Why Stephen Ellis chose Longboat Key
As an avid yachting family, the home was designed like no other to capture views, breezes, and the materials and furnishings used in the home reflect their best memories of yachting throughout New England and the Islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, the San Juan Islands in the Pacific North West, the Caribbean and Bahamas.
What makes this house unique
The view, amenities and the private location is beyond compare. The home is highly sought after and praised for its design, and has been published in 8 different local, regional and national glossy magazines, as well as news-papers and television. The anonymity of our guest list is paramount. Perhaps the most common unique benefit for our guests -- who have included famous actors, athletes and public figures -- has been the absolute privacy of the location, completely disconnected to the rest of the world -- yet still very close to everything with a boat.
