This magnificent historic Davis Islands estate was one of the first homes built on the island in 1926, and is beautifully situated on a LARGE 3 lot waterfront parcel just under 1 acre (.78 AC) on one of the widest canals with bay views. The parcel is approximately 160 ft of water frontage with dock, approximately 210 ft at the street, and located just minutes from dock to open bay. Designed by Franklin O. Adams, Jr, and built to resemble a large Spanish farmhouse, this is one several stunning Mediterranean Revival designs built on the Island at the time. The beautiful grounds feature brick walkways, meandering paths, all set under a beautiful tree canopy with extensive privacy. The exterior entry consists of a shallow pavilion, with a recessed wood door with a molded cornice and pineapple finials. Upon entry to the main home, you are greeted with original wood floors, stunning millwork, wood beams, and a classic design. The first floor features a living room, library, formal dining room, study, powder bath, kitchen and inside laundry room. The second-floor features 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. A two story, 2 car garage is attached at the west side of the home through a connecting enclosed laundry room.

There is ample opportunity to expand the square footage of the main home and update this beautiful tribute to Island history.
