Barefoot Elegance

By Ed Bertha

Acqua Vita is as expansive as it is stunning. The estate is entered through a beautiful gated wall designed to complement and enhance the overall feel of the spaces beyond, passing through this structure the home becomes the focus and the surrounding grounds beautifully accent it. As you drive the long paver drive to the home the grounds are highly manicured, a seamless mix of giant old oaks, cedar trees, ferns, lush mature vegetation as well as stately royal palms carefully chosen to compliment a yard that at once seems both natural as well as highly manicured.

The home itself is a nod to the beautiful Palm Beach beachfront estate homes that seem to carry an uncanny sense of barefoot elegance. The true to style architecture is the work of the highly regard-ed architectural firm CMSA and headed by its principal Clifford M. Scholz whom Perrone Construction has worked with for over 32 years out of their 37 years in business. “We have this philosophy that I promote in our company” says Richard Perrone “Start right, stay right. I believe one of the first steps in starting right is choosing the right architect for any given project, we’ve worked with Cliff on many incredible homes, homes that are highly sought after in Sarasota. We work incredibly well with him and he is definitely a guy who just ‘gets it’. Working with them is always a pleasure and this project was especially fun and I think the end product really speaks to the ability and synergy of this team.”

Acqua Vita 5050 Gulf of Mexico Drive represented by Lynne KoyUpon entering through a pair of heavy mahogany entry doors you are immediately struck with the feeling that you’ve entered a very special place. The view is directly through the house to the glis-tening waters of the bay. The foyer is a statement piece, completely panelized up the walls to the second floor, the white paint an excellent contrast to the medium walnut floors. You continue walking through a panelized portal into an atrium, and then a set of galleries, then to a large circular great room with nearly one hundred and eighty degree views of the bay. Terraced outdoor spaces surround the pool and a beautiful pavilion complete with fire pit sits as the most rearward structure on the property, a perfect place to enjoy the evening. There is a large outdoor dining room/living room with adjacent outdoor kitchen.

The master suites is immediately impressive. The second floor of the home is devoted to the master suite which includes its own utility room, office, balconies, sitting room and coffee bar. The bedroom itself is entered through a small vestibule and has an expansive view of the bay through two sets of French doors and a large picture window, in fact the bedroom, office and bathroom all have excellent bay views, you can soak in the tub while enjoying the view. The separate master closets are very large spaces, her closet includes a separate vanity area complete with cabinetry.
