Named “Ohana” after the Hawaiian word for “family” this Gulf Coast home might have you expecting Polynesian-style architecture. However, the home’s resort design style is actually drawn from modern Balinese tastes and was constructed from plans by Sarasota architect Guy Peterson.
Found in Longboat Key, Florida, the compound boasts a large and luxurious private getaway, giving off the presence of a personalized resort. While the home was originally custom designed for the clients, it seems they are already prepared to sell the property, which has been listed at a record breaking price. Breaking local real estate history, the owners are asking $22 million for the spread.
Gulf views and convenient beach access are two major draws to the property, but its resort style-layout also adds appeal. Set beside a white sand private beach, a large thatched-roof family lodge is found between three sleeping pavilions. Hidden behind the main pavilions there lies a circular drive connecting to covered parking and a tennis court. Oh, and did we mention the spread also includes a free-form pool?
