This incomparable Gulf Front estate lot boasts 200′ of Gulf of Mexico/beach frontage encompassing an amazing 2.25 acres on prized Longboat Key.

The parcel was the only one for sale with this width and depth between Anna Maria and Manasota Key. The size and two-lot configuration provide the new owner many options including building  their new Gulf Front residence and guest home using the entire property, or to build on one lot and hold the other as an investment. This size property will allow the new owners to consider a tennis court, tropical gardens, a spectacular waterfront pool with expansive terraces, all while enjoying extraordinary privacy.

My selling clients received a full-price contract for the property.  The sale at $6,000,000 represents the largest recorded sale in the region for a vacant Gulf Front parcel since 2004.  In announcing the sale, Michael Saunders, my company’s founder and CEO, was quoted as saying, “This is yet another signal that buyers of significant means are not only finding our market and discovering its lifestyle potential, but are also taking definite steps to acquire luxury homes and properties throughout the region.”  She goes on to say, “Parcels of this size that inhabit premier Gulf-front locations are an increasingly rare commodity throughout Southwest Florida, much less on Longboat Key.”

Congratulations to my selling clients and to the buyers.  We eagerly look forward to following the process as the site plan and residence are designed and the estate developed.
