Historic House on the Market on Siesta Key
Even though this is referred to as a “sellers’ market” — make no mistake—there are still thousands of houses for sale around the state. But there is one on Siesta Key that is different from any other.
4027 Roberts Point Road was originally built in 1957. A one-floor house that backs up to the Hanson Bayou off Higel Avenue. The home also had a classic wood boathouse.
Fast-forward to 1994, and the homeowners added two more floors to the house. Four more bedrooms, and three more bathrooms as well as another garage.
And now in 2021, that house has some unique features that have been grandfathered in: The original owner’s bedroom is now a self-contained apartment within the first level. A living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
Oh, and that boathouse? It is still there!
Those two items simply couldn’t be approved in this post-Hurricane Andrew regulations in the 1990s. They are legally conforming, which means they can be insured.
The house is built along part of a 176’ seawall. The hoist in the boathouse was re-built 15 years ago and can hold a 30’ boat that weighs up to 12,000 pounds.
Check out these pictures of a 5300 square foot, 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom mansion with amazing views of the bayou and Sarasota Bay. It’s location at the intersection of those two bodies of water allow it to have “peaceful” water with still great views—looking right across at The Field Club on the other side of the intracoastal.
The current owner spent $90,000 to upgrade the main bed and bathroom. There are also three fireplaces, a pool with salt water, a hot tub, an elevator and two garages with room for three vehicles.

Asking price is $3,295,000.
