Sunrise Shores Condos for Sale – Longboat Key, Sarasota, Florida 34228

Sunrise Shores

An open house at Sunrise Shores, should one arise, would be one great opportunity to jumpstart a search for Longboat Key condos for sale. A visit here will take prospective Sarasota real estate buyers to the middle of the 12-mile Longboat Key in a cozy nook at 5220 Gulf of Mexico Drive fronting Sarasota Bay.

Sunrise Shores is a small but well-established community whose first (and largest) unit was developed sometime in 1959 with subsequent development of its other condos following in the early 1980s. This condominium is comprised of just eight units with floor areas ranging from 1,145 square feet to 3,193 square feet, featuring either two or three bedrooms. The estimated price points of these residences start from the $300s and top at over $1 million.

Exciting condo interiors

Sunrise Shores

In early 2014, a two-bedroom, 1,145-square-foot Sunshine Shores unit was sold at the low $300s level, its buyer definitely convinced on the enticing features that this bay-front residential development flaunts compared to other Longboat Key condos for sale.

The choice units in this condominium offer within their living/dining areas the bay-front’s panorama, an extravagant vista which partially extends to the masters bedrooms. Additionally, these units were designed with enclosed terraces, thereby adding to the condos’ living areas. Other distinctive features of these Sunshine Shores residences include remodeled kitchens, ceramic tile floors, granite countertops and updated appliances.

Masterful exterior renditions

Sunrise Shores

Sunshine Shores’ masterpiece is its first unit built in 1959. This condo leaves a lasting first impression with its creatively rendered courtyard entrance. The design of this unit makes full use of natural lighting through its numerous windows and French doors which invite the outside in. The splendid water views that this condo generously offers are enhanced by its high open-beam vaulted ceilings. A natural stone fireplace and a covered private pool are also among the many charms of this unit.

The exteriors and amenities at Sunshine Shores exemplify the superior features that buyers look for in prime Longboat Key condos for sale. The condominium’s landscaping is exquisite and well-maintained, flaunting lush masts of Australian pine trees and exuberant tropical greeneries. In addition, the condo’s residents have a deeded private beach access, a heated community pool, boat dock and under-building parking.

Earning from rentals

All these engaging features combine to groom a unit at Sunshine Shores not only as a vacation home but also as a rental property. Moreover, rental income potential is fostered by the condominium’s short one-month minimum lease policy. Notably, this condominium’s immediate neighborhood is the domain of rental condos, including units at White Sands of Longboat and the sister developments Covert I, II and III.

That condo rentals thrive in Sunshine Shores’ locality is but logical. Besides the Gulf Coast and bay-front attractions, this neighborhood is also conveniently located near Longboat Key’s other attractions. Just north of Sunshine Shores, for instance, are The Centre Shops and some of the island’s leading gourmet restaurants. Close too are the Bay front Park Recreation Center and Bay Isles with its Publix Super Market and public tennis courts.

Life and leisure possibilities are likewise abundant around the historic Longbeach Village and at Anna Maria Island. A station of the MCAT (Manatee County Area Transit) trolley service is just in front of Sunrise Shores to facilitate short and easy trips to these local attractions.
