1570 Alexander Road, Belleair, FL 33756
For sale, the Victorian mansion named Shady Oaks is one of the oldest yet best-preserved examples of Victorian architecture in Florida and is still standing in pristine condition as it has for over a century. The historical marvel is steeped in history dating back to one of its owners, Morton Plant, son of the renowned Henry B. Plant, railroad magnate, and developer of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel. Perhaps the most enduring part of Plant’s legacy can be found in Clearwater, Florida. Plant is responsible for the creation of the Morton Plant Hospital, designated as one of Reuters’ Top 100 Hospitals in the United States.
Located at 1570 Alexander Road, Belleair, FL 33756, the 4 bedroom home is listed at $649,900. Its current owner was careful to preserve its elegant historical features while modernizing the home to meet today’s needs. Situated on a double lot, Shady Oaks has gorgeous moldings, millwork, stained glass windows, and other unique features that true Victorian homes posses.
“Shady Oaks is one of the original homes on Bellair Beach and has been preserved and modernized with the utmost attention to detail and care. With over 3,776 square feet of space and a large lot, this Belleair home is a rare gem that holds a story of Florida’s history and growth,” says the listing agent for the home, Tricia Smedley, Smith & Associates Real Estate.
With its close proximity to Clearwater’s white-sand beaches and within steps of the well known Belleair Country Club, this home’s prime location and history make it an impressive new listing.
