Survey Says: Privacy is the Ultimate Luxury

The other day I was reading an interesting Business Insider article (“Privacy is becoming the ultimate luxury for wealthy homebuyers”) that talked about a recent survey of the world’s wealthiest people. The Luxury Portfolio International survey asked people this question: “If you were wealthy enough to afford whatever house you wanted, what would be first on your list?” And the most frequent answer to the question was privacy.

Privacy is so sought out by the wealthy that often people purchase the homes on either side of their house and across the street. A home with privacy is a retreat from the busy world outside and a refuge for friends and family members.

One of the Most Private Properties in Sarasota

I’m not exaggerating – my listing at 3250 Old Oak Drive is one of the most private properties in Sarasota.

This waterfront property near the North Siesta Key Bridge is almost three acres, a size practically unheard of these days. The large lot size, plus dense foliage of beautiful oaks and specimen plantings, means you won’t see your neighbors or people driving by to take a look. You’ll just see greenery and a sweeping view of Sarasota Bay.

Now is your chance to snap up this one-of-a-kind ultra-private property that’s been owned by one of Sarasota’s oldest families for over 60 years. Listed at $3.95 million, you really won’t find a more private property in such an ideal location that’s just minutes to downtown, Southside Village and our world-class beaches.

And this property is the perfect place to build your dream house. Don’t settle for a home that’s not quite to your liking – here you can create a custom luxury compound to your exact specifications.

You’ll be hard-pressed to top the privacy and beauty of 3250 Old Oak Drive. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Watch this virtual video tour of the property. It just might inspire you to make this special place your very own.

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.
