A FULL 2 CAR GARAGE AND UP TO ‘29 FOOT BOAT SLIP W/LIFT CONVEY IN THE SALE OF THIS RARE AND RAREFIED “04” APARTMENT SALE WITHIN THE APTLY NAMED VILLAS DEL MAR. The seller is compelling, I’ll give em that. Gregarious, engaging and smart, but in a visceral way. We meet once, twice now a third time always between 4:00 and 5:00 in the late afternoon. I’m always seated in a sumptuous and well scaled off white sectional placed strategically within the cavernous, yet supremely lucent living and family room. Whether they expect an innate, or instinctual response from me, I am not yet sure of..However, I am Primed for what the most discerning of souls would consider the Prime View within this boutique condominium poised on the northern perimeter of Olde Clearwater Bay, a well known enclave for artists, poets, writers and legendary icons. I must return to the view, as I know this compound well, and this is how it all shakes out: there are two condos per floor offering a semi private elevator vestibule, but separated by three different stacks/towers.The 1’s and 2’s face South and slightly West, but are obstructed by the homes of Venetian Point Drive, and a canal. The 5’s and 6’s though direct waterfront lean towards North Ft. Harrison, and some hustle and bustle. NOW, LET’S TALK ABOUT THE EPICENTER OF THE BUILDING- THE 3’S AND 4’S ENJOYING THAT VERY MIDDLE, OR SWEET SPOT THAT LOOKS DIRECTLY OUT OVER THE WIDE EXPANSE OF CLEARWATER’S HARBOR AS IT DESCENDS INTO ST. JOSEPH’S SOUND WITH THE VARIOUS MARITIME ISLANDS IN THE SOFT AND LONGER DISTANCE, THE FULL BREADTH OF THE DUNEDIN COASTLINE WITH IT’S CAUSEWAY AND BARRIER ISLANDS FULLY EVIDENT. THE RAPTUROUS AFTERNOON SUN YIELDS AMBER GLOW SUNSETS, AS WE TAKE IT ALL IN. Now for our apartment, from the moment the elevator opens a tastefully light and airy dynamic dominates the space, a huge wholly integrated floor plan allows for a seamless approach where the living, dining and family room are open to the relevant walnut, stone and stainless kitchen. A sea of timeless light fawn marble flooring ties the aesthetic together oh so very well. Crisp, white baths with an airy light Gulf Coastal vibe captivate while luxuriant closet built-ins provide ample storage for your sartorial delights. Both the primary and 2nd bedroom offer en-suite baths, and immediate access to the terrace, while the 3rd room serves as a dedicated sleeping space, den, or both. NEW A/C, a seaside pool, and equal walking distance to DOWNTOWN CLEARWATER AND AMERICA’S HOMETOWN, OUR BELOVED DUNEDIN ARE THE MANY ATTRIBUTES OF THIS CONDO HOME.
