A $32.5 million Siesta Key real estate listing at 4221 Higel Ave., brokered by Mark Coppens of Living Vogue Real Estate of Sarasota, broke records for luxury real estate listings of residential property and homes for sale on the island in late 2022.
The pre-construction listing of the vacant property in Fiddler Bayou included a 1.42-acre waterfront lot with a private beach facing the Gulf of Mexico, architectural plans designed by Sarasota architects Sweet Sparkman Architecture & Interiors, as well as building permits, plans and a full construction package for a 9,754-square-foot, six-bedroom, nine-bath house. BCB Homes of Naples was listed as the builder of the future home.
The design of the residence, the listing stated, was “inspired by the over-water villas of Bali and Bora Bora.”
In describing the home, the listing reported that the home “combines traditional Balinese and Polynesian architecture with modern design and astounding features.” An 80-foot infinity pool with a 12-foot plunge, a primary suite with a 270-degree glass wall, a sauna, elevator and balconies are among the residence’s many luxurious elements.
According to the real estate listing, soon after the original investors completed extensive plans for their new home they learned that they needed to relocate “back to the West Coast.”
An option for a buyer to purchase the vacant 1.42-acre waterfront land for $9.995 million before ground was broken was also offered.
