Longboat Key, FL, April 18, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Floor-to-ceiling murals depict streetscapes of the 1950s Jersey Shore in the 10-car garage of “Bayside Villa,” an exceptional property being offered for sale at 5030 Gulf of Mexico Drive on Longboat Key.
Painted by local artist Lori George, the murals portray the Jersey Shore city of Keansburg, New Jersey, hometown of the late Tony Pompliano, an auto enthusiast who commissioned the delightful works of art. “The murals were taken from old photos, books and Tony’s memory,” said his widow Irene, who has listed the home with Realtor Leslie Sharp of RoseBay International. “They are the places he loved most.”
With an asking price of $5.25 million, Bayside Villa is situated on just under one acre in the middle of Longboat Key. Overlooking serene scenes of manatees playfully cavorting in Sarasota Bay, it is right on the water, giving guests the feeling of being on a ship. Reminiscent of an 18th-century villa in Tuscany, the property includes a main house with 5,126 square feet of air-conditioned space, an expansive pool deck with an outdoor kitchen overlooking the Bay, a dock, and a separate cabana with two dressing areas, one bathroom and the capacity to house an additional four cars.
Entering the walled and gated property, you meander to the main house, which greets you with a fountain featuring an antique centerpiece. The main home includes three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, grand living and family rooms, formal and informal dining, a loft office/library, and a custom gourmet kitchen with sub-zero appliances, furniture-quality cabinetry and Viking gas ranges.
Here you will find the luxury features and appointments you expect in a home of this caliber, and then some, including custom moldings throughout, Jerusalem stone flooring, and a two-story mural by the same artist in the elevator well wall, depicting a whimsical underwater scene.
