Property description

This 2300 square foot villa is located in an exclusive gated community on the red golf course of the Longboat Key Club, and enjoys private beach access at the nearby Bay Isles Beach Club. With an open floor plan and skylights, the home is bright and airy, boasting an interior atrium, vaulted ceilings, and sliding glass doors to a large and private lanai. The sunny lanai encloses an optionally heated pool and hot tub, sun bathing deck, BBQ grill and eating area.

The property includes three bedrooms (one each king, queen and twin set), a large living room with office nook, a separate dining room, a TV/breakfast room combination, laundry room, kitchen, and a two car garage. Furnishings are predominately high quality wicker and leather pieces, and the property is filled with original art.

Our home is less than three blocks to the Moorings, Longboat Key's deep water marina, and five to six blocks to the island's main retail service center, where grocery, drugstore, post office, casual dining/deli, clothing and gift shops are found. Here also is the incredibly active and well-managed Longboat Key Tennis Center, hosting 10 clay courts and three full time professional tennis instructors.

Just a few miles south is St. Armands Circle, well known for it's array of ice cream parlors and coffee houses, upscale dining, boutique shopping, and people watching opportunities. St. Armands is also a regular venue for free evening concerts and entertainment. Less than ten minutes across the John Ringling Bridge, lies Sarasota's booming downtown, with its eclectic mix of art galleries, restaurants, shopping, performing arts, and tourist attractions.

For the discriminating traveler, our Bay Isles home offers private, first class accommodations, and easy access to a wide variety of sporting and cultural activities along the turquoise waters of the the Gulf of Mexico.

Car: Recommended

Steeped in a rich circus history, Sarasota offers a year round abundance of visual and performing arts, and a plethora of waterfront options for dining and play. The city is flanked on the west by a series of barrier islands, along the Gulf of Mexico. One of the largest, and certainly the most serene,f these islands is Longboat Key. With wide and generally uncrowded beaches, the island uniquely offers daily necessities within walking distance, and sits just minutes North of the bustling shopping and dining possibilities in St. Armands Circle, and in downtown Sarasota.
