The stunning Gulf views that stretch from azure waves to the calming waters of Sarasota Bay and downtown’s cityscape beyond are the highlight throughout this lovely eighth-floor residence at Orchid Beach Club. Residences in this sought-after community, located on the immaculate shores of Lido Beach, are a rarity, and its perfect proximity within walking or biking distance to St. Armands is an ideal complement to luxury waterfront living. Life at the pet-friendly Orchid Beach Club is the best of both worlds, reminiscent of a single-family lifestyle, offering two under-building parking spaces, storage just outside your front door, and a host of first-rate amenities. Inside, the private, residents only elevator opens to the home’s elevator lobby, with double doors that lead to the foyer entry. Marble flooring connects the open floor plan that features warm neutral tones, tray ceilings, plus walls of floor-to-ceiling glass sliders that ensure multiple rooms are bright and airy. Making entertaining easy and inviting, the eat-in kitchen overlooks the living/dining room, and offers granite countertops, island, breakfast bar, built-in ovens, gas cooktop and charming breakfast nook. The master comes complete with a morning bar with wine cooler, his/her walk-in closets, generous en-suite and its own access to the Gulf terrace. Two guest suites in split plan offer overnight guests the perfect amount of privacy. One guest bedroom is a showcase of breathtaking beach views and includes a walk-in closet, as well as its own devoted Gulf terrace, while the second suite offers terrace access to the main west-facing outdoor space. The largest balcony is to the east, offering well-equipped gas grilling station. This gated neighborhood was built with exceptionally high standards, boasting unmatched service, such as 24-hour security, on-site management, concierge, plus front door package pickup and delivery. There is almost no end to options for relaxation at Orchid Beach Club. Residents enjoy access to resort-style amenities, which include clubhouse with billiards room, banquet hall and social room, as well as fitness center with sauna and massage room, Gulf-front pool deck with saltwater heated swimming pool and spa, sundeck with cabanas, convenient dog walking trails, and overflow guest suites available to lease on a first-come basis.
