Live directly ON the beach! You won't find any condos closer to the water than this spectacular 3rd floor end unit in First Lido, mere steps away from the Gulf of Mexico. It has full, direct views of the Gulf to the West and an incredible view up the beach to the North as well. End units like this one RARELY come available here - you'll understand why as soon as you step through the door to see and hear the waves breaking just outside the windows. You'll enjoy stunning unimpeded sunset views over the Gulf of Mexico year round as well as long, wide open views up the best beach in Florida as of 2024, per Reader's Digest. The condo features an updated kitchen and bathrooms, an open floorplan, impact glass windows and a large sunroom overlooking the powdery white sand of Lido Key Beach. The sunroom is the perfect place to enjoy coffee in the morning (keep an eye out for the dolphins) or a drink in the evening while you watch the sunset over the horizon. Even the view from the primary bedroom is amazing. First Lido was the first condo complex built on Lido Key Beach, which means a premier location almost on top of the water with the best views on the island. The community features a beachfront heated pool, clubhouse and grilling area. You'll be 5 minutes from all the shops and restaurants at St. Armands Circle, and will have easy access to South Lido County Park (.2 mi) and Ted Sperling Nature Park (.7 mi), where you can kayak and paddleboard through the mangrove tunnels. The Lido Beach Tiki Bar is 1/3 mile up the beach as well! This location truly can't be beat. Call today for your private showing!
