Embassy House in Sarasota is a well-established condominium tower located in the southwestern corner of the Laurel Park district, a part of town commonly known as Marina Row. This building has the distinction of being one of the first high-rise condo towers in Sarasota; construction dates back to the mid-1970s, but it has been regularly renovated over the years. With listings offered below $600K in early 2020, Embassy House is a very attractive option for home buyers looking for the best views of the Sarasota Bay.
Although Embassy House is an imposing tower of 17 levels, there are only 68 units, and they feature more living space than what you would normally find in Marina Row. A two-bedroom unit with two full bathrooms, for example, offers 1,397 square feet of interior on the 16th floor. The best panoramic views of the Sarasota Bay start at the 7th level, and this is where a 1,516 square feet unit with an enclosed balcony was listed for $575K in January. Once you go higher, you not only get more square footage but also better views of the Sarasota Keys and the Gulf of Mexico.
Residents of the units that face the Sarasota skyline can still enjoy sunsets and bayfront views from the heated swimming pool area, which was recently remodeled along with the lobby, clubhouse, and fitness center. Since the homeowners association insists upon hurricane-grade construction features, you will find that all units have been upgraded with shutters. Homeowners are allowed two feline pets per unit, but no dogs.
A small restaurant district just blocks away from Embassy House offers many dining options such as Fresh Start Cafe, Amore, and Owens Fish Camp. The two landmark restaurants of Marina Row, Oleary’s and Marina Jack, are just a short bike ride away. You can actually walk to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens across Bayfront Drive, and you can choose between Publix and Whole Foods since it will only take you about a five-minute drive to shop for groceries. The closest beaches are at Longboat Key, but you can also drive about 10 minutes south to the more popular Siesta Key.
