Portofino offers condominium living at its finest. It was the first condominium built at Hammock Dunes by WCI, developer of more than 40 luxury Florida high-rise towers, and was completed in June 2003. Situated directly on the Atlantic Ocean within the Hammock Dunes golf community, it is an eleven-story luxury condominium with 58 spacious and tastefully appointed units, ranging in size from 2,090 sq. ft. to 4,780 sq. ft. With six distinctive floor plans, the designs capture breathtaking ocean views while offering residents a delightfully casual life style on the beach. Adding to Portofino’s appeal is its proximity to the Hammock Dunes Club, with the Clubhouse, the Tom Fazio Links Golf Course, a golf practice area, and two professional six-wicket croquet courts all within walking distance.
The finer features of Portofino’s condominiums include 10-ft. ceiling heights in the 9th, 10th, and 11th floor units, direct ocean-front balconies, west-facing sunset balconies, private elevator foyers, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, custom cabinetry, large master bedroom suites with walk-in closets, jetted bathtubs and separate walk-in showers, and high-efficiency heating and air conditioning systems. Many residents remark that living at Portofino feels like being a privileged guest at a fine oceanfront resort, but without the crowds and vacationers so common at such resorts.
That premier resort feeling begins at the front door. Stunning ocean views beckon as you walk into the richly appointed entry foyer and continue into the handsomely furnished Grand Salon. Just beyond the spacious Salon, a social room includes an inviting media lounge with four televisions and a fully equipped catering kitchen and a billiard room. Here residents may settle back into comfortably overstuffed chairs and couches while enjoying the morning newspaper, working on the computer, or just relaxing. The social room can accommodate up to 100 people and opens onto an outdoor deck.
Additional amenities on the first floor include a theater room with stadium-style seating and a BOSE surround sound system, two tastefully decorated, roomy guest suites, a mail room, a library, and the office of the building manager. From the first floor or the lower garage level, elevators lead directly to the private elevator foyer of each unit.
Further enhancing Portofino’s attractiveness are (1) an oceanfront fitness center, with sauna and shower facilities, that is available exclusively for owners and guests; and (2) an 1,800 sq. ft. Olympic-style pool, complete with heated jetted spa, and a summer kitchen with three grills with granite counter tops and an under-counter ice maker. There is also a dune walkover leading to the Atlantic Ocean for invigorating ocean swims or leisurely beach walks.
Maintenance and operation of Portofino is the responsibility of a five-person owners’ board assisted by a part time building manager and a full time maintenance engineer. The staff ensures that the surrounding walkways and landscape are impeccably maintained and the building and common areas remain sparkling clean. The yearly operating budget is carefully managed and replacement reserves are fully funded, leaving Portofino in excellent financial condition for years to come.
