OUTDOOR HEAVEN, Wonderful Shallow Resort pool and spa with many water features surrounded by a very large Travertine Patio with several lounges for catching some sun while you return e-mails (home has many wireless access points for full connectivity). Incredible Lanai that is very well shaded with custom seating and large TV. Across the pool you will find a Gazebo with a built in natural gas grill, glass door beverage refrigerator, "clear" ice maker, sink and plenty of seating, a foosball table and a half bath with floor to ceiling Travertine wall tile. Large yard with putting green. There are two large dinning tables, one on east side for Breakfast and one of the west side for Lunch / Dinner, or vice versa depending upon the season. Our home is fenced and very private. All of that, and i have still not highlighted our Home which was originally built in 1925 and has been totally restored. Kitchen has what would normally be expected, 48" natural gas Thermador stove, two full size Sub-Zero refrigerators (4 freezer drawers), two extra quiet dishwashers, microwave and all of the usual small appliances (Keurig, toaster, regular coffee maker, coffee bean grinder and blender). Kitchen has an 8 person table, large TV and seating area around the natural gas fireplace. Kitchen faces Lanai / pool. There is a library with two sofas and large TV also off of the kitchen.

Home has a great room with stately fireplace, TV, large sofa, several seats and a dinning table large enough for 10. Ceiling height is over 12 feet. There is also a game room with a pool table, TV, fireplace, and two large sofas.

There are two main bedrooms, one on first level, and one on second. All five bedroom have their own full bath. Bath with first floor main bedroom has six shower heads and a steamer. First floor main bedroom also has a natural gas fireplace.

The home has four king size beds and one double bed.

We are located very close to downtown St. Petersburg and all of the restaurants along Beach Drive, Dali Museum and waterfront parks. We are less than 8 minutes to Rays games, approximately 20 minutes to Pass-a-Grill Beach and approximately 25 minutes to TIA (Tampa International Airport). We are a bit closer to St. Petersburg Clearwater International Airport. For those of you flying private, Albert Whitted Airport is adjacent to downtown St. Petersburg.

All TV's are Apple TV's.

Catering can be arranged should you prefer to have meals provided. We would connect you directly with our caterer to work out the details.

We remain available to answer any questions.

Unique Benefits

Home allows for many spots where your family can be together, and equally important, many spots where you can get alone time. This is especially important if virtually every day of every Holiday includes some form of work. Whether that is Zoom Calls, Conference Calls, Reading Documents or returning a cozillion E-Mails and Phone Calls. Home is set up for working. Some weeks we work as much from home as we do at our offices. And our offices are less than 8 minutes from home.

Why Kids Love It

Resort Pool, Large Yard and proximity to many activities. Hard to get bored at this home and in the Tampa Bay Area.

Area Information

Wonderful quiet neighborhood in the shadow of Downtown St. Petersburg with easy access to the many activities and attractions the Tampa Bay Area has to offer. Starting with the many fine dinning establishments in Downtown. These include but are certainly not limited to Sea Salt, Cassis, Birch & Vine, Brick & Mortar, The Mill, Stillwaters Tavern etc. etc. Also of note is Urban Still House of Horse Soldier Fame which is not in downtown but still convenient. Reservations are recommended for all of these.

Other activities include Rays Baseball games at Tropicana Field (less than a 10 minute drive), Rowdies Soccer Games, boating, fishing, heading to the beach, Dali and other Museums, Busch Gardens, ZooTampa at Lowery Park, Florida Aquarium, waterfront parks, various boutique women's apparel stored etc. etc.

Attractions Within Walking Distance

It is a nice walk down to the water front parks. Many people use the sidewalk along the water to jog. The sidewalk is almost continuous for several miles. There are several restaurants within a couple blocks of the home. First Watch (Breakfast & Lunch), Three Birds and Grand Hacienda.

There is also a world class "competition" swimming pool in the park close to our home. North Shore Pool hosts swim meets on a regular basis. There is also a nice splash pool with slides for kids (and adults i guess) at North Shore Pool.

Favorite Places To Eat

Too many to name. And too many categories to cover. Fine Dinning, Casual, Very Casual, Tapas, Outdoor Dinning, etc. etc. One thing you will not get a recommendation for is a National chain restaurant. Well other than First Watch for Breakfast because it is literally a block and a half away. There are truly too many locally owned restaurants to consider any restaurant in which you could frequent at home or in another City. I will have a list waiting of options for you to consider.

Inside Scoop

I can provide you a route to Tropicana Field that will often get you to the Rays games in less then 10 minutes:)

About the owner: I have been in St. Petersburg since 1964 and I am obviously extremely familiar with everything St. Petersburg. I have been a full time real estate broker ever since graduating college (over 35 years and counting). It is the only career i have ever had, and the only career i want. Real Estate is my FULL time career. My wife is a Board Certified Trial attorney (DEFENSE attorney). Both of our offices have always been in St. Petersburg. We have three boys and typically all of our vacations center around being together. When we travel, we typically go Skiing in Park City or Big Sky or head to Wisconsin to see her family. We are Packers season Ticket Holders. Being in sunny St. Petersburg, we are boaters and one of our boys is an avid golfer. As you can imagine, with this being our family's home, we do not often have guests that are either non-family members or friends.

Why this property? My wife fell in love with this house the second we turned the corner. There was no real estate sign up in the yard when we drove by, but when i went on line, the house had just been placed on the market. We then turned a house into a HOME. We have, and are continuing to raise our three boys in our home. We think of this home as an integral part of our family. As a result of my wife being from the mid-west and being catholic (large families), we are regularly having visitors from the VERY COLD north. It is nice when you live in a place in which friends and family always want to visit. It does not hurt that St. Petersburg holds the records for most sunny days in a row. This is a home we HOPE we never have to sell.
