The Grand Penthouse occupying the two uppermost levels of Sarasota's renowned EPOCH building defies ordinary description. With unrivaled elevation and scale, this residence offers a sense of space and privacy that is unique to the Gulf Coast market. The views from massive private terraces over 200 feet high are absolutely breathtaking and complement the magic of endless panoramic vistas across Sarasota’s coast and city skyline! With approximately 6,000 square feet of interior living space, the Grand Penthouse sprawls with luxurious design. Ceilings extending to 14 feet, amplifying the proportions of each space enhance thoughtful architectural elements that showcase the extraordinary views. Minimalist contemporary design, including open layout, recessed lighting, discreet ventilation, neutral tones, and an incredible brise-soleil that canopies both penthouse terraces and echoes the famed midcentury style of the Sarasota School of Architecture. From the home’s private elevator bank, a wide foyer leads to the open-plan main-floor living area that is surrounded by an expansive terrace with more than 1,900 square feet of additional dining and lounge space. Floor-to-ceiling glass throughout the main space and tempered glass railings outside offer truly unobstructed views in every direction, with nearly 44 feet of unobstructed waterfront views. Adjacent to the dining area and wet bar, the west-facing kitchen encompasses an oversized island, fully equipped butler’s pantry, beverage station, and terrace access through full-height sliders. Imported Italian cabinetry, waterfall Caesarstone countertops and integrated Gaggenau appliances lend minimalist elegance to the design.
