Sutton Place Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Florida 34228

Sutton Place

Originally known as Longboat Harbour South when it was developed in the early 1970s, Sutton Place is a small community consisting of a mix of midrise condos, villas and townhouses totaling 80 units. It rose within an 8.4-acre land parcel at 4300 Gulf of Mexico Drive near the mid-section of Longboat Key.

The Sutton Place complex lies on the Sarasota Bay side of Gulf of Mexico Drive, a choice location for Longboat Key condos for sale. Besides having a bayside site, this condominium in addition has deeded beach access across the street.

The development of Sutton Place came as part of a series of projects in the 1970s that launched Longboat Key condos for sale among the prime offerings in the Sarasota real estate market. These pioneer condominiums in the island include the community’s former namesakes—the main Longboat Harbour, Longboat Harbour Towers and Longboat Harbour North (now Windward Bay). Sutton Place adopted its current name in 1983, thus doing away with confusing identities among these developments.

Waterfront charm

Sutton Place

Sutton Place condos for sale, being among the forerunners that ushered in the growth of the Longboat Key property market, have been developed along with all the bells and whistles to draw prospective buyers to the island. Two lovely swimming pools have been incorporated into the complex as fitting add-ons to the property’s waterfront setting. A ten-slip marina with boat docks and kayak storage has also been made available to condo residents for a nominal fee.

Lush tropical landscaping, one of the most well maintained on the island, embrace the Sutton Place complex. The meticulous maintenance of the property includes judicious facility upgrades. These recent updates include a makeover of the community’s clubhouse for a new modern look and the installation of a 60-inch flat-screen TV and free Wi-Fi.

Likewise, a new seawall has been constructed along with the installation of a marina webcam, new boat tie-ups and new lighting fixtures. Across Gulf of Mexico Drive, a new gate has been installed at the property’s parking spaces on the deeded private beachfront where the amenities include a pavilion, lockers, showers and benches.

Retirees’ haven

Sutton Place

Decades after its development, Sutton Place has evolved into a close-knit community. Many of those who bought units here are retirees from the north who chose to become full-time residents of Longboat Key. As a result, available Sutton Place condos for sale are often sparse in MLS listings. Typically, though, these sales-listings have floor plans of between 1,000 and 1,500 square feet, featuring one to three bedrooms and asking prices in the high $200s.

Better be prepared for a bidding war on an available Sutton Place unit at this price point. Longboat Key condos for sale within this range are quite attractive not only to retirees but also to rental property investors and snowbirds seeking seasonal vacation homes.

It comes as no surprise that this relatively small condominium development should draw interest from such a diverse group of prospective buyers. Sutton Place, after all, enjoys the advantage of being ahead in the field, holding fort close to all the facilities that have installed Longboat Key as a prime choice for a vacation home as well as a leading U.S. destination for domestic and international tourists.
