LONGBOAT KEY -- Two Longboat Key waterfront houses recently sold for nearly $2 million each.
A Tampa bank picked up a Longboat Key house overlooking Sarasota Bay for $2.2 million.
A company registered to USAmeriBank purchased a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath home at 6526 Bayou Hammock Road in Longboat Key, closing on the sale June 13.
The 4,631-square-foot home was acquired by Bank of New York Mellon by foreclosure in March after
Jeannette M. Nichol, was listed as incapacitated in court documents.
The family had owned the land since at least 1931, according to land records.
The value of the 1.65 acres was assessed at $1.9 million in 2013, according to the Manatee County Property Appraiser.
The wood frame home, built in 1949, was renovated in 1960, according to land records.
Another home with a view of Sarasota Bay also sold on Longboat Key.
A three-bedroom home on 0.83 acres sold for $1.8 million on June 17, according to land records.
The seller was Jaclyn Prager and the buyer was 5050 GMD Invest Ltd, which is registered to Canadian Wesley Neichenbauer, who maintains a home on Bird Key. Neichenbauer is an investment banker heavily involved with real estate and automobile dealerships in Canada, according to biography listed by a debt protection company where he serves as a board member.
It's likely this three-bedroom home would be razed for another one, as listings for the property said the home has no value because it has not been occupied for years and lacks utilities.
The masonry home was built in 1960, according to land records. The land is valued at $1.5 million, according to the property appraiser.
