Spectacular once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to establish a personal estate on one of the most impressive waterfront lots of the Gulf Coast. This exceptional Gulf-front parcel offers a Lido Key address on Westway Drive, renowned for its globally recognized icons of midcentury modern design in the style of the Sarasota School of Architecture. The specific contour of this expansive .41-acre lot makes it the first Lido Shores address suitable for a deep-water dock and direct private boat access to the Gulf of Mexico. More than 120 feet of direct waterfront on the Gulf offers the opportunity for both private dock access and manicured landscaping or beach surface above the seawall, all with magnificent west-facing views of the water and the southern end of Longboat Key.
Adding incalculable value, this lot is already cleared and permitted for immediate build potential of a large-scale estate. Architectural plans drawn by Jerry Sparkman of the famed design firm Sweet Sparkman are available with the land purchase. These plans honor the style of the Sarasota School of Architecture with dramatic angles, cantilevered living spaces, and the maximum elevation allowed in this enclave of Lido Key, showcasing the most spectacular views of any residence in Lido Shores at a height of 52 feet. With potential for worldwide recognition in modern design, these bespoke drawings encompass 6,885 square feet of living space under air across a magnificent primary home and separate pool house, with additional specifications including pool and spa, hardscaping, landscaping, and multi-story water features.
Located in the most coveted position of the notable Lido Shores community, this Westway Drive parcel is uniquely poised for immediate groundbreaking. The address boasts acclaim not only for architectural distinction but for rare amenities that include private deeded beach access exclusive to Lido Shores residents, walking distance to the luxury boutiques and eateries of St. Armands Circle, and enviable proximity to the cosmopolitan core of Downtown Sarasota. With endless views and limitless potential, this is an incomparable and immediate opportunity to personalize ultra-luxury living on the Gulf Coast.
