About our home

Drive up to this beautiful acre+ property and immediately feel the privacy behind the 8 foot high hedges. Swaying palm trees, tropical landscaping, and two bench swings enable you to relax sipping your morning coffee while watching the Florida birds dry their wings on the dock of this lakefront hideaway. Depending on the season, enjoy the scent of blooming jasmine or heady fragrant gardenias, pick a grapefruit from the tree or marvel at the huge, snaking roots of the giant ficus tree.

Or, simply jump into the refreshing pool or the warming hot tub after a fun and sun filled day at the gorgeous white sand beaches of St. Petersburg just minutes away. Sip your favorite cocktail prepared at the wet bar in the family room, bring your friends, and enjoy!

What defines this property is the spacious, cool indoors made all the more enjoyable by the privacy and quiet of the neighborhood.

This gorgeous three bedroom, den, family room with wet bar, FOUR bathroom house is what you are looking for to recharge your batteries and have fun!

As you enter, gurgling fountains inside and out greet you, and the spacious dining room and sunken living room are light filled and airy with hardwood, tile, and cork floors, cathedral ceilings and french doors throughout leading to the pool deck.

Sleeps up to 9 (one King, 2 Queens, 1 full, 1 single), including 2 in the den on the futon couch. Each of the three bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom and the fourth bathroom off the den doubles as a pool bathroom with entrances from the pool, the lake front or the house. It even has a huge double entry shower and skylights!

Cook in the spacious kitchen open to the family room while chatting with your friends or feeding the children at the bar. Every room has a ceiling fan to cool you even without the AC, each bedroom has bahama shutters and the master bedroom opens to both the pool deck and the lake front. The master bedroom has 4 huge closets, built in shelves and cupboards with fantastic tropical murals by a South Beach artist! Monthly landscaping, security system and weekly pool service included.

This house also has a FANTASTIC location! You are less than 3 miles from St. Pete Beach where the magnificent historic hotel, the Don Cesar presides over endless white sand beaches. Your choice of Publix or Sweetbay supermarkets are within a mile and downtown St. Petersburg is less than 10 minutes away. St Petersburg is like a little Riviera town: great restaurants, shops, art galleries and boats bobbing in the marina and another turn of the century historic hotel, the Renaissance Vinoy. Impressive collections at the Museum Of Fine Arts, The Salvador Dali Museum, the St. Pete Museum Of History and now the new Chihuly Museum provide cultural options for those interested. Numerous golf courses are also available!
