For those who love the island life, condominium living may just be the best way to go. With tended grounds and terrific amenities, a condo can be a huge contributor to a life of leisure. The great thing is, thanks to the diversity of condominium types on Siesta Key alone, you don't necessarily have to be a millionaire to live there.
For instance, look at the 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo at 6157 Midnight Pass Road. Granted, with 789 square feet of living space it's not immense, but considering that it's just across the street from Crescent Beach, you've got paradise at your feet. This particular condo has been very successfully used as a seasonal rental for the last several years, so if you're looking to invest in property, this is a fantastic consideration with a proven track record. Listed at $269,000.
Of course, that's far from the only condo under a million dollars on Siesta Key. Whether you're looking to live on Siesta Key or invest in rental property, you may want to consider something a little more “Old Florida.” Built in 1968 and designed by renowned Sarasota architect Frank Folsom Smith, the 3 bedroom, 3 bath cottage at 34 Sandy Cove Road sits nestled among the lovely foliage and palm trees of a tropical wonderland, right on gorgeous Cedar Lake. This 1,906 square foot gem is part of a complex featuring a private beach and fishing pier, but the large den, breakfast room, three separate sun-decks, and a one-car garage all make this unit feel like a single-family home. And as one of the few pet-friendly communities on Siesta Key, Sandy Cove is a great place for pet parents. Listed at $599,000.
If you want to be a little closer to the action, the 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit at 305 Beach Road is just a block away from Siesta Village. Among the newest condominiums on the Key, this unit features the latest and highest-end finishes, including high ceilings, Mirage wood flooring, custom closets, European style wood cabinetry, quartz countertops, two covered terraces, and a private elevator to the living level. This 1,271 square foot home shares a garden pool with the other three units and offers exclusivity at a very nice price. Listed at $899,000.
Of course, Siesta Key also has its share of condos above a million dollars, and they're worth every penny. The views from the 4th floor unit at 1308 Old Stickney Point Road are what island life is all about. Located right on the Intracoastal Waterway, its three covered lanais offer unique perspectives in all directions. In addition to the 2,467 square feet, 3 bedrooms, and 3 baths, the complex also features a great clubhouse with heated pool, spa, outdoor grill, and fitness center. Just a short walk to public beach access #12, the location offers sublime island living. Listetd at $1,125,000.
To get even closer to the beach, you could consider the 5 bathroom, 6 bath unit at 1060 Seagrove Lane. The timeless Key-West style architecture of this two-story townhome features high ceilings, French doors, a private elevator, a courtyard pool with outdoor kitchen, and indoor/outdoor fireplaces. All bedrooms are suites with beautiful spacious bathrooms, and there is an attached 1 bedroom, 1 bath guest wing with game rooms, bar, and separate entry. With 4,610 square feet of living space, this unit also comes with a private cabana overlooking a beachside pool shared by 12 exclusive residents. Listed at $2,499,000.
For even more exclusivity (plus the feeling of a single-family home with maintenance-free surroundings only steps from the beach), the 5 bedroom, 5 bath unit at 67 Avenida Messina shares amenities with only 3 other units. The unparalleled Siesta Key location creates a walkable beach lifestyle that makes every day an indulgence. The dazzling views through abundant glass, crisp neutral tones, and a rooftop deck for sunset soirees really make this home feel like paradise. A private elevator, garage space for two cars and your boat, as well as abundant storage space all add to optimum ease of living. This unit offers the luxury that so many long for in an island living experience. Listed at $3,800,000.
