About 608 Columbus Drive

On one of the most desirable streets in the coveted Monte Cristo neighborhood on the island paradise of Tierra Verde, you'll discover in this genuinely magnificent estate-like home a rare example of luxury, quality, and superb design. Offering water views over the Pass-a-Grille channel and over 5100 square feet of interior living space, this home is a one-of-a-kind architectural masterpiece, designed and built by renowned Matta Architecture. Columbus Drive is a street of multi-million-dollar homes, and as you pull under the porte cochère and approach the grand entrance, you'll already feel at home. Upon entering, you're greeted by soaring ceilings and immense open and bright spaces, as the living room features two double-height walls of windows, a second-story decorative ledge, a majestic, marble-clad fireplace, and glass doors that open onto the back deck. The tremendous formal dining room could host the grandest of gatherings, and the kitchen and great-room combination provides for both excellent entertaining possibilities and perfect day-to-day living. With two giant islands, one of which offers bar seating, wood cabinetry, and an informal dining area surrounded by bay windows, this kitchen has the potential to be a center for world-class culinary and social happenings. The living room continues the bright and open feel of the home, with sliding glass doors that open on to the generous covered deck overlooking the tropical greenery of the back yard and out across the expansive blue water of the channel. On the main floor you'll find three large and luxurious bedroom suites, each with its own private en-suite bath, as well as an extra 1/2 bath for guests, tons of storage, and a large, bright laundry room. Ascending the stately, curving, oak staircase, you will be absolutely stunned by the extreme spaciousness and opulent design of the master suite. Encompassing the entire upper level of the home, it offers a grand office fit for a head-of-state, a palatial bedroom that's larger than most living rooms, and a bathroom so voluminous it must be seen to be believed. The shower itself is astoundingly large, and there's also a garden tub in an elegant, raised setting with bay windows overlooking the water. The bedroom boasts a large walk-in closet and sliding doors that offer water views and access to the substantial upper-level covered patio, the perfect place for morning coffee or evening sunsets. The home features a purpose-built elevator shaft reaching all levels. In addition to the 3000+ sqft of pavered drive, one of the most rare and desirable features of this home is its mammoth 3,424 sqft garage, with 8+ spaces. Bring your car collection or create the most capacious of workshops and still have room for all your island toys. The substantial lot, covering more than a 1/3 acre, and the enormous backyard offer the potential to create a dream configuration for outdoor enjoyment, with more than enough room for a huge pool, spa, patio, outdoor kitchen, and whatever else might perfect your vision of supreme island living. Tierra Verde’s Monte Cristo neighborhood is one of the most coveted areas in Tampa Bay. Boasting both unbelievable local amenities and incredible convenience to St. Petersburg, the freeway, and multiple international airports, Tierra Verde is a place unlike any other, featuring amazing local restaurants right on the island and super quick access to Isla de Sol Yacht and Country Club, Ft. DeSoto, and the Gulf Beaches.
