The Beach Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Florida 34228

The Beach

Established in 1950, The Beach condominium has been very much a part of the developments which have built Longboat Key into one of the leading U.S. travel destinations and a hotspot for prime real estate. This growth in popularity, sustained for over six decades, was reaffirmed in the 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards of Condé Nast Traveler’s Magazine which named Longboat Key in the Top 10 best islands in the country. A similar Condé Nast poll extended a similar accolade to the island-town in 2010.

A strong marketing presence in the travel industry built over many years indeed serves as a cornerstone for residential units at The Beach to draw attention among Longboat Key condos for sale. Hence, a sales listing in this property is not only ideal as private vacation home or a permanent residence but also a potential income-generating rental unit.

Quiet, low-density neighborhood

The Beach

This come-on for The Beach condos for sale is largely due to their prized direct beachfront location at 3465 Gulf of Mexico Drive. In this locality, the property developments have fewer units per acre and height of structures is strictly regulated by Longboat Key’s zoning regulations.

This low density of units per property development translates into just 15 condos at The Beach as well as a quiet ambience in the surrounding neighborhood. The other communities in the area also have relatively fewer residences. Dock on the Bay, a townhouse-type condo development across east of The Beach, for instance, has just 19 units.

Endearing condo townhouses

The Beach

The Beach condos for sale were likewise developed townhouse style in a two-story building constructed with balconies and terraces facing the beach. The units in this condominium have been designed either as one-bedroom studios having a floor area of about 300 square feet or two-bedroom condos with floor plans of around 840 square feet.

Prospective rental investors will immediately take notice of the potential of Longboat Key condos for sale at The Beach, especially with the attractive $200s pricing of the property’s one-bedroom condos.

The Beach condos for sale offer more besides their quiet and picturesque gulf-front location. Choice units in this complex come onto the market with tile flooring throughout, granite counter tops, and furnished with stainless steel appliances.

Strong push in rental market

The complex is efficiently run by an onsite management office which oversees the property’s rentals offered on a daily and weekly basis or longer. The facilities here include a heated beachfront swimming pool and a picnic area with barbecue grill.
