625 FREELING DR, Sarasota, FL 34242  

This Italian inspired estate, set on ¾ acre of Selby Garden-inspired grounds, recalls a time of relaxed sophistication & cherished privacy. This is an opportunity to own a piece of Sarasota art history on Siesta Key’s Bay Island. The property was formerly owned by Stanislas Kostka, acknowledged as the only living Old Master painter. The house was a creation of his imagination – a terra cotta stuccoed villa, combining the majesty of Palladian classicism with the warmth of a Tuscan country retreat. Delicately painted murals, hand-painted columns & ceiling add to the artistic flair of this grand island home. The stately living room with 20’ ceilings & alluring fireplace looks out over the gardens to the water. A spacious and sumptuous dining room with airy windows and elegant French doors overlook the inviting pool. While it is impressively grand the home maintains an air of quiet conviviality. The master suite is an oasis of calm, with views of the peaceful canal. Two additional en suite bedrooms, as well as a wood paneled study allows room for family & friends. This is the perfect home for lavish entertaining. And for dedicated boaters, the Trex dock with 12,000lb lift, gives you ideal access to the Intracoastal and the Gulf, just moments away. Meander along the winding walk through the gardens to the charming 1058 sq. ft. guest house with private terrace. This entire estate is inspired by artistry and maintained with love – a mixture that will delight the most discerning buyers.
