Ventana equals luxurious urban living
For many people, an urban home is the answer to a dream. They desire to live closer to work, to live in the middle of the action or both. Ventana, in the Channel District of downtown Tampa, represents the ultimate in luxury and convenience in an urban residence, according to Henderson Everett-Lee of the Toni Everett Co. At Channelside Drive and Kennedy Boulevard, Ventana is in a prime location, she says. The condiminium complex is within a block of the Leroy Selmon Expressway and just a few minutes from interstates 75 and 4. A trolley stop affords residents easy access to Ybor City, the Florida Aquarium, Channelside Bay Plaza and the St. Pete Times Forum. Museums, restaurants, clubs and the Tampa Theatre also are nearby. Everett-Lee says residents of the 11-story condominium building also have plenty of amenities to enjoy at home."Ventana is a beautiful building on the outside, but the inside is a must-see," she says. "The interior is airy and happy with colorful hallways. The two buildings open into a fabulous intimate entertainment area near the pool and barbecue area. The outdoor and indoor amenities are perfect for dinners or watching football poolside or in the beautifully appointed recreation center. "Lush landscaping and spectacular views add to the luxurious amenities of the Ventana, which include a state-of-the-art fitness center and sauna and a sophisticated media and club room." She adds that a concierge service is available to help residents take advantage of everything their urban home has to offer. The 84 residences in Ventana feature up to three bedrooms and three bathrooms and provide 1,100 to more than 2,600 square feet of living space. "The best part of the residences are the high ceilings and large units," Everett-Lee says. "Some units are so large that they can have optional enclosed dens or enclosed bedrooms for more privacy. And expansive floor-to-ceiling windows flood the residences with natural light." Each residence includes a terrace or balcony that overlooks downtown Tampa, the Channel District or the port waterfront and at least one secured garage parking space (most have two spaces on the second and third levels of the building, she adds). The residences in Ventana offer a level of urban sophistication that "is more refined than lofts and more intimate than towers," Everett-Lee says. And considering the amenities, views and location, the cost of a Ventana home, from the low $300,000s to the $500,000s, is surprisingly affordable, she says.
