549 Sandy Hook Rd, Treasure Island FL $329,000.00
This is our two bedroom, 2-1/2 bath, 1 car garage townhouse located on Boca Ciega Bay. We’ve owned this unit for seven years and invested upwards of $100,000 in renovations. We are now retired, recently purchased a 38′ motorhome, and travel extensively. We are considering selling, trading or leasing the unit.
The ground level features a large garage with ample room for storage and the washer/dryer/laundry room sink behind louvered doors. Through a residential interior door is a painted and air-conditioned bonus room with over 300 square feet of storage, living or work space that results in a total of approximately 2,100 square feet of heated/cooled floor space in the unit. With carpet or tile, the bonus room could be a comfortable living space.
The second level is perfect for entertaining and includes the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The living room has been newly painted, with bamboo wood floors, a wood burning fireplace, and a private balcony with a view of the bay. The bamboo wood flooring continues through the dining room which features full wall mirror to provide the illusion of increased size. The kitchen has been recently remodeled and features a huge pantry. New items include granite counter-tops, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, custom all-wood cabinets, a tray ceiling, light fixtures, and a new multi-speed fan. A renovated downstairs half bath includes a new toilet, lighting, wall treatment, paint and vanity.
The third level is where you will find the two bedrooms. The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, double closets (hers is a walk-in), and a private balcony. The master bathroom has been completely remodeled down-to-the-studs, top-to-bottom and includes new floor tile, a new vanity with custom cabinets and double sinks, mirrors, toilet, expansive linen closet, and an awesome walk in, two person, tiled shower with hand held sprayer AND rain head. There is new carpet in the bedrooms and stairs to the 3rd level.
This townhouse has hurricane shutters for securing the unit while you are away, making this townhouse a perfect “six monther” residence.
The back of the townhouse overlooks one of the two swimming pools and recreation areas.
The building in which our unit is located has been recently “tented” – the standard for a Florida termite treatment procedure. Also upcoming is a new roof and we have paid in full, our share of the assessment.
We are adjacent to the public, Treasure Bay Golf and Tennis Center, a popular community sports center.
The Treasure Island beach is an easy walk, less than one mile to the gulf and features restaurants, bars, night clubs, shopping and wonderful sunsets. We regularly cycle to the beach on our “townie” bikes, lock them to the bike stands, and view the sunset while sipping umbrella drinks. The 80 mile Pinellas (bicycle) Trail is close by.
Boat slips with water and electricity are available for long-term lease on a first-come availability basis.
The townhome residents have exclusive use of a private fishing pier/boat dock, with bench seats, lights and water.
This townhouse is located in a 123 unit complex named “Villages Of Paradise Island”. The 123 owners include both full time and part time folks. The “part timers” reside across the United States, Europe and Canada. Many residents own off shore sail and power boats and spend some months every year in the Caribbean and the northeastern ports.
As we call it, VOPI, is a friendly and safe community. The owners congregate the third Friday of each month for a pot luck supper. There is little crime in Treasure Island and NO crime in VOPI.
The homeowners’ association is active in the management and maintenance of the property. A maintenance man is employed onsite 8 – 4, M-F.
Our association has excellent cash reserves and is managed by Condominium Associates which assists our board of directors.
