Clearwater Beach Land For Sale, $26.9M, by Engel & Völkers

Kelly Montgomery-Kepler and Sylvia Tzekas of Engel & Völkers Belleair co-list one of the last buildable lots on world-famous Clearwater Beach for $26.9M

Belleair Bluffs, FLORIDA September 1, 2020 - Engel & Völkers announced Kelly Montgomery-Kepler, License Partner of Engel & Völkers Belleair, and Sylvia Tzekas, real estate advisors, are co-listing of one of the last vacant, buildable lots on Clearwater Beach, FL. Listed at $26,900,000, 551 Gulf Boulevard is situated at the base of Sand Key Bridge and offers the opportunity to develop 3.2 acres into the next destination resort, condominium or restaurant.

My husband and his family proudly served the community with their restaurant for nearly three decades and is now ready for its next chapter. I believe this is an incredible opportunity for a discerning investor to build a destination resort on the number one beach in America, said Tzekas. The white sugar sands and picturesque sunsets offer absolute tranquility.

The property was once home to the iconic Fisherman's Wharf restaurant, opened by Dalip Tzekas, an Albanian-immigrant, in 1963. Owned and operated by the family of eight, the Fisherman's Wharf served the community for 27 years. The property has also been leased to Leverock's Great Seafood, Shells Seafood Restaurant, and Five Five One. Known for its infamous and rare basement, the building was recently demolished in April 2020, leaving the property bare and ready for its next chapter.

We are so excited to strategically position this unique property to reach the perfect buyer who will contribute to the spirit and growth of Clearwater Beach, said Montgomery-Kepler.

Clearwater Beach is known for its impeccable sugar sand beaches that stretch two and a half miles and has frequently been ranked one of the best beaches in the United States. Its Sandpearl Resort was named one of the best beach resorts in the United States, and in January 2013, Clearwater Beach was awarded the of Floridas Best Beach Town by a USA Today reader poll ranking 10 Florida beach destinations. In February 2019, Clearwater Beach was named the best beach in the United States and the sixth-best in the world by TripAdvisor.
