The 7,752-square-foot property is situated on a secluded island on Little Sarasota Bay, providing would-be residents with both privacy and ample space for entertaining guests. The Flamingo House is currently valued at $22 million.

Having closely followed their client’s requests for a serene retreat that connects residents of the property with the island’s natural beauty, CMSA Architects aimed to evoke the sense of a tropical haven with the home’s terraced floor plan, which creates the illusion of the bay being close enough to touch. The residence’s overall appearance draws inspiration from traditional Balinese architecture with added aspects from the British West Indies, and its direct connection to water is characteristic of the Balinese style, says the firm.
The Flamingo House highlights also include Zen-inspired gardens, koi ponds, a swimming pool with a swim-up bar, and pool decks and pathways intended to appear as if they are floating. Many more water features are interspersed throughout the outdoor living spaces, which are accessible via bridges and stepping stones. The interior of the house is also spacious, with two floors above a ground-level garage and storage areas; the first floor consists of a west-facing mother-in-law’s suite and two south-facing guest suites, while the owner’s suite makes up the entire upper level.
The home was designed to be practical, with the exterior materials, such as the sanded stucco finish and mahogany wood accents, being durable and easy to maintain. The entire house is built on a sturdy foundation of poured concrete and concrete blocks, and the windows and doors are carefully insulated.
