Waterfront Estate on Siesta Key Sells for $10 Million – Region’s Largest Sale in Two Years

Snook Inn

Snook Inn

A significant waterfront estate on the northern tip of Siesta Key has become the largest residential sale in Sarasota County in over two years. 

The luxury property, known as “Snook Inn,” closed this past week for $10 million, with agents from Michael Saunders & Company representing both the buyer and seller. 

Located at 3410 Flamingo Avenue, Snook Inn—so named for its Old Florida resort-style ambiance—was listed by Marcia Salkin and Paulene Soublis of the Longboat Key South office of Michael Saunders & Company. The buyers were represented by Pam Charron of the Main Street office of Michael Saunders & Company.

A Boater’s Haven with Skyline Views

With boating access to Big Pass—the nearest gateway to the Gulf of Mexico—only seconds away, Snook Inn has been dubbed the finest boating estate in Sarasota, and perhaps along the entire West Coast of Florida.  Its nearly two acres and 500 feet of frontage on Sarasota Bay—at the confluence of Hansen Bayou—afford spectacular skyline views of downtown Sarasota across wide expanses of open water. 

A Triumph of DesignSK Sale 2

Designed by noted architect Clifford Scholz and built by the master waterfront builder Michael Collingwood, this extraordinary gated property features a one-of-a-kind, deep water, double-vessel boat house.  The main residence includes six bedroom suites—including the first floor, two-bedroom master suite with exercise room.  Also included are an antique pine-paneled library, deluxe custom millwork, oversized waterfront verandas and a one-bedroom guest suite attached to the boat house.  Outside are a large resort-like swimming pool, shuffleboard courts and two bayfront docks to accommodate visiting boats.
