Mansions By The Sea – Sunset Beach – Treasure Island

Notes from Rob:

Mansions by the Sea Treasure Island Florida

The condo complexes along the beaches vary greatly.  Some are small, with only 8 or 10 units, while other are much larger with hundreds of units.  Mansions by the Sea on Sunset Beach in Treasure Island is one of the larger units.  The complex has two buildings, each with 72 condos.  The units run from 1-bedroom units with  1,015 square feet to large 4-bedroom units with 3,100 square feet.  Though a vast majority of the units are 2-bedroom/2-bathroom,  1,510 square foot units.  Mansions by the Sea was built in 1980.  The units vary greatly by view and by upgrades that have been made.  Many still have the original appliances, counters, cabinets and flooring that came when the unit was originally built 30-years ago.  With that in mind, you can buy them at a lower price and update them to your taste.  Others have been beautifully updated by their current owners and all you need to do in move in and enjoy the view.  There is a community pool in-between the two buildings, as well as a small game room, fitness center, and tennis court.  The complex also has a very nice boardwalk along the beach.

If you have never been to Sunset Beach, you should go and check it out.  It is on the south end of Treasure Island and is one of those lesser known beaches that locals get to enjoy without the crowds of the more touristy beaches.  Several small restaurants allow you to have a beer and burger during your outings.  You are only 5 minutes away from the Treasure Island Causeway, giving you easy access to the mainland.

There are currently 12 units for sale in the complex, ranging from $219,900 to $999,000.  I especially like a 2-bedroom/2-bath unit on the North-East corner which gives nice beach views from one balcony and sunset views from another, which is listed for $399,000. Four units have sold this year at prices ranging from $276,900 to $575,000.  Monthly maintenance fees are just under $500 a month and include: building insurance, taking care of the building exterior and lawn, pest control, security, trash, water, and sewer.

For those looking a condo with reasonable square footage, a nice view, and beaches to stroll along, this would be a building to look at.
