Sea Club I Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Florida 34228

Sea Club I

Though relatively small, Sea Club I is one of the properties pivotal to the development of the market for Longboat Key condos for sale. Location and longevity have much to do with this distinction. This property, located at 4141 Gulf of Mexico Drive, is right at where the jurisdiction of the 12-mile long island is split between Sarasota and Manatee counties.

Hugging the Manatee side of this landmark, Sea Club I is also very much part of the early development of Longboat Key which its residents voted to be a township in 1955. The first residences in this property, old Florida style cottages, were built a year prior to that historic referendum. Construction of a two-story apartment-type building followed in 1956, as interest among tourists and snowbirds on the town started growing.

Condo conversion

Sea Club I

Consistently offering affordable rates in the travel market for decades, Sea Club not only helped establish Longboat Key as favored U.S. tourist destination. Its eventual condominium conversion also molded itself as a potent investment for rental property buyers.

The condominium has a newly renovated swimming pool with its deck fully furnished with tables, loungers and garden chairs. Its landscaping has also matured and is very well-maintained, iconic of a beach resort nestled amid coconut trees, tropical palms, and meandering brick paver pathways.

The attractive prices typically quoted for Sea Club I condos for sale could make rental investors immediately do the math with their realtors. Studios and one-bedroom residences with floor plans of about 350 square feet at the condominium’s two-story building could draw multiple bids at listing prices at around the $100s. The beachfront cottages and villas, designed with two bedrooms and one bath within floor areas of up to nearly 700 square feet, could as easily draw serious buyers.

Aspiring investors generally take quick action on a Longboat Key condo for sale at Sea Club I. Listings here are quite rare as there are only 24 units in this property, and few of their owners are inclined to sell because of this condominium’s popularity among renters.

An island favorite

Sea Club I

In addition to its affordable rental rates, Sea Club I perennially draws guests owing to its endearing and highly personalized management treating patrons like family or friends. Likewise working great for this property is its mid-key location close to local points of interest.

Sea Club I guests and residents enjoy close proximity to the quaint Longbeach Village, the first settlement in the island. This charming community a few minutes’ drive north of the condominium has an old Florida ambiance that serves as a perfect setting for the Longboat Key Center for the Arts and a popular dockside restaurant.

A short distance south of Sea Club I, the lifestyle tempo in Longboat Key picks up a bit at the Bayfront Park Recreation Center where the amenities include sports facilities and social venues.

Moreover, a short trip to the southern end of the town enables quick access to the shops and restaurants at the Avenue of the Flowers Town Plaza and the Bay Isles Parkway area. And just as convenient, a reliable trolley transport serves the island for even more life and leisure stops at St. Armands Circle and downtown Sarasota, destinations that too help bring market excitement on Longboat Key condos for sale.
