Sarasota Harbour West Condos for Sale – Lido Key, Sarasota, Florida 34236

Sarasota Harbour West

Sarasota Harbour West is a property development which counts among the pioneers of the condominium concept of home ownership not only in Sarasota but also in the entire state of Florida. This community, designed for age 55-plus residents, came about following the passage of the Sunshine State’s Condominium Act in 1963, a legislation which helped spark a boom in Sarasota/Lido Key condos for sale in ensuing years.

Sarasota Harbour West consists of some 90 units. It was the brainchild of developer Irving Z. Mann who immediately set in motion the development of the property starting with the community’s clubhouse in 1963 after the condominium law’s approval. The eventual growth in popularity of condo homes, especially among snowbirds and retirees from northern U.S., prompted the development’s expansion to a nearby sister community, Sarasota Harbour East, in 1965.

Premier location

Sarasota Harbour West

These twin developments’ success in the market for Sarasota condos for sale owes much to the property’s prime location at the western stretch of John Ringling Blvd. Just a short walk to the west is the St. Armands Circle, a hub for chic shops and popular restaurants. Similarly, a short drive to the east leads to Sarasota’s downtown district wherein life and leisure venues sure are aplenty.

Also, Sarasota Harbour’s condo units overlook Sarasota Bay toward north, enabling their residents to enjoy superb bayviews particularly during winter. At this time of the year, the winter sun generally shines from the south behind the condominium complex, thus brightly illuminating the bay and the Ken Thompson Park across the water.

Meticulously built and maintained

Sarasota Harbour West

Dredging and filling created the land on which Sarasota Harbour was built. The deep water channels that resulted from these development activities enabled the construction of private docks wherein sailboats can move right in.

Besides this private boat facility, the condominium complex is also flanked by a seawall with a sidewalk almost 2,000 feet long and best suited for walking and jogging. Additionally, the community has storage for kayaks, a newly renovated swimming pool and well-maintained landscaping.

Maintenance is as efficient in the eight residential buildings of the twin Sarasota Harbour developments. Built as concrete and stucco structures with three floors, these buildings sport new metal roofs. Many of the condo units have had recent makeovers and their plumbing redone.

Condos worth the wait

There aren’t too many Sarasota Harbor West units listed among Sarasota or Lido Key condos for sale, largely because most of their owners consider them worth holding for the long-term. However, keeping a patient watch of residences in this condo that become available in the Sarasota real estate market can be quite rewarding, as typically, these units are being sold at very attractive price levels.

The asking prices of sales-listed units at this condominium can be quoted around the high $300s. The typical floor area for such residences is around 816 square feet, featuring two bedrooms and one bath, plus new appliances.

Smaller Sarasota Harbor West condos for sale with approximately 612 square feet of floor space are among the prized finds in the Sarasota real estate market. Designed with a single bedroom, one such residence was sold at a very affordable price around the mid-$100s sometime in early 2014.
