LTD VISITS: LA TARAZZA AT THE GROVE
THE GROVE COUNTRY CLUB ESTATES have been a well established real estate location in Second Life for well over 4 years and it is a business that continues to grow. Is it the largest estate on the grid? No. But it is one of the best designed and it continues to hold the standard and quality of one of the most beautifully landscaped and realistic locations in our virtual world.
LA TARAZZA AT THE GROVE is the latest expansion to the estates, providing visitors with a beautifully designed and photogenic retail sim to explore. This new location opened to the public this past weekend and although some of the retail space is occupied, there are a lot of spaces for rent.
Retail rentals vary in price, depending on the size of the build you are interested in. During our visit, we found that smaller stores are priced around $L900 per month, and the larger spaces are upwards of $L3,000. There are some wonderful businesses already present at LaTarazza, including STYLESL, an interior design firm whose store is beautifully decorated on the inside and has an attractive curb appeal, as does every other build on the sim.
Other highlights on the sim, built by Kimmera Madison, include a picturesque hilltop chapel, a romantic fountain in the town square, one of the largest greenhouses you will see, filled with plants, trees and hanging lights, Art galleries and so much more. The Grove team have done a fantastic job bringing the spirit and feeling of the Mediterranean to virtual life and it is great to see it continue to blossom. Not a resident of The Grove? Don’t own a store? We recommend you visit anyway. It is a great spot to explore and take photos! If you are interested in a space here, please contact Crito Galtier for more details.
