Situated on over a half acre of land along with 360ft of open waterfront consisting of FOUR water lots (8ft water depth and extending 45ft from sea wall) this remarkable property reveals a tropical alley of towering palms and tended flower beds of North Shore Park and the wide boulevard along Tampa Bay. This historic home remains one of the last vestiges of an era, where quiet elegance was the order of the day and now accommodates a more modern and casual lifestyle. A beautiful and sweeping circular drive leads to an elegant entrance hall and immediately showcases the excellent proportions of each room with 9 1/2 ft high tray ceilings, 8ft windows (all new hurricane windows upstairs and doors, ) indoor/ outdoor terraces bringing in daylight to every space and a view of the sparkling waters. Life here is chic, tropical and upbeat! A relaxed and open formal living room with white upholstered furniture keeps the room airy yet inviting.
