Enjoy the beach life from this second-floor, Gulf-front condominium on Lido Key in Sarasota, Florida. Nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay, Lido Regency is the perfect place to take advantage of Sarasota’s famous quartz-crystal powdery sand and turquoise waters. You can also walk to Ted Sperling Park and paddle through its beautiful mangrove tunnels to Sarasota Bay. This spacious 1,492-square-foot newly remodeled condominium has two bedrooms, two baths, Florida room and an open kitchen/great room/dining combination. The open living areas take advantage of the great views and are completely separate from the private bedrooms. The kitchen features a large welcoming island with additional storage and room for seating. Luxury touches include solid-wood cabinetry with soft-close mechanisms, granite countertops and newly updated appliances. A shared utility room on the floor has an assigned storage locker, as well as washer and dryer. The first-floor community space was recently remodeled and features floor-to-ceiling windows in the lobby, fitness gym and social room. First-floor amenities also include shower/changing rooms, outdoor grills and kayak/paddleboard storage. The beachside pool area features a newly resurfaced heated pool/spa along with all-new pool furniture. Lido Regency is a fully funded condominium with an active social lifestyle. This peaceful retreat is the perfect spot to unwind and relax by the beach. You can literally roll out of bed, ride down the elevator and step out onto the white sands of Lido Beach. 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 the shops and restaurants of St. Armands Circle, and only four miles over the Ringling Bridge to downtown Sarasota for more shops and restaurants, plus art galleries, farmers market and performing arts. Life is good on the beach!
