One or more photo(s) has been virtually staged. A rare opportunity to build your dream waterfront home overlooking the panorama of Sarasota Bay. On the market for the first time in 28 years, this prime Â¼+ acre property is one of 7 homes on Jessmyth Drive, a private road in secluded Longboat Key Estates coveted for its access to both bay and canal. 590 Jessmyth has +100 ft of unobstructed waterfront, +100 ft of boat-accessible canal, and is a 5-minute leisurely walk to the white sandy beaches of the Gulf.

Richmond homes are common in Sarasota, but here you'll see the spectacular effect of her signature open floor plan, designed to bring the outdoors in. Perfect home to update or, better yet, start fresh and design a home from your very own vision of coastal living.

Near to the renowned shops and restaurants of St. Armand's Circle and the famously exclusive Longboat Key Club. Properties like 590 Jessmyth don't come on the market often.
