This beautiful newer condo complex in St. Pete Beach sits right on Boca Ciega Bay. Construction on Boca Sands started in 2005 and it was finish in 2006
Within 3 days of taking reservations, there was not one condo left. There was a real rush one these units and people stood in line. We saw two different kinds of buyers, locals who saw a chance to live in a new and big condo right on the Intracoastal Waterway and at the same time, live across the street from the beach. A perfect combination. The other buyer was just in it for investment purposes. And they all wanted to flip the units as soon as they were finished.
Boca Sands has 64 units altogether and it is a gated community. Two small pets up to 20 pounds are allowed and you can rent the condos for a minimum of 60 days.
This St. Pete beach community has a wonderful recreational area with a pool and a spa, and waterside cabanas surrounded by tropical landscaping. The whole complex has a very relaxes and exclusive feeling to it. All condos have 9 foot ceilings and a nice open floor plan with lots of natural light and nice size balconies. When the developer originally sold the condos the buyers had lots of upgrades to choose from and also different floors and countertop.
As far as I know there was only one resale since January 2007. It was a 2400 sf. corner unit on the second floor with a 2 car garage. The asking price was $799,000 and it sold for $650,000. Right now there are 17 units active on the market, starting at $ 749,000 up to $2,850,000 for a penthouse.
