"Once in a while, an extraordinary historic property becomes available in Sarasota. This is one of those properties. Tucked away on Siesta Key amid the tropical tranquility of Point Crisp, the close to ¾-acre site spans a total of 371 feet on the Bay— providing both endless views and a waterfront lifestyle beyond compare. Bring your vision for a dream island home to this exclusive locale with expansive waterfall pool, where your Floridian neighbors will include playful dolphin and graceful manatee. The new owner will not only enjoy a magnificent property, but also inherit a marvelous story to share with family and guests. The existing 1950’s Old Florida bungalow with detached guest house once belonged to renowned local writer, John D. MacDonald, who is known to have hosted one of the greatest American authors of the 20th century, Ernest Hemingway. The Point Crisp enclave is just minutes from laid-back Siesta Village for al-fresco dining and shopping, as well as the crystal quartz sands the island is known for. Downtown Sarasota, the cultural capital of Florida, awaits merely a short drive away. Contact us today to discover more about this uncommon opportunity."
