Uncommonly grand in scale, retained by the original owner for over 24 years and built by the scion of a notable Florida family, one cannot feel but awestruck by the inherent grandeur and structural integrity of the legendary ( former) Rinker estate. Situated on 1.8 exceptionally well graded acres perched atop a bluff offering commanding Clearwater Harbor, Intracoastal Waterway and the far West horizon panoramas. Timeless architectural standards are well evident throughought this almost 12,000 square foot residence with dual gated entry and highly impressive front and rear facades. From a sweeping Romeo and Juliet staircase with 2 story foyer entry to a Romanesque fountain plaza with 3 tier views overlooking the heated pool with spa, tennis court and a rolling lawn abutting the Harbor's edge. Wrap around Harborside terraces encompass the entire breadth of this incredible property. 1st and 2nd floor master suites with ensuite, French elevator accessible to all levels, a richly paneled study/office, exquisite formal living and dining rooms, a period " Speakeasy" recreation room with bar, poolside cabana, separate guest quarters, and 3+car garage are the many attributes of this legacy estate. Refined with stone, bespoke millwork and tastemaker's cabinetry, the interiors are quite fabulous.
