Few properties in Florida are as spectacular as Aria, a mid-rise beachfront condominium that looks like it should be continuously featured on the cover of architectural design magazines. Located across the road from the Longboat Key Country Club, Aria boasts a style that is reminiscent of the most elegant properties in the Bahamas or Miami Beach.
The five-story Aria condo sits right in front of a dazzling stretch of white-sand beach; there are only 16 custom-built residences plus a historical villa that doubles as clubhouse and guest quarters. Every single aspect of Aria has been developed with luxury in mind; the spacious floor plans offer at least 3,800 square feet under air conditioning, and they are packed with extras such as wrap-around balconies, roof terraces, glass railings, alfresco kitchen, private spa, panoramic windows, smart home automation system, designer kitchen, and private three-car garage.
The Aria Residents Club is where homeowners and their guests can enjoy a luxurious swimming pool complete with a rain curtain and views of the ocean. This clubhouse is a seaside villa that has been remodeled to evoke its original 1935 architectural style and interior decor; some of the amenities include a wine cellar, dining hall with full view of the Gulf of Mexico, catering kitchen, yoga studio, massage room, and overnight guest suite.
The location of this splendid property could not be any better; besides sitting right in front of the ocean, Aria is also within walking distance of the Bay Isles shopping center of Longboat Key, which happens to be anchored by a Publix Greenwise Market, a CVS drugstore and a Bank of America branch. Aria residents can find even more shopping options in the upscale St. Armands Circle, a 15-minute drive away.
As can be expected, the grand opening of Aria a few years ago resulted in all units selling out rather quickly. One of the three-bedroom penthouse units listed in late 2018 for $6.1 million; the rest of the properties do not come on the market very often, but their value continues to appreciate.
