$10 million sale among Bay Isles' highest
Sale is top price of the year for a bayfront home on Longboat Key.
A waterfront home that sold last week just around the corner from Sarasota Bay is one of the top sellers on Longboat Key this year.
Bruce M yer of Coldwell Banker Realty represented Gary and Kim Warren in the sale of the property at 550 Harbor Point Road, behind the gates of the Bay Isles community. Steve Walter of Michael Saunders & Co. represented the buyers, which county records show were Bill and Beverly Thomas of Dallas-based Arrowhead Management Trust.

The 6,000-square foot home sold for $10 million. Already in 2022, homes on Longboat have sold for $13.75 million, $11.5 million, $10.4 million, but each of those was a gulf-front property. This sale is the highest price in 2022 for a bayfront property and is among the highest prices ever attained in Bay Isles.
The third of an acre lot sits on a deep-water canal with 156 feet of water frontage and is easily accessible to Sarasota Bay. The back yard dock can accommodate a large vessel, and a pair of personal watercraft lifts are immediately adjacent.
