Of the four major barrier islands of Sarasota County, Longboat Key is considered to be the most desirable for home buyers. You are virtually guaranteed to find waterfront properties in this housing market because Longboat Key is a narrow island where homes face the Gulf of Mexico to the west and Sarasota Bay on the opposite side. Sutton Place is located on the bay side of the island, and it is an elegant condominium where you can find spacious two-bedroom units for as low as $315K.
Despite being located right in the middle of Longboat Key and along Gulf of Mexico Drive, you can drive right past it and miss the stylish condos, townhouses, and amenities that make Sutton Place a great place to live. A fully grown greenbelt section separates this community from the main road, thus enhancing privacy and making it seem hidden. The contemporary architectural style of Sutton Place, which was developed in the 1980s, gives the neighborhood additional curb appeal.
Sutton Place packs a lot of comfort and amenities within its six acres. Aside from the 80 units, there are two heated swimming pools, a large sun deck with a pavilion and BBQ grill, a kayak launch, and even a small marina where the docking fees will cost you just $300 per year. The upper levels of the condos and two-story townhouses provide nice views of mangrove islands and the Sarasota Bay.
Wit the Bay Isles shopping center just a few minutes to the south, Sutton Place residents do not have too many reasons to leave the island. Bay Isles is anchored by a GreenWise Publix supermarket where you can find gourmet and organic groceries; there’s also a drugstore, banks, shops, restaurants, and even a post office. The beach, which is within walking distance, has a private section for Sutton Place homeowners and their guests. For even more shopping and entertainment, the Longboat Key Club offers a seaside golf course and numerous tennis courts. Lido Key and the trendy St. Armands Circle are just a couple of miles away.
