The owners, family and friends call this hallmark, historically detailed property, the Boat House of Pass-a-Grille. Located in a niche area known as the Malibu of Tampa Bay, living in the Boathouse is living in elegance. The owners valued and sought both an historic exterior and yet a transitional interior design. The split-level Key West style home with Hardie concrete lap siding and a metal roof was solidly built in 2010 by premier builder, Jeff Wolf. Within the wrap-around porch with French doors, the interior has extensive, carefully crafted soft white elements of wainscoting, coffered ceilings and crown molding. Todays modern conveniences and amenities (including a three station elevator) are incorporated throughout. The living, dining and kitchen spaces all overlook the blue waters of the bayou. In addition to a large living area, there is a fully equipped kitchen and pantry with an open concept dining area. A guest powder bath is nearby along with an office nook. The second and third floors house the four en-suite bedrooms, including the master bedroom suite with captivating water views and a deck for morning coffee and evening beverages. With privacy on both sides, the large back yard has a full-sized seating deck over the water, all leading to a dock with a 15,000 lb. boat lift. The Pass-a-Grille channel provides a short boat ride to the open Gulf waters. Walk a couple of short blocks to the number #1 ranked U.S. Beach. Also walk (or a ride a golf cart) to the Don CeSar and all St. Pete Beach has to offer. Stroll to the nearby St. Petersburg Yacht Club at Pass-a-Grille and several restaurants. Quick access to i-275, downtown St. Petersburg and Tampas airports.
