Welcome to Longboat Cove, an intimate, quiet condo community of 26 units in two beach side buildings directly on the Gulf of Mexico, on the Manatee County side of this 10.8 mile long paradise. Offering postcard-like full beach and gulf views from the master bedroom, living/dining room, kitchen and balcony, you will be able to enjoy so many great moments soaking up the sun, surf and wildlife from your private residence. Able to easily be shown IN PERSON, VIRTUALLY, via FACETIME or the like! Move in ready, being sold fully furnished as seen, and UPDATED IN 2015 with new: bathrooms complete with granite counter tops, fixtures, new Italian marble flooring throughout (no carpeting), kitchen {stainless steel appliances, granite countertop and cabinetry}, all new doors, plantation shutters in 2nd bed and painted throughout. AC '16. Water heater '20. This property enjoys 10 foot ceilings and includes an eat in kitchen that some owners have easily converted into a private office or other flex room. Spacious open floor plan with inside laundry closet including side by side washer and dryer and shelving. But wait... don't leave your fur baby behind because you're allowed one pet up to 25lbs as well! Includes one fully secured and enclosed under building parking spot #208 and storage locker for all of your beach gear or overflow items. Also you'll notice more than ample room to store kayaks, canoes and bikes in the under building area. Take a stroll down the winding treks boardwalk where you'll stumble upon a wonderfully cozy covered pavilion area, complete with outlets, picnic table, grill, shower area and foot soak! Access to the Gulf of Mexico is just a step behind this and offers a simply stunning beach, complete with property owned chaise lounge chairs and complimentary nightly sunsets. Take advantage of the large heated pool, lit tennis court and ample open guest parking. Center shops are also nearby and offer many of the services you need from restaurants to shops. Durante Park, on 32 acres alongside Sarasota Bay, offers somewhat of a coastal forest that's complete with abundant wildlife and located within minutes of your condo. Beautiful Bayfront Park is also great for public basketball, tennis, kayak or canoe launching and convenient dog park! At Longboat Cove you'll enjoy the very well maintained grounds. Not to mention, with both the touch of a switch to close the electric hurricane shutters and a very hands and responsive onsite staff, rest assured your property will lie in great hands when you leave your dream condo behind. Easy to show this beauty so contact us today!
