If privacy, luxury and romance are what you're seeking in a home, welcome to your very own 10,000 square foot fairytale estate. A private compound on three quarters of an acre surrounded by a 7' tall, solid stone privacy wall, with three iron driveway entry gates and an iron front entrance walk-through gate as well.  Twelve security cameras survey the estate with both exterior and interior coverage and remote access for the owner’s peace of mind.


As to the luxury and romance, this 1920's mansion has been significantly renovated to meet today’s modern standards while keeping the original, classic grandeur found only in homes of this vintage.  Volume ceilings with finely finished wood detail, moldings, and custom period iron-work are found throughout.  A one of a kind 1,100 square foot master suite with fireplace, original Cuban tile floors, restored ceiling beams and a luxury en-suite bath which cannot be rivaled.  The chef’s kitchen is expansive with all of the amenities one would expect of such a property to allow for gracious entertaining.  Wolf and Subzero appliances, exotic granite, and huge walk in pantry. The grand salon is truly “grand” with 13’ ceilings, imported limestone flooring, an original seven foot tall stone fireplace and many other custom features from the 2016 renovation. 


You will find the grounds to be as graceful and beautiful as the home itself.  A marble open-air veranda overlooks the gardens which includes 80+ palm trees, flowering bougainvillea, fruit trees, fountains, and views of the golf course intra-coastal waterway in the distance. The custom pool with in-ground spa and marble pool deck offers nearly 3,000 square feet of additional outdoor entertaining space set amongst the lush gardens and lawns. This unique property is the only one of its kind in Tampa Bay.
