Unique Near-Beach Free-Standing Home in Condo Community
Sealoft Village #109, 1799 Middle Gulf Dr
Located on nearly 11 acres on the beach side of Middle Gulf Dr, Sealoft Village was built in 1982 by a developer wise enough to know that the convenience of condominium amenities with the privacy of a single-family residence make a desirable combination.
It is a perfect mix for islanders-lovers whether they want to live here year-’round, come for vacations, or escape a chilly winter.
Just nine homes comprise this community with the elevated properties well spaced apart, & nestled amid tropical native vegetation – like tree houses.
The community location is across the street from the bike path & an easy ride or drive to both Jerry’s and Bailey’s shopping centers.
On-/off-island access also is convenient even during high season by way of Middle Gulf Dr to East Gulf, or Casa Ybel Rd to Periwinkle.
Sealoft community amenities include a heated swimming pool & walkway to the beach with access over the eastern-most boardwalk at nearby Signal Inn.
Originally built with a community tennis court, the owners decided to update with the times. The tennis court currently is under construction for conversion to pickleball & putting green. (Funds already in place for this, while a new roof also was recently added to the pool house.)
The $1800/quarter condo fee pays for these amenities plus water, trash removal, & basic cable. Each owner is responsible for their own free-standing home which must be maintained in keeping with the neighborhood. (Any changes affecting the exterior must be approved by the association.)
Below is the community site & original floor plan.
At #109, the lower level has covered paver parking, outdoor shower, plus a large storeroom (with plenty of room for sporting goods & beach toys).
The hot water heater is in the storeroom, as is the equipment for a water filtration system that services the whole house.
Once up the stairs, an entry deck opens into a modern kitchen.
Opposite the kitchen is a convenient laundry closet.
The kitchen counter also services the dining area which backs to sliders to a screened porch, perfect for al fresco dining!
The adjoining living room with fireplace features high ceilings, skylights, & lots of natural light.
The master bedroom behind the living room was expanded into a former deck & also features an en suite bath with shower.
With a split-plan design, the guest room also on the main living level is handy to the 2nd bath, just off the kitchen. Both baths remodeled.
Upstairs, the open loft has closets & currently is used as a 3rd sleeping area.
Offered fully furnished & turn-key with just a couple of personal exceptions, the seller has lovingly enjoyed this property as a family retreat for 33 years.
Rentals are limited to monthly.
A gentle owner pet is allowed, no visitor or renter pets.
