Land O Lakes
Sun City Center
Where: Clearwater, Florida
For those in the know... the far north end of Clearwater Beach offers the Olde Florida aesthetic we all moved here for... lush, unspoiled foliage and landscaping, private gated and deeded beach accesses, and a short stroll to the many amusements the Renaissance district offers with its restaurants, pubs and charming Island shops. The distinguished and landmarked Carlouel subdivision within this tony stretch of Gulf and Bay presents this newer construction home that allows for vast rooms with volume ceilings, two complimentary master suites - the one offering direct Gulf and shoreline views, the other possessing garden exposures, an open kitchen, elevator access and an enormous downstairs recreational space that is simply cavernous in scope... This property affords geography and water exposures you have been looking for, without the maintenance and logistical issues direct waterfront homes encounter.
Where: St Petersburg, Florida
History comes alive in this impressive Greek Revival home on an expansive corner property. Sip iced tea on the wide wrap around verandas as the sun peaks through the spanish moss of the majestic oak at it's eastern face. Lovingly restored by only its third owner, grace and elegance flow through the home as freely as the beautiful wood floors. Gather the family around the original fireplace or in the large dining room for a meal prepared in the completely renovated kitchen which comes equipped with a Viking 5 burner gas cooktop and 4 door stainless refrigerator. Up the staircase to the second floor you'll find three of the four rooms access the exterior wrap around porch ideally made for morning coffee or an afternoon snooze. While you might expect a home of this stature in a rural area, this is only one block from Beach Drive and just steps from the bustle of downtown where you can visit the Saturday Morning Market, an art exhibit, a world class restaurant or one of the many festivals in our waterfront parks on Tampa Bay. Once owned by a St. Petersburg Pioneer, Poet and Publisher who was famous for the "Sunshine Offer," see it today and be the next owner of this remarkable piece of local history!
