800 Benjamin Franklin Dr #702, Sarasota

This beachfront apartment on the penthouse level offers a fantastic opportunity to build equity and to create your own design for a condominium residence. It is all about location and a floor plan that offer gulf views from the living area and both bedrooms. Enjoy cocktails on your beachfront balcony or next door at the Tiki Bar for Lido Key’s best happy hour. Just steps from the white sands of Lido Key, this island retreat is ideal for escaping the cold, enjoying long weekends on the beach, or simply immersing yourself in the relaxed lifestyle on a barrier island. The Lido Ambassador is a very well kept, secure building, with many amenities. There is a storage room down the hall, washers and dryers on every floor, (a private hookup in this apartment), a large community center with full kitchen, men’s and ladies workout rooms, and of course a private heated pool right on the beach! Once you have enjoyed the warm gulf waters, St. Armand’s Circle is just a walk away where boutiques, restaurants, and ice cream shops enliven every afternoon. Downtown Sarasota is just over the bridge with its array of arts and culture. This residence represents a fantastic value as one of the least expensive condominiums available on the beach side of Lido Key.
