Property Description

The Kellogg Mansion, built-in 1925, was originally known as Villa Marina in Dunedin Isles. This historical Mediterranean masterpiece is located on Buena Vista Dr just a few minutes from downtown Dunedin, known for its quaint and friendly atmosphere. This Mizner insured structure, surrounded by exotic flora, is a perfect example of architectural genius and breathtaking views. With 5 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, and 2 half baths, this 7700 sq ft home sits on more than an acre and is discreetly tucked away for privacy and convenience. The view from this home and private dock provide an unobstructed view of Caladesi and Honeymoon Islands, complete with amazing Florida sunsets. This spectacular jewel with marble floor entree, Moorish arches, columns, curved Spanish inspired staircase, mosaic tile, and original 1925 chandelier highlights the many rare aspects of this Renaissance home. The mystique doesn't end there. The nearby elevator awaits to take you to the second story boasting a floor to ceiling arched window to overlook the water and surrounding islands. Double doors lead to the master bedroom which is beyond description. The cherry wood canopy bed, cabinets, and trim were carved from trees from Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. The spacious master bath with two pedestal sinks is finished with imported marble tile, and the jacuzzi tub would comfortably seat four. A secluded walk-in shower and private privy and bidet are all done in handset tile. Adjoining mirrored dressing room is complete with makeup vanity, extra seating, and skylight. Also, the upstairs area boasts another full kitchen, outside Tiki Bar, and your own private disco/ entertainment area with Peter Max lighted dance floor and planetarium ceiling. There are two additional guest bedrooms each with private baths, and a separate open library and TV room. Across the portico from the main house is the guest house, home to Sean Connery when he would visit Dunedin. Of course, there is a full liquor bar, a gambling table, and a TV room. There are an additional bedroom and full bath on the first floor and another bedroom, full bath, and sitting room upstairs. If you are not overwhelmed yet, you will be. This is truly a unique, one of a kind, showcase of design and comfort. Let's not forget the bell tower, 4 fireplaces, and your own private docking area. With 295 ft on the intercoastal, this is undoubtedly the finest piece of property in Pinellas county.
