Three listings certified as luxury homes

Exquisite estate in Lakewood Ranch to northern edge Longboat Key home

REALTALK™ #185
REALTALK™ #185 - We discussed the beginning of the 2018-19 peak season and introduced one of three properties highlighted in this REALTALK™ last week.

We are certainly feeling peak season as snowbirds are returning, homes are listed and contracts are being written for home purchases. Our inventory variety has increased to include homes from nearly $8 million to residences that would make fine rental properties on the Gulf of Mexico. I listed three homes last week that qualify for the Global Luxury brand of Coldwell Banker, highlighted here in this Home Showcase XXIX article.


Look at what is offered for the most expensive home in Lakewood Ranch

16416 Baycross Drive
Lakewood Ranch - 16416 Baycross Drive

The first is a grand estate in The Lake Club of Lakewood Ranch, and is a private playground for adults in an opulent setting of luxury. Built in 2015, this home for sale at 16416 Baycross Drive offers an immaculate lifestyle, including its own professionally designed five-hole golf course, 1/8 mile running track, tennis court, basketball court, gym, motor courtyard, car museum, billiards and media rooms, plus a 1,000-bottle wine cellar. If that isn’t enough for an active lifestyle, it includes a brick pavered 35-foot high protected lanai, with cabana, summer kitchen and bar, fireplace, designer pool and raised spa. This is the most expensive home in Lakewood Ranch, deservedly so with all its features and Lake Club amenities. It is listed at $7,995,000.


Rare nearly one-acre property with home overlooking Sarasota Bay

1509 South Lodge Drive
Cherokee Park - 1509 South Lodge Drive

The spectacular location of this waterfront home in Cherokee Park is a rarity. There is an aspect at this designer residence for the entire family to enjoy at 1509 South Lodge Drive. This home listed at $4,995,000 rests on nearly one-acre of property overlooking Sarasota Bay with views that stretch to John Ringling Bridge and the twinkling lights of downtown. Completely renovated inside and out in 2011, this 4BR plus family and media rooms layout offers custom finishes including tongue-and-groove ceilings with expose beams, Travertine and wood flooring, gourmet kitchen, designer fixtures and much more. A heated swimming pool, spa and sunbathing areas are only steps away from the dock and lifts on sailboat waters.


Panoramic views from the northern edge of Longboat Key in Lands End

749 Lands End Drive
Lands End - 749 Lands End Drive on Longboat Key

I discussed how our October with season has started in my REALTALK #185 video last week and introduced the third home on this list at 749 Lands End Drive, on the northern edge of Longboat Key in the Village community. The contemporary design and secluded location of this direct bayfront residence creates an ideal, move-in ready environment. 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, listed at $1,995,000. You will love the view of the Longboat Pass bridge, Anna Maria Island and panoramic water views.

I listed three other residences last week with water views that I will showcase in future articles. If you are looking for an ideal location in downtown Sarasota call us about 888 Boulevard of the Arts, #506. Within a short walk to downtown and Marina Jack from Golden Gate Point, the residence No. 11 in Harbor House is nearly brand new with its upgrades. The third has gorgeous beach-to-bay views from the seventh floor in the Beaches community on Longboat Key.
