This rare 1.53-acre lot with 100 feet of direct Gulf frontage is framed by breathtaking views of the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico nestled by grand oaks and lush tropical landscape that takes you back in time. Truly one of the last large and deep estate-sized lot options to custom build your own glorious haven on the water are endless. Preservationists - own a piece of history: a marvelous mid-century modern residence designed by one of Sarasota’s most influential and prolific architects, Tim Seibert exists on the property that you can bring to its original glory. Features of this property include a jetted seawall wonderful for fishing, a Thomas Jefferson inspired serpentine brick wall that wraps around the property for tranquility and privacy, a greenhouse, lap pool, large looking pond, gardens and expansive trellis with glorious white and lavender wisteria. There is also a charming guesthouse with a private deck overlooking the flora canopy below. Siesta Key is a barrier island off the southwest coast of the U.S. state of Florida with the No. 1 beach (named the nation’s best twice) known for its brilliant quartz sand, turquoise waters and an eclectic blend of culture, dining and a wide array of shopping. Build your dream home here - don’t let this iconic, rare site get away.
