About 2050 Benjamin Franklin Drive B704

Recently updated by award-winning designer Barbara Gardner (Collins Interiors), this expansive waterfront residence in the sought-after Orchid Beach Club offers three bedrooms each with large all-marble ensuite baths. The spacious private suites are complemented by expansive, regal living space and breathtaking views from three private terraces. The enviable position of this residence in the Gulf-front building showcases endless northwest-facing vistas of the Gulf and shoreline, as well as unobstructed views over Lido Key to Sarasota Bay and the city skyline. Extraordinary details throughout every space create an estate-style sense of opulence in this home. Cove ceilings with inset lighting, crown molding, custom built-in cabinetry recessed with decorative arched alcoves, and wood paneling add elegant warmth to the spacious interior. Through the foyer accessed by private elevator, custom iron filigree doors open to the stately living room, with gleaming marble floors and full height sliding doors that showcase spectacular views beyond the primary terrace where additional lounge and dining areas extend the living space. Arranged for ideal flow, the kitchen overlooks a breakfast nook adjacent to the living room, with additional counter seating and doors that open onto the terrace and grill station. The kitchen features a central island, Bosch double wall ovens, 5-burner Bosch gas stove, Dacor warming drawer, microwave drawer, and paneled refrigerator. Distinguished by its cove ceiling and designer lighting, the dining area seats eight easily, with open sight lines across the living room to the Gulf. Beyond a private vestibule, the owners’ suite enjoys a sitting area, walk-in closet, and private access to a terrace with picture-perfect water views. In the owners’ oversized bathroom, there is a glass-enclosed walk-in shower, soaker tub, water closet with bidet, large vanity and separate makeup vanity, and an adjacent breakfast bar. Each guest suite is a luxurious retreat, with ample room to relax, direct access to terraces, and large bathrooms beautifully finished with marble floors and walls, quartz counters, and premium fixtures. A laundry room with utility sink and ample cupboard space blends style with practical function. Recent comprehensive upgrades include premium Bosch kitchen appliances, quartz countertops, marble floors, fresh paint and designer wall coverings throughout, multi-zone air conditioning with smart home integration, motorized window coverings, new hot water heater, and new DCS gas grill and granite surround on the terrace. Orchid Beach is a fabulously private and well-situated resort-style complex with only 54 homes in two residential buildings surrounded by lush landscaping and securely gated 24/7. World class amenities with exclusivity for residents include doorman and concierge, parking garage, social room with catering kitchen, game room and library, private dog run, heated Gulf-front pool and spa with pool deck and lounge seating, and direct access to the Lido Key’s pristine white sand beach. This pet-friendly community has easy access to St. Armands Circle and is minutes from Downtown, perfectly located for both luxurious beachfront living and the cosmopolitan appeal of Sarasota.
