Three waterfront homes with private dock

Two global luxury homes on the north end and one in Country Club Shores

These three listings in our Home Showcase XXXV have a lot in common. They are all on Longboat Key, they all have private dock space and they are eligible as a Coldwell Banker Global Luxury home. These homes are marketed to a worldwide audience and appear on the www.ColdwellBankerLuxury.com website.

Highly sought-after community of Country Club Shores

560 Putter Lane
Country Club Shores - 560 Putter Lane

We have highlighted Country Club Shores as a community spotlight in REALTALK™ #188 video and in these REALTALK™ Home Showcase articles. I currently have five of the 27 listings in Country Club Shores. Most homes built in five phases by the Arvida Corporation in the early 1960s are on a canal with direct access to Sarasota Bay, making them highly desirable. And many have been torn down and restructured with modern building codes, including the highest priced home of $3,499,000 at the end of Putter Lane. The lowest priced home of these active listings is $547,000 for an original home built in 1963 on Bogey Lane, a road that runs parallel to Gulf of Mexico Drive and does not have a waterfront presence. These homes are also desirable because the community is close to St. Armands Circle and a short drive to Sarasota.

One of my newest listings last week at 560 Putter Lane is a brand-new four-bedroom home, completed in 2019, and rests on sailboat waters that flow out to Sarasota’s open bayfront. Offering more than 4,300 SF of gorgeous interior, this is the best of waterfront living. Fall in love with the convenience of new construction, featuring new seawall, impact windows/sliders, designer finishes, first-floor master-sized guest suite, second level including family room and expansive master with its own balcony, plus elaborate outdoor entertaining with summer kitchen and fire pit, listed at $2,995,000.

Lands End community on the north shores of Longboat Key

749 Lands End Drive
Lands End - 749 Lands End Drive

The next two communities featured today are on the north end of the island, the first of which is Lands End, featured in REALTALK™ #185 video. The Longboat Pass Bascule Bridge and inlet is a direct sight from homes on Lands End. The azure colored waters and Jewfish Key are spectacular views complement the location. Lands End is also close to the popular Coquina Beach on the other side of the bridge on Anna Maria Island. The newly renovated Mar Vista restaurant is within easy walking distance.

The contemporary design and secluded location of this direct bayfront luxury home creates an ideal, move-in ready environment at 749 Lands End Drive priced at $1,895,000. Surrounded by tropical, Florida-sourced vegetation and located at the end of a private cul-de-sac, every aspect of this elevated home was completely renovated. Beautiful features include exterior Cemplank siding, durable IPE wood decks, plus an upgraded interior featuring Brazilian cherry wood flooring, Andersen impact windows and sliders encased in solid wood, Cypress ceilings and much more.

Manatee County’s Shipmans Add community is a yachtsman’s dream

705 Jungle Queen Way
Shipmans Add - 705 Jungle Queen Way

The luxury homes on Jungle Queen Way in the Shipmans Add neighborhood on the north side of Jungle Queen Way of Longboat Key are secluded with mangroves on the opposite side of the canal. It’s all about privacy. The community of single-family homes started in 2002 with multiple bedrooms are ideal for raising a family in Manatee County. School-aged children start at Anna Maria Elementary, move on to Martha B. King Middle School and complete their public education at Bayshore High School. Saint Stephen’s Episcopal School on Manatee Avenue is an excellent choice for a college preparatory education.

Yachtsmen will love the secluded feeling of this modern, move-in ready boater’s paradise at 705 Jungle Queen Way listed at $1,695,000, with its newer seawall and IPE wood dock, under-dock lights and new 10,000 lb. lift constructed in 2016, is able to accommodate a 22-footer. This newer elevated, four-bedroom home, one of the last built in Shipmans Add finished in 2011 abounds in clean lines, open concept and a neutral decor that perfectly complements the contemporary family’s lifestyle.

I listed 560 Putter Lane, also 1606 North Drive and 4325 Gulf of Mexico Dr, #604 last week, all global luxury homes based on the criteria of Coldwell Banker. Delight in a “West of the Trail” lifestyle at this North Drive six-bedroom custom home in Cherokee Park. On a quiet street near the end of a cul-de-sac, brick pavered walkways and manicured landscaping welcome you. Designer updates adorn every room of this direct Gulf-front penthouse in Tiffany Plaza.
