Residences on the Longboat Key shores

Beachplace and Grand Bay communities featured in this Home Showcase

1,450 linear feet of shoreline
Beachplace - Over 1,450 linear feet of white sand

For my Home Showcase series I am highlighting three residences on Longboat Key that are in two of my favorite communities, Grand Bay and Beachplace. They are both near the shopping center that has a Publix and CVS and they are both within an easy drive distance to St. Armands Circle and Sarasota. The wonderful amenities at both attract visitors to become buyers. They are also on opposite sides of the island, Beachplace on Gulf of Mexico shore and Grand bay on Sarasota Bay. On the bay you are awaken to wonderful sunrises and the city lights of Sarasota. On the Gulf there is plenty of white sands due to its characteristics that remains cool on the feet even in the heat of the summer.

Eleven buildings on the beach with 1,450 linear feet of shoreline

The eleven Beachplace buildings are nicely arranged for either beachfront on the Gulf of Mexico white sands, overlooking the lake with a fountain or are surrounded by lush foliage. There is easy beach access for everyone who has ownership of one of 336 units spread out over 31 acres. And if you seek solitude on a parcel of beach as your relaxation, you will likely find it on the 1,450 linear feet of shoreline.

Beachplace is a wonderfully active neighborhood, just a short bike ride away from the Longboat Key Club with its vast amenities including two championship golf courses and four fine dining restaurants. The offerings in the community make it hard for residents to leave, including a lovely clubhouse, fitness center, tennis, charming walking paths overlooking lakes and fountains, heated swimming pool and spa.
