A stunning Davis Island property with a world-class view

Commanding an impressive 464 feet of coveted waterfront frontage, this property signifies a significant milestone as the most expansive water-facing expanse offered on Davis Island in decades. Spanning over three buildable lots, it houses a 9,038-square-foot home, designed and built in 1928. Notably, the property’s 1.45 acre lot surpasses Derek Jeter’s 345-foot waterfront property on Tampa Bay, which set a record with its $22 million sale in 2022.

The remarkable team at Smith & Associates Real Estate, comprised of Mary Beth Byrd, Leslie Minder, and Dina Sierra Smith, collectively represent the sellers and co-listed this extraordinary residence.

Reflecting on the legacy of 42 Ladoga, Mary Beth Byrd of Smith & Associates shared, “In Tampa’s prestigious waterfront properties, 42 Ladoga shines as a true gem. Its blend of historical significance, modern amenities, and unparalleled waterfront access creates an extraordinary opportunity for the discerning buyer.”
