Mansion Monday: Indoor-Outdoor Elegance on Davis Islands
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 home at 64 Martinique Ave. is listed for $9,350,000 by The Toni Everett Co. For further info, go to theeverettcompany.com.
