Direct unobstructed views of the azure Gulf of Mexico waters are enjoyed from almost every room in this spacious 2 bedroom residence located in the intimate community of Longboat Sandpipers. Spectacular sunsets provide a magical backdrop to everyday life while relaxing on the terrace, sitting on the beach, or grilling dinner by the pool. The well appointed kitchen provides plenty of room for home chefs to prepare culinary delights with the KitchenAid appliances and using the convenient pass through window to set the table, converse with guests in the main living area, or just enjoy the water view. Use the kitchen alcove as a casual dining space, reading room, or office space. Being on the top floor has the added benefit of 11’ vaulted ceilings in both the main living area and the master bedroom, providing a more open space. The master suite pampers owners with a large walk-in closet, garden tub, separate shower, dual vanities, plantation shutters with access to the terrace and water views to send you off into a nautical dreamland. The ensuite guest bedroom has its own character with a cozy reading nook and ample closet space. This very private community consists of only ten units with a gulf front pool and grilling area for entertaining guests. Ideally located close to a variety of fine and casual dining choices and a short drive to St. Armands Circle to the south or historic Bridge Street on Anna Maria Island to the north. This is Longboat Life at its best! Additional highlights include new carpeting, newer a/c unit (2017) and newer hot water heater (2018).
