Condos for Sale in Dunedin

by Doug Campbell

If you are looking for a wonderful community to live in, and don't want the inconvenience of maintaining a single family home, try looking at condos for sale in Dunedin. There is something for every taste and pocketbook in the condos for sale in Dunedin. Not to mention the unique lifestyle that this Gulf Coast community has to offer.

The Dunedin lifestyle has an eclectic blend of the new, the old and the best part is that it is all fun. There are all kinds of events, from a local seafood festival, to a Wines the Blues festival, to multiple arts and crafts festivals, to movies in the Park on Friday nights, to Mardi Gras, to Cinco de Mayo, to Old Fashioned Christmas, to the Dunedin Holiday Boat Parade, to a rollicking St. Patrick's Day celebration, to Spring Training for Major League Baseball, to an Open Air Farmers Market and so very much more.

The downtown area of Dunedin offers boutique shops, a Mobil Guide rated and nationally known restaurant - the Black Pearl, many other very good restaurants offering food from New York style Pizza to seaside dining to open patio dining. You cannot go hungry if you just walk a couple of blocks through downtown Main Street in Dunedin. Strachan's Hand Made Ice Cream is a must do on Main Street. There is a wide variety of hand made ice cream to choose from, and as a bonus, bring your dog for a special doggie cone from the take out window.

But I digress, you wanted to learn about condos for sale in Dunedin, so there are many that are affordable, priced up to $150,000. These include condos that are in 55+ communities that won't break the budget of retirees. Some of the 55 plus communities have no pets policies, so it is smart to learn about the specific policies of each community. Most condos have rules about pets, with limits on the size and number of pets, with some being small pets only, or even no dogs with one cat OK. Have your Realtor obtain the condo documents so you can determine if the lifestyle of that condo community is right for you.

Dunedin is such a welcoming community. There are lots of parks in the city. Pioneer Park hosts the open air Farmers Market every Friday and Saturday except during the summer. You can find custom roasted coffee beans, specialty breads, fresh local produce and fresh meats and seafood. Friday night movies are a feature in Pioneer Park in the month of April, and it's free.  Weaver Park, right on the water of St. Josephs Sound, hosts the Sunset Concert Series every Friday evening in the month of May. And there is Edgewater Park, by the Dunedin Marina, that hosts the annual Craft Beer Festival. Hammock Park is several acres of quiet walking trails.

If you are an exercise lover, there is the Pinellas Bike Trail. This paved bikepath runs the length of Pinellas County, from Tarpon Springs in the north to St. Petersburg to the south and the Pinellas Bike Trail runs right through downtown Main Street in Dunedin. As you ride along the trail, on the north end of Dunedin, stop at Eli's Bar-B-Que from Thursday thru Saturday for the very best mouth-watering bbq pork and chicken you could ever hope to taste. then ride a little farther south along the trail for the downtown experience, or take a detour over to Honeymoon Island by riding out on the Dunedin Causeway.

Of course, it is not all lifestyle, since you really are looking for condos for sale in Dunedin. There are condos from between $150,000 to $500,000 if you are looking for perhaps waterfront living. One community, Mediterranean Manor, is situated on the water of St. Josephs Sound and is a short walk to the Dunedin Causeway. It has its own private beach and includes free mooring off the beach. There is a park and you can grill with Honeymoon Island only a short distance offshore for a wonderful backdrop.

Royal Stewart Arms is a 55+ community on the Dunedin Causeway in the $150,000 to $250,000 price range. This community is at the entrance to Honeymoon Island, with it's own fishing pier, clubhouse, tennis courts and an incredible view of St. Josephs Sound. This is a no pets community.

For those who are looking for the luxury condo market, Dunedin has that too! The Dunedin Grand is right on the water of St. Josephs Sound and offers spectacular views of Honeymoon Island and our magnificant Dunedin sunsets, which by the way, are free of charge. And there is a new development in Dunedin, 200 Main Street so you can enjoy the latest in building technology and still have the best lifestyle Dunedin has to offer.

Every city has condos for sale. Dunedin not only has condos for sale, it also offers a unique lifestyle to support the condo you buy and call home. Check out Dunedin, you'll be glad you did.

There is the Pinellas Bike Trail, for those who like to get exercise and go somewhere.  You can ride the Pinellas Bike Trail the length of Dunedin, take a side trip over to Honeymoon Island state park, or just stop on the Dunedin Causeway to watch the boaters, or the windsurfers, or other people simply enjoying the view. There is the Dunedin Golf Club, which is the former home of the PGA, with a wonderful clubhouse and restaurant.  Downtown Dunedin has lots of shops, restaurants and plenty of festivals and events during the season.  Coming in November is the Arts Harvest, a major event with juried artworks available for purchase, lots of good food to eat, and many people just enjoying the fall weather.
