The Terrace

Tiffany Sands

The Terrace is the tallest building in the eight-mile stretch of Siesta Key. Its residents, especially those at the upper floors, are therefore privileged with panoramic island views rivaled only by those at its sister condominium Terrace East.

Landmarks on the northern part of the island, both are superb destinations for prospective buyers of Siesta Key condos for sale. The Terrace is located on a beachfront lot at 5400 Ocean Boulevard, corner Beach Road closer to the white sand beach, while its sister property occupies an inland site.

Contemporary Features

The Terrace was constructed in 1970 but an extensive makeover of its grounds and common areas has been undertaken. The updates were completed in 2016, giving the condominium an open contemporary feel.

The Terrace’s building stands 17 stories high, housing a total of 71 units compared with the 45 in its adjacent sister condo. Besides direct access to the pristine white Siesta Key beach, the Terrace’s amenities include a clubhouse, barbecue picnic area, a heated swimming pool, spa and hot tub, and fitness room. There is a tennis court accessible as well at Terrace East.

Rare Market Gems

Tiffany Sands

Because of the superior location and superb amenities of the Terrace, listings of its units come very seldom in the MLS of Siesta Key condos for sale. The market activity in this condominium for 2016–2017 was on a couple of units put on the market at tag prices around the $1 million level, featuring two bedrooms and two baths within a living area of 1,187 square feet.

The Terrace is more likely to attract prospective buyers just looking for an exclusive seasonal vacation getaway. This condominium has a limited one-year minimum rental policy, a setup which investors would find income-generation rather restrictive.

Prime Condo Choices

The choice condos of the Terrace are its corner, north-facing units in the building’s upper levels. Their residents not only get a vantage point to island and gulf views. Additionally, they can also enjoy dramatic vistas of the Big Pass traversing neighboring barrier islands towards Sarasota Bay and the downtown skyline.

The condominium’s locality offers a laid-back island lifestyle in its beachfront site on the northern part of Siesta Key. This coastal area is quieter but the Terrace residents can easily partake of the happenings at the Siesta Public Beach a short distance south of their units. A free trolley service plying the island also provides easy access to Crescent Beach and Turtle Beach farther south.

Life and Leisure Hubs

As convenient, the Terrace’s location on the corner of Ocean Blvd. and Beach Road is walking distance to the charming Siesta Village and its quaint selection of commercial establishments. Some of the points of interest in this area include the shops Beach Bazaar and Sea Pleasures & Treasures, as well as the restaurants Daiquiri Deck and Gilligan Island’s Bar & Grill.

More life and leisure activities can as easily be accessed with a short trip to the Sarasota mainland. Just across the north bridge on Siesta Drive, the choices may already suffice at the recently rebranded Westfield Siesta Key (formerly Westfield Sarasota Square Mall), with the Sarasota downtown delights reserved for later enjoyment.
