About 4540 Gulf Of Mexico Drive 205

Entering this cheery and bright water view condo, you are greeted by a gorgeous, unique open floor plan. With gleaming 24” porcelain tile laid on the diagonal and flowing seamlessly throughout the entire home, the living space and views have been maximized to show off the beauty of Sarasota Bay and the Mangrove Preserve. An entire wall has been dedicated to over 30’ of windows. It is truly like having a front row seat to Mother Nature. The floor plan has been reengineered to create an open and airy great room and split bedroom plan. The Owner’s Retreat is nestled at the far end of the residence and includes a spacious walk-in closet plus ensuite bathroom with double bowl vanity and custom glass enclosed shower. The Guest Bedroom is tucked away on the other side of the home and can do double duty as a home office or second lounging space. An extra bonus is a fun and creative twin bed sleeping space for the kiddos adjacent to the Owner's Retreat. The home was fully renovated down to the studs in 2016 including new wiring, new plumbing, recessed lighting, new HVAC, Bosch stackable W/D, and PGT hurricane impact, low-E windows. The finishes are tasteful and high quality with espresso cabinetry, granite counters, oil rubbed bronze hardware and stainless appliances. The monthly HOA fee of $1303 includes the cost of your insurances (flood/hurricane/hazard), exterior maintenance, landscaping, CATV, sewer, water, trash, rec facilities and a contribution to the reserves account – great peace of mind knowing this community takes care of itself! (EXTRA SPECIAL: The Seller has prepaid the 2024 HOA monthly fees and the upcoming $26,490 special assessment in full. These will be credits to the Buyer at closing!). The community has also passed its Milestone Integrity Study and is certified for another ten years. For the water enthusiast, there are first come boat slips available for lease and lifts are allowed. Slips are $45/month or $50/month if with an owner supplied lift. Slips can accommodate an up to 30' boat or personal watercraft. Fido and Fifi will love it here also as two pets (max weight of 75 pounds) are allowed, even for tenants. Windward Bay is amenities rich with 3 beach accesses, 2 heated pools (one is good for laps), tennis, pickle ball, fitness center, sauna, bike racks, kayak storage & launches ($35/year), clubhouse, 2 marinas, 2 fish cleaning stations, BBQ grills, fire pit, outdoor dining tables, 1/2 mile of walking paths and on-site professional management. For those seeking rental income, this community is a reliable producer due to its location and amenities. Rentals are allowed immediately upon ownership with a one month minimum lease up to twice per year. When you want to explore outside this oasis, Windward Bay has easy access to the restaurants, cultural events and shopping of downtown Sarasota and St. Armands Circle along with professional marinas and championship golf nearby.
