At a time when older homes are coming down and newer homes are going up there is one home in Belleair still standing as it has been for over a century. The Victorian mansion named Shady Oaks is one of the oldest yet best preserved examples of Victorian architecture in Florida. This historical marvel has retained its stateliness and grandeur while being restored from the foundation to the roof. Situated on a hard to find double lot there is ample space to add a pool of any size with cabana, a 4 car garage using the plans the owner will provide or build a guest house to accommodate the many friends and family that will want to come visit. This home is steeped in history dating back to one of its owners, Morton Plant, son of the renowned Henry B. Plant, railroad magnate and developer of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Its current owner was careful to preserve its elegant historical features while modernizing the home to meet today's needs. As you enter, you will be warmed with the absolutely gorgeous moldings, millwork, stained glass windows throughout, built-ins as well as all the unique features true Victorians posses. With its close proximity to Clearwater's white sand beaches and amazing sunsets you are also a short distance to restaurants, shopping, schools and within steps to the well known Belleair Country Club. Call today to request a private tour to experience and learn more about this one of a kind property. A true pleasure to show.
