A one-of-a-kind coastal retreat with over 175 feet of direct beach frontage has sold for $11.5 million — the highest-priced residential sale year-to-date on Longboat Key. The nearly 10,000-square-foot residence is the ultimate relaxing hideaway — complete with the finest interior appointments and unrivaled Gulf of Mexico views. Located at 3105 Gulf of Mexico Drive, the property was marketed exclusively by Joel Schemmel of Premier Sotheby's International Realty's Downtown Sarasota office.
Walls of windows and multiple terraces take full advantage of the idyllic waterfront location, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor living. Guests are welcomed through a grand foyer with a three-story curved staircase that showcases the vast, open floor plan. Designed for entertaining, the main level has it all — from a two-story great room with polished limestone tile and a stunning aquarium to a chef-inspired kitchen, butler's pantry, wet bar and formal dining room.
The third floor is appointed with an ultra-private master suite, thoughtfully designed with dual baths, custom closets and seating areas. There are four additional en suite bedrooms, including a fully equipped guest suite with a kitchenette and living area. A stunning sky lounge is the perfect perch for sunset views.
Outside, a tropical resort paradise awaits, with an infinity-edge saltwater pool and spa as well as a water slide that begins at the rooftop deck. The pool level is crafted with an array of amenities, from a kitchenette with custom cabinetry to a pool bath and an abundance of seating areas. The property is also equipped with a seven-car temperature-controlled garage, a three-stop commercial-grade elevator, whole-home automation system, generator and mature tropical landscaping.
"It was exciting to market and sell one of the most interesting beachfront properties on the Gulf Coast of Florida," said Joel Schemmel. "With this sale, we are happy to have achieved the highest sales price on Longboat Key this year just as we did in 2021."
