This magnificent Terra Ceia island bay front french country estate is unlike any you have toured in the area. The unique story of the design, build quality and inspiration are unheard of with a home built over 100 years ago. The woman that designed the home was living in New York and hired a boat builder from Finland as a true European craftsman to build this home that took over a decade to complete starting in 1910. The walls are a solid 1 foot thick stone and the interior walls are plaster with a layer of tar soaked burlap in between to ensure no moisture issues. The main home is a 3 bedroom and 3.5 bath 2 story and there is a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment above the garage. Just west of the main house is the composite dock and 2 boat lifts. This leads to the bayou and Gulf of Mexico with no bridges in between and in the middle of the Skyway bridge, Tampa, St. Pete, Bradenton and Sarasota all with the amazing unique sunsets that you get to experience every night. The location is perfect for the boating enthusiast. The master bedroom, with sweet bay views, has real wood floors and is located on the 1st floor and was an addition to the original home. Also on the 1st floor is a living, dining and family room as well as a screened lanai. The kitchen was just renovated with all wood cabinets, beautiful counters and all new appliances. Real wood floors encompass the entire upstairs where there are 2 additional bedrooms and one is a en-suite that was previously the master bedroom. There is also a study/den upstairs as well as a full bath in the hallway. Both bedrooms and the study/den have the beautiful bay views too. The custom built pool and spa encompasses the backyard and highlights the stunning lawn and landscaping of this magnificent estate. There is an exercise room attached to the back of the garage and an adjacent storage broom for pool supplies and yard equipment. THIS is the epitome of a Florida lifestyle and Terra Ceia is very eclectic and unique island that is special to all that live there. Click on the links for a 3D tour and custom video.
