Whitney Beach Real Estate for Sale – Longboat Key, Florida 34228

Whitney Beach

Whitney Beach is a community comprised of condominium townhomes located on the northern end of the 12-mile stretch of Longboat Key. Developed around 1969 up to the early 1970s, the condos in this property were built in three clusters of two-story townhouses and one-story villas. Two of these clusters are located east of Gulf of Mexico Drive towards the bay while the other sits across the street backing up to the beach, a rare layout for an entire community among Longboat Key condos for sale.

The smaller condos at Whitney Beach are one-bedroom units with living areas starting from about 700 square feet up to around 1,000 square feet. Discerning buyers will at once note that these units are more spacious than many two-bedroom condos in some Longboat Key complexes. Most condo hunters will likely be drawn too by these Whitney beach units’ affordable pricing which start at the low $200s. For two-bedroom condos having floor plans upwards of 1,200 square feet, the typical starting prices level up to the high $200s and top at around the $500s.

Bay and gulf amenities

Whitney Beach

Besides their attractive price points, available Longboat Key condos for sale at Whitney Beach are also prized finds in the market because of the community’s rich mix of bayside and gulf front amenities. On the gulf side of the complex, there is a conservancy area, a parcel which the condo owners’ association keeps for direct beach access and recreational facilities. This area is provided with two tennis courts, a pool, a nook for barbecue picnics, and two tiki huts with lounge chairs and other beach furnishings.

As equally enticing are the amenities on the bayside of Whitney Beach. Here, there’s a fishing pier, in addition to boat docks fronting the serene Bishop’s Bayou that leads to Sarasota Bay. All three clusters of townhouses in the complex each have their own swimming pools as well.

Shopping plaza plus historic village

Whitney Beach

Nearby local attractions likewise provide a lift to Longboat Key condos for sale at Whitney Beach. One boost is provided by the 10-acre Whitney Beach shopping plaza which has undergone a $2-million facelift. Its owner in October 2015 sought a rezoning of the property from commercial to tourism/residential use, with density not exceeding six units per acre.

Whitney Beach condos for sale also draw market strength from the historic Longbeach Village nearby whose charm extends beyond the peacocks roaming in some of its neighborhoods. For one, the Broadway Street in this village is home to one of Longboat Key’s popular dining venues—Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant & Pub. Also in the village’s periphery is the Longboat Key Center for the Arts, a division of Ringling College of Art & Design which holds exhibits, concerts and lectures.

Destinations for short boat trips

Several superb boating destinations are, moreover, within easy reach from the bayside docks of Whitney Beach. A local favorite nearby is the sandbar adjacent to Jewfish Key north of the condominium complex. Jewfish, a private island, is just as alluring with its secluded beaches and nature preserves providing habitats for wild parrots, great horned owls, and ospreys.

Towards west off Longboat Pass, more outdoor possibilities can be enjoyed at Beer Can Island, a quiet sandy hook ideal for shelling, fishing, and swimming. Delightful for Whitney Beach residents, this pristine coastal strip is accessible by taking a venturesome hike at low tide from the gulf side of their community.
