Every decade or so, a home comes on the market that everyone desires. This Italianate Waterfront Estate on over half an acre includes a spacious guest home, all three water lots, dock and a 60-foot heated lap pool.
Redefined with 21st-century amenities it is often referred to as “one of the most architecturally significant homes” in the St. Petersburg area. On a premier location within minutes of downtown St. Petersburg, the landmark two-story estate stands tall overlooking the spectacular sunrises, waterfront and beautiful gardens. A wall encompassing the home’s magnificent elevation highlights the property’s stature and generous outdoor spaces.
Built like a proverbial fortress, with extremely thick brick walls clad in stucco that is dappled in the sunlight, it has a full-size basement, a Ludowici tile roof, beautiful gardens, courtyard and pool area and manicured lawns. Timeless and timely, the 1920’s home has been extensively renovated while remaining sensitive to its architectural design and qualities. Its presence, quality and grandeur could not be replicated today.
There are generously sized entertaining rooms, high ceilings with crown moldings and beautiful hardwood floors. The courtyard terraces, both covered and uncovered, offer grand-scale outdoor entertaining areas. Enjoy the convenience of being located close to downtown and 25 minutes to Tampa International Airport. This home has recently been sold.
