Vanderbilt Shores consists of 2 beach front high rise’s, the first, built in 1981, named Seville and the 2nd, built 1982, called Barcelona. Count both among the most elegant of the 80’s high rises. They operate together as one condo association.
Seville stands 14 stories tall with 13 floors of residential over its lobby level with 39 units total. Barcelona is 13 stories tall with 12 floors of residential over its lobby with 36 units in all.* Both buildings are wholly enclosed with an elevator in each to carry you to your floors common hallway with 3 residences per floor in each.
Porte cocheres offer cover at the entrance of both buildings. Lobby phones and fob keys provide secure entry. Two very differently designed buildings provide 6 unique floor plans offering some 1560’ sq ft to 1967’ square feet of interior living. A magical up close presence to the Gulf bestows many forever coastal vistas. In addition, the end units in both buildings, depending on their height, offer lovely through views to the bay.
Seville and Barcelona share a full complement of amenities from the beachside pool tucked between them that extends from Seville, a social room with a full service kitchen, and sauna all also located within Seville. A tennis court is situated directly across the street, the full time Manager’s office within Seville, and extra storage in each building. The only association in the Vanderbilt area that includes a separate home for their full time on site maintenance person, too. Short beach paths from behind each building and from the pool area lead to the azure blue sea and Vanderbilt’s sugary sand.
Seville offers an assigned carport for each unit with extra guest spaces outside, and 11 cabanas. Parking at Barcelona includes a total of 8 attached garages, an assigned open parking space, and 36 parking spaces exclusive to Barcelona sited under the elevated tennis court across the street. Barcelona has 10 cabanas.
Both buildings limit leases to 3 times per year with a 30 day minimum and maintain a no pet policy.
*Counting stories in buildings is a confusing business with no set standard. For the purposes of this website the ground floor is counted as the first floor. Buyer beware: we are a superstitious species. You will not find a single building in the Vanderbilt area with a unit floor numbered 13- it is simply skipped over. So if you find yourself in an elevator going to the 14th floor……13 is REALLY a fine number. (:
