The incomparable Casa della Fontana…The Fountain House

749 Freeling Dr. sits along 125′ of Siesta Key’s Riviera. It can accommodate up to a 60′ yacht in this protected, deep-water basin with direct access to the Intracoastal and Gulf of Mexico. This gated, European styled mansion is built like a fortress, lavished with the highest end finishes, and equipped with state-of-the-art systems.

The property recently underwent a major renovation. The original kitchen was gutted to make way for the Mediterranean-style kitchen with top-of-the-line Wolff, Sub-Zero, and Miele appliances, high-end quartzite counters, and a coffered ceiling. The center of this home was converted into a one-of-a-kind great room and alder-wood library reminiscent of famous English manors. On one side, the gallery soars from floor to ceiling, and on the other side, a cozy loft library/study frames the space. Custom trestles, designed to create a rustic feel, replaced the original plain ones, and the Vasquez Forge in Tampa crafted the custom iron railings. Ceiling beams were installed throughout the house and lanai to tie in the majestic aesthetic.

A new HVAC and duct systems (there are four total systems with six zones), Rinnai tankless water heater, Control 4 home automation, Cloplay Proseries hurricane garage doors (3-Cars), removable hurricane curtains, and a whole-house Generac generator (powered by natural gas) were installed. The summer kitchen was also created, and the entire lanai deck and driveway were resurfaced with beautiful stonework and pavers. The waterfront was improved with a 10,000 lb boat lift, underwater lights, and a kayak lift. There is even a secret staircase created to access the gallery and disguised storage areas for your valuables.

The layout of this estate permits multiple generations to live comfortably, enjoying plenty of common spaces. There is an entire guest wing with separate entry to the property. This estate is an entertainer’s dream. The courtyard alone accommodates up to 20 cars. There are over 1000 square feet of outdoor space around the heated pool and spa. The screened-in, two-story lanai lets you open all the doors and sliders on both the ground and main living level to enjoy the Florida indoor/outdoor living experience. There is an expansive media and game room complete with pool table and darts. The home was custom built by Magnum Builders. The commercial-grade construction is of the absolute highest caliber featuring 75+ concrete pilings beneath the foundation that are tied to special footers reinforced with concrete and steel. A barrel tiled, two-piece roof has trusses incorporating embedded straps.

The house includes an Inclinator Residential Elevator. For those that want the ultimate boating lifestyle, you are literally moments away from the beautiful Intracoastal waters and bay estuary that is a habitat for dolphins and manatees. You are less than a nautical mile away from Big Pass, the gateway from Sarasota Bay to the open water of the Gulf of Mexico where you can anchor on the local sandbar and take in the dramatic sunsets. There are numerous restaurants directly accessible by boat. It is an easy bike ride to Siesta Key Village. All this while being within minutes from the world-famous Siesta Key beach, and the arts, culture, and entertainment that defines Sarasota.
