Sandy Cove

Sandy Cove

Sandy Cove is a unique condominium development on the serene northwestern end of Siesta Key. Its character and features are truly distinct, particularly in a popular island playground setting where the template of property developers rarely varies.

Foremost, the eclectic residential types in Sandy Cove set itself apart from typical hubs of Siesta Key condos for sale. Its residential complex was developed from 1968 to 1973. When it was fully completed, the enclave came out as a complementary mix of villas, townhouses and midrise buildings, all in all combining for a total of 112 residential units.

Award-winning Enclave

Though built in a five-year timespan, all of these dwellings have combined harmoniously to mold Sandy Cove’s quaint character. This flawless fusion derives much from the talent of eminent Sarasota architect Frank Folsom Smith who designed and developed the Sandy Cove home cluster. With this effort, Smith won the FAAIA Honor Award, one of many professional citations in his illustrious career as a modernist architect and a prominent member of the Sarasota School of Architecture.

Its superb location further makes Sandy Cove for sale a must-see for aspiring Siesta Key home buyers. This condominium is conveniently accessible via Ocean Boulevard, one of the major local road corridors linked to the island’s activity centers—from the pristine beaches to popular shopping and dining places.

Exclusive Private Beach

As enticing, the Sandy Cove property boasts of its own exclusive private beach off the Big Pass waterway, which is far removed from the public beaches of Siesta Key. The condominium complex, in addition, features a spring-fed pond with a beautiful fountain accent in its middle. Notably, several condos including midrise units were built around this pond where the fresh spring water makes it also ideal for swimming.

The water features in the condominium complex melds with its lush landscaping and cozy pathways to give this community an overall peaceful ambience. And here’s one insider’s tip: many prospective buyers of Sandy Cove condos for sale opt for the upper-floor units in the property’s midrise buildings. These residences typically provide awesome views not only of the Big Pass but also allow exquisite sights of Lido and Bird Keys plus downtown Sarasota.

All Sandy Cove residents nonetheless generally enjoy equal perks in the condominium’s various facilities including a swimming pool. At the private beach, there is a fishing pier and boat rack storage rentable annually at affordable rates.

Reasonable Price Points

For all its bells and whistles of a luxury island resort, pricing of Sandy Cove condos for sale surprisingly start at very reasonable levels. This enclave’s one-bedroom units, which feature living areas in the 500‒600-square-foot range, typically have price quotes in the upper $200s. Typical sellers’ pricing rises to the $700s for Sandy Cove residences designed with three bedrooms and three baths within floor plans approaching 2,000 square feet.

Bragging rights to the priciest home at Sandy Cove is reserved for a four-bedroom residence in this property which had a price tag of nearly $3 million when it was sold in mid-2016.
