Beachfront Home on the Gulf of Mexico Designed by Guy Peterson

Location: Sarasota, Florida

Price: $14,500,000

Designed by lauded local architect Guy Peterson, this beachfront home has a thing for bold colors and unique features. Fronted by the Gulf of Mexico and Heron Lagoon, the 7,700-square-foot modern is just steps from the water in either direction and took four painstaking years to design and construct, with final completion in 2000. After 11 years amid the concrete, neon, and glass brick, those owners are looking to move on, but is this house too unique to find a buyer with the stratospheric price tag of $14,500,000? Not if the varied amenities have anything to say about it. The swimming pool is large enough to accomodate a game of waterpolo -- nevermind that that sport requires 14 players -- as well as lap swimming, and boasts a water slide "purely for the fun of it." A lagoon-side dock, volleyball court, and 1.5 acres of gardens round out this pricey offering.
