Extraordinarily rare opportunity to own a modern masterpiece regarded as Florida’s most architecturally significant home. Completed in 2001, this stunning postmodern-style home was designed and built by the renowned architect Don Chapell as his personal residence. Creating a notable and secure compound, wraparound wings surround a landscaped courtyard that joins the primary living space, nestled along the serene Pansy Bayou. The pristine deck and large private lap pool have been thoughtfully positioned for comfort, sited perfectly for morning coffee or gathering with friends as the moon begins to rise. The home is ideally situated in the architecturally distinguished Lido Shores community, with deeded beach access, walking distance of St. Armands Circle and minutes to downtown Sarasota. Spanning more than 6,800 interior square feet, the design of the home is both whimsical and refined, showcasing the eclectic palette and materials of postmodernism, with an interplay of light and shadow that transforms each space, hour by hour. The scale and layout offer luxurious accommodations, with six bedrooms including two owners’ suites, six full and two half bathrooms, abundant storage and safe room. The central living space offers breathtaking views of the native landscape and the open bayou with soaring 17-foot ceilings and two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows that maximize sightlines and the home’s shimmering natural light. Spanning the central living space, a catwalk bridges the second stories of the adjacent living wings. The primary owners’ suite encompasses an enclosed bedroom with private balconies offering long-range water views, a large wardrobe, sprawling spa bath with separate water closet, extra-long vanity, and a separate shower room with soaker tub. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the shower open to a private bayou-facing balcony, the perfect place to start your day with resident dolphins, manatees and shore birds. Adjacent is a light-filled, oversized en suite office with gently curving walls, volume ceiling, hospitality area and a private, secure entrance that can be accessed from the entry courtyard. A separate wing features a cozy nursery connected to a second owners’ suite, an additional bedroom, fanciful full bath and inspiring lounge and game room. Just beyond is an oversized guest or staff quarters with sitting and hospitality areas, full bath, and its own direct access from the entry courtyard. Postmodern hallmarks include original poured terrazzo floors with imported Murano glass accents, multihued surfaces and varied elevations. Every artistic feature is an intentional showcase of the museum quality of the home. Integrated custom-curated cabinetry and built-ins enhance the home’s masterful design to emphasize the architecture and natural surroundings. Functional amenities include garage space for three vehicles, a dedicated laundry room with Bosch appliances and a storage room with outdoor access. Furnishings are available by separate offer. On the market for only the second time, the Chapell House offers both unparalleled architectural prestige and luxurious livability in a coveted location known for its natural beauty and close-knit community. The flexibility and privacy of each unique living space make this home perfect for an extended family, visiting guests and work-from-home convenience.
