Situated in a premium location just off Lido Key’s St. Armands Circle is this tastefully appointed and fully furnished, two-bedroom, two-bath condo with European flair and an open-air balcony with peek-a-boo views of the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy days at the beach, right across the street, with easy deeded beach access. You can even pop back to the condominium for lunch or a respite from the sun. Enjoy incredible sunsets at the beach. Then, stop at the Tiki bar right on the way back after sunset for a refreshing beverage. Enjoy the awesome colors of the sunset from your open-air balcony. Inside, you’ll find a tastefully updated kitchen equipped with every accessory to help with cooking on those evenings you don’t want to scoot over to St. Armands Circle to satisfy your discerning palate. At the condominium, feast in your quaint dining room. Enjoy friends and family evenings entertaining in the open floor plan and large living area/dining area. Sleep in the Gulf breezes in the amply sized owner’s retreat with walk-in closet and adjacent bath. The second bedroom is separated and has use of the second bath. The Presidential, most commonly known as Lido Presidential, is a small community consisting of just 40 condominium homes, meticulously cared for with beautiful grounds, a courtyard garden and a barbecue for outdoor grilling by the pool. There is also a handy laundry room with a library for sharing books. Walk across the street to the beach for an evening stroll and head around the corner to the renowned St. Armands Circle for dinner at any of the tantalizing restaurants. Shopping is bountiful with all the boutique shops. Enjoy Kilwins ice cream and delectable desserts. There is never a dull moment here with entertainment for all on the Circle including music, art shows, monthly events, etc. Just over the Lido bridge is downtown Sarasota, the heart of its cultural mecca with restaurants, waterfront dining, shops, cafes, a weekly farmers market, regular street fairs and art fairs, and Sarasota’s beautiful Bayfront Park. As an investment, you’ll likely have repeat guests as you can rent one month minimum, twice per year. See REALTOR® Remarks for bookings already in place. Come for the respite. Stay for the peace.
