Historic Clearwater-Area Estate
Overlooking Belleair Country Club, this spacious estate with an outdoor oasis and pool offers the very best of modern luxury, privacy, and historic charm.
This truly one-of-a-kind historic home is nestled on a walled-in corner lot in the Belleair Estates, overlooking Belleair Golf Club – Florida’s oldest golf club. Built circa 1920 in the Mediterranean Revival style, the 7,517± home has been updated to include all the modern amenities you would expect, while maintaining the estate’s original charm. From the minute you step in, you quickly realize that every brick and tile was laid with precision and care. Once inside, the beautiful custom-made wrought ironwork on the staircase catches your eye immediately. From there, make your way to the incredible great room, perfect for entertaining. The tall, beamed ceilings are complimented by the exquisite fireplace. As you explore the first floor, discover the immaculately finished dining room and Chef’s kitchen, fitted with all stainless-steel appliances by Wolf and Subzero. Immerse yourself in the sunroom, with 180 degrees of windows to enjoy the sun whilst staying cool indoors. Make your way up the beautiful dark wood grand staircase to find four of the six total bedrooms, including the stunning and spacious master suite with sparkling water views of Clearwater Pass. On the opposite side of the home, enjoy another staircase to the other two bedrooms with full bathroom and living room, with perfect potential to serve as an in-law suite or kids’ wing. The captivating home boasts a basement, which could be converted into a wine cellar. Sitting on a 0.63± acre, walled-in lot, unique to the area, the home is perfect for anyone desiring privacy. The beautiful swimming pool is complimented by the oversized travertine deck, and if you want to spend a day in the sand and ocean, you are just minutes away from some of the nation’s best and award-winning beaches.
