A stylish and personalized condominium on the fifth floor of the modern Jewel has hit the market for $ 4,149,000 and is offered by Kelly Mooney and Betsy Sublette of Coldwell Banker. With the exception of art, the house is sold turnkey.
The sellers are the original owners and they have a real commitment to the lifestyle and location of the jewelry prior to construction. âSome Sarasota condominiums say they’re in the heart of downtown, but in reality they’re not,â said owner Alex Hahn. âBut the Jewel really is. Located at the corner of Palm Avenue and Main Street, the Jewel is right in the middle of the action and my wife Kathy and I can walk anywhere we want to go and we don’t have to struggle to cross Hwy 41 on foot. . When we come from Ohio, we put the car in the garage and can go weeks without using it. It really is living in an urban neighborhood with all the amenities nearby and more inside the building.
They chose a 4,000 square foot unit on the fifth level. âOur address says Unit 401, but it’s actually on the fifth level of the tower,â Hahn continued. âThe fifth level was as high as my wife was ready to go and it turned out to be perfect. Our water and city views are ideal and we have two private decks.
While the apartment was at the project stage, the Hahns made changes to suit their needs. âWe have enlarged the living room and added a separate and comfortable dining area next to the kitchen which is in addition to the larger formal dining area,â explained the owner. The walk-in closets are personalized and the apartment itself is equipped with smart home technology, which means blinds, lights and everything in between can be controlled remotely. âWe also decided to go for high quality finishes and appliances since we are Florida residents and this would be our home year round, although we would continue to spend summers at our place of business. ‘Ohio.”
With the floor plan adjusted, the couple enlisted interior designer Robin Azevedo from Robb & Stucky to plan the space and help select custom furniture to complement the architecture, views and height. under the ceiling of their modern and spacious apartment.
The Hahn residence has three bedrooms and three bathrooms and a shower room. The public portion of the apartment is arranged in an open concept floor plan. Walls of glass wrap around both sides of the apartment’s living room providing maximum natural light and unparalleled postcard views of Sarasota Bay and the Gulf beyond. The floors are wide planked wood.
The modern upscale style kitchen is done in soothing sophisticated neutral tones with solid wood cabinetry and cream colored quartz countertops. Some appliances are hidden behind cabinets for a seamless look. There is a central island with a stove and a long peninsula that serves as a dining bar. Double ovens are on a shared wall with floor-to-ceiling cabinets. A transitional space between the living room and the kitchen is devoted to a generous beverage bar with an under counter refrigerator and wine cooling unit. Next to the kitchen is the custom dining area the Hahns added to the floor plan and down the hall is a lovely oversized utility room done in shades of sand and shiny copper. The room includes a color-coordinated side-by-side washer and dryer, two upper cabinet walls, a long counter with storage below and a sink.
The master bedroom suite has an L-shaped glass wall for maximum view, fitted carpeted floors and adjoining walk-in closets with counters, dressers, closed and open storage and space that makes each area a walk-in closet as as well as a closet. The very large private bathroom has long countertops, double sinks, a spacious walk-in shower and a separate bathtub. One of the three bedrooms is currently used as an office. The additional large den has access to one of the terraces and this modular room could also serve as additional sleeping space.
The Jewel was built in 2016 and has 19 units ranging in size from approximately 1,900 square feet to 4,000. Modernist in architecture, the building is 236 feet tall. The residents’ amenity floor features a 20-meter infinity pool, fitness center, lounge with bar, steam room, sauna, putting green and pickleball court. Two garage spaces are allocated to each apartment. The building accepts pets, but each of the maximum two pets must weigh less than 35 pounds.
The Hahns loved every day they spent at the Jewel in their personalized apartment, but now they want to try a new lifestyle. They will be spending the rest of the summer and early fall at their vacation home in Avon Lake, Ohio, while they consider options. A new condominium in Sarasota is certainly a possibility, but a residence in Naples could also be a contender.
