IS GRANITE STILL THE BEST CHOICE FOR KITCHEN COUNTERTOPS?

Tiffany Farrell President

INSIDE

STAFF EDITORIAL Publisher Emily Walsh Executive Editor Kat Hughes Contributor Robert Plunket Design Editor Laura Woodside

Granite is still a great choice, but how will you use your kitchen now and what are future plans are key questions to ask yourself. Is your priority unique design, durability, ease of cleaning or resale value? Only natural stone can give you truly one-of-akind sweeps and patterns. It requires more maintenance than engineered stone (quartz), known for its durability. This Cambria™ below shows one of many special designs quartz offers as an alternative.

The Perfect Setting

HOME RESOURCE GUIDE

A look inside Stephen King’s first Sarasota home.

ROBERT PLUNKET CONTRIBUTING WRITER

M

any homes in Sarasota can lay claim to an important past, but this isolated Longboat Key mansion is in a class by itself. This is where novelist Stephen King first lived when he began to winter in the area. It was here that he got his bearings — and his creativity — back as he recovered from a car crash that almost took his life. And it is here that the seeds were planted for his classic Florida novel “Duma Key.”

Photos courtesy of Coldwell Banker

Top: An imposing modernist structure, the home was rented by King and his wife for three successive winter seasons in the late 1990s. The famously reclusive author then bought a home on Casey Key, where he still lives. Above: An elevated pool and surrounding deck adjoin the living area.

HOME RESOURCE GUIDE You sense you’re somewhere special before you even see the house. Located off an unmarked road that meanders off of Gulf of Mexico Drive, you proceed down an unpaved road, through an abandoned gate, and past 1,000 feet of scrub vegetation. And then suddenly you see it — bold, somewhat boxy, with a simple unadorned forecourt of shell and gravel. You relive that moment when King’s hero Edgar Freemantle first encounters the home he names Big Pink: “I wanted to listen to the house, to see if it had anything to say. I had an idea maybe it did.” King and his wife, Tabitha, first began renting the home in the late 1990s. They came every winter for three years, paying the then-exorbitant rate of $100,000 per season. King quickly fell in love with the place and wanted to buy

Above: Among the home’s more unusual features are two glass enclosed sunrooms on top of each other, which provide an unparalleled vantage point to take in the spectacular views. Right: Set in an isolated forest of mangroves, the house overlooks Sarasota Bay, with a dock for kayaks and canoes.

it, according to the owner, a British businessman. But Tabitha King preferred the more extreme isolation of Casey Key, and that’s where they ended up, in an even larger and more secluded mansion that’s never been seen by the public. Even without its unique literary associations, the mansion on Longboat would be an extraordinary piece of real estate. It is set on 2.5 acres, with an additional 1 acre available for purchase and development, thus creating the possibility of a family compound. The home itself is 6,000 square feet, constructed in 1997 and as solid as a fortress. The scale is extraordinary. The second level functions as the living area, with a space 48 feet long and 15 feet high. Though hyperglamorous, with glass walls and limestone floors, it echoes the famous living room in Big Pink. The view, facing east over the mangroves, reveals virtually nothing of other homes or human habitation. It’s almost primeval in its untouched state. Immediately to the north is a 30-acre nature preserve, adding to the privacy. Looking out over the low tropical vegetation you can’t help but be reminded of the mysterious jungle-like surroundings of “Duma Key,” where ancient secrets lurk. But only when you ascend to the rooftop deck do you get the full effect of the home’s location. It’s the tallest single family home on the key, and the 360-degree view encompasses the gulf, the Skyway, the city skyline — everything. The third level of the home contains four bedrooms, each with its own bath. The master suite features a delightfully incongruous touch — a heart-shaped bathtub. There’s also a glass enclosed sunroom that juts out from the house toward the view.

Photos courtesy of Coldwell Banker

Above: The home is the tallest single-family residence on Longboat Key. A few neighbors are scatted nearby, but the home is oriented for complete privacy. Right: The living room is immense: 48 feet long, with 15-foothigh ceilings. It suggests a similar room described in the fictional house in “Duma Key”: “The second floor was one large room. I liked the emptiness of that room. It called to my imagination.”

