Mansion Monday: Indoor-Outdoor Elegance on Davis Islands

The custom paved driveway leads to an oversized garage equipped for three cars.

The 6-bedroom, 7-bath home, offered by The Toni Everett Co. at $9,350,000, offers an uncommon mix of elegant design and family-friendly amenities.

Readers of this column know I have an aversion to the cookie-cutter pseudo-Spanish mini-mansions that clutter so much of our Florida architectural landscape — what I call “piles with tiles.” But the home at 64 Martinique Avenue on Davis Islands is the exception to the rule: a graceful contemporary adaptation of the style which is anything but cookie-cutter. Not only is it beautiful, it manages to combine refined design with family-friendliness — a home suitable for opulent dinner parties and spirited game nights, equal parts traditional comfort and high-tech innovation (including a a Savant automated music and entertainment system). Add sweeping views of Old Hillsborough Bay and the exclusive Davis Islands address (a four-minute drive from the GOAT’s one-time rental) , and you’ve got a truly exceptional property.

The living room, like so many rooms in the house, offers an panoramic view of Old Hillsborough Bay.
The light-filled office space, directly off the foyer.
The elegant formal dining area….
… and a breakfast room with a view.
The kitchen has it all: quartz countertops, a large Wolf gas cooktop, a pot filler over the stove, two Bosch dishwashers, a vegetable sink, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, two Wolf ovens with convection and warming drawer, and a wine refrigerator.
The master suite, with a private balcony overlooking the water, his-and-hers walk-in closets, a coffee bar with refrigerator and…
…and en suite master bath with a Mr.Steam Shower.
A home gym with a view.
Family fun is assured in the game loft.
The heated pool and spa and generous covered patio areas, which are protected from unwanted visitors by a mosquito misting system.
Water, water everywhere.
The outdoor living room.
The outdoor kitchen and patio table.
The view from the patio table.
