Magnificent beachfront Ohana Estate on the Gulf of Mexico could be yours for just $22 million. This new listing on Longboat Key is the most expensive in the area ever put on the market. According to the listing details, the estate – known as the Ohana Retreat which is a reference to the Hawaiian word for “family”, has been under construction for at least three years. “It is a record for Sarasota, but if you compare this quality of land and quality of structures to places like Palm Beach and Naples, it would probably go for $40 million or $50 million there,” said listing agent Deborah Beacham, of Michael Saunders & Co.’s Longboat Key South office.
Set on 2.57 pristine acres, the renovated house and its nearly 7,000-square-foot addition now features nearly 10,000 square feet of living space in three separate pavilions with six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and two-half baths and a separate beachfront guest house.
The three pavilions are set around a free-form swimming pool with a swim-up sun shelf and adjacent, palm-thatched beach pavilion. On the east side of the property, you’ll find a motor court and tennis court. A hardened seawall protects the compound from the Gulf and also provides a measure of privacy.
