About our home

Our bright, airy lakefront home with soaring 14 foot ceilings is elegantly but comfortably furnished. Every room, including the guest house, opens to the enclosed, pavered lanai and pool. The living room also opens to the front screened lanai offering spectacular lake and sunset views -- our favorite place for cocktails and dinner.
Our home is located within the gates of private, members only Lakewood Ranch CC (www.lakewoodranchgolf.con ), one of the premier clubs in the Sarasota area with 3 championship golf courses, Har-tru tennis courts, pool, fitness center and stylish clubhouse.
We are minutes from Sarasota (http://www.sarasotafl.org ) with its year round cultural activities -- Sarasota Opera, Sarasota Ballet, Sarasota Symphony, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center (www.vanwezel.org),major museums and several excellent regional theater companies.
Area restaurants are top notch and offer every cuisine imaginable. Shopping is world-class from St Armans's Circle (http://www.starmandscircleassoc.com ) to Ellenton Premium Outlets (http://www.premiumoutlets.com ) to the boutique shops of Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch.
Our beaches are the best in the world – Siesta Key Beach, (http://www.simplysiestakey.com ) 40 acres of white, 99% pure quartz crystal sand (it feels cool on your feet on even the hottest day!), was rated #1 in the US by Dr. Beach this year. But all of our beaches are equally beautifully and each has its own special ambiance. And unlike many coastal areas, public access is the rule.
My friend who visits as often as possible always says on arrival, “Ah, I’m so happy to be back in Paradise!)
We are looking for an exchange in NYC for end of February/early March -- exact dates are negotiable.
