Longboat Arms

Relative affordability in a sought-after waterfront location is definitely a selling point for condos for sale in Longboat Arms. This community is cradled by Cranes Bayou, a serene water course which is a few paddle strokes away from the charming Buttonwood Harbor extending onward to the waters of Sarasota Bay.

Longboat Arms condos for sale are directly opposite many of the pricey single family homes of the Buttonwood Harbor community across the bayou in the Bay Isles area of the gated Longboat Key Club. To take full advantage of its charming location at 3320 Gulf of Mexico Drive, this condominium was developed as a well laid-out cluster of low-rise townhouses basking amid a refreshing backdrop of well-manicured lawns and lovely gardens.

The amenities in the complex are quintessential of upscale bayfront Longboat condos for sale. Longboat Arms features boat docks and ramps for canoes and kayaks as well as storage racks for these vessels. Other onsite facilities include a clubhouse, a heated pool and tennis courts. Deeded beach access across the street comes as another hook for buying interest on Longboat Arms condos for sale.
