Castillian Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Florida 34228

Castillian

The Castillian is one of the most established condominium communities in Longboat Key, having been developed in the late 1970s. It was at this period when the concept of cooperative or co-ownership of exterior features in multiple-unit dwellings was gaining ground and setting a firm market foundation for condos for sale in Longboat Key.

Also thanks to property developments like the Castillian, the island gets to keep some esoteric reminders of the Spanish explorers who first visited Longboat Key as part of the Hernando de Soto expedition to the Americas during the 16th century. Reminiscent of this quaint vignette from early Florida, this condominium’s identity comes as an apparent take from Castile in the historical region of central Spain which is famous for its beautiful medieval castles.

Engaging Property Features

Castillian

The Castillian condo complex is located mid-key at 4525/4545 Gulf of Mexico Drive in a beachfront parcel edging towards north Longboat Key. It was developed with two midrise, six-story residential buildings which are at once endearing with their modern architectural design. Though their sleek construction is definitely a contemporary style, this pair was built with some distinct traces of Spanish Mediterranean influence evident in their accents of tiled roofs and ramparts evocative of a Castile pedigree.

Quite winsome as well, the two Castillian buildings were positioned lengthwise parallel to the property’s beach thereby providing all their residential units with unobstructed gulf views. This picturesque setting of Castillian condos for sale is further enhanced by the condominium’s superb landscaping which features expansive carpets of verdant grass and shrubbery, tropical palms and brick-pavered paths and driveways.

For the residents’ convenience, the common facilities of the condominium were constructed between its two buildings. These amenities include a resort-type swimming pool, a clubhouse and tennis court. The complex also provides a barbecue and picnic area, a perfect match for enjoying the alluring beach only a stone’s throw away from the Castillian condos for sale. Secured entry, under-building parking and building elevators complete the condominium’s list of facilities.

Low-density Condo

Castillian

The Castillian is a low-density development, having just some 60 residences amidst a quiet neighborhood comprised of the Casa del Mar and La Playa mid-rise condos and the low-rise townhouses of Longboat Harbour.

The typical floor plans of Castillian condos for sale range from 1,340 to 1,738 square feet with options in two- or three-bedroom. Recent property valuations for these condo units come in price quotes of between the high $400s and the $800s.

Picks on Castillian condos for sale, however, don’t come too often, given that it has relatively fewer units. With their highly desirable features and proximity to local points of interest, available units in this property can also be sold within a few weeks of their listing in the market.

Castillian units listed amongst condos for sale in Longboat Key, especially those in the lower range, move fast as rental condo investments. Notably, the property owners in this condominium have the option to rent their units thrice a year with one month as minimum tenancy, a policy that creates a ground that many investors found as viable. Proximity to points of interest not only in Longboat Key but also to those in St. Armands Circle and downtown Sarasota further enhances the marketability of Castillian condos for sale.
