The record for sale price of a Siesta Key property has been smashed.
On Dec. 9, the house known as “Aquadisia” sold for $14 million. It breaks the local record of $11.85 million that was established in 2014 with the same home. The 3.76-acre estate runs across three parcels in the gated Sanderling Club, located on the Key’s south end. The addresses involved are 7711, 7712, and 7660 Sanderling Rd., and the property includes 528 feet of beach frontage.
The house, which was designed in 1999 by architect Guy Peterson in his minimalistic, modern style, boasts 6,480 square feet. A guest house offers another 2,616 square feet.
Realtor Donna Wright-Morgan of Coldwell Banker listed the property on July 29. She also represented the owners when they were buyers last year, when they paid $10.5 million for the property.
“Two once-in-a-lifetime deals for me,” she said of her accomplishment. “It was a pleasure working with these people.”
The $10.5 million purchase in 2020 at the time tied second-best on the Key. In 2019, a property at 3799 Flamingo Ave. also went for that price.
Sarasota County’s highest sale is a tie at $16.5 million for a home on Casey Key (2021) and one on Longboat Key (2020).
