Property Description

40 FEET of DIRECT WATERFRONT VIEWS of Sarasota Bay from EVERY room! This updated CORNER PENTHOUSE offers the LARGEST square footage available within Windward Bay, the QUIETEST setting in the complex, and the MOST ACCESSIBILITY to the WATER for kayaking, grilling, dining, or sitting by the fire pit. From the enclosed terrace, owners enjoy a front row seat to the theater of nature in this wildlife sanctuary. The SUN RISES daily over the water. This PROTECTED MANGROVE COVE of Sarasota Bay serves as an estuary that is teeming with wildlife. Because of the abundant fish, it attracts feeding dolphins and tropical birds, and the rich beds of sea grass draw in one of the most special creatures we have here- the Florida Manatee. (Interested buyers can request video footage captured on location!) This 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo offers 1545 sq ft. The kitchen space has been transformed into the open island concept- providing a lovely flow to the dining and living space. This openness not only enables you to see the views as you cook, it also makes the entire living space brighter with the inclusion of the natural light from multiple, large picture windows. Since one of the windows faces directly west; you can also experience the nightly sunsets as the beach is just across the street. Granite countertops show off the beautiful rich grains of natural stone. The island is a focal point and provides ample counter space, as well as built-in island seating for 4. It is equipped with lots of storage and soft-close cabinetry. The super-sized Owner’s Suite offers glass sliders that enable you to take in the water views from bed. The enlarged owner’s bath has dual sinks, a spacious shower with beautiful tile craftsmanship including a storage niche and pebble floor. A large walk-in closet has been incorporated into the room as well as an en-suite laundry closet with washer/dryer hook-ups. Guest room also has unobstructed water views from bed, dual closets, and an office nook. Second full bath with a tub is conveniently right off the main living and guest room. The beautiful grain of porcelain floors carries through the kitchen, hallway and bathrooms. This unit has its own private storage closet and one assigned COVERED parking spot under the building. Uncrowded and crystal sandy beaches of Longboat Key on the Gulf of Mexico are just across the street. Windward Bay offers THREE BEACH ACCESS POINTS with the closest beach access just a 3 minute walk. This is in the southernmost building of the complex which means it is most removed from the hubbub of the community, and because it is situated as the end unit, you also have closest access to the waterfront amenities. Directly down the stairs you can launch your kayak into the water and paddle out. There is also the community BBQ and outdoor waterfront eating spaces along with two firepits. Windward Bay is a community encompassing 26 acres and ½ mile of waterfront trails on mid-Longboat Key. Additional amenities within the complex include 2 tennis/pickleball courts, 2 marinas with 28 boat & jet ski slips for a low monthly fee (waitlist), 2 heated pools, shuffleboard, bike racks, a clubhouse with kitchen, library, fitness room, meeting room, and 2 saunas.
