One of the nicest sunset views on the Gulf of Mexico might be from one of the residences at the Promenade. This amenity-rich community is primed for the luxury lifestyle that makes Longboat Key a popular destination as a second home or a retirement domicile. On the southern end of the island, Promenade is a high rise with 112 residences in a variety of 10 different floor plans starting at 1,585 square feet of living space.

Add to that penthouse floor plans and choices increase. My penthouse listing at 1211 Gulf of Mexico Dr, #904 takes it to the next level and offers Gulf-to-bay views so you have the added attraction of Sarasota skylines. One of my favorite words in real estate is updated and this residence has plenty of updates with high end finishes. It is a three bedroom home with three and a half baths and an expansive living area of 2,612 square feet. Add two terrace areas and this residence is sure to please.

Promenade has some of the finest set of amenities in the area. A Gulf-front pool deck and spa offers a nice area for entertaining guests. The grilling areas and gazebo make for some attractive areas to sit and relax with friends and family.

When it’s time for a more active day jump in the heated swimming pool or take a stroll down to the beach edge over the dunes and the boardwalk that takes you to the Gulf. There are also four Har-tru tennis courts on the grounds of Promenade that sprawls over six and one half acres of land. The fitness center has excellent equipment to help tone your body with men’s and women’s health facilities. You are also close to either of the two Longboat Key Club championship golf courses and a membership is a very desirable complement to the recreation facilities at the Promenade.

For security, there is a 24/7 manned guard gate and the on-site management team is there to offer a pleasing response to most of your needs. The clubhouse has a game room, catering kitchen and library. A concierge on staff will help you plan your days to maintain an active lifestyle, available weekdays and Saturdays. The on-site maintenance and housekeeping staff will be able to assist with light duties around your home.

Some purchases at the Promenade are intended as rentals and are restricted to a three month minimum and twice a year. Approximately 25 percent of the residents are there year round and neighborhood friendships can strike up quite quickly.

Promenade is close to the grocery shopping of the Publix or the many fine dining and shopping areas offered at St. Armands Circle. And of course the center of cultural arts in Sarasota provides concerts, ballet, opera and orchestra performances, accessible over the Ringling Causeway and Bridge.

I have more information on Promenade including the new Comparative Market Analysis for March that includes a history of CMAs back to the year 2012.

I have many listings on the beach including the penthouse here at Promenade. I added two more homes last week that may be of interest. The first is in the Fairway Bay community, 1930 Harbourside Dr, #141. This two bedroom, two bath residence is offered with access to the Bay Isles Beach Cub. On the northern end of Longboat Key is a residence listing in the Sea Twig community at 5645 Gulf of Mexico Dr, #202, which can be an ideal beach getaway or rental opportunity. Please contact me at (941) 387-1840 if you have a property to sell or buy.
