The location is the lifestyle: behind gates, with privacy on all sides, a quick bike ride to the quaint restaurants and art galleries of Dunedin and a sensible commute to Clearwater, St Pete, Tampa or the North County. In a whirlwind world of fast paced everything, wind down and relax in a seemingly different time, and in a very different place. This is your moment to live in the lap of Historical Luxury or build a Land of Luxury all of your own!
