Mourning Dove, a soaring sunny-yellow villa with amazing crystal-blue bay and Gulf waters—and elite entrée to the Ritz-Carlton, the beach, and Sarasota’s tony downtown—is one of Florida’s West Coast showpieces. Artfully designed by architect Clifford Scholz with a total 8,598 square feet, it presents a marvel of majestic formal and informal waterfront settings. A maple library, sleek white kitchen clad with calacatta marble, and view-filled master suite with marble bath and terrace also adorn the main floor. Above are a generous upper gathering room, second bayfront master suite, and three additional bedroom suites. For outdoor romance, twin travertine terraces beset with a swimming pool and spa welcome beside the 42-foot deepwater dock.
