This incredible custom residence is set at the tip of Point Crisp. Pictured: 1456 Point Crisp Rd.

Named after a robber-baron and an exquisite and historic part of Siesta Key’s past, the peninsula of Point Crisp extends into the Intracoastal Waterway and Little Sarasota Bay on the east side of Siesta Key—just south of the Stickney Point Bridge. This exclusive enclave of 16 properties lines a lush, tropical, meandering road. Of these, nine properties are set on a point of land that juts out into Little Sarasota Bay, affording beautiful water views from both the front and rear of the homes. One special property even boasts its own private island. In addition to its proximity to one of the world’s most gorgeous beaches, this prized location offers exceptional boating water. Point Crisp is truly a unique tropical paradise and a pleasure to call home.

Market Activity – Point Crisp

Point Crisp is a historical part of Siesta Key and Sarasota’s literary history. Formerly the home of celebrated mystery writer John D. MacDonald—author of the Travis McGee series—the peaceful, serene and quiet setting that once provided the solitude to write remains to this day. Many of the original homes on Point Crisp are now gone, replaced with some of the most impressive, palatial masterpieces in the area.
MacDonald’s home at the tip of Point Crisp has been removed, and a beautiful new home is currently under construction—offered for sale with Michael Saunders & Company at $6,200,000. There is another point property for sale, as well as two bayfront homes starting at $3,200,000.

As of this writing, there are 33 bayfront properties available on Siesta Key beginning at $1,000,000.
