Property Description

RARELY AVAILABLE opportunity to build a RIVERFRONT home on secluded “Old Florida” property on the Hillsborough River that includes a bonus of a Cottage (1925.) Please see the Photos of the former River home and a Survey in Attachments. The home NO LONGER EXISTS but had boat parking under the house and at a dock. The piers and basement of the house remain. The EPC has approved decking across the area and the addition of 2 docks. As the original 4 BR home of 2,200+ sq ft was built OVER the river, it is difficult to determine many land measurements! The possibilities appear to be many for these 2 lots (1 buildable) that are separated by a bubbly fresh water stream running through the property that empties into the Hillsborough River. The Developer of this area of Old Seminole Heights, James P. Hamilton, was a brilliant man. He and his wife studied in Europe where he learned 3 languages. They came to Tampa in 1914. He bought 10 acres of land, developed Hamilton Heath w/ 30 homes outside city limits until the 1920’s. Newspaper called it “exclusive residential area.” During this time, Mr. Hamilton, who was blind since a childhood accident at age 3, accepted an invitation by Queen Olga of Greece to begin a School for the Blind in Athens. This street was named for 1 of Mr. Hamilton’s sons, Heath. NOW an original River property is available for a new home or recreation. The Cottage remains with water, electric, + natural gas and amazing views from the riverside porch, + an inviting front porch. As the Cottage needs repair, it is not warranted. If you know “Old Florida“ trees, vegetation, and ambiance, you can imagine the possibilities for this very unique property. Immerse yourself on the river with gorgeous views of nature, and you won’t want to leave; it is a haven for kayaks and boating. This property is just 15 minutes by boat and 1 bridge to all that the newly developed downtown Tampa Riverfront offers. This truly is an amazing opportunity to build your dream with incredible secluded views of Old Florida. There is nothing like this seclusion and privacy on the river amid such natural beauty. Please call for your private walking tour of this property.
