Step on to beautiful white sand Whitney beach, or a short walk to the bay boat and fishing dock.We love to walk on the beach and see the spectacular sunsets with a glass of wine. Nearby are the Bridge Tender Inn bar and restaurant on the water with music and singing, at the north end of the island, and the cafes and shops of stylishly casual St Armand's Circle. We like to eat seafood at the famous Columbia restaurant. Cross the gorgeous causeway onto Sarasota's Main Street with its street festivals and cafes, and the Burns St and Palm St Art District. Visit the Ringling Museum's entertainment complex with the Asolo Theater, Restaurants, Miniature Circus, and Botanical garden complex, right on the Bay. The Selby Botanical gardens and the Mote Aquarium are just some of the nearby attractions.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We are from the Boston area, live in Longboat Key in the winter, like walking on the beach and visiting the cafes of St Armand's Circle and Sarasota.
Why the Owner Chose Whitney Beach: We love this island, have stayed here a few times, the gorgeous beach and wildlife, and the cafes and street festivals. When this property became available last March, we bought it, and decided to completely remodel with a contemporary European flair. The condo is gorgeous and the view of the ocean is so stunning that we need no art on the walls, the view is the art!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The special thing about this condo is that you can step right on to this pristine beach, or into a heated swimming pool. The condo has the latest kitchen appliances and equipment, and the master bath is gorgeous. You can see the Gulf from the living room, kitchen, and master bedroom.
