Two gulf-front properties on exclusive Siesta Key are coming to auction May 16 – a stunning home covering more than 8,000 square feet and a rare gulf-front lot, the latter of which will sell in an absolute auction without reserve. As the southern-most residence on Siesta Key, the home affords sweeping 270-degree unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico from floor-to-ceiling windows in nearly every room.
“The house borders a protected nature preserve,” explains Thania Kanewske, of Heritage Auctions, “meaning the buyer will enjoy privacy with no neighbors to the south — ever!” Wrap-around balconies ideal for entertaining encircle the exterior and provide additional vantage points for spectacular sunsets over the gulf.
The house contains four bedrooms and seven bathrooms, along with a ground-floor rec room, sauna and elevator. A private, ocean-front pool overlooks the gulf. A deeded dock on Little Sarasota Bay is just steps away, and the home opens directly onto the award-winning beaches of Sarasota County.
The location is a paradise for recreation and relaxation lovers alike, and nearby downtown Sarasota offers easy access to culture and nightlife. Inside the home, thoughtful architectural and design details include a well-appointed chef’s kitchen, art lighting, custom draperies and hand-painted ceilings.
Bidding for the house, which last was listed at $4,490,000, will go under the hammer at Heritage’s private event at 2 p.m., Tuesday, May 16.
An adjacent 140-foot-by-100-foot lot located to the north of the home represents a rare opportunity to own a gulf-front property in this sought-after zip code: It is one of only three currently available on Siesta Key. The lot will sell May 16 separately in an absolute auction with no reserve.
