Buy it on Palma Ceia Golf Course

This rather large Mediterranean-styled home is located on the fairway at Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club. And, it's for sale. I don't even want to guess at the price, but I'm sure it's in the stratosphere. If you're golfer, and have a golf membership at the club - and deep pockets in the middle of this recession - then this could be your absolute dream home. If you answered no to each of these questions, then be content to peek from the drive on a beautiful Tampa afternoon.

  1. It is truly a delicious mansion! Not what I would want but then I've never had enough money to worry about buying something like that. Can you imagine what the taxes are? And the upkeep. Yikes!

    This is a very beautiful photograph, Frank! So well composed and the colors are outstanding!

  6. I'll wager it is a lot less than it was 2-3 years ago.

  7. It's a gorgeous house, but I'd have to be REALLY RICH to live there.

    Super capture.

  8. @ Jacob / @ Hilda / @ Mary Stebbins Taitt - I did a search and found the real estate listing: For $4.5 million US you get a "Fun filled gated Estate on Palma Ceia Golf Course! 36,025 sq. ft. (lot dimensions 131 x 275) This home is 6,904 sq. ft. of living space, 4 or 5 bedrooms, a perfect home for entertaining with a 2-story living & dining room, family room, media room, state of the art kitchen, with granite and wood cabinets, a paneled library, and large veranda with pool overlooking the golf course. The home is fun filled for the young at hearts with an under the sea Finding Nemo bedroom, Teenage Ninja Turtle & Power Rangers playroom, and an outdoor, air conditioned, playhouse decorated in 3 dimensional King Kong & dragons.

    Estimated tax - $81,000 - 95,000 per year.

  9. Thanks for the peek in the driveway. That's all I can do too. Especially with taxes like that. Yikes. Taxes in Hillsborough County should go down next year since Bill and Melinda Gates came thru with the big bucks for the schools.
