An open house at Villa di Lancia is one opportunity that luxury condominium buyers on Longboat Key wouldn’t want to miss. Such occasions are rare, and some realtors may even reserve tours of this community only to a few of their favored clients.
The chance of owning a Villa di Lancia home comes rare firstly because this community is composed of just 37 residences. Their features are so superior and loveable that long-term ownership is the trend for these properties.
A Villa di Lancia residence for keeps indeed looks quite tempting with this condominium’s superb beachfront site on the block of 2165‒2185 Gulf of Mexico Drive. This property was developed with two midrise residential buildings designed in a Mediterranean architectural style perfect for its location.
Glee at the Gulf-front
Their meticulous layout makes the most of the gulf-front location. The two condominium buildings, built in 1996, were laid out as an inverted “V.” The open end faces the Longboat Key beach, thus allowing all the residences unobstructed views of the scenic Gulf of Mexico waters.
The amenities of Villa di Lancia residences for sale revolve around the delights of the property’s 430-foot private beach accessible via a paved walkway. Between the property’s two buildings toward the gulf front, there’s a heated pool and spa. The condominium also features two tennis courts and a clubhouse with a fitness center, a meeting room, and catering kitchen.
Life is peaceful and quiet at Villa di Lancia which has a guarded gate manned with 24-hour security personnel. Lush tropical landscaping cradles this community, and its grounds are very well maintained as evident in the property’s lush trees and verdant shrubbery.
Stylish Condominium Interiors
These eye-pleasing features are replicated in the wondrous gulf vistas within the Villa di Lancia community and from their spacious terraces. These residences are also coveted for their stylish finish, such as all-white cabinetry, glamorous marble baths and custom-fitted closets. The upper floor residences are served by private elevators, while the rest of the homes were conveniently designed as walk-down residences.
Turnover at Villa di Lancia in recent years was quite slow, with only one sale listed in late 2016. Priced at $1.6 million, this residence has three bedrooms and three baths within a floor area of 2,448 square feet. Market activity in this community was recorded on just four residences in 2014 and 2015, further indicating its owners’ inclination to hold on to their homes.
