Built in 1983 and after its namesake, Casa Grande embodies luxurious sized units directly on Vanderbilt Beach. An intimate, gated 10 floor beach front high rise with 26 units of residential living over 9 floors.
Casa Grande offers 3 units per floor with the exception of the first floor with just 2- the interior unit on the first floor is devoted as the buildings social room. A partially enclosed building with 2 screened areas on each floors hallway that not only usher the sunshine and fresh air in but invite beautiful through views to the bay across Gulf Shore Drive.
The 3 bedroom 3 bath units are located at both ends of each floor with magnificent screened lanais that wrap around their back and side for a hands on deck connection to the Gulf as well as lovely views to the bay both from their lanais and guest bedrooms. They approach 2000’ sq ft of interior living. They have a lyrical quality constructed to curve around the ends.
The interior 2 bedroom/ 2 bath unit on each floor include a rare additional half bath/ powder room. These units are particularly private thanks to the construction of Casa Grande with a dividing wall at either end of their lanais to create a complete sense of privacy. A beach front lanai extends the entire length of these units with sliding glass doors end to end that makes for an extraordinary connection to the Gulf. The Master bedroom hugs the Gulf while the wonderfully separate guest room enjoys through views to the bay thanks to the exterior hallways screened opening.
The beach-side pool, sundeck, and catwalk to the beach were beautifully refurbished in 2011 as well as its beach back yard’s dune system completely replanted. Additional amenities include a barbecue station, social room, and extra air conditioned storage. A wonderful on-site Manager holds court 9- 11AM through the week with a long time maintenance staff for the building, too.
Parking is unassigned open with 12 coveted garages in all. A rare gated secondary parking structure is located directly across Gulf Shore Drive for Casa Grande exclusively.
The residents savor their familial spirit and privacy with just 1 lease allowed per year with a 30 day minimum. No pets are allowed.
