SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwired - May 14, 2013) - Located in the exclusive Golden Gate Point community in downtown Sarasota, a penthouse residence at Vista Bay Point will sell at an absolute auction on June 7 with no minimums and no reserves. Featuring a private veranda that offers panoramic views of both the ocean and downtown, the residence will sell fully furnished through J. P. King Auction Company.

Along with its sweeping views of Longboat Key, Bird Key, Lido Key, the Sarasota Bay and downtown Sarasota, the three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom residence encompasses the entire floor of the 17-unit building. Included in its amenities, Vista Bay Point caters to its high-end residents with an athletic center, heated pool and spa, theater room, guest suite, event facilities, game room, billiard table and a catering kitchen and bar.

"The best thing about it is the views. There's not another view in Sarasota County anywhere close to this," said Derwood Godwin, the home's owner. Mr. Godwin, originally from North Carolina, said he spent years searching for the right views in a beach property.

"When we saw the plans for this, we knew this was finally it. We bought it from the picture, and it's even greater than I thought it would be," Mr. Godwin said.

The condominium's large picture windows provide sweeping views, but the best views come from the residence's private, rooftop veranda. With a domed kitchen and bathroom, the veranda has seating for about 30 guests.

The 3,300 square foot property includes other high-end finishes such as Italian marble flooring, crown moulding, accent lighting, in-house surround sound with touch panels in every room and a two-car garage. The master bedroom includes a marble, multi-head shower and a soaking tub, along a dual vanity.

The auction will take place on Friday, June 7 at 1 p.m. at the home, located at 128 Vista Golden Gate Point in Sarasota. Property tours will begin on May 24 by appointment and continue through auction day. For additional information, individuals may contact J. P. King at 800.558.5464 or visit the company's website at
