Welcome to the only residence in L’Elegance transformed into a truly open floor plan with floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall panoramic water views. Just open the door and feast your eyes on year-round blue skies, coastal waterways and the downtown Sarasota skyline. Fabulous. Add the quiet south Lido Key location with the beach in your backyard and lively shopping, dining and nightlife on St. Armands Circle just 1.5 miles down the road, and you’ve got the ideal island lifestyle. Completely remodeled in October 2020, this 1,980 square foot residence has three bedrooms, all with balcony access and en-suite baths. Everything is new, new, new. Classic wood flooring and coastal hues harmonize with elegant style for a tailored yet free-spirited lifestyle. Luxury appointments include engineered hardwood floors, solid-wood cabinetry, leathered granite countertops, crown molding, solid-core doors, high-end kitchen, built-in bar with wine refrigerator, modern ceiling fans and an expansive balcony with glass railing. The master bedroom features a walk-in closet and exquisite bath with dual sinks, jetted tub and walk-in shower with rain shower, steam spa, body sprays and adjustable shower spray. The open kitchen has 180-degree views and features Bosch appliances, an eat-in counter and a hammered stainless sink with a professional pull-down faucet. An in-unit laundry room has a full-size washer and dryer. L’Elegance is a gated community located directly on 400 feet of beachfront on Lido Key. Resort amenities include gated entry with a full-time attendant, porte-cochere, grand lobby, two Har-Tru tennis courts, fitness room, men’s and women’s locker rooms with saunas and social room. The heated, beachside pool is the largest on the island and includes two 25-meter lap lanes. The pool area also features a heated spa and wading pool. Other amenities include underground secure parking, onsite maintenance staff and wireless internet access throughout the common areas. L’Elegance is home to an active social community that organizes social events for its residents such as sunset cocktail parties (in season) and annual tennis tournaments. Quiet location across from South Lido Park nature preserve, yet close to in-town amenities. Just 1.5 miles to world-famous St. Armands Circle, and only four miles to downtown Sarasota. Live well on the beach at L’Elegance.
