This Could Be My Dream Condo

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

We have completed yet another remodel. Actually, more than just remodel. We completely redesigned this 2 bedroom/2 baths direct riverfront unit in Pendleton Club, Daytona Beach.

I think we have special feelings about this place, where we spent 2 years in 2003-2004 and lived through 4 major hurricanes of 2004 and yet were among very few properties that had not lost power. We did not own the unit, we were renting it from our friends. They bought it with our help, and we were their first tenants.

While living there, we had often fantasized about what could be done to make this unit a standout. When we moved to our own condo in Ponce Inlet, the unit was rented until recently. Our friends decided to sell it, and we put it on the market.

The unit was in bad shape, the market was and still is somewhat sluggish, so it was not moving even with a very attractive price. In our area, the buyers of condos are practically always out of the area, and the prospect of doing substantial work in the unit turns people away.

So, we spoke to the owner and decided to remodel the unit. And here is how it looks today. There is no even point to show the photos of before, it has all been changed, the layout of the unit is very different. Of course, no matter what you do to a 1963 building, you can’t change the ceiling heights, you can put washer and dryer in the unit, so it is on each floor. But pretty much everything else has been changed.

It is a relatively small 2 bedr/2 baths condo with 1,152 sf. A condo like this on the ocean would sell for $350K-$375. Prices on the river are at least $100K lower. But for those who like the river, it is an ideal place.

It has a boat dock, its own boat launch, place to have kayaks, boat and trailer parking… And this is the only condo on the river that has it all, and for pennies compared to other condos with marinas. Boat slips are $50 a month for the maximum length of boat 27'. Boat parking is $35 a month. Association dues for this unit $391 a month.

Pendleton Club does not have a gym, but they have a doorman from 8 AM until 9:30 PM.

Great thank you to my son-in-law Jon Hardison for taking photos for this blog.

Dorie Dillard - we do very few of those. It is not that much about money, it is a fun to see the results, and to see people enjoying it.

Excellent remodeling job Jon. You might consider showing the before pictures as I'm sure whomever buys will appreciate all your hard work even more. Your efforts are sure to be rewarded in spades with a full price sale soon!

Debe Maxwell, CRS - showing old pictures is sort of tricky because space is redesigned and people do not recognize it. Thank you for the compliment.

Myrl Jeffcoat - we live on the ocean, and we did pretty much similar remodel, but when I am in this condo, I feel a bit jealous :)

Kathy Streib - Photos are by my son-in-law, and he is great, but yet this is the case where photos do not embellish the condo. It is as nice if not nicer in reality. Thank you

Gabe Sanders - thank you, Gabe. I hope. It is more expensive than other units for sale in the building, but it is by far the nicest unit there, so really it is not overpriced at all. It just needs a boater enthusiast

Joyce Marsh, Daytona Beach Florida - what a question... How did you know what was on my mind? I already asked Olga whether she would mind moving there. I love kayaking... But she has her own agenda and it is different from mine... Oh, well
