As part of the Sotheby’s International Realty network I am very fortunate to often have a front row seat to preview some of the most exceptional homes in the world. As a company, we list some truly remarkable homes and we strive to provide the absolute best white glove service. Likewise, when you list your home with me your home is not just exposed to those within the Boston real estate market, but the world via my network of international affiliates.
In today’s blog post I’m going to showcase some exceptional private gated communities available through my network of affiliates. I hope you enjoy them.

Sarasota, Florida – Stunning modern architectural design and lush natural landscape combine to create this extraordinary waterfront paradise on world-famous Siesta Key. Custom built in 2008 and designed by Mark Sultana, this residence showcases remarkable modern design, state-of-the-art innovation and an exceptional use of materials and finishes. Located on the north end of Siesta Key and deeply set on nearly an acre along Cocoanut Bayou, this gated estate is keenly concealed on all sides. Once beyond the gated entrance, the tropical foliage gives way to a free-standing building with three-car garage and simple guest apartment above which separates the main entrance from the utility entrance of the main home. The natural landscape creates a brilliant contrast to the crisp modern façade where clean lines, dramatic scale and precise balance take form. The interior features two living floors including a wine cellar, home theater, outdoor kitchen and a third-floor rooftop terrace. Each space takes full advantage of both the privacy of the location as well as the remarkable waterfront vistas with the utilization of curved walls of glass and numerous sets of sliding glass doors and transom windows. This Siesta Key estate comes complete with deeded beach access, deep water dockage, two boat lifts, hurricane impact-rated glass, concrete reinforced construction, three-story elevator, Lutron lighting system, central wet/dry vacuum, saltwater pool, whole house water filtration system and commercial-grade terrazzo flooring.
