Description of Property

Welcome to the Lido Regency where white sandy shores meet a wonderous ribbon on blue-green water and the view from your condominium is nothing less than a tropical dream. Situated on south Lido Key and overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom residence has been beautifully updated with a mix of coastal and beach elements. Kick off your sandals and step inside where you’ll discover a peaceful open floor plan centered on water views. The kitchen, dining area, and living room form an all-day space where it’s a treat to just be. Prepare the catch of the day in the unembellished kitchen, complete with modern lines, stainless appliances, tray ceiling, sold-surface counters, and a graciously sized island with breakfast bar. The dining area is accompanied by built-ins where memories, art, books, and seashells look right at home. The living room centers on the view and extends into the sunroom where wall-to-wall windows effortlessly bring in natural daylight and seaside charm. The owner’s suite overlooks the sunroom while plantation shutter-style sliders close with ease when it’s time for bed. A walk-in closet and newly renovated bath offer space, comfort, and privacy. A second bedroom welcomes guests – because who doesn’t want to be at the beach? Lido Regency offers an updated gym with water views, a recently renovated community room, and a resort-style beach front pool and spa. This desirable address is the perfect home base for daily beachfront walks, kayaking adventures, and island exploring. Nearby St. Armands Circle beckons with all its shopping and world- class restaurants, like the Columbia, Café L’Europe, and Crab and Fin. The cultural epicenter of downtown Sarasota is just over the bridge where every night holds a different experience – opera, ballet, theater, improv, jazz, orchestra, and even circus arts. Relax.
