Century Oaks, one of Tampa Bay’s most insane properties, just sold for $9.3 million


An iconic home in Clearwater with a history of record sales, has once again sold for a historic price.

Century Oaks, a massive compound in Clearwater, was listed as high as $19,750,0000 over the least couple years, but recently sold on December 23 for $9.3 million, according to Multiple Listing Service data. The transaction was actually the biggest residential sale of 2020, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

The home had two listing agents, Jennifer Zales and Martha Thorn of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. The identity of the buyer is unknown.

Located at 802 Druid Rd. S, this 28,000-square-foot estate comes with a 16,000-square-foot main house and a 5,200-square-foot guest house, which have a combined 16 bedrooms and 20 bathrooms. It also includes two pools, two tennis courts, a grand ballroom, a movie theater, a historic bell tower, terraced gardens, a ten car garage, and a 60-foot covered boat dock.

Essentially, you're buying a personal resort.

Named after its giant trees, Century Oaks was built in 1915 on the same site as Fort Harrison, which was a strategic military post during the Second Seminole War. The property changed hands quite a few times over the years, but just three years ago it was purchased by a couple from Dubai, who bought the estate for a record $11.18 million.
