Buyer gets big Custom Sarasota Waterfront Home and vacant lot on Bird Key for $8.6 million

Notably, this was the highest-priced sale for a luxury custom home in Sarasota on Bird Key – ever! 

A Bird Key luxury home with an adjacent vacant lot sold Wednesday for a total of $8.6 million, the highest-priced closing in the Sarasota-Manatee-Charlotte market this year and the top sale on Bird Key ever for this Sarasota waterfront custom home. This Cliff Scholz-designed home was built in 2003 by Perrone Construction.  This Sarasota waterfront custom home has some of the most amazing views to be found in Sarasota.

The listings at 622 S. Owl Drive and 626 S. Owl Drive sit along Sarasota Bay, with the vacant lot wrapping around to the Dolphin Waterway canal, with a total water frontage of 230 feet. The seller was represented by Roger Pettingell, who is associated with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. Susan Fox of Michael Saunders & Co. represented the buyer.

Similarly in 2017, the record for a residential real estate deal clocked in at $9 million for a Siesta Key home on Sanderling Road. Previously, in 2016, the top sale was $7 million for a Longboat Key residence on Gulf of Mexico Drive.
