Waterfront Land


New Sarasota Bayfront Listing on Market for First Time in 60 Years

22 Jul 2016 Posted by Marcia Salkin in Sarasota Luxury Real Estate, Videos of Sarasota, Waterfront Homes, Waterfront Land, West of the Trail

There’s a certain kind of property that doesn’t come around very often. This is it.

My new listing at 3250 Old Oak Drive is a stunning piece of waterfront property. It’s been owned by one of Sarasota’s oldest families for over 60 years. And now is your chance to make it your own.

One reason it’s a standout? It’s nearly 2.8 acres, and you just don’t see waterfront property that large in today’s market very often.

Listed at $4.5 million, the property offers sweeping views of Sarasota Bay. And the location couldn’t be better in the heart of Sarasota’s sought-after West of the Trail area.

It’s just minutes from downtown shopping and the arts, the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport and Siesta Key. In fact, the North Siesta Key Bridge is just around the corner, giving homeowners and guests easy access to one of the top beaches in the United States.

Another major plus of this property is an amazing sense of privacy. Dense foliage, including specimen plantings and majestic oaks, plus the large size of the lot means you’ll enjoy 360 degrees of privacy, an asset that can be hard to find in Sarasota.

If you’re looking for the perfect property to build your dream house on, look no further. And when it’s complete, there’s also room for a guest house, a pool, a cabana, a tennis court and even a miniature golf course. (I might have gotten carried away with that one, but really, anything is possible on this vast property.)

You just have to see it to believe this property’s possibilities. So grab a chilled glass of sangria (it is summer, after all) and take a peek at the cinema tour. Watching this video is like walking through the property yourself, so you’re in for a treat. Once you’ve seen the tour, don’t delay. This property is going to go fast. But don’t worry – I’ve got my phone right here next to me, waiting for your call.

The Two Top Selling Homes in Sarasota….traditional or contemporary. Which do you prefer?

19 Aug 2014 Posted by Marcia Salkin in Arts and Culture, Gulf front, Luxury Home, Sarasota Luxury Real Estate, Siesta Key, Single Family Home, Waterfront Homes, Waterfront Land

Sarasota ….known for its white sandy beaches, great year-round weather and as Florida’s cultural center.  Sarasota is, also, a ideal backdrop for great residential architecture.  We are still a city fortunate to be home to  original  1920’s Mediterranean gems,  neighborhoods filled with 50’s mid-century modern ranches  and even,  our very own Sarasota  School of Architecture treasures.

So far in 2014, two very distinct and  different architecture styles garnered the highest sales prices in the area.  Both on Siesta Key.  Both beachfront on 1.5+ acres.  Both with over 7,500 sq. ft. of living space.   And, both with manicured grounds and resort-like pool areas.

Sanderling Siesta Key

8250 Sanderling Road on  Siesta Key

8250 Sanderling Road, a stunning contemporary by Guy Peterson Office of Architecture, was originally listed in March 2011 for $14,500,000.  With clean lines, floor- to- ceiling walls of glass and three levels of beachfront terraces, this award-winning  home sold for  $8,850,000.

2300 Higel Avenue on Siesta Key

4300 Higel Avenue on Siesta Key

4300 Higel Avenue, a Beach Manor complete with center hall, symmetry and timeless finishes by  Clifford M.  Scholz Architects, listed in November 2011 and sold within 93% of list price at a record-breaking sales price of $10,250,000.

Two great properties, both listed and sold by Michael Saunders agents and designed by local architecture firms, are fine examples of Sarasota’s diverse styles earning the two top spots for the highest sales so far in Sarasota County 2014.

Warren Buffett and Sarasota Real Estate

01 Sep 2010 Posted by Marcia Salkin in Gulf front, Siesta Key, Waterfront Land

“I would rather buy a great company at a fair price than buy a fair company at a great price”

For over 20 years, Salkin & Soublis have been disciples of this Warren Buffett statement as it pertains to real estate in the Sarasota area.  To buy great real estate in Sarasota, we have always said “buy on the water”!  Even if it’s not the home of your dreams… buy the location.  When the time is right, you then can create your desired environment. 

Twenty years ago, water front property was at the top of the housing pyramid in Sarasota and on the barrier islands and  today, it is still the most sought after property in the area.  So, when you are looking for great property in the Sarasota area, think waterfront.  

Today’s market value for walking beachfront property in Siesta Key’s Sanderling Club is going for $26,000+/- a front foot.  Salkin & Soublis are fortunate to be offering a waterfront property with 150’ across a wide, white beach in The  Sanderling Club for only $22,000 per square front foot.

A great property with a better than fair price.

Warren would be proud.
