Unsurpassed Views and A Chance to Own a Piece of History awaits the buyer of the ‘South House’, a magical 2.75-acre property once associated with the legendary ‘Century Oaks Estate’—which was built on the site of the original Fort Harrison. Positioned at the water’s edge of the deepest and widest part of Clearwater Harbor, the view-inspired residence offers show-stopping views of the Gulf, Sand Key Bridge and the Clearwater skyline. Situated behind a private gate and surrounded by meticulously maintained gardens, the 3,046 square foot single-story design reflects an ambiance of casual elegance throughout. The open floor plan merges the family and dining rooms into one extra-large area that is ideal for entertaining as well as fine Florida living. A fireplace adds warmth and character to primary spaces while walls of glass doors reveal unobstructed Gulf views and open to an expansive terrace and adjoining boat dock. A charming gazebo adorned with stately Corinthian columns makes a delightful conversation area and combines with a swimming pool for an idyllic retreat. The adjacent kitchen is outfitted with an array of storage cabinets, granite countertops, breakfast bar and a cozy nook for casual dining. Private accommodations within the 3-bedroom plan include a master suite of generous proportions featuring a dramatic exposed beamed ceiling and a fireplace. The opportunity to build on the upper bluff of this property is significant for its stunning views and 50-feet elevation above sea level—a rarity for waterfront properties in Florida and precluded from flood insurance requirements. Conveniently located in the heart of Clearwater, the home affords easy access to award-winning Gulf beaches, medical facilities, shopping and dining, and is a short drive to Tampa International Airport, downtown Tampa and St. Petersburg. Formerly known as the estate’s ‘Boat House’, this offering may again be joined with the Century Oaks property which is separately listed.
