A fast-tracked search for a condominium in Sarasota, Florida, best starts with a look at the units at the One Watergate complex. These condos can easily upstage other choices in downtown Sarasota because of their many outstanding features.
The One Watergate condos literally stand out in a high-rise constructed at 1111 North Gulfstream Avenue in 1974. This is a well-established community near the bay-front and the city’s downtown district, boasting of meticulously upgraded and competitively priced residences. Theses condos are favored for the unobstructed views of the Sarasota Bay generously afforded particularly in the upper floor units. Open and spacious floor plans, granite counter tops, nine-foot ceilings, and top-of-the-line construction finish are but a few of the features of the condo’s residences which total 104.
Lush landscaping surrounds the residential complex, thus providing a rejuvenating ambiance to the downtown setting. The garage parking for the residents are secured and there are many other additional amenities. Among these are wireless Internet availability at no additional cost, tennis courts, a fitness center, a new social area, and a heated swimming pool. Moreover, the common areas are well maintained, thanks to an efficient on-site management and active homeowner's association. Recent maintenance projects, for instance, saw the refurbishing of the condo’s interior hallways; the elevator facilities have also been updated.
There are many downtown and bay-front attractions around these Sarasota condos for sale. A short stroll toward Sarasota Bay will take the One Watergate residents to Island Park, a popular spot for sight-seeing and other outdoor activities, particularly at its Marina Jacks Trail. The superb O’Leary’s Tiki Bar & Grill in the park is complemented by other equally fine dining venues near the area, such as Ceviche Tapas and Bijou Café. Access to shopping is as instantaneous in the nearby Whole Foods Market. Entertainment centers are also just minutes away with the presence of the Florida Studio Theater, Burns Court Cinema, and the Golden Apple Dinner Theater in the condominium’s vicinity.
