Its breathtaking gulf-to-bay location makes Bayport Beach & Tennis Club one of the most sought-after condo properties in Longboat Key. Laid out perfectly on the block of 3850 Gulf of Mexico Drive, Bayport sits nearly mid-key and thus enjoy proximity both to Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
This property occupies 27 acres masterfully developed to include 17 townhouse-type buildings with a total of 136 condos. There’s a modern and contemporary feel to these residences, as their buildings were deftly rendered in the chic mid-20th century style of the internationally acclaimed Sarasota School of Architecture.
This architectural style derives the most out of Bayport’s awe-inspiring Gulf Coast location. The townhouse buildings of Bayport feature large windows, big boxy open spaces, and roof overhangs, all tailor-fit for the property’s semi-tropical environment.
Idyllic Community Environment
As endearing to prospective buyers of Bayport condos for sale, this complex was developed with two lakes and lush greenbelts. Nature trails also loop around the property’s bayfront, enabling residents a closer look at the herons, bald eagles, ospreys and other birds that frequently visit this place.
Bayport provides a slew of facilities for various leisure activities. Besides its four tennis courts, this condominium has a large, heated swimming pool, fishing pier, kayak launch, and boat storage. It has fully equipped fitness center too, in addition to a clubhouse which holds regular social activities and special events. Westward across the street, Bayport provides a 1,200-foot private beach that extends northward and southward to miles of a pristine coastline.
Single-family Home Feel
There are three basic floor plans on Bayport condos for sale, and this could range in total floor areas of between 1,414 and 2,186 square feet in two- or three-bedroom designs. Prime among these are those larger single-story end units with price quotes currently edging up near the $700s. Current pricing for the smaller condos located in two-story townhouses is trending around the $400s.
Each Bayport condo unit exudes the ambiance of a single family home, given their private decks and gardens. As desirable, all Bayfront condos for sale have a private entrance and a covered carport with storage space.
Abundant Area Attractions
Bayport condos for sale, in addition, are convenient to local hubs of life and leisure activities. Bayfront Park, for instance, is just a short walk north of this property. Notably, this park is on the final stages of a $3.5 million makeover, and in January 2017, it is expected to inaugurate new amenities, such as a covered pavilion with grill, picnic area, and separate parks for big and small dogs.
On the norther end of the island at Longbeach Village, plenty of cultural activities can be enjoyed at the Longboat Key Center of the Arts. The Village is also home to two fine waterfront restaurants—the iconic Mar Vista and the Shore which replaced the old Moore’s Stone Crab. More commercial offerings are available with a short trip south at the Shoppes at Bay Isles and onward to St. Armands Circle and downtown Sarasota, strong come-ons that further enhance the marketability of Bayport condos.
