2020 may have had its downsides but they say “good comes from all things” and one thing we’ve all learnt are the advantages of being able to walk to places like shops, and schools and restaurants. Indeed in the UK, we are seeing many people looking to return to urban living.
The listing agent, Traci Burns, says “Urban Living doesn’t get any better than this waterfront gem located on beautiful Harbour Island, an oasis in the Heart of the City with convenient walkable access to Downtown, Tampa’s iconic Bayshore Boulevard, Amalie Arena (concerts & hockey games), The Riverwalk, Sparkman Wharf, I-275 & LeeRoy Selmon Expressway.
This treasure is positioned on the largest waterfront home site on the Island (outside of The Pointe where homes are $6 million+), and was solidly constructed and custom designed to take full advantage of the amazing water frontage it provides.
With nearly 7700 sq ft of living space, there is plenty of room for large or extended family and wonderful indoor and outdoor entertaining. The floorplan provides a large great room connected to the kitchen which opens to the beckoning pool and amazing waterfront where you’ll find a boaters paradise with access to deep water dockage equipped with shore power and water providing perfect space for your large yacht in water, plus a boat on a 16,000 lb capacity lift and a separate jet ski lift. Simply put, this is a water enthusiasts dream with access to the Bay and Gulf of Mexico where one can enjoy a day on the large waters fishing, or simply take your boat or jet ski to one of many destinations along Tampa’s urban waterfront including Ulele, Jacksons, American Social, Ricks on the River or Circles on the Water. In addition, this is a front row seat for Tampa’s Gasparilla Invasion that takes place each year in January.
Not into boating?? That’s okay . . . . . you’ll seamlessly enjoy the waterfront views where dolphin play and rowers row capped with amazing evening skies and sunsets. Back inside the home you’ll find comfortable living spaces with formal living, dining, parlour, a downstairs bedroom w/ en suite bath, media room, two separate office spaces and 5 bedrooms on the 2nd floor. The masters suite is spacious and opens to a large 2nd floor balcony overlooking the pool waterfront, and includes two separate walk in closets with loads of storage and so much more. In addition, the home includes a 4-car attached garage, a rarity in this urban community. Harbour Island offers a unique lifestyle in this meticulously planned community with parks, playground, continuous water walk all with convenient access to loads of great restaurants, arts, entertainment, and the emerging $3 Billion Water Street neighbourhood, while maintaining incomparable privacy with 24-hr controlled access security.”