But of most interest to literary scholars is the home’s first level. Like many homes on Longboat, it’s designed not as living space — zoning laws requires homes be built a certain height above sea level — but as parking, storage and recreation. Here things are a little different. King, not wanting to be distracted by the home’s spectacular views, did all his writing down here. He set aside one corner of the cavernous space and created an office with two smallish windows looking out at a wall of mangroves, blocking out SEE PAGE 12

Another view of the living room that so inspired King’s creativity. The view is northeastward, over Sarasota Bay.

the world so he could create the books and stories that so enthralled generations of readers. “Duma Key” wasn’t published until 2008, years after King had moved on to Casey Key. But so many of the book’s themes and images can be traced back to Longboat Key: the thrill of a Northerner's first encountering the sunny languid Florida air, the power of the tropics to heal and rejuvenate, and yes, even the mysterious, supernatural elements that are hiding out there, everywhere. At one point in “Duma Key,” Freemantle goes for a walk on the beach with his daughter. “Is this the most beautiful place on earth, Dad?” she asks. “No, but you’re young and

Our Sarasota Collection

The Lido is sharp, clean and unobstructed. Named after the trendy Lido Casino which entertained Sarasota’s society crowd for many years, it shares a cutting edge, modern style.

The Palmer is reminiscent of the days of Bertha Palmer and Sarasota’s beginnings. Spanish Mediterranean architecture and a true, classical style set the tone for a traditional mood.

The Coquina is relaxed, unpretentious and clean. Its transitional style conjures up thoughts of time spent lounging on Sarasota’s beautiful natural beaches.

The Ringling - Considered Sarasota’s founding father, John Ringling brought art and culture to the area. It is only fitting that the Sarasota Collection’s newest

THREE THINGS

Two Bedrooms, Two Baths ROBERT PLUNKET CONTRIBUTING WRITER

T

he two-bedroom, two-bath condo is the bread and butter of Sarasota real estate. We have so many of them, and with good reason. They’re perfect for retired couples and part-time residents. And full timers like them too — with little maintenance to worry about and pleasant — sometimes spectacular — settings, the “2/2” makes an ideal home. There is just enough space for comfortable living, and your community’s recreational amenities usually provide swimming, tennis, and often golf. Let’s take a look at three 2/2’s on the market to get an idea of their infinite variety.

1

LONGBOAT DELUXE

2105 GULF OF MEXICO DRIVE #3105

This 2,234-square-foot apartment is about as elaborate as a 2/2 can get. Originally three bedrooms — it can be converted back — it also has an extra half bath. But what sets it apart is the meticulous renovation and the unique setting. On the ground floor, yet elevated for a spectacular gulf view, there’s a wraparound terrace and a private walk-down to the beach. Inside, everything is sleek and modern, and the well-chosen furnishings are included. The complex, Sunset Beach, is set on six beachfront acres and has a convenient location toward the south end of the key. Priced at $1.79 million.

2 THE PRICE IS RIGHT 5176 MARSH FIELD LANE #87

You can actually get a nice 2/2 for less than $150,000. A good place to start looking is The Meadows, one of the area’s first golf course communities. This Heronmere unit (built in 1981) is more than 1,300 square feet and has been partially updated. The view from the living

room and screened porch is particularly pleasant, out to the golf course and beyond. You don’t have to join the Meadows Country Club, but it has superior facilities, with three 18-hole courses, tennis and social activities. Owners are allowed one small pet, and there is covered parking. Priced at $149,000. For more information call Mackenzie Longueuil of Michael Saunders & Co. at 961-4023.

Your Home Deserves Hunter Douglas

Pressure Washing Gutter Cleaning & Brightening

Hi, I’m Jim. My Dr. Windows story comes from humble lessons. Raised in a modest working class family, I watched my parents work hard to provide a better life for us children. When my grandparents would prepare for visitors at their home, the grandchildren would come over and help do five things that were instilled as “necessary’’ to prepare for company: Iron the tablecloth and linens, wash the car, mow the grass, properly set the table, and wash the windows. Even at a very young age, I learned the pride involved in clean windows.
