Spectacular opportunity to build a waterfront home in Sarasota. Here's a 15,000 square foot lot with 81 feet of protected water just off Sarasota Bay. There's a new sea wall higher than code requires with corners projecting ten feet back in to the property along with a new, composite dock. The protected, deep water in this neighborhood makes it the best boating location along Sarasota's north shore which has homes reaching 20 million dollars in value and is anchored by Ca da' Zan, John Ringling's own gilded era mansion. There are no bridges to the bay since you are just 2 homesites away from this boating and fishing paradise. A north side location is also quite near to New Pass which leads to the Gulf of Mexico. This property sits on a peninsula with waterfront homes across the street which means when you build up to code you'll have 360 degree views taking in all of Sarasota Bay, the downtown skyline, Longboat and Lido Key. The existing home is functional but possibly obsolecent given it's age and "on grade" construction. However, many would find it a fine place to reside while making plans for a new, more resilient home designed for the next 100 years. Just minutes from Sarasota's most significant cultural attractions like the Asolo Theater, Ringling Museum of Art and the Sarasota Ballet. 2 miles north of downtown Sarasota, a 12-minute drive to St. Armands Circle and Gulf of Mexico beaches and an equal distance to the University shopping corridor anchored by UTC Mall and Benderson Park.
