                       PINE RUN CONDOMINIUM

 

Pine Run is a 147 unit condominium located on 20+ acres of lush native Florida landscape. Built in three Sections beginning in 1973 and finished in 1982,  each unit opens onto its own private piece of the woods. The one, two and three bedroom units blend into the natural beauty.   Pine Run has two pools and four tennis courts as well as a Club House.


Located less than a half mile from the Gulf of Mexico and the inland waterway. Pine Run sits halfway between Sarasota and Venice on Blackburn Point Road.  Oscar Scherer State Park is less than a mile south and the new Heritage bike path from Venice to Sarasota runs just east of Pine Run.

Pine Run was begun in the early 70s and Section I was completed in 1973.  It is the largest of the three Sections and has 66 units.  Sections II and III were completed in the late 70s.  While Pine Run is a single condo with a single Board and Association, the three Sections have their own Declarations, budgets and monthly maintenance fees. Pine Run’s Articles of Incorporation and By Laws are common to all three sections. In recent years, the Board has worked to bring the Declarations of the three Sections into closer alignment.


The two pools,  tennis courts, club house and other recreation amenities are used by all owners and have a separate budget that all three Sections contribute to.  Blackburn Point Woods, a separate homeowners association with 44 units built on the original Pine Run property, shares the recreation facilities, participates in all social functions and contributes to the recreation budget.

Home of the Month: Pine Run

It’s easy to find a well-priced condo these days, but to find one that’s architecturally significant, spacious and well-priced—that’s a different matter. And that’s why I’m so taken with this three-bedroom, 2 ½-bath, 1,800 square-foot unit in Pine Run, a complex down in Osprey.

It’s beautifully designed. It has two atriums—actually, atria—and the bedrooms have angled ceilings that go up to 15 feet, with clerestory windows to let in more light. One bedroom is set up as a den and has an impressive wall of bookshelves. The master is on the second floor and has a spectacular bath—one end is like an all-glass conservatory and it leads out to a private terrace. A great deal of care has been given to where the windows are situated, so that while it’s bright and sunny, it’s still completely private.

When I marveled aloud at the quality of the architecture, the realtor told me it had been designed—back in 1973—by Frank Folsom Smith. Well, that explains everything. He’s one of the best architects in town; our offices are in one of his buildings (he also designed Plymouth Harbor.) The current décor is a little too 1980s for my taste, but that would be easy enough to change.

Pine Run is off Blackburn Point Road, just a short walk from Casey Key. It’s a pleasant, woodsy place with a beautiful pool. This unit (358 Pine Run Drive, # 358) is one of the largest in the complex and is priced at $159,000. The monthly charges are $492. Call Carolyn Kenney at (941) 223-7111.

P.S. Sorry, the realtor just called—it's been sold. I'll keep you informed about other Pine Run listings.
