Guitar-Shaped Pool Centerpiece of Bradenton, FL Home

It’s not every day you see a home with a guitar-shaped pool, but we got tipped off to one in Bradenton, FL, that is listed for $1.25 million.

Located at 6176 9th Ave Circle, NE, Bradenton, FL 34212, this unique home was conceived by and built for Aaron Dorfman, an insurance company owner and amateur musician who once visited a rock star’s home in Bel Air, CA, that had a pool in the shape of a guitar. He was so enthralled with the guitar-shaped pool idea that he built his own in 2004.

Aaron and his son, Nicholas, also a guitarist, once jammed with Sarasota resident Dickie Betts of the Allman Brothers. But, now that his son is in college, Aaron feels it’s time to downsize.

The 5,108 square-foot mansion contains four bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms as well as a theater room, game room and two wet bars. In case the weather drops below sixty degrees, the home also has two dual-sided fireplaces; one between the master bedroom and bathroom, the other between the dining and living rooms.

Soaring, 24-foot ceilings (photo above) in the family room provide lots of Florida sunshine and the floors are made from bamboo and pecan. The home is located on a one-acre site, next to the Manatee River and with direct access to the Gulf.

I’m not sure about you, but as a failed guitarist myself, I kind of love this pool.
