Gerdes Construction, Lunardi Architecture Set to Reinvent Siesta Key Modern

(SARASOTA, FL) — If your idea of a dream home on Siesta Key involves the Mediterranean-style architecture that has become such a ubiquitous part of the island’s landscape over the past 20 years, then you can probably stop reading now because this listing is unlikely to be of interest to you.

But if your pulse quickens at the thought of a truly contemporary oasis more modern in design and amenities than anything the key has seen in years, then read on because contractor Gerdes Construction, architect Leonardo Lunardi and interior designer Cheryl Gaddie are soon set to break ground on a new house that is sure to whet your appetite.


Located at 641 Beach Road, just north of Siesta Beach, this spacious three-story features more than 3,000 SF under air, including 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths and two half baths, a sumptuous third-floor master suite and bath, a magnificent chef’s kitchen, large 2-car garage, and open air patios with water views on both the second and third floors. But what really takes your breath away is the 1,100 SF rooftop outdoor living space. Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico from this spacious deck and its built-in grill, it’s hard to remember that just a few stories below bicyclists and cars are making their way to and from the beach.

“Leonardo Lunardi, Cheryl Gaddie and I wanted to build something thoroughly modern,” says Daniel Gerdes, president of Gerdes Construction, which has established itself as one of the area’s premier high-end residential and commercial builders. “But once we got started with drawings, we decided to really kick it up a notch. This is going to be something more contemporary than Siesta Key has seen in quite some time.”

Of course, the price of luxury is sophisticated as well, in this case $3.0 million. But Gerdes says that it is well worth it for a modern work of art that sits on one of the last remaining undeveloped parcels along Beach Road.

Gerdes plans to apply for permit within the coming weeks, but he emphasized that there is still time for potential buyers to be involved in shaping the space to meet their own needs.
