Harbor House West Condos
Harbor House West is a development of 24 condominiums, originally constructed in 1965, located to the west of Golden Gate Point, just off the John Ringling Causeway. Living in this area means that you get to enjoy the breath-taking sunsets provided by the expanse of the Gulf of Mexico and you can also enjoy the views offered by Bird Key, Siesta Key and Lido Key also. The entire Golden Gate Point area has recently received a pretty serious makeover and the streets are now covered in rich brick, and additional street lights have been erected to add to the general ambience of this community.
Living in Harbor House West means that you're located close to everything that the city of Sarasota can offer you but you're also only a short drive away from St Armand’s on Lido Key, the South Lido County Park, Longboat Key and Bird Key also. In terms of pricing you can expect to pay between $450,000 and $900,000 for a condo in Harbor House West with units starting at 2 bedrooms and 1,300 square feet and rapidly working their way upwards in terms of both space and price. One si-highlight--primary note here is that the condos in this area are for residents only and you're not permitted to rent them to anyone else, although the units here are pet friendly – which is always a nice bonus.
