Home on Sarasota Bay shores sells for $15.5 million

The 1.5-acre property resides within Harbor Acres.

A home on the Sarasota Bay shores sold for $15.5 million, driving it near the top of the highest priced residential sales list in Sarasota and Manatee counties. 

Inspired by French provincial design, the gated estate at 1309 Vista Drive in Harbor Acres takes up roughly an acre and a half with 230 feet of westward-facing bay frontage.

“Homes like this do not come along very often in the Sarasota market — both the design and waterfront location are a rare, winning combination, and it was an honor to represent the sale of this property,” lead selling agent Ryan Ackerman of the Longboat Key-based Ackerman Group, affiliated with Coldwell Banker Realty, says in a story first reported on by the Sarasota Observer, a sister paper of the Business Observer. “The exquisite details of this home — inside and out — are second to none. The infinity edge pool with Jacuzzi that overlooks the bay is breathtaking and the interior will be a decorator’s dream to furnish.”

The buyers' agent was Barbara May of Michael Saunders & Co.’s Main Street office.

The home, designed by architect Thorning Little and built in 2010 by Bruce Saba, offers nearly 8,500 square feet. The home includes four bedrooms and four-and-two-half baths.
