SARASOTA, FLA.(May 9, 2019) — A magnificent waterfront estate situated on a rare 4-acre parcel of land in the exclusive Sanderling Club has sold for $7.5 million, the highest-priced residential sale on Siesta Key since 2017. The Gulf-to-lagoon property with private beach and separate guest house is located at 8218 Sanderling Road. Joel Schemmel, of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Sarasota – Downtown office, listed and sold the home in just four months — representing both the buyer and seller.


The main home built in 1986 with 8,638 interior square feet of living space has five-bedrooms and features waterfront views from almost every room. Multiple terraces and open-air living spaces overlook the expansive beachfront property with private tennis court. A charming 1,986-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath guest house with boat dock is perched on Heron Lagoon. In addition, the owner will enjoy the world-class amenities of the Sanderling Club, from its beach club, cabanas and tennis courts to its ample dockage on the bay side of the island.


Ranked among the top 1% of REALTORS® in the Sarasota area, Joel Schemmel’s closed or pending sales have exceeded $45 million year to date.


“There are not many properties offering 4 acres on the Gulf of Mexico. We were confident we could unite our seller with a discerning buyer who appreciated the value of this rare offering, resulting in the highest-priced sale on Siesta Key in just four months.The Buyer who has a home in Naples, was excited to find such a unique property and value equation compared to the Naples market.
