STUNNING SIESTA KEY HOME BECOMES HIGHEST SALE ON THE BARRIER ISLAND FOR 2018

Represented by Kim Ogilvie of Michael Saunders & Company, the Estate in the Sandy Hook Neighborhood Closed at $5,850,000

Becoming the highest sale on Siesta Key and the third highest in Sarasota County thus far in 2018, 16 Sandy Hook Road South closed Friday afternoon for $5.85 million. Represented by Kim Ogilvie of leading luxury brokerage Michael Saunders & Company, the custom-built waterfront estate reflects the epitome of Gulf-front living, boasting captivating architectural design, a private beach, guest house and expansive outdoor spaces with panoramic Gulf of Mexico views. Anja Deichmann, also of Michael Saunders & Company, represented the buyers.

“The sale of this estate on Siesta Key affirms what we have seen in the luxury real estate market over the last year: Buyers are looking to fall in love with a location and find a residence that affords a unique experience,” said Michael Saunders, Founder and CEO of Michael Saunders & Company. “Siesta Key is world-renowned for azure waters and pristine beaches. It comes as no surprise that many choose to make it a first or second home.”

Described by Realtor® Kim Ogilvie as a “brilliant Gulf-front compound nestled in the trees and overlooking the lapping waves,” 16 Sandy Hook Road South, has been owned by its sellers since the late 90’s when Ogilvie herself sold the original property to them. Over the years, the estate has been customized to the highest standards of luxury, convenience and safety. “Its proximity to Siesta Village and the mainland along with the attention to detail during the building process combine to create a beautiful lifestyle,” said Ogilvie. “Each space has a personality and a function that caters to enjoying the environment.” Ogilvie has been the top-producing agent in the Sarasota Board of Realtors for single-family residences over $1 million on Siesta Key since January 2010. In that time, she has garnered an intimate understanding of nearly every luxury property on the barrier island and amassed an impressive $136,597,000 in sales volume.

The buyers of the property were referred to Michael Saunders & Company Realtor Anja Deichmann after a previous customer championed her luxury real estate expertise. “My customers were unfamiliar with the area, but we quickly narrowed down the search to a few prime locations,” said Deichmann. “They wanted to find a well-constructed beachfront property, and this residence met all their expectations while providing the convenience of being close to the Village, boutiques and restaurants.”

Michael Saunders & Company has specialized in high-end waterfront property for over 42 years and holds a dominating 25.65% market share for luxury property, as reported in its third-quarter report for the Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties.
