What can one say? A fabulous Davis Island home & lot. This home is in super move-in condition; perfect for someone wanting to scale down from a huge mansion yet wants elegant, relaxed living on the water. It has one of the best open bay views on the island. Designed by Gene Leedy, noted contemporary architect of the time, for Dr. and Mrs. Rubios family. This spectacular waterfront residence on the open bay has been newly renovated & will satisfy even the most discriminating taste. The home is flavored with Mediterranean architectural details. Wrought iron gates surround the entrance to the court yard. Florida sunsets over Hillsborough Bay provide spectacular backdrops for evening entertaining or quiet relaxation. The property has a private 60 foot dock with water and electric for the avid boater. In the distance, the lights of Bayshore Boulevard provide pinpoints of color and the prevailing ambiance is one of balance and serenity with three lushly landscaped courtyards & a feeling of privacy; yet only 5 minutes from downtown Tampa. This home is set back with paved auto court, garages and guest suite. The elongated entries and the various courtyards provide such a romantic ambiance. The U shaped house design allows for views of water and pool and sunsets from most of the rooms. After walking through the long lushly landscaped courtyard the entry with beveled glass doors & flooring with contrasting marble and dark granite inserts invites you into this light & airy home.
