Just Sold | Legacy Townhomes 506 | 30A, FL

3 Bed  |  3 Bath  |  1,600 Square Feet  |  Selling Price: $1,030,000

This was the highest priced townhome to sell in Legacy's history! Our long-time clients purchased this beautiful townhome nearly a decade ago and have loved coming to visit and live the beach life. After purchasing a lot on the beach and deciding they would like to build a second home to enjoy retired life, they made a wise move to take advantage of the current seller's market. They asked us to list their unit and we were happy to get to work. We were so pleased to be able to assist them in such a successful sale!

This wonderful townhome at Legacy on 30A is the perfect beach getaway. On the second floor, you'll find the main living area with kitchen, dining, and a full bath. The third floor houses the spacious master suite and a sleeping nook. The first floor has a third bedroom as well a private guest suite with the full bath leading to the gated courtyard and pool area. Enjoy the serene Gulf views and sea breeze from two separate balconies as you relax and take in the ease of life along 30A watching bicycle riders and dog walkers stroll by. The garage stores a compact vehicle or beach gear. A private elevator makes townhome living easy. This is the perfect paradise on 30A!

Legacy is a quiet, gated, beachfront community located along popular 30A. A small and private community, Legacy is comprised of both condos and townhomes. The amenities include three pools, outdoor restrooms, private beachfront, and is convenient to all the fun along 30A. A beautiful paradise!

This unit was lovely to shoot and market. Located in the heart of 30A with Gulf views, great amenities, and beautiful beachfront, we knew this unit would appeal to buyers desiring to live the coastal lifestyle or make an investment in paradise. We made the most of these aspects and featured them in our marketing plan. Along with professional photography, we produced a video tour of the unit and community highlights. We promoted this on social media and in email marketing to create an interest in the property.


For ease of access in learning more about the unit and community, we featured the property in our monthly newsletter to send to our database of investors and agents that link to both the property website and video tourThe property was also featured on ZillowTruliaand Realtor.comas well as internationally renowned
