Property description

SUTHERLAND MANOR is a tropical paradise, conveniently located on a quiet street in Old Palm Harbor, a charming coastal community of Clearwater, Florida. Waterfront views and sunsets sparkle from almost every room. Enjoying nearly 365 days of sunshine, this home is a FAMILY GETAWAY with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and a large bonus room. Large rooms with vaulted ceilings spill onto 2 decks that look over the tropical landscape, heated pool and out onto the bay. The home is NEWLY REMODELED, BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED and ALLERGY FRIENDLY with fresh paint and new tile throughout. This is our “second home” and we furnished it with the same attention to quality and detail that we appreciate for ourselves. We hope you do too!



WATER FUN!!
We provide kayaks for enjoying the bay, but be sure to wear water shoes to protect your feet from the sharp oyster beds! Boats are also available for rent locally. This is the best way to get to the more secluded beaches and the Gulf,

Sunset Cruises on the pontoon boat may be chartered with the property manager.

The fully equipped QUARTZ KITCHEN has everything you will need to prepare and serve meals. Choose between casual, bistro style dining or a formal dining room that opens up to seat 12 comfortably. A barbeque and comfortable patio furniture offer more dining choices on both levels.

The GREAT ROOM has comfortable furniture, a 50' HDTV with a BluRay DVD-CD player, digital cable package with over 200 channels.

The romantic MASTER RETREAT occupies the entire third floor and has its own private balcony overlooking the grounds and the bay beyond. Its plush, deep purple carpet feels great on tired feet! It has a king sized bed, a chaise lounge and club chairs with a 50” HDTV and BluRay DVD player. The large master bathroom enjoys two walk-in closets, a two person shower and a garden tub for relaxation.

The playfully decorated CHILDREN’S ROOM has two sets of bunk beds and its own flat screen TV with cable and DVD player.

The MANATEE ROOM (west bedroom) has a water views and sliding doors to the deck on the main level. It has a queen bed. The PARROT ROOM (east bedroom) looks over the grounds and has a king bed and a flat screen HDTV with BluRay DVD player.

Note: The beds and linens, throughout the house, are brand-new, top of the line and sooooooo comfortable! We want everyone to wake up thinking they just had the best sleep of their lives!

The huge BONUS ROOM is on the first level and has sliding glass doors that open to the pool. It has its own bathroom/shower, dining area with a “mini-kitchen” (microwave, sink and refrigerator) so people don’t have to go upstairs for popcorn or cold drinks, etc. The sofa opens up to a comfortable queen bed. There is an HDTV with satellite, BluRay and a Wii console with several childrens and sports games.

The Washer and Dryer are near the kitchen. Ironing boards, hair dryers, shampoo, beach towels and pool toys are provided.

A child protection safety fence for the swimming pool is available upon request.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: My wife and I live in Kalispell, Montana where I work as a physician. Our passions are for family and friends, flying, gardening, good wine and food, music and art. We rehabilitate eagles in our back yard.

Why Other Clearwater Beach Properties:
We have children and grandchildren nearby, so we bought and furnished this home with family in mind. We love this area for the sunshine, warm weather and its closeness to the water. The cultural and recreational opportunities are endless with something for everyone nearby. Big name sports and entertainment venues abound. Ten Major league Baseball teams hold spring training camps within minutes of the house. World class golf and tennis are available year around. Amazing deep-sea fishing, boating, shell hunting are easily accessible. Luxury cruise boats leave from nearby Tampa. Also, there are plenty of private airports and fantastic recreational flying destinations. There are miles of scenic bike/jogging trails at hand. Wonderful restaurants, theatres, grocery stores and shopping are just down the street.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy that, while we are close to all the fun and recreational activities, our vacation home is in a very nice, quiet, private neighborhood that lets us feel the tranquility and relaxation of truly being 'at home.' It's so relaxing to sit on the lanai, or be taking a swim in the pool, while watching a tropical sunset...with no crowds or hustle. Our home has a large backyard that is ideal for badminton, croquet or horseshoes. I like to sit on the porch swing and look down the long open greenbelt behind the house. We furnished the home for ourselves, with brand new, top of the line mattresses and linens. I love to cook and just bought a new infrared gas grill that takes barbeque to a new level. Colorful art by Warhol, Lichtenstein, Van Gogh and LeWitt lend fun and atmosphere.
