Easy-Living Top-Floor Residential Condo With Elevator
Fantastic Nature Views Plus Amenities & Beach
at 1340 Middle Gulf Drive
Sunset South is a 56-unit community with heated pool, clubhouse, and beach.
Each of the 15 buildings has four units with garage parking, community laundries, & private storerooms.
Only four of the buildings have elevators which makes #6D especially attractive.
Four riverside buildings (Buildings 6 through 9) overlook a canal area which is part of the Sanibel River.
On the other side of the river is a natural area bordering Beachview Country Club Estates and the Sanibel Golf Club’s course.
This view provides nice light and a constant variety of natural delights – like the Great White Heron below.
Sunset South offers easy-living with a variety of social activities in a residential setting.
Since there is a monthly rental minimum, most units are occupied by year-’round residents, 2nd homeowners, and extended vacationers.
A long-time Facilities Manager lives on-site and is on-call during the normal workday.
Known for being handy to the East End, Sunset South offers close proximity to the Sanibel causeway, affording quick on/off-island access.
It also is on the bike path and just a short walk to the beach, golf/tennis and restaurant at the Sanibel Golf Club, plus the nearby offerings at Sundial Resort, including pickleball, a mini-Bailey’s General Store, plus a variety of shops and other dining options.
#6D is a top-floor riverside 2 bedroom (there are two levels over the garage-level).
The private elevator services the four units in the building with unit elevator key allowing the elevator to open inside the unit.
With ~1,460 sq. ft. under, ~1,900 total, the original living floor plan was expanded into the riverside screened balcony when glass sliders were added.
Spanning the entire width of the condo, electric storm shutters provide additional protection, while manual shutters zip up the side slider.
The screened spanning the back of the unit faces gulf side along Middle Gulf Dr. It is accessible from sliders (with sliding planation shutters) in each bedroom. Accordion-style storm shutters offer additional protection here.
Opening these sliders during those times when air conditioning is not needed (most of the winter) generates great fresh air flow, right through the condo.

The bright-white kitchen has raised ceiling and is open the dining area.

Behind the garage is the private large lower-level storeroom, where a small workbench & two storage racks which will remain.
The community laundry at the west-end of the lower level services the four units in the building.
A short hallway to the elevator borders the #6D storeroom, directly behind the garage.
