Custom Waterfront Home Builder & Bespoke Architect Set Records on Luxury Sarasota Properties

The two most expensive residential waterfront construction home sales ever recorded on Bird Key sold on the same day, June 1, 2023. That morning, 622 S. Owl Dr sold for a record-setting $9.75 million only to be bumped into second place hours later with the sale of its neighboring property 626 S. Owl Dr. for a cool $12.25 million. It is no coincidence that both of these properties were designed by architect Clifford M. Scholz and built by Perrone Construction. The luxury home architecture and building companies have a long-standing history of collaborating on award-winning luxury estates, including some of Sarasota’s most iconic residences.

With a combined total of $20 million, the neighboring waterfront homes were designed by the luxury home architect in 2003 and 2021 respectively. The larger and newer of the two is a 6,576-square-foot home containing five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. CMSA’s team ensured the design would satisfy growing demands for electric car charging points. It has a second-floor terrace overlooking the pool, with views of the Big Pass, Lido, and Siesta Keys.

In addition to these bay-front properties, the two companies have come together to work on a variety of high-end properties ranging in all different architectural styles and complexity including modern family homes, Tuscan-style villas, Mediterranean-inspired residences, elegant Georgian manors, and classic chateaus. With shared projects beginning with landmark architectural feats in Sarasota in the 1980s, the long-time collaborators have a synergy built on delivering high-quality craftsmanship and luxury design.
