A full-floor condo with sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico has hit the market for $11.95 million, making it among the priciest homes on the market in Sarasota, Florida. 

The 5,855-square-foot condo, listed earlier this month with Lisa Morris of Douglas Elliman, comprises the 17th floor of Epoch, a luxury residential building completed in 2021. The residence is the second-most expensive completed condo unit on the market in the city, asking a hair less than a $11.975 million four-bedroom duplex.

Morris, who’s friendly with the sellers, said she’s attended several get-togethers in the home. “It’s so incredibly sophisticated and customized,” she said. “It’s just the most comfortable place to be. You don’t want to leave.”

The sellers, Curtis Jordan and Paige Petersen, purchased the Epoch condo in 2021 while it was under construction, and were able to customize the floor plan to their liking. They paid about $7.2 million, according to property records accessed through PropertyShark. 

“There was no expense spared for having the ultimate in convenience and style,” Morris said, adding that the home comes with tech integrations like Lutron automated shades, lighting, and temperature control as well as a built-in sound system and whole-home water filtration.

The perk that Jordan, 73, said he thinks Petersen, 60, will be saddest to leave behind, however, is decidedly low-tech: the dressing room. “My wife had a very large, unique closet to herself, and I have a sufficient closet to myself,” he joked. “I think that’s the thing she’s going to miss the most.”

Jordan and Petersen, 60, are both retired and are moving to a nearby property with a private yard. “To be honest we looked, and have been looking, for seven years,” Jordan said. “But to try to find something that was anywhere near comparable to the condo that we’re in — its level of modern conveniences are just off the chart, from appliances to the music to the internet to every aspect of modern living — it’s hard to find that without having to do a complete renovation.”

For the past two years the couple has been producing a film, titled “Playing Through,’ about Ann Gregory, the first black woman to play in the U.S. Golf Association. 

The condo’s interiors, designed by Judy King Interiors of Princeton, New Jersey, are muted in tone to emphasize the unobstructed views of Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico from the residence’s floor-to-ceiling windows. The furniture layout throughout the living space, which features 12-foot ceilings, thoughtfully allocates distinct areas for relaxing, dining, and conversing, Morris noted.

The kitchen sports bespoke cabinetry by Italian brand Cucine Ricci, quartzite and Caesarstone surfaces, and Gaggenau appliances including a six-burner gas range, double wall ovens, and a wine refrigerator. A wraparound terrace with additional seating and a grill extends the kitchen outdoors.

The owner’s suite includes a dressing room, walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, and access to one of the home’s three sprawling terraces. The home also has three secondary bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a guest beverage station, a powder room and two laundry facilities.

The condo is one of 23 in the building and comes with secured indoor parking for three cars as well as additional storage space. Homeowner perks include Epoch’s on-site wellness center, residents’ club, and 70-foot outdoor pool with a sun deck. 

The building’s location, along the waterfront and just a few blocks from prime downtown Sarasota, is another major perk, Morris said.

“The location is absolutely the very best,” she said. “There’s a couple of options downtown, but this, hands down, is the best for views, strolling, and convenience.”

Sarasota’s luxury housing market has boomed in recent years, though prices have cooled from the mid-pandemic surge. In December, the median luxury listing price in the greater metro area was $3.2 million, down 4.8% from a year earlier, according to the most recent data provided by Realtor.com. Luxury is defined as the top 10% of listings. (Mansion Global is owned by Dow Jones. Both Dow Jones and Realtor.com are owned by News Corp.)
