Welcome to the good life! If you don't know, Longboat Key is one of the most exclusive islands in the whole country where many celebrities and public figures call home. This property is 1 of a kind! This is the perfect location on the north end of the island on the bay side within the village next to the new Shore resturant that you may have seen on the hit MTV show Siesta Key. It is nestled in a gated subdivision called Bayou Hammock on a Bayou front lot just under an acre with an ancient salt water spring that provides pristine waters and lies just feet from the dock in the Bayou, which is part of Sarasota Bay and flows right into the Gulf of Mexico. Needless to say bring your boat, your vision, and leave the rest behind because this property will serve you and generations to come with the ultimate upscale salt water island lifestyle. The beach is a quarter mile from the home and even though the property is in need of TLC it boasts of privacy and utility with 3 car detached garage under the guest house and an additional 1 car garage attached to the home as well. The walls are covered in discontinued rare pecky cypress wood and the floors are covered with a rare and beautiful mosaic tile in the main living area. This diamond in the rough has 3800 sq ft, has a pool, 90 ft of water frontage, 2 offices, a library and lots of mature landscping for future privacy, shade, and wildlife. This home would be great for a nice renovation that will boost its value in the mid 5's or can be a premeir site for a brandnew 6000 sq ft palace that will value it around 8 m, your decision. Don't let this rare exclusive oputunity slip away and contact us for a showing. Note: This was the former home of Herbert Fields the developer who built the Colony Beach Club on Longboat Key. He built this estate in 1953.
