The owner of the “Aquadisia” estate on Siesta Key has listed the residence and its 550 linear feet of Gulf beach for sale with an asking price of $18 million.

The listing for Aquadisia, the most expensive in Sarasota County, is held by Realtor Kim Ogilvie and her husband Michael of Michael Saunders & Co.

Ogilvie told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune she expects a national marketing effort will be required to find a buyer for Aquadisia on behalf of the owner, Jeff Roberti.

Aquadisia, derived from the word aphrodisia, is a four-acre cluster of residences surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico on one side and by a lagoon on the other.

The estate includes a main residence and two guest houses with a total of 11,100 square feet of living space. The wood-dominated main living level spans 5,000 square feet and includes a deck with a spa tub. The estate is located inside a gated Siesta Key enclave called the Sanderling Club.

Former owner Stacey Siegel advertised the property for sale for $22 million on Zillow.com and sold it a year ago for $11.85 million to Roberti in an all-cash transaction.

Roberti told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune that he listed Aquadisia for sale because he travels about 200 days a year and struggles to meet the demands of both his profession and the property.

“Maybe I am the first guy who bought a big property and thought that was what he wanted,” he told the newspaper. “And then when I started thinking about all the moving parts and the complexity of the property … there are two of us.”

Among the distinctive features of the property are its 550-foot beach and a labyrinthine garden with the letter “A” displayed at its center, serving as the logo of Aquadisia. The property also has 50 royal palm trees and a swimming pool that extends under the main house. [Sarasota Herald-Tribune] Mike Seemuth
