The Beaches of Longboat Key is one of several high-rise condominiums lording over the gulf front of the gated The Resort at Longboat Key Club. Located at 775 Longboat Club Road, this property was developed in 1984 by a Dutch pension fund as part of what was supposed to be a four-building community. Only one was constructed, however, and the rest of the parcel toward the north was sold.
This sold section eventually became The Regent Court, one of only two single-family home neighborhoods within the posh confines of The Resort of Longboat Key Club. Although this community made changes from its original plan, Beaches residences for sale still stood out as gems in Longboat Key’s luxury home market.
The Beaches’ residential condominium was built as a 10-story building with a modern architectural style. Its design is an eloquent expression of sleek and flowing lines that no doubt drew inspiration from the property’s magnificent beachfront site. As impressive, the community’s landscaping has been masterfully rendered, a perfect complement to the greens and fairways of the resort’s golf links just across the street east of the Beaches.
Amenities abound in this community. Besides an elegant lobby, its common areas include a club room with a catering kitchen. The Beaches also has a modern fitness center, two tennis courts, a heated beachfront swimming pool and spa. This community further exudes the personality of a luxury lifestyle in its quiet 650-foot private beach furnished with umbrellas and lounge chairs.
Much like a five-star resort, the Beaches is under a professional onsite management team which among other things provides 24-hour concierge service to residents and guests. Assigned under-building parking are provided to resident owners who can likewise rely on the Beaches’ advanced security system.
