[Real Estate]  Siesta Home Listed for Nearly $16M
Jacob Ogles, jacob.ogles@srqme.com

A Siesta Key mansion just hit the market with a price tag of $15.95 million, the latest sign the luxury real estate market on the Gulf Coast continues to thrive.

Marketed by the Laughlin Tanner Group of Premier Sotheby’s, the Point Crisp Road property sits on a private peninsula on Little Sarasota Bay, making the location especially attractive. Like other Gulf Coast properties, agents had no problem posting a seven-figure listing.

“Siesta Key is a sought-after destination where superlatives are a way of life,” said Peter Laughlin, of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty. “This home transcends island luxury; presenting a one-of-a-kind residential opportunity to wake up and live inspired every day.”

Just in January, Premier Sotheby’s International Realty listed another home for $22 million, the priciest home on the market at that time. A search of listings also shows Ocean Real Estate has a sale pending on a $16.95 million home on Higel Avenue. There is also a 6-bedroom coastal home on Sanderling Road listed at $16.8 million.

While listings and inventory are on the rise in the Sarasota market, it remains a seller’s market. The Realtor Association of Sarasota and Manatee in February reported about 3.5 months of inventory. A balanced market typically means there are six months worth of inventory available.

The latest listing on Point Crist Road, built in 2001, features coastal contemporary architecture with an elevator and views from every room. It boasts 7,000 square feet of air conditioned space, including six en-suite bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms. Most of the rooms have balconies. The property has 546 feet of waterfront, as well as a heated spa, beach kayak launch, tiki hut gazebo, fire pit and boat dock.

It’s also a home designed for entertaining, with a gourmet kitchen and a climate-controlled wine room. Gathering spaces include a movie theater, fitness center and family room with French doors connecting to a covered patio and open balcony.

There have also been upgrades to the property including its security system, landscaping and limestone seawalls.

“The meticulously maintained landscape is enclosed for the utmost privacy so that the island lifestyle can be enjoyed to the fullest,” reads a release on the listing.

[All Faiths Food Bank]  A Decade of Filling the 'Hunger Gap' for Area Children

Summertime should be the best part of the year for our community’s students. Sadly, as many as 40,000 area children will need food this summer.

Nearly 50% of Sarasota County and 100% of DeSoto County students rely on free and reduced-cost meals at school. The summer months can be especially difficult for the children of families struggling to put food on the table, as they lose access to those meals as well as school pantries, which also provide nutritional assistance.

Since 2014, All Faiths Food Bank has worked to fill the summer “hunger gap” for students and their siblings through the Campaign Against Summer Hunger.

With a challenge match of $900,000 this year, all donations to the Campaign Against Summer Hunger made between April 1 – May 15 will be doubled. Gifts of any amount are appreciated and will help thousands of children.

Please visit allfaithsfoodbank.org to make a gift. 

[Renovation]  Babcock Ranch Lake Timber Lodge Renovations Enhance Resident Connections

Kitson & Partners has completed renovations at Babcock Ranch’s first recreational amenity building and unveiled a new name – Lake Timber Lodge, a rustic waterfront clubhouse with a swimming pool and gathering spaces for events, meetings and activities for residents. Renovations added poolside cabanas and a new screened porch at the lodge, formerly known as The Lakehouse. With iconic architecture accented by stone and exposed beams and a 25-foot indoor ceiling, the landmark has welcomed arriving residents, homebuyers and visitors since opening in early 2018 at Babcock Ranch, the nation’s No. 5 fastest-selling residential community in 2022. The building is located just past the Lake Babcock Drive bridge, once the town’s only entrance, and perched along Lake Timber near the Lake Timber neighborhood. “The lodge has created so many memories for our families as they’ve celebrated birthdays, anniversaries and other milestones,” said Syd Kitson, chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners, developers of Babcock Ranch. “Kids and adults have formed lasting friendships around the pool, at resident events and during everyday interactions at the lodge. The screened porch elevates that experience as a place to meetup with friends and enjoy the birds and wildlife along the lake.”

The renovations were unveiled during a concert March 31 and a music workshop the following day. Inspired by the historic Cypress Lodge on neighboring Babcock Reserve, Lake Timber Lodge was built with structural insulated panels stronger than masonry and was the most energy-efficient building at Babcock Ranch, America’s first solar-powered town. Spanning 2,400 square feet, it offers a double-sided fireplace enjoyed from interior gathering spaces and by the zero-entry pool and lakefront sundeck. Additional amenities include barbecue grills and a playground. Inside, exposed beams tower above a catering kitchen, a comfortable living room featuring relaxed rustic-chic décor and TVs and expanses of windows and doors overlooking the lake and a nearby fishing dock.Encompassing 18,000 acres, Babcock Ranch is planned for 19,500 residences and about five million square feet of commercial space. Created by Kitson & Partners with the philosophy that smart growth and sustainability work hand in hand, half of Babcock Ranch’s town’s footprint is set aside as greenways, parks and expansive lakes, providing recreation and scenic backdrops for Babcock Ranch’s homes and the Founder’s Square downtown district.Babcock Ranch continues to explore higher environmental standards in homebuilding with the introduction of Innovation Way, a neighborhood with seven showcase homes serving as a testing ground and living laboratory. National homebuilders Lennar, Pulte Homes and D.R. Horton are evaluating the possibilities for a new wave of homebuilding solutions, implementing cutting-edge technology, new materials and construction practices to create the most energy-efficient, water-preserving and health-forward homes on the market. Florida Power & Light Company will analyze energy efficiency throughout the testing period. The town also offers homes from national and regional homebuilders, including D.R. Horton, Lennar, Meritage Homes, Pulte Homes, Toll Brothers, WCI and William Ryan Homes and custom homes by AR Homes by Arthur Rutenberg, Divco Custom Homes and Florida Lifestyle Homes. Christopher Alan Homes will also soon introduce new homes at Babcock Ranch. Midtown, Babcock Ranch’s exciting next development phase planned for a mixed-use town center, parks and village green, will feature six initial neighborhoods and dozens of new floor plans adding to the over 50 home designs already available. Homes range from 1,120 to more than 4,000 square feet with pricing from the upper-$200,000s to over $4 million. For more information about Southwest Florida’s new hometown, located just northeast of Fort Myers off Babcock Ranch Road/State Road 31, visit the Woodlea Hall Discovery Center at 42850 Crescent Loop in Babcock Ranch, call 877-709-6620, or visit www.BabcockRanch.com.
