Frances Carlton


 

Frances Carlton Condos for Sale

Who would ever think that any of the current Sarasota condos for sale still retain some vestiges of the Florida land boom during the 1920s? But the fact is Sarasota’s Frances Carlton condominium, built in 1924, is one of such traces of the real estate investment bonanza in the Sunshine State during those years.

Thus, in contrast to the high-rise condos that dominate the skyline of the city’s downtown district, this property presents a delightful choice of twenty-one residences in a charming three-story building at 1221 North Palm Avenue. Reminiscent of the era when it was built, the condominium is of Spanish Mediterranean design, making it a perfect choice for those who have a bent toward historic structures.

What’s great about this property, despite its vintage architecture, is that the residences have been updated without jeopardizing their quaint allure. It is therefore common to find Frances Carlton condos for sale with their original Palladian windows retained and wood floors intact but refinished.

The residences at this condo range in size from 650 to 1,150 square feet, and typical Frances Carlton condos for sale have one bedroom and one bathroom. Historically, the asking prices for these properties are in the low-$200s to the mid-$300s level. The listed price, nonetheless, can go below the $200,000 mark for a unit on a short sale notice and offers 674 square feet of space, and a one-bed-room, one-bath configuration.

The wrought iron gates and immaculate landscaping in the complex provides a refreshing and laid-back ambience in the community. Its residents have a community swimming pool and are allowed to keep to large pets. The minimum rental here is for one year, and with only twenty-one units, a close-knit and well-managed neighborhood can be expected at the Frances Carlton.

To sum it up, this condo can be a cool downtown refuge or an ideal vacation home. Even as only a few upper units have partial views of the majestic Sarasota Bay, the condominium is walking distance from bayfront as well as downtown attractions. Among these are the Marina Jacks Trail at Island Park, the Florida Studio Theater and the Sarasota Opera House, in addition to shops and restaurants like the Whole Foods Market, Like in France and O’Leary’s Tiki Bar and Grill.

Also some just ten minutes away is the chic commercial center St. Armands Circle easily accessible via the Ringling Bridge near the condo community. The short crossing of this span also leads to the Lido Key and Longboat Key beaches that historically contributed to the real estate boom in Florida and the eventual emergence of lovely condos like the Frances Carlton’s.
