Babe Ruth, “The Great Bambino”, once called this waterfront estate in Tampa Bay his winter home. At one point the home was on the market for $3.35M, however, it recently sold this last year for $2.4M.
The Italian Style Villa is 7,683 sq-ft with 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. It was originally built in 1928, although has undergone several renovations since Ruth lived there, and just went through a 3 year 100% renovation that if you didn’t know, looks original.
The home includes French clay tile floors, beamed and coffered ceilings, tall arched windows that fill the rooms with natural sunlight, arched doors, distressed woodworking, limestone stone finishes, 100’s of design elements imported from NY, a Tuscany gourmet kitchen, a wine room that models an old world vineyard, restored handrails, balusters, columns, a game room, billiards room, 2 enclosed sun-rooms, office, den, guest suite, 3 balconies, 5 sitting rooms, an outdoor pool & spa, imported English greenhouse, a hobby house, a boat house on 150 ft of seawall that also has a boat lift, dual jet ski lifts, tie poles for a large cruiser, and not to mention the history that comes with sharing the home of the great baseball legend, Babe Ruth.
