Longboat Terrace

Longboat Terrace is a small condo community located at 5393 Gulf of Mexico Drive edging toward the northern tip of the 12-mile stretch of Longboat Key. It is composed of some 36 townhouse-type two-story condos built during the late 1970s. The units’ floor plans range from 1,300 to 1,956 square feet, designed with two or three bedrooms.

This condominium is a cozy complex and quite impressive for even the most discriminating searchers of Longboat Key condos for sale. Longboat Terrace at once creates a homey first impression with its well-manicured, lush landscaping, an apt complement to the condominium’s eye-pleasing architectural design accented by barrel-style tile roofs.

In-house amenities

Longboat Terrace

The views from the complex and the residences are as impressive, with the property situated adjacent to the coastline of the Gulf of Mexico. Brick paver pathways and a small footbridge link the Longboat Terrace residences to the nearby powdery white sand beach.

A relaxing walk in this tranquil shoreline invites a segue to a dip in the gulf’s turquoise waters. Swimming is just as fine at the well-maintained private pool at Longboat Terrace, which was also meticulously designed amid quaint landscaping. Its wide deck was thoughtfully furnished with loungers, tables umbrellas and chairs.

Neighborhood offerings

Longboat Terrace

Unlike many waterfront Longboat Key condos for sale, Longboat Terrace doesn’t have dock or boat slips. Nonetheless, such facilities and boat rentals are easily accessible in many nearby establishments such as the Cannons Marina just a short distance north of the condominium.

Local stores and dining places are even nearer. Just across the Gulf of Mexico Drive from Longboat Terrace is The Centre Shops which is home not only to shops and restaurants but also to service providers. The tenant mix here includes the UPS Store, Steff’s Stuff, the seafood restaurant Lazy Lobster, The Blue Dolphin and Ciao! Italia. Also holding fort at The Centre Shops are David Gregory Salon, Longboat Key Cabinetry Studio, Exotica Florist, the Education Center, Longboat Key Cleaners and Linen as well as the offices of Longboat Key News.

Just as convenient, one of the trolley stops for buses plying the northbound and southbound routes in and out of Longboat Key is located right in front of Longboat Terrace. Through this bus stop, commuters can go northward up to Coquina Beach in Manatee and southward for the downtown Sarasota transfer station. For residents of Longboat Terrace, nonetheless, a trip to the city center may not be that often since various lifestyle alternatives are already available nearby. Among these are the various establishments around Longboat Key’s Bayside Isles Parkway and St. Armands Circle.

A market sampling

It is those aspiring buyers of Longboat Terrace condos for sale, however, who may need to touch base more often with a Sarasota property broker or agent. This is because sales listings in this condominium come rarely, and available units can be sold quickly due to their prime values and high potential for appreciation.

A two-bedroom unit with a floor area of 1,300 square feet, for instance, was sold in 2016 at a closing price in the low $500s. Estimated value of this property at current market conditions is now in the high $500s.
