Luxury 6 bedroom home is newly-built, well-maintained, immaculately clean and timeless-looking. Set in a beautiful quiet neighborhood with large lots, huge trees and 10 minutes from the beach in Clearwater. This luxury villa, is close to many of the top 10 beaches in the world: Cleawater Beach, Sand Key, Caladisi Island, Honeymoon Island and also Tarpon Spings. Also less than two hours are Florida's top attractions like Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios and Cirque du Soleil, based in Kissimmee, south of Orlando. Jungle Home is a beautiful villa where you will be able to holiday in luxury near the waterfront. The largest room which is a combined living/dining room and kitchen overlooks the well-landscaped jungle outside, as well as the pool. Fabulous gourmet kitchen. Hidden speakers spread music throughout the house and pool area. The home is designed for parties on the ground floor while the children sleep upstairs. Much appreciated by British guests (designer/owner also English).
I grew up in London and have lived in California, Florida, France and am now back in the UK where I run my marketing company. I have two boys and we come back to this house for as much as possible.
After looking for two years for a beautiful home in Clearwater, I gave up and learned how to design and get a home built. It was a fascinating process and enormously creative! Probably the biggest problem was in having so many choices. I'd only renovated before and there is so much you can't do when the property is already built!
I chose to build in a lovely safe area filled with trees, families and windy roads. We later put a screen around the pool because one day we had a black snake in the pool and the mosquitoes were just too annoying!
By building ceilings high and many traditional elements into the home, we were able to create a warm European atmosphere.
We are most fond of the large living/dining/kitchen area that overlooks the pool. This is where everyone hangs out!
We love the natural and artificial lighting that streams to the home from at least two sides of all the main rooms, the artwork painted onto the bathroom walls, as well as the secret tunnel from the children's room!
