Built by the renowned builder Samuel Schooley in the 1920s, "The Spanish Castle" sits on nearly a full acre of land in the quaint Old Pasadena, just east of downtown St. Petersburg. The home has maintained many elements of the original 1920's architecture with premium updates to suit the modern lifestyle. Located at 7003 Park Street South, this home is a rare find with lush tropical landscaping and spacious property that is rarely available so close to the stunning St. Petersburg beaches and its vibrant urban core. The home is listed for sale at $3.326 million.
"This, a home that harkens back to Florida's tropical beauty of the past. Every space has been modernized for a luxurious lifestyle yet has unique features that are unattainable in newly constructed homes. The home is geared towards spacious living with beautiful terraces poolside and courtyards for quiet contemplation," says Glen Richardson, Smith & Associates Real Estate associate.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home has 5,374 square feet of space that stay true to its historic architecture with modern elements that offer a luxury feel. The newly renovated kitchen perfectly blends modernized functionality and architectural consistency. An original 1880s draper's table from a silk factory in Lyon, France is a statement piece serving as an island in the kitchen. At the same time, the new Viking appliance suite and custom cabinets appeal to the modern home chef. The kitchen remodel was featured in Cottages and Bungalows Magazine (Oct/Nov 2022 edition).
The home is made for entertaining. A discerning tasting room with extensive wine storage flanks the formal dining room with original Cuban tile floors, elegant chandeliers, and French doors. Then, end your evening in the billiards room with an antique wet bar, wood fireplace, and Saltillo tile floors.
The original primary bedroom, two additional bedrooms, and two full baths are upstairs. The expansive primary suite comprises an entire wing and offers a private tea garden, wood-burning fireplace, his and her custom closets, and a large en suite bath. There is also access to a private balcony in the fountain courtyard.
