There is a clear hierarchy when it comes to waterfront real estate in Southwest Florida, and the most valued and scarce land resource is the gulf-front property. 3970 Gulf of Mexico Drive is the only buildable lot currently available on Longboat Key with direct Gulf views. Ideally situated mid-key, this 20k SF blank canvas parcel is ready for your architect to design an ocean-view masterpiece, taking full advantage of the 127’ of width to offer panoramic Gulf views from nearly every room. Prefer not to wait to have plans drawn up from scratch? Mark Sultana of DSDG, one of Sarasota’s most in-demand architects, has designed a 5,600 SF modern floorplan that could be submitted for permitting almost immediately, saving you 6-9 months in the design process (plans available for separate purchase). With road access available internally in the Longboat Key Estates community, there is no need to enter and exit the property directly on Gulf of Mexico Drive. Further, with thoughtful placement of a privacy wall along Gulf of Mexico Drive, the road will nearly disappear from sight within the new home, leaving nothing but sea air and sand between your vantage point and the turquoise Gulf waters and breathtaking sunsets beyond. Longboat Key Estates owns the land directly seaward of the property, which affords residents a gated private beach access and a gazebo on the beach. There is also a community dock on the bay side of the neighborhood, and Bayfront Park is right next door with tennis, pickleball, basketball, dog park, and much more to offer. This package of optimal location, enchanting views, and build-ready convenience does not present itself often. Inquire for more details, including a property survey and builder/architect recommendations.
