At the high end is this mansion on Roberts Point Circle, priced at $9,800,000. It’s brand- new and from the outside has a slight resemblance to the Bank of America, but in a good way. At this price point you expect everything, and this house pretty much delivers the goods—six bedrooms, six baths, 7,309 square feet under air, 30 tons of marble used throughout, a deep water dock, an infinity pool, a cylindrical glass elevator, a home theater, and a 10-car “auto salon.” (By the way, this is not the most expensive house in the neighborhood. There’s a whole slew priced between 3 and 15 million dollars.) Call Joel Schemmel at (941) 587-4894.
Too big? Well, here’s something a block or so away. At 628 square feet it could easily fit in the “auto salon.” It’s got one bedroom, one bath, and a small lot covered with shell. But surprise—it’s a terrific little cottage, a throwback to the old days on Siesta. It seems a little pricey at $400,000 until you realize it’s on a very picturesque little canal, complete with dock. The inside is nicely remodeled. It would make a great weekend retreat. Call Lynn Robbins at (941) 366-8070.
