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

Conrad Beach

Conrad Beach is a small but picturesque coastal community comprised of custom-built, single-detached residences in the quiet northwestern edge of Longboat Key. All told, it consists of just 27 homes, plus a few buildable lots.

Only a block east of the fabled Gulf of Mexico beach on the island, the homes for sale in Conrad Beach were developed starting 2001in an expansive triangular parcel wedged west of Gulf of Mexico Drive between Broadway Street and North Shore Road. Most of this development’s neighbors are low-rise and mid-rise condos.

Key West Masterpiece

Conrad Beach

The homes for sale in Conrad Beach stand out in their neighborhood with the white-painted split rail fencing around the property’s perimeter. This charming community boundary is likewise complemented by whitewashed sidewalks and pathways that enhance walkability in the neighborhood. More than half of the property has also been designated as open space set with lush landscaping.

Even more endearing, this community features Key West style homes showcasing the design and development savvy of Sarasota-based architect Frank Folsom Smith. In the Sarasota city center, Smith is best known for his acquisition and restoration of some 20 circa 1920s buildings in an area that eventually became the downtown Burns Court Historic District. Several of the vintage buildings which he restored in this district during the 1980s have been entered in the National Register of Historic Places.

Close-knit Village

Reflecting a tradition in excellence, Smith’s Conrad Beach was picked by Coastal Living Magazine for its seaside community development of the year award in 2001. This community won this coveted bragging right amongst Longboat Key homes for sale not only because of its masterful rendition as small coastal village where walkability is an essential part the neighborhood’s lifestyle.

Additionally, Conrad Beach also took the seaside village concept to the next level with the inclusion of common facilities and individual home features like front porches that promote a close-knit community. The neighborhood’s amenities include a large swimming pool and a poolside pavilion which serve as a venue for social activities.

Conrad Beach, moreover, is outside a short-term rental zone, and it therefore has a more stable base of residents necessary in fostering a high sense of community. Much like the features of condos for sale in Longboat Key and elsewhere, the homeowners’ association fee in this neighborhood covers maintenance of common areas, further setting the stage for some easy and carefree living.
