The residences at the Promenade are homes that many of their owners are prone to keep for the long term, and here’s why. Firstly, this condominium is located in a coveted 6.5-acre beachfront site at 1211 Gulf of Mexico Drive. Its grounds were meticulously developed and have been well-maintained, resulting in a beautifully landscaped community perfect to live in.
Likewise, it’s easy to fall in love with the Promenade’s endearing architectural design and splendid residential features. Given this, it comes as no surprise that about one fourth of its 112 residences are occupied by year-round residents. It also helps that rentals in this property have a twice-a-year limit with a three-month minimum per lease.
The Promenade condominium building was built in 1985, featuring 11 stories and a slew of amenities for its residents. A complete revamp of the building’s hallways, including electrical and HVAC improvements, is scheduled to wind up in 2017.
This condominium owns the bragging rights of having one of the largest swimming pools on Longboat Key. This heated pool is suited for lap swimming or for plain relaxation and is accomopanied by a nearby whirlpool spa overlooking the gulf waters. There are outdoor entertainment areas equipped with gas grills as well.
In addition, the Promenade has four Har-Tru tennis courts, a couple of which are lighted for night play. The community likewise offers separate, fully equipped health clubs for men and women. The residents have two social rooms—The Tea Room and The Hunt Club—which regularly hosts various types of gatherings, such as lectures and movie showings.
