Lawrence Pointe condominiums have long been a mainstay of the Sarasota luxury bay front condominium scene since 1978. Situated right next to the Ritz Carlton, you just can’t find a better location for the exquisite views, enticing night life the downtown area, or just the ability to walk to all this town has to offer. Owners see dolphins swimming in the bay from their balcony on a regular basis. One of the exceptional features of living here at 97 Sunset Drive is the close nit feeling of only 40 units over 5 floors has to offer.
This well run and managed build that has undergone recent upgrades and updating inside and out. A newer seawall, update elevators, a paver brick entry, electronic storm shutters, a wonderful heated pool and garden drill area, extra storage and assigned parking are just some of the features you will enjoy. Fees are kept low due to a unique arrangement the owners association have with the Ritz to help with keep the association fees low with a $42,000 per year contribution to the capital improvement fund through 2065.
The smaller units will be two-bedroom two-bath with just over 1,500 square feet. Larger 2,900+ square foot units will have an additional third-bedroom and full bath along with more lavish terrace space. Owners have updated their units over the years to include granite and marble counter tops and flooring, top of the line appliances, and the list goes on. There is hardly a place in these units that the view of Longboat Key and the John Ringling Bridge is not visible. This is a true jewel on the Bayfront.
This is a pet friendly building for one small pet. If you are looking to own here and rent your space out, this is not the building for you. Only owners and their guests are permitted to occupy and unit. This is a real plus for those who want to enjoy the serenity of living here without having to endure the constant in-and-out of tenants.
