Many home shoppers who are attracted to Southwest Florida by the many golf and tennis opportunities tend to focus their search on the mainland communities and country club in Manatee and Sarasota Counties, when they should be looking in the charming barrier island of Longboat Key first.
The Fairway Bay condominium combines the country club and resort lifestyles with the relaxing setting of an island in the Gulf of Mexico. The Fairway Bay community is located on the Sarasota Bay side of Longboat Key, slightly tucked away from the many visitors and vacationers who come to enjoy the sugary-white sandy beaches. Construction was completed in the late 1980s, and the units resemble the Mediterranean designs found in other parts of Southwest Florida that experienced a renaissance in the late 20th century.
There are 286 units at the Fairway Bay, ranging from units located within five-story condominium towers to low-rise town houses overlooking the lush landscaping and nature preserves that surround the property. Many of the units located higher up in the towers have sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico, and some units facing the east of the island have a nice vista of the Sarasota skyline.
Floor plans vary from the snug two-bedroom units built on 1,270 square feet starting at $500K, to the ample 2,550 square feet residences with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and elegant features like high ceilings, private garages and handsome terraces. These well-appointed town homes are priced around $1 million.
In terms of amenities, Fairway Bay residents have the amenities of the Longboat Key Club almost at their doorsteps. This means that they can enjoy golf, tennis, swimming, fitness, spa services, hiking, bike riding, fishing, boating, and more. There may be opportunities for golf and tennis in nearby Sarasota and Bradenton, but Fairway Bay residents can have it all right on the island.
