The Contrarian: As the very definition reads: A person who goes against the grain, and rebels against the status quo, with a foresight and hindsight unmatched. So, welcome to the Contrarian's Den..But, first let me ask You..Would He, or She or They accept less than a full floor of the most engaging views in all of Tampa Bay?..Certainly not, don't be silly. IMAGINE A WHOLE FLOOR THROUGH WITH 4 UNABATED EXPOSURES, 7,300 SQUARE FEET W/ 4 EN-SUITES, TOO MANY TERRACES TO COUNT & 4 UNDER THE BUILDING PARKING SPACES, AND THAT'S JUST THE BEGINNING...FROM THIS 22ND FLOOR OVATION HOME IN THE LITERAL SKY EXPECT FULL PANORAMAS OVER ALL OF TAMPA BAY, IT'S VERY COAST AND SKYLINE, ALBERT WHITTED AIRPORT, THE YACHT BASIN BELOW, THE SIGNIFICANT MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, THE HISTORICAL VINOY COMPOUND, STRAUB PARK, THE ST. PETERSBURG YACHT CLUB, THE ICONIC ST. PETE PÍER, THE COMPLETE DOWNTOWN TAMPA CORE, YEAR LONG SUNSETS & EVERY OTHER LANDMARK I'VE FORGOTTEN TO MENTION. As a singular elevator ride from one of two very private elevator vestibules proves, the legendary, yet modern Ovation Compound, which is anchored by the renowned Cassis Bistro, and the very charming Bacchus- a re-interpreted version of a new world wine gastropub, sits in the epicenter of The Valley we aspire to: Beach Drive. Within very short steps one finds one culinary wunkerkind after another: BellaBrava, The Stillwater Tavern, The ParkShore Grille, 400 Beach Seafood & Tap, Ruth Chris's Steakhouse and I could go on for days. Culturally, the Museum Is at your doorstep while the Mahaffey and Dali are 2 blocks away. Back to our home: A full double sided living and family room encased in floor to ceiling windows with side sitting areas, a dedicated dining arena and an integrated kitchen w/walk-in pantry(as a room)await. The primary suite, and en-suite carries itself well with an adjacent library or office plus an auxiliary bedroom that may become a volume walk-in closet. 3 more bedrooms as en-suites lend for extraordinary living. The aforementioned strength as a home beckons here: THERE IS BOTH A MEDIA ROOM AND AN ADDITIONAL OFFICE W/MULTIMEDIA CAPABILITIES ENSCONCED IN EXQUISITE BUILT-INS. The finishes? They're thoughtful with darker integrated custom cabinetry, world exclusive appliances, stone counters, timeless nurturing wood floors that may be both transitional and earthy et al., Multiple half baths/powder rooms, laundry/utility centers with sublime closet and storage implementations further the cause of this Home Within The St.Petersburg Sky. Let's skip the amenities, but we can't, can we? Okay, a regulation pool, outdoor spa, state of the art fitness, Grand social room and the artsiest lobby, EVER. I AWAIT THE CONTRARIAN WITHIN YOU..
