Unit 301 at the 10-unit La Firenza at 4125 Gulf of Mexico Drive sold today for $4.25 million. The transaction was the second highest condo sale in Southwest Florida to date in 2014.
Roger Pettingell, of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate’s Longboat Key office, represented the seller. Steve Harris, of Michael Saunders & Co.’s St. Armands Circle office, represented the buyer.
“It looks like 2014 is shaping up to be a very strong year for luxury real estate. The properties on Longboat Key are selling,” said Pettingell in a news release. “This was an exceptional penthouse property in a small, intimate community. The residence encompassed the entire floor with amazing views.”
The 4,800-square-foot unit has three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a three-car garage and views of the beach from nearly every room. It has a split-bedroom plan and a master suite with its own foyer, wet bar and private sitting room or study with its own terrace that overlooks Sarasota Bay.
Pettingell, who was the top agent in Sarasota and Manatee counties in 2013 with $61.85 million in sales for the year, reports sales of more than $25 million so far in 2014.
