Sunset Towers is one condominium whose glitter hasn’t faded in spite of the difficulties in the real estate market in recent years. This property has retained its lofty billing among downtown Sarasota condos, essentially because of its superior location and outstanding residential features.
The Sunset Towers condo is located at 11 Sunset Drive, right before the eastern approach to the Ringling Causeway and adjacent to North Gulfstream Avenue. The condominium overlooks scenic Sarasota Bay as well as the sprawling downtown district, a panorama best enjoyed from the upper floors of this nine-story residential building constructed in 1980. Many upscale Sarasota condos, like those at the Golden Gate Point Peninsula, have also been developed around this ideal location.
The amenities in the condominium are at par with the facilities of its more pricey neighboring condos. Sunset Towers residents boast of their own private beach plus a fishing pier. They also have access to the community’s heated pool at the complex’s bayfront. The other perks to ownership of a unit include access to a clubhouse, saunas, bike trails, covered parking, and reliable elevator service.
Notably, only a few blocks from the condo are many of the points of interest in the downtown district that help make Sarasota condos quite attractive. These attractions include superb dining venues, like Ceviche Tapas Bar & Restaurant and Bijou Café. Also around the area are fabled centers for arts, culture, and entertainment such as the Florida Studio Theater and the Golden Apple Dinner Theater.
Shopping too need not be confined to the nearby Whole Foods Market and stylish boutiques at the Main Street. There are a lot of other options at the St. Armands Circle which is home to more than 130 shops as well as splendid local restaurants. All these can be reached with a few minutes drive via the Ringling Causeway Bridge. Heading a short distance to the west via this span also brings in the beaches of Lido and Longboat Keys.
