In Sarasota, a reasonably-priced, recently built condo with outstanding amenities at an attractive location can be a difficult thing to find. But, there is an unusual opportunity to find one today because the condominiums at the San Marco offer just that.
The San Marco, located at 1188 N. Tamiami Trail, consists of just twenty-three 3 and 4 bedroom reasonably-priced, yet spacious residences with large terraces, covered, dedicated parking spaces, a fitness center with sauna, heated pool and spa, and plaza decks with umbrellas all at a convenient location. For the pet lover, the complex is pet-friendly; Unit owners only, not renters, may have up to two pets, up to 40 pounds with some restrictions on breeds.
Built in 2006 as one of the newer residential developments in Sarasota’s art district, the building’s exterior reflects its architectural namesake, the Piazza San Marco in Venice, Italy with the graceful arches and balustrades of its terraces and its interior walkways lined with plant boxes of shrubs and greenery.
San Marco is not exactly "right in the heart of downtown Sarasota," but then again, it's not far from it either. If you are fit and enjoy walking, you could definitely walk to the shopping, dining, entertainment and cultural venues in the heart of downtown, but San Marco residents are more likely to get to those destinations by a short automobile or taxi ride.
San Marco units range from about 1,840 to over 3,850 square feet and sell from the mid to high $400,000 to the $500,000's. The largest units, when available, can sell for up to the mid $600,000's.
San Marco condos are rarely for sale given their location, amenities and quite reasonable prices. But, interestingly, right now there are three 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath San Marco units on the market ranging in size from 1,843 to 2,093 square feet and priced currently between $495,800 and $529,900.
A residence at the San Marco might be a great fit for you if you would like a lot of space for the money, newer construction and still be "close to downtown Sarasota."
These units may not remain on the market much longer. If a San Marco residence sounds like the kind of condominium property you’d like to consider, please call me at 941.228.9682. I would be delighted to help you choose which one best fits your needs or, if something else suits you better, help you find the Sarasota FL real estate property that matches your needs and desires in the price range you prefer.
