Firehouse Lane at Conrad Beach Real Estate for Sale – Longboat Key, Sarasota, Florida 34228

Firehouse Lane

Aspiring home buyers passionate about purchase opportunities in seaside communities should not miss out on available Sarasota homes for sale at Firehouse Lane. Located at the northern tip of the 12-mile Longboat Key, this neighborhood is part of the award-winning seaside community of Conrad Beach which is composed of just 27 residences.

The highly regarded trade magazine Coastal Living was so impressed by the features of this subdivision that it named Conrad Beach as Coastal Community of the Year for 2001. Indeed, this community can hold its own compared with the other beachfront housing developments along the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf shores of North America that the publication covers along with those in the Great Lakes, Hawaii, Alaska, coastal Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean Islands.

Well-landscaped, less densely developed property

Firehouse Lane

With their lush tropical landscaping, Firehouse Lane and the entire Conrad Beach community could at once impress first-time visitors and would-be buyers of Longboat Key homes for sale. The subdivision was developed meticulously under the seaside village concept, with all the residences just a short stroll away from the tranquil white-sand beach and the warm, blue Gulf waters. Extensive walk paths were also built to complement the lush foliage of the community’s well-maintained and secured perimeter.

Besides having deeded beach access, the residents of the subdivision enjoy maintenance-free living as lawn upkeep and irrigation are covered by the homeowners’ association fee. Set at a reasonable level, this fee also covers the costs of maintaining the community’s clubhouse, swimming pool, basic cable TV and security monitoring.

Being within a less densely developed subdivision, Firehouse Lane offers limited choices of available Sarasota homes for sale. The typical residences available here and in Conrad Beach are spec homes built recently and priced in the million-dollar range, featuring three to four bedrooms within floor plans ranging from 2,500 to 2,900 square feet. In resale offerings, a two-bedroom 1,960-square-foot home built in the early 2000s in this community can be priced in the $800s.

Great location both ways

Firehouse Lane

The varied collection of geographic amenities which make Longboat Key homes for sale so attractive are within easy reach from Firehouse Lane and the Conrad Beach community. Just off north of their locality is the Longboat Pass draw bridge which is an entry point to the adjacent Anna Maria Island. This island is home to various attractions besides its beach and the Bradenton Beach and Holmes Beach at the Anna Maria shoreline. Pine Avenue, on the island’s northern tip, offers a quaint village teeming with shops, cafés and leisurely diversions.

Beer Can Island, a curved white powdered sandbar, is also just a short boat ride away west of Firehouse Lane and Conrad Beach. Also called Greer Island Park, it was formed by tidal currents and offers a quiet, quarter-of-a-mile beach for fishing, bird watching and sunbathing.

Southbound trips to even more life and leisure venues are as easy at Gulf of Mexico Drive (State Road 789) just east of the Firehouse Lane neighborhood. A short drive through this road leads to nearby golf courses, marina, boat ramp, tennis courts and shopping centers.

Public transportation by trolley buses to and from the St. Armands Circle commercial hub and the Sarasota downtown is readily accessible. Southbound and northbound bus stops are only a block away from Conrad Beach.
