The Customized Home Raises the Bar for Penthouse Living
The crown jewel of The Sanctuary at Alexandra Place has been sold. The top two stories of the boutique luxury tower were completely customized to create a spacious, three-story penthouse with private roof-top terrace pool that is currently the largest condo in Tampa. The penthouse is 7,366 square feet and combines the building's 17th and 18th floors, to form a single-family home that includes two floors of living space, an elegant interior stairway, and a private rooftop terrace on the third level. The Sanctuary's penthouse sale set a new condominium price record for the City of Tampa.
“With a private rooftop pool and three floors of spacious living, this home was completely customized to create a home that is the trophy property of Bayshore Boulevard. Demand to live in The Sanctuary exceeded our expectations and proved that the Tampa Bay market is craving unique properties,” says David Moyer, Director of Sales, Developer Services, Smith & Associates Real Estate.
The home has 5-bedrooms, 5-bathrooms, and three half-baths, plus media room, library, gym, den, and a uniquely designed 3-way gas fireplace. Large outdoor terraces offer stunning waterfront and city skyline views along with an interior that is filled with natural light thanks to the 20-vertical feet of window walls overlooking iconic Bayshore Boulevard.
Using design inspiration from luxury penthouses found in larger markets like Miami and New York City, local architect Tim Clemmons, Place Architecture, maximized the three-story home’s waterfront views with four expansive terraces. The terraces extend the living space to the outside from the family room, great room, dining room, and kitchen, and on the second floor, from the library, and owner’s suite. The private terrace on the third floor has an infinity pool, fire pit, outdoor kitchen and offers 1,939 square feet of rooftop entertainment space.
“This three-story penthouse is unlike any other condominium available in this area. With a private rooftop pool on its third level, this home sets the bar for what is possible in Tampa Bay’s real estate market,” says Bob Glaser, President and CEO, Smith & Associates Real Estate.
The developers of The Sanctuary, Taub Entities, led by long-time Tampa residents, Debbie and Brian Taub, aimed to craft a design that would accommodate the buyer looking for a more spacious and private layout. The Taub’s said The Sanctuary’s sales prove that the Tampa market is ripe for discerning homebuyers who want the privacy of owning a single-family home with all the conveniences that high-rise living has to offer.
