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, swimming pool, lush landscaping, 4-car garage and more. It is listed at $14,500,000.

HERE ARE THE LISTING DETAILS:

Architectural Award-winning Beach House. This dramatic sculptural residence is situated in the very private and gated Sanderling Club on Siesta Key. The home turns abstract art into concrete reality. After a four year collaboration, the homeowners and their architect, Guy Peterson, agree that they achieved exactly the modern masterpiece they envisioned. Peterson organized living spaces in color coded “cubes”. The cubes reflect a privacy gradient from public uses to shared spaces to family areas to children’s zone. The home is perfectly designed for its’ beachfront setting with deep overhangs which shade the property from direct sunlight but allow for maximum light and spectacular water views. The home functions like a private family resort with its wonderfully large pool designed to accommodate both water polo games and lap swimming. The pool features a slide purely for the fun of it and an oversized Jacuzzi for relaxing. A fire pit is ideal for evening gatherings and the volley ball court attracts players of all ages. The stunning 1.53 acre site features beautifully landscaped gardens on both the entry side of the residence and the beach side living and entertaining area.

    Hmm…so it’s the house version of Garanimals. I don’t hate it, but I don’t like the color-coded sections on the exterior, or all the raw concrete. The night club style of the interior also doesn’t work for me. OK, maybe I do hate it a little bit. I love most of the art and really wish I could rescue it from this place.

    Disgusting exterior. Interior isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Good luck getting half of the price. Contemporaries don’t do nearly as well in Florida (let alone the west coast) as they do in California or Vegas.

      Don’t mean to start an argument Dan, but I gotta’ ask you…….

      What on earth are you talking about?! Even if the categorical, factual data from Realtor.com or whatever organization were available to prove what style of home has sold the best in Florida, (and it does not), your statement is plain ole’, complete and total conjecture & opinion. Florda is one of the TOP three markets for contemporary simply due to it’s location & weather. California being number one, obviously……but it is inarguable fact that that Florida’s market is extremely popular for contemporary.

        It’s not opinion, it’s fact. If you place a Mediterranean style home next to a contemporary home, and both are the exact same floorplan, size, and on the same sized lot with the same view, the Mediterranean will always sell quicker and for more, UNLESS it is Miami. Miami is the only place I can think of in the state that has an abundance of contemporary architecture, new and old. I think you’re confusing Florida with Miami in terms of contemporary. Outside of Miami, you very rarely see contemporary homes being built, especially on a grand scale (>10K sq ft). The only neighborhood that I can think of that has the majority of contemporary homes is St Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton, and those are 1980s contemporary. However, I can drive you to any neighborhood outside of Miami and prove to you that contemporaries are outnumbered. Sorry Barney, but a whole heck of a lot of people would NEVER consider a contemporary home livable.

        And one thing I would like to point out. If contemporary homes were as popular as you claim they are, how come EVERY single new community is being built in a style other than contemporary? Contemporary homes shouldn’t cost nearly as much to build as Mediterraneans or Bermudas, since they are devoid of ornamentation or kitsch. Why aren’t we seeing cookie-cutter communities full of 2,500-3,500 sq ft contemporaries?

        I suppose I should add Fort Lauderdale as a place with relatively abundant contemporary architecture, though no where as near as Mediterranean. Go on Google Streetview around the Los Olas area if you don’t believe me.

    I’m actually surprised to find myself liking this place. I would’ve thought I’d hate the exterior, but it just sort of seems playful, and fits into the surroundings, oddly. The interior is fascinating in places, not so attractive in others, but overall I’m not really offended. Oddly likable.

    Interesting side-note: the color-coded section above the garages on the exterior of the home seems to have changed between now and whenever the birds-eye-view photography on bing was done. In the listing it’s green, but it appears red on bing.

    I actually like the use of the color and the lighting. It is such a refreshing change from all the heavy overdone houses in Florida. That being said, Sarasota is a horrible town full of fat old rich white men in shorts and bad shirts with mustaches and their plump overdone wives. It is a nasty right wing enclave that gives meaning to the term “Country club Republican” I couldn’t live in Sarasota for 10 minutes.

      PS. Why did Kenny remove all the comments on the Saddle River New Jersey house from a few days ago? Is it because he is friends with the developer? I also noticed that he has blocked comments on that marble monstrosity. Anyone know why? Kenny?

        Yes, it is because I’m now friends with the owner/developer.

      You and I are on the exact sam page, Rob…….I LOVE this house, and everything about it. The exterior color scheme is PERFECT for Florida, and I know exactly what you’re talking about regarding Sarasota………could nnnnnnnnnnnnever live there.

          This should probably stop here. I have a short fuse, and I probably shouldn’t have written it. I found the comment I was replying to offensive and I couldn’t stand to let it go unanswered. It’s probably better that it is erased.

    I think this house is very interesting – someone with a Picasso / Dali / Duchamp frame of reference could definitely live here and enjoy the experience. What it will sell for is not something that I shall comment upon – I simply don’t know Florida. But I do have more than an idea about build quality and the house looks extremely nicely built. An interesting modernist change from the other nice houses on this site!
