Penthouse Riverside 2 Bedroom with Garage, Semi-Private Elevator, & Storeroom
1340 Middle Gulf Drive, Sanibel Island
Built in 1975, Sunset South was the first condominium complex built on Sanibel Island, shortly after the City incorporated.
The 56 units are spread over 14 like buildings. Each has two units on the 2nd floor (over garage parking) and two units on the top floors.
Ten buildings on the gulf side of Middle Gulf Drive are centered around a courtyard with clubhouse and pool.
Only a few buildings, like Building 6 have elevators.
The parking areas are pavers with each owner have an assigned garage. This one also has a remote-controlled garage door.
The storeroom for #6D is directly behind its garage – a handy spot for a workbench, hobbies, or for storing items that don’t need air conditioning (like beach toys, bikes, golf clubs, sporting goods, etc.)
The clubhouse has party room with kitchen, and office for their facilities employee who usually is on-site during the week. Guest parking is available in front of the clubhouse.
When their mobility was challenged, they purchased this condo which allowed them to enjoy several more years on their beloved Sanibel Island, before moving to a retirement community.
Originally constructed with a screened riverside balcony, that extra space became part of the living air-conditioned space when the great room was bumped out and the balcony glassed. It also has storm shutters.
The semi-private elevator comes up to that riverside balcony area.
Today’s sellers bought this property just a few months ago with the intention of updating and renovating and modernizing.
Floors through-out are easy-care neutral wood-look tile. Very beachy!
The en suite master and guest room both have plantation shutters.
The guest bath has a shower too. The neutral color-scheme flows from the kitchen to each of the bedrooms and baths.
New furnishings and wall décor were added as construction completed. Included are three flat-screen TVs.
It also is pet-friendly with owners allowed to bring either one cat or one dog.
