We’re starting our Sunday Real Estate tour at a $7.8 million waterfront mansion in the highly desirable St. Petersburg, and then we travel to a cozy, luxury cottage in Safety Harbor. We’ll throw on our cowboy or cowgirl boots and head to Dade City to explore farm living at a house on 14 acres with two ponds. The last stop includes beach fun at a $1.5 million mansion in Miami Beach
The pool cabana doubles as a laundry room complete with washer/dryer hook-ups and a half bath. The pool’s been upgraded with a pebble tech surface and offers a walk-out deck, making a great space to put your chair in the water.
Step into the Florida room foyer offering a room of windows overlooking the front yard oasis. The hardwood flooring in the main living room was salvaged from a nearby Belleair estate. There’s an adjacent sitting room with a fireplace and built-in shelving.
Each room offers vintage detailing including molding and window casings.
The kitchen is open to the dining with a pass-thru bar and is complete with white cabinets, tile back splash and granite tops, a cooking island with storage and stainless appliances including a flat top stove; and farm sink. The extra under-the-stair storage has pull-outs making storing kitchen appliances a breeze.
The master suite, which was an addition to the home, includes an office niche foyer, double door entry to an oversized retreat with French doors to the pool and a bath that offers double sinks, a makeup niche, a step-in shower and a barn door walk-in closet. It also features French doors to the front yard patio and an additional walk in.
The second bedroom has a view of the pool and is next to the full guest bath which has just been updated with a glass barn door, pedestal sink and storage cabinets with pull-out drawers.
Upstairs is the third bedroom with en suite. It is currently a half bath but is plumbed for a shower.
Other features include a tankless water heater, bigger baseboards throughout; no carpet; fresh exterior paint; subfloors redone in the kitchen and dining room; a new sprinkler system; landscape lighting; and a saltwater pool.
The home is within walking distance of Safety Harbor’s eateries, main street festivities and the new boardwalk along the bay.
