About 2050 Benjamin Franklin Drive A601

Exceptional luxury in a premium Lido Key location presents a perfect blend of traditional elegance and contemporary style. This Orchid Beach condominium offers a spacious layout over more than 3,200 square feet, with three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. Each bedroom is a luxurious personal retreat, with ensuite comfort and direct access to a terrace. The appeal of this home’s sophistication and style are immediate, as private elevator access opens to a personal foyer with a cove ceiling and magnificent chandelier. Through double entry doors, the inlaid marble floor extends throughout the expansive living space. Enormous windows and sliders showcase the spectacular views of Sarasota Bay, the city skyline, and the Gulf. Cove ceilings with recessed lighting and designer contemporary fixtures distinguish each space throughout the home. In the large central living room, a full wall of glass sliders opens to the deep terrace, seamlessly extending the living space with 575 SF of room for additional lounging and dining. The orientation of Building A allows the terrace to enjoy incredible east-facing vistas of the Bay and city as well as south-facing views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Adjacent to the living room, the spacious dining room easily accommodates a table for ten, with a floating buffet and recessed display case adding artistry to the space. The chef’s kitchen features plentiful cabinet and counter space, with a large island, double wall ovens, a gas range, paneled Subzero refrigerator, and a large passthrough breakfast bar with additional seating adjacent to a breakfast nook and separate den that open directly onto the terrace. Just outside of the kitchen, the terrace includes a large gas grill with hood ideal for summer cooking. The roomy owners’ suite includes a seating area alongside the double doors that open to the terrace. The owners’ bathroom features an extra-long vanity and mirror wall, deep soaker tub, and glass-enclosed shower with separate water closet. A dedicated utility room adds to the home’s comforts, with high-capacity LG washer and dryer, sink and storage, and an auxiliary wine refrigerator. Beautifully landscaped and gated for security and privacy, Orchid Beach is a pet-friendly and amenity-rich community, with resort style appointments offered exclusively to residents. In addition to the 24/7 security, Orchid Beach offers exceptional lifestyle amenities that include a Gulf-front heated pool and spa, massage room, sauna and fitness center, and hospitality and entertaining spaces including two guest suites, a library, and social space with an adjacent catering kitchen. The Lido Key location is renowned for its privacy and pristine white sand beaches, with exceptional vistas of both the Gulf and Sarasota Bay and access to nearby shopping and dining.
