Luxury waterfront residences on Longboat Key

by Roger Pettingell

Home Showcase XXXIX: On the beaches

Three rarely available residences on the water as showcase communities

Earlier this month I discussed value properties on the water. To continue with that theme for Home Showcase XXXIX I present three luxury waterfront residences on Longboat Key appropriately priced for their value. They are also in communities where homes are rarely listed, Villa di Lancia, Longboat Key Towers and Tangerine Bay.

2165 Gulf of Mexico Dr #123 - Villa di Lancia

Rarely available, direct Gulf-front residence at Villa di Lancia! With nearly 2,500 SF of living space to love, this sunny beach getaway feels like a single-family residence. Offering great room, eat-in kitchen, split bedroom layout and secure parking.

340 Gulf of Mexico Dr #122A - Tangerine Bay

Tangerine Bay residences don’t come on the market often. Ready for the MLS, this beautifully updated 3BR residence directly overlooks the peaceful waters of Sarasota Bay with a flourish of recent renovations.

Showcase XXV - Global Luxury Homes

by Roger Pettingell

Unique combination of Showcase Homes

Three Coldwell Banker residences in Sarasota, Englewood and Longboat Key

Savoy on Palm in downtown Sarasota
Savoy on Palm - 401 S. Palm Avenue

In our home showcase series, we highlight the communities of three new listings that meet the criteria of the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury brand. These are residences in the Savoy on Palm in downtown Sarasota, Galleons Reach in Englewood and on the Gulf of Mexico in the Sands Point community of Longboat Key. Coldwell Banker has established minimum criteria for its Global Luxury brand based on price and features and posts those residences on the website

I highlighted the Savoy on Palm in my REALTALK™ #164 video. The residences here were designed to replace single-property homes in the heart of downtown. Only 24 homes on 11 stories here create a good sense of close community within a luxury lifestyle. Constructed with the storm-tolerant building codes of 2006, these residences start with several three-bedrooms at 2,975, 3,172 and 3,600 square feet. The two penthouse suites of 4,385 and 5,708 square feet offer a great view of the bay, Ringling Bridge and downtown Sarasota.

Walk through the grand lobby to everything that Sarasota has to offer. It is a short walk to the magnificent Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, where the study of epiphyte plants is known throughout the world. Epiphytes do not rely on soil for its nutrients but rely on other plants or from rain or air in marine environments. In the Burns Court district of Sarasota, the Savoy on Palm is in the center of shopping, fine restaurants and the Burns Court Cinema in the next block. It is a short drive to the theatres and the beaches over the Ringling Bridge. But, if you just want to stay home and relax, you can take advantage of the heated swimming pool or exercise in the fitness center.

The fourth-floor residence I have for sale in #402 is a rarely-available opportunity to enjoy a spacious, 3,600 square-foot layout. The customized three-bedroom floor plan was tweaked during its original construction and offers Travertine flooring throughout, cook’s kitchen and two generous terraces that overlooks the bay and downtown. Perfect for entertaining, the Butler’s pantry, equipped with wet bar and wine cooler, is situated between the formal dining area and eat-in kitchen. The master retreat offers a spa-inspired bathroom, five linear closets each for him and her, plus an additional walk-in closet for her; you will love this impressive space available for $2.3 million.

Englewood, rich exploration of the outdoors

Galleons Reach home for sale, Englewood
Englewood - 6155 Manasota Key Road

We travel to the popular Englewood community on the border of Sarasota and Charlotte counties for our next showcase. The town is on the coast of Lemon Bay and Manasota Key, a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico. Visitors are attracted to Englewood for its many activities, beaches and environment focus. Currently its Pioneer Days are in full swing, with plenty of weekend activities, concluding with its 62nd annual parade Labor Day Weekend, September 3.

Englewood is near the Myakka State Forest, part of the Myakka Estuary Conservation and Recreation Lands, bordering on 2.5 miles of the Myakka River. The forest of 8,592 acres has plenty to offer to the outdoor enthusiast that includes hiking, bicycling, primitive camping and small game hunting. There is plenty of wildlife to search and you may wander upon a bobcat, bald eagle, scarce Florida Scrub Jay or an occasional deer in your path.

The home I have listed in the Galleons Reach community at 6155 Manasota Key Road offers the best of two worlds. You will love the bay and deeded beach access a few feet from the front door of this beautifully private estate listed at $1,695,000. Soaring oak trees and elaborate foliage surround this gated three-bedroom plus office estate. Built by John McIntyre in 2007 boasts superior construction of the highest standards. The two-story interior offers an effortless flow, featuring cathedral ceilings with coffered details, Travertine and Bamboo flooring, two-stop elevator, gourmet kitchen and much more. Take the winding, tree-canopied seashell pathway to enjoy your own dock and lift, including kayak launch, fire pit, fish-cleaning station and tiki bar.
