Property description

Come to paradise! Your eighth-floor apartment, Gulf front condo is just the right height and location to take in the breathtaking surroundings of Crescent Beach, rated the top beach in the USA! Still is!!

Your 30-foot screened lanai can be accessed through glass doors in three rooms. The beautiful view of the Gulf stretches as far as the eye can see. This beachfront unit is ideal for a couple desiring great comfort and expansive living, but still comfortable for 3 to 4.

The floor plan is identical to that of a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit, except that a wall between the 2nd bedroom & living room has been replaced with a folding door to provide privacy when not not being used as a large, open living area. With the NEW, beautiful twin xl Murphy beds, you have a den by day, or a second bedroom by night, No matter the number in your party, you still have the advantage of an open living room/den combination. See pictures.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Sands: Having lived in Florida since 1957, we chose Siesta Key as the ideal location for a vacation home. We now live in Sarasota, but love the Crystal Sands condo so much that we've decided to keep it forever.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: We moved to Orlando, Florida from Columbia, S.C. in 1957 and spent many wonderful vacations with our four children on Siesta Key. We purchased our beautiful condo on the 8th floor in 1985 and have shared it with many guests from all over the world. We manage our apartment and meet all our guests upon arrival so that you will get the best possible experience while on vacation knowing that we are 10 minutes away in case of any emergencies or should you need us for help or information.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Sands:
We chose Crystal Sands for its beauty which stood out above the rest! Siesta Key is the ideal location for a vacation home. We love this property so much that we've decided to keep it forever.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Besides the beauty of Crystal Sands, we have the best of all worlds--the powdery white beach, the calm expansive gulf, the breathtaking sunsets nightly, great weather, and beautiful Sarasota just over the North or South draw bridges. The expansive gulf is seen from our 30 ft lanai and from every room in our apartment. You can choose to eat your meals inside or on the 30 foot screened lanai. Our covered parking via covered walkway is only steps to 2 high rise elevators, and only steps from the elevators to the ocean-side heated pool inviting a wide, white powdery sandy beach. No other beach architecture is as unique as the Crystal Sands high rise building.
