I know, it sounds too good to be true, but apparently, you could own this $10 million dollar beach house in Sarasota, Florida, for as little as a $10,000 dollar bid at auction this weekend!

According to a press release from Jaclyn Fenton at Liquified Creative, Decaro Auctions International will be auctioning off this amazing property this Saturday, December 3rd. The beach house is located on Lido Key in Sarasota, on the Gulf of Mexico. Apparently, locals refer to this place as “The Pirate House” or “The Cactus House.” 

This multi-million dollar beach house features five bedrooms, five and 1/2 baths, a 12-car garage with a 10,000-pound car lift, and a unique fourth level rooftop deck. Unobstructed views of the Gulf Coast sunsets will be enjoyed from this deck, which is perfect for entertaining, or enjoying a jacuzzi.

Per the press release, the kitchen features “custom electronic touch and close cabinetry, Wolf appliances, and a quartzite statement island with a waterfall edge.” You can view high quality images of this incredible beach house by clicking here.

So, are you ready to move in yet? “The live, No Reserve, Truly Absolute Auction will take place at the property on Saturday, December 3, at 11:00 a.m.” Eastern time. However, remote bidding is available for those of us in the Las Vegas valley who may be looking for a new home, or if you’re rich enough, a second home.

This beach house is going to sell to the highest bidder, without reserve, even if the highest bid is only $10,000 dollars! You can visit for complete information about this property and this weekend’s auction. Good luck!
