3 Under 5

The downtown lifestyle is a coveted one: walkability to great restaurants, cute shoppes and salons; some of the best sunset water views in the state, arguably in the country; easy access to the many cultural amenities in Sarasota such as opera, theater, and art galleries; and of course the low-maintenance appeal of condo life, including concierge service, maintained amenities and grounds, and building security.  Would you be surprised to find that this lifestyle can be attained for under $500,000?  

Well it's possible, and downtown diva of real estate, Allison Werner, has spotted three unique properties currently on the market downtown for a steal...

Burns Court Enclave

Burns Court is the quiet, eclectic community on the south side of downtown, which typically carries a price tag much higher than this!  This adorable condo in gated Burns Court Enclave has been fully remodeled with bamboo flooring and a clean, modern kitchen.  It also features several floor-to-ceiling windows, making it light and bright.  Literally everything else on the marketing right now in this area of downtown is priced around or above $1,000,000.  Updated unit, desirable location...yes, please!

Francis Carlton

We love the Francis Carlton building here at View From the Top.  It's one of the most affordable ways to get into downtown, it's got water views, and it's in a beautiful historic building.  Steps away from the Ritz, around the corner from the Florida Studio Theatre complex, and the tiniest stroll from Sarasota Italian restaurant staple, Caraguilo's, this place is all about the location!  This unit in particular has been updated but keeps with the character of this gorgeous building with cool features like built-ins, plantation shutters, and beautiful arched windows.  What a steal!!!

Risdon on 5th

Risdon on 5th is a contemporary-design new building located in the Rosemary District of North Downtown.  It's walking distance from hip new SRQ haunts such as Mandeville Beer Garden and Blue Rooster, as well as the chic fine dining and retail area on North Orange Avenue.  This is the last 1/1 unit available in ultra-modern Risdon, is able to be occupied this fall, and features a solar-heated rooftop pool as well as two rooftop terraces, offering unique and stunning views of all of downtown.  Other amenities of this new community include gated & secured parking (with charging stations for electric cars!), and a lush courtyard.  Very chic and reasonably priced!

As always, if you are looking for something extra-special in downtown Sarasota, give us a call and let us find you the perfect place!  The options, as you can see from these amazing residences mentioned here, are limitless and can fit almost any budget and lifestyle!

Shhh... It's a Sarasota Best Kept Secret!

Burns Court Cafe Wine Bar

I had a wonderful time last week when I stumbled into the Wine Bar of the Burns Court Cafe.  Separate from, and yet a part of, the fantastic Burns Court Cafe, the Wine Bar is a quaint, quiet, and exclusive little enclave with both a worldly and incredibly intimate neighborhood feel.

The international owners and staff make this place feel like you've teleported to an old cafe in France or Italy.  I sat at the 6-seat bar, enjoyed a glass of rose' and live jazz.  There is a special wine bar menu after 5pm with appetizers, small plates, entrees, and desserts, and while we didn't eat that evening, the food coming out of the kitchen looked amazing.  As expected, the wine bar has an extensive selection of wine both by the glass and by the bottle, as well as a pretty decent selection of beer too.

...the Wine Bar is a quaint, quiet, and exclusive enclave with both a worldly and incredibly intimate neighborhood feel.

By morning, Burns Court Cafe is a delightful patisserie with pastries, fresh squeezed juices, coffees and cappuccinos.  By day, the cafe serves elegant entrees, salads, pressed sandwiches, quiche, and tapas.  But by night, this little best kept secret transforms into a private jazz club with great, sharable plates and fantastic wine.  Stroll over to Burns Court one evening and check it out! 

Cheers!
