Condo

Built in 1980

One or more photo(s) has been virtually staged. This beautiful 2bedroom 2bath condo is in extremely desirable Lido Towers on Ben Franklin Drive, across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. If location, location, location is what you desire, this unit has it in spades! Not only is it a North tower, 4th floor corner unit with wrap around balcony, but it faces west for some of the most incredible evening sunsets. This remarkable condo is totally unfurnished, and ready for you to make it exactly into the home of your dreams.. And there is private deeded access across the street directly to the sandy Gulf of Mexico and beach just a three minute walk away. And for you who are patient, you will soon see from your lanai, the manicured entrance of the soon to be built, world renowned Rosewood residence. Not only does this condo have a large open living room dining room area, but it also has an eat-in kitchen that overlooks a large pool and hot tub, as well as the Gulf of Mexico and even further South, a view towards Ted Spuring Park and Siesta Key. But that's not all. There are two washers and two dryers (!) on every floor, and this unit also has its own dedicated, covered carport space and an inside 4th floor storage unit. We are across the street from an easy access kayak launch, and several steps away from the Ritz Carlton tiki bar. On the first floor of Lido Towers is your mailroom, 2 community BBQ's as well as carts to make it more convenient to bring luggage and carloads of groceries to your unit. There is a rental office, and a building manager that make your life much easier. Owners are allowed to rent their unit for 30 day periods. And without doubt, one of the main advantages of this location is that it is minutes away from St. Armand Circle, with its many restaurants and shops. Don't miss checking out this unit and considering it for your very own private Paradise.
