Hey Roger. Mary Kay, here we are in a beautiful listing at the Beaches of Longboat Key. At the Beaches. Really great building, really great location. You know, the funny thing I think you and I started in Longboat around the same time. When I came here in 1983 out of college and this building was built in 1984. And kind of little fun fact, it was the developer was the Dutch Pension Fund. They also did the development downtown 888 and 898, those two very large buildings. Right, right. And originally this was going to be four, really I mean it architecturally from the outside it's a really cool building. It's got nice angles and curved terraces, and there were actually gonna be four of them. And the Dutch Pension Fund, I guess they experimented with Sarasota real estate projects and didn't love them as much. I know that 888 and 898 took a lot longer than they thought to build. And so they sold out this building and then they ended up selling the other land, part of which has become just this great free space. Kind of between Regent Court, the single-family homes, and the Beaches. So you have a lot of parking, that was meant for more than one building. So it's really turned out to be a great thing for all the people that were the first owners in the Beaches. And you're behind the gates of the Longboat Key Club, which is the highly coveted location. And there's something that's always been great about the beach here. It's always, you know, one of the widest points of the south end beach. I don't know, you know how that lined up in the cosmos that that would be. But it is, right? Right, so you've got that, you've got views. Like this listing that we have as northern sunset views, as well as downtown and golf course views. Gorgeous bay views as well. And you know, they were highly amenitized within the residences. You know, marble bathrooms, great wall space. A lot of the floor plans here have really art galleries, even in effect. Most of the residences now have new windows with hurricane glass, which is great. And then the amenities of the building of course. I mean to have hour security concierge service. Really, really, good. And you know, if you know Jim, he's been here forever. Greatest concierge on Longboat. And then you have this great covered parking, you have tennis courts on top of the parking, which is kind of fun. Swimming pool, movie stars. Yeah, very excited about this new listing. We would love to show it to you. Please visit us at Beaches705.com, or call us at (941) 387-1840 for a private showing. Thanks so much for joining us this week on REALTALK™.
