One or more photo(s) has been virtually staged. All great homes start with the right piece of land! Offered here is a vanishing breed on Longboat Key: the rare combination of 3 features: the panorama of Sarasota Bay in front, the embrace of a navigable canal in back and, a short stroll away, deeded private access to the sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Very few such lots exist on Longboat; most are end-lots selling for 25% more. This is an unusual location. For those who tally waterfront linear feet, this one is 100’ of bay frontage plus 100’ of canal frontage. On the ¼ acre lot is a charming 1970s Ruth Richmond home. As the story goes, the prior owner - escaping triple taxation of her residence in Manhattan’s UN Plaza – stopped at the site and reached for her checkbook before even going in the house; “I’ll take it!” That was in 1990. Today, the small house is in need of replacement, and contributes very little to the asking price, which has been independently backed by 2 Longboat Key-savvy well-respected appraisers. With guidance from an architect, you’ll design a waterfront home to your style. (Estimate construction at $400-500/sq. ft.) And, unlike many “waterfront” homes on Longboat, your house faces the open water, not your neighbors. The site is on a private cul-de-sac, serene, quietly spectacular. Your neighbors are the discreetly affluent. If $3 million is a comfortable investment for you – to build your house on this land, contact us for more details.
