523 Beach Rd

Endorsed by John Ringling himself and optimally situated directly across from beach access #9 on Siesta Key, the Ringling Beach House represents an opportunity to invest in a one-of-a-kind property located on a world-renowned coastline. Originally built in the 1920’s as staff housing for the circus empresario, the old Florida Spanish architecture stands like a historic sand castle moments away from the soft white sands of the beach. 11 resort-style accommodations with both coastal and big top inspired names – like Ringmaster and Sea Turtle – are spread out across the 4 buildings and .67 acres, delighting with recently updated and furnished interiors. Each unit includes a kitchen fully equipped with everything needed to make a family dinner, separate dining, living and bedroom areas. Some units additionally offer a washer/dryer. Amenities add to the already strong income-producing potential with two pools, outdoor grills, romantic gazebos and lush gardens. Walk across the street with provided beach towels, chairs and umbrellas to enjoy a day away from devices and underneath the warm sun. With an option to add a boat dock on the grand canal, you will have a true beach-to-bay property. A short walk to Siesta Village and an array of island cuisine, shopping and night life, the lot is your canvas to craft the ultimate getaway or continue a legacy of helping families connect with the beautiful natural splendor of the Gulf Coast.
