Located in Sarasota’s new downtown core, with never-ending water and city views is this boutique, 18-story condominium building named BLVD. In this 6th-floor unit, the owners and their award-winning designer, JKL Design, took a blank canvas that already offered exquisite features and amenities and elevated the design and installation of interior appointments to a whole new level. BLVD is occupied by only 49 owners, making the building intimate and manageable and the staff that’s in place to support the owner’s needs is in keeping with what you’d expect from luxury condominium living. As you enter Unit 602 from the private opening elevator, you can see just how expansive the unit is with its wide-plank French oak flooring, high ceiling and depth-of-field; as it pulls you from the glass-enclosed foyer into the rest of the nearly 4,000-square-foot residence. Upon entering the kitchen, you’ll find an 18-foot main island, that offers a tremendous amount of storage and ease of access, solid wood cabinets with dovetail joinery, Dacor appliances, a six-burner natural gas cooktop, glass tile backsplashes, a wine cooler and dry bar. There’s also a pantry and catering room that offers abundant cabinetry and spans 19 feet deep. From these rooms you can choose to spend enriched time with family or entertain friends in the stylish living room and dining room, which each feature floor-to-ceiling glass sliders and windows that go on and on, framing some of the nicest panoramic bay and Gulf water views in the area. The primary bedroom suite is lush with custom appointments that include imported marble countertops, crystal chandeliers and pendants, magnificent gold-finished mirrors and plumbing fixtures, imported porcelain tile floors and an endless wardrobe room that could match the needs of a fashion designer. There are also 2 private guest bedroom suites with en-suite bathrooms and walk-in wardrobe closets; one of which offers access to an outdoor terrace with seating, plus a half bath that features a one-of-a-kind antique armoire closet. And throughout, you’ll find automated Lutron lighting and motorized window shade controls. The building, which resides directly across from the new 53-acre downtown bay waterfront project that will feature a new performing arts center and elliptical-shaped bay walk, is rich with community amenities, such as a 19th-floor rooftop heated swimming pool (there is no 13th floor), 9,000 square feet of terrace space, seating areas, plus cabanas and a covered outdoor kitchen with grills and refrigeration for entertaining. On the 5th-floor amenities level, you’ll find a 1,400-square-foot outdoor pet lawn and pet spa, a professional fitness room, golf simulator room, club lounge with billiards, a wine room with assigned storage lockers, conference room and plenty of outdoor terrace seating. This beautifully appointed condominium comes with two secure parking spaces and is a very close drive to SRQ airport, area beaches and golf courses as well as a quick walk to the bayfront marina, opera house and live theatre venues, as well as great restaurants and service providers. Plan a visit to this wonderful condominium and see all that the building and this unit have to offer.
