About 1750 Benjamin Franklin Drive 5c

Lido Beach residence with wide-open beach, Gulf and sunset views. Blue skies, white sand beach, turquoise water, year-round-sunshine...fall in love with the Florida island lifestyle! Nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay, Key Towers South sits on a prime piece of waterfront on south Lido Key. Lido Beach is your back yard. Just a quarter mile south is South Lido Key Park with outdoor activities and a soon-to-come multi-use recreational trail at Ted Sperling Park. One mile north is world-renowned St. Armand’s Circle with posh shopping, dining and nightlife. This fifth-floor, full-Gulf front residence has two bedrooms with ensuite baths, bonus room, great room, kitchen and dining room. High-end details include Nordic Brazilian Oak engineered hardwood floors, solid-wood cabinetry, granite countertops, and remodeled kitchen and baths. The residence was only occupied one month per year, so it has experienced minimal use and presents as freshly remodeled. A shared utility room on the floor has an assigned storage locker, as well as large-capacity washer and dryer. If you prefer to have an in-home laundry, hook-ups are in place for a washer/dryer in the unit. The first-floor community space features lobby, fitness room, library, and social room with kitchen for entertaining. First-floor amenities also include shower/saunas and bike rack storage. The beach-side pool area features expansive deck for enjoying the Gulf-front location. The beach life, resort life and city life unite here. On one side you have a private, gated pool by the beach. On the other, it’s just one mile to St. Armand’s Circle and only four miles over the iconic Ringling Bridge to Downtown Sarasota for more shops and restaurants, plus art galleries, farmers market and performing arts. The free Sarasota Bay Runner trolley takes you from south Lido to Downtown Sarasota with multiple stops along the way.
