With beautiful waterfront properties, wide streets to walk and a tight-knit sense of community, Davis Island’s renaissance has made this area one of the most exclusive and sought out addresses for Tampa Bay homebuyers. Many of the 1950’s concrete block homes have been renovated as home values here soared or have been replaced with magnificently designed larger homes. The most famous address may be the 30,875 square foot celebrity home of Yankee baseball player, Derek Jeter, but residents know there are many unique properties along the coastline of the island.
88 Martinique is one of those distinctive Davis Island homes and is currently listed for sale (as of today 10/10/2016) for $7.5 million dollars. The home offers incredible open water Bay views with the advantage of being able to see the both the sunrise and the sunset. Martinique is the only street on Davis Island to have South Facing Open Bay views.
"Growing up on the island, this street has always held a special place in my heart with its breathtaking South bay facing views. Davis Island has a quaint village of shops and restaurants and also a private airport and yacht basin with miles of bike trails. When you drive onto Davis Island, the stress of the world seems to melt, and you feel like you've gotten away from it all while still being close to everything in Hyde Park or Downtown that you would want to enjoy," says Smith & Associates Real Estate Realtor Julie Lux who is the property listing agent.
The home sits on a large lot and is set back from the road giving some privacy to the homeowner. A backyard dock makes water sports like boating, jet skis, kayaks, stand up paddleboards an option for a day of water fun and watching the dolphins that are known to frequent the Davis Island waters. The home has five bedrooms and six baths and is 7,289 square feet of living space plus a three car garage. The master bedroom has enormous his and hers closets and a sitting room with a fireplace. There is a state-of-the-art gym, a game billiard room, and a theater room making this home a unique property.
