This drop-dead gorgeous luxury waterfront town home on Tierra Verde's Grand Canal is not what you are used to seeing. Updated, decorated, and furnished in truly exquisite taste, this home offers the potential for an unparalleled lifestyle, within and without. Located on the most coveted boating water on the Gulf Coast, it includes an extra large boat slip on deep, protected water that presents the possibility for a multitude of configurations. On the inside, the stunning open kitchen and great room combination looks through a wide spread of windows and sliding glass doors and brings the waterfront feeling inside, blending it perfectly with the high-end interior styling in a way that will make every day of living here an elegant, enjoyable experience. Seemingly endless soapstone countertops are set upon perfectly-configured custom cabinetry to create a magnificent yet understated kitchen that you'll appreciate both when entertaining your inevitable guests and in the inspired day-to-day living that will become your norm. The unique layout of this generously-sized unit gives you a wide variety of spaces, bedrooms, offices, and nooks that can be adopted to multiple uses. Home offices, a yoga studio, guest rooms...this home offers you all of these, and more. And it's not only the interior that will delight you. The outdoor spaces are equally exciting. The deck off the main level has the perfect combination of covered and open space, providing true indoor-outdoor living, the enjoyment of the elements and the protection from them, while the upstairs master bedroom balcony will become your go-to morning ritual, featuring sun, salt air, and wide water views. The tastefulness of the furnishings and decor throughout the entire home cannot be overstated. You'll find each room to be an adventure of well-chosen objects, as if you were living in a complex work of art, both modern yet timeless, austere yet sumptuous, and overridingly livable in every respect. The home also features two separate garages, a single-car garage and a tandem garage, and, unlike almost every other complex on the island, there is even an abundance of extra parking. This means that you'll have room for all of the toys you'll need to fully enjoy your new island lifestyle, and you'll even be able to have guests over without the usual parking hassle. This seems like a small point, until you acclimate to the day-to-day reality of island living, at which point you'll be so thankful you're living in such a rare, upscale complex. This unit has a complete array of new hurricane windows and doors throughout, along with newer A/C systems, water heater, and many other features that make this a truly turn-key and hassle free way to enjoy the best that Tierra Verde has to offer. The island of Tierra Verde is uniquely situated so that you have direct Gulf and intracoastal access by water, and almost instantaneous freeway access by land, which puts the vibrant city of St. Petersburg right at your fingertips. Calculate the drive time to TPA or PIE from here vs other waterfront front communities to understand why this island is considered the gem of the Gulf Coast for people who love the water but also work, travel, and enjoy life to the fullest.
