The 5 Most Expensive Homes in Town
Before you bought your Powerball ticket, you made a list of what you’d do with your winnings. (Don’t be shy, we all thought about it.) And what’s at the top of that list? A stunning luxury home in Sarasota.
So now that you’ve hit the jackpot, you have a big decision on your hands. Which fabulous home should you buy? To help with your selection, here are some of the best features of the Top 5 Most Expensive Homes on the market in Sarasota right now.
6633 Gulf of Mexico Drive
The much talked about “Ohana” residence on Longboat Key is listed at $19.9 million, but really, that won’t even put a dent in your new-found fortune. You can boast to your friends that the home was designed by popular Sarasota architect Guy Peterson, known for his modern masterpieces. Sign on the dotted line, and you’ll get six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and 29,710 square feet, plus 2.57 acres on the Gulf of Mexico. Why travel to a Balinese luxury resort when you can have your own? You did win the lottery, after all.
7712 Sanderling Drive
You won’t be bothered by paparazzi trying to snap a photo of the world’s most famous new millionaire if you buy this home, tucked away in Siesta Key’s exclusive Sanderling Club. This uber sexy home is listed for $18 million and is situated on a very private lot stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to Heron Lagoon. With a roomy 23,362 square feet of living and outdoor spaces and a guest house, you’ll have plenty of space for family and entertaining. And what could possibly say, “I won the lottery,” more than an on-ground massage room and a private l abyrinth garden?
1160 N Casey Key Road
As a mega-lottery winner, you really should be living in a home with a name. Consider “Eventide,” a waterfront estate on the north end of Casey Key owned by suspense writer Stephen King. The 22,853-square-foot home has five bedrooms and six full bathrooms. For $14.5 million, you’ll be able to take sunset strolls along a white, sandy beach and keep your yacht on a Blackburn Bay lagoon. And at night, you can tuck in your Lamborghini, McLaren and Tesla for a sweet sleep in your nine-vehicle garage.
7858 Sanderling Road
Another Sanderling Club masterpiece, this home gives the feel of a tranquil Asian retreat. The 9,383-square-foot residence listed at $10.9 million offers plenty of room with five bedrooms and four full bathrooms. You can wander the two-acre grounds and relax as you watch the blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. When family and friends come to stay, they’ll enjoy the two-story guesthouse and the lush Japanese garden, and don’t be surprised if they remark about how cultured you’ve become since winning the lotto.
916 Indian Beach Drive
With this estate, the sky’s the limit. The nearly five-acre property offers 600 feet fronting Sarasota Bay and the opportunity to build a home that meets your exacting standards. Or, if you fancy being a more practical, bohemian millionaire, you can live in the 1935 house on the property indefinitely. But we all know you have sketches of your dream home tucked away in a shoebox under your bed, so feel free to use the existing home as staff quarters. During the construction hubbub, head down the street to the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport and hop on a direct flight to New York, Chicago or Toronto. You might as well jet-set around the world until your mansion is complete.
Are you still having trouble choosing which estate is the best fit for your new lavish lifestyle? Well, here’s some food for thought: Why not buy them all?
