Here’s an interesting condo on Golden Gate Point that’s both very unique and very Sarasota. It’s in one of the older buildings (built in 1965), but it has a great feature: it’s on the ground floor so you walk out onto a terrace—with retractable awning—that is right on the water and has a beautiful open view south to Siesta Key.

The apartment was renovated in 2007 with high-end finishes and has a particularly nice kitchen—Sub-Zero fridge, custom cabinets, granite counters, etc. There are lots of built-ins throughout, including a wall of closets in the master. The second bedroom has been configured as an office and has a steam shower and California closets (I’m not sure exactly what these are, but they sound great). There is almost 1,500 square feet of living area, a nice size for a two-bedroom unit.

Golden Gate Point is the premium part of downtown. Built on a little peninsula that extends out into the bay, it’s tucked away by itself without the crowds and bustle and street life that can sometimes complicate downtown living--yet you're still just a short walk from all the restaurants, the Opera, FST, etc. Many old timers live there, drawn by the perfect combination of advantages.

The apartment is a brand-new listing and is priced at $895,000. The address is 400 Golden Gate Pt., #12. For more information call Jerry Zaback of Premier Sotheby’s at (941) 364-4000.
