Vanderbilt Beachcomber was originally named Bellagio Grande. To date, the sign in front says Bellagio Grande. Since I held this building open for many years upon its release it will always be “Bellagio” to me so let’s go with it…just remember you must search on Vanderbilt Beachcomber.
Bellagio was built in 2003 on Vanderbilt Bay. Marked by a new, innovative floor plan more spacious than ever seen on these bay waters along with a favorite floor plan carried from Manatee Resort which the architect, J. D. Allen, had also penned.
An elegant 8 story high-rise with 7 floors of residential over the lobby level and under building parking. A gated enclave with 15 luxurious units in all. Two privately keyed elevator banks accessed from under the building provide entry to enclosed foyers for each residence.
The first of the two floor plans are found on the 2nd floor. Open, flowing 3 bedroom 3 bath units with a den and powder room that encompass nearly 2400’ square feet. This floor plan was first seen at Manatee Resort down the street.
The largest floor-plan in Bellagio (and on all of Vanderbilt Bay for that matter) is located on the 3rd through 8th floors with a north and south residence on each. Offering over 3250’ square feet of interior living conceived to maximize the waterfront panorama Gulf to Bay- mesmerizing and broadly encompassing on both sides. Innovative kitchens are at once the center of the great room but cleverly minimized with Butlers pantries to favor the presence of the wrap around waterfront enchantment. Each sprawling 3 en suite bedrooms with a powder room and a spacious den/office. Ceilings rise to 10’feet, sliders and interior doors to 8’. Enormous open terraces boast 650’ square feet of outdoor living with picturesque rod iron railings that honor the building’s design aesthetic.
The third floor units feature magnificent wraparound terraces that encompass some 2016’ square feet of outdoor living.
Amenities include a generous community pool, spa, outdoor pavilion, 8 cabanas and beach access directly across the street. An interior 2nd floor unit was devoted to the amenities with a fitness room, social room, and guest suite with kitchenette.
Bellagio has 11 boat slips with lifts allowed. Like many docks in the area they are subject to a Sovereignty Submerged Land Lease with the State as well as a 6% sales tax upon transfer.
Parking includes 6 double and 2 single garages under building, assigned under building and/or assigned open with extra open guest spaces.
A pet friendly association with 2 dogs up to 30 lbs, cats, and birds allowed. Up to 12 leases are allowed with a 30 day minimum
Gates have been added to the north and south entry points to Bellagio’s under building parking and a lobby phone provides secure access.
Elegant and expansive, Bellagio Grande aka The Vanderbilt Beachcomber has assumed its place as one of the most exclusive buildings on Vanderbilt Bay.
