A luxury beachfront estate in Regents Court, behind the gates of the Longboat Key Club, sold on April 29 for $7.5 million. It was the highest MLS sale on Longboat Key in five years, according to listing agent Roger Pettingell of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate--just two weeks after a home in nearby Country Club Shores sold for $5.1 million, making it the previously highest Longboat sale of 2019.
Set on 134 feet of Gulf-front, the home at 891 Longboat Club Road was built in 2005 and has five bedrooms and six baths in 5,974 square feet of living space. It had been listed at $8.4 million. Ian Addy and Gail Wittig of Michael Saunders & Company represented the buyers.
"The buyers are lovely genuine individuals who have been enjoying Longboat Key for many years," says Addy. "This purchase allows them a truly ideal setting in which they can create new memories with their family and grandchildren. [It's the] type of property that lends itself to being a multigenerational estate home that is enjoyed for decades to come."
