Former Rowdies owner is selling his St. Pete guesthouse for $6.2 million


Bill Edwards, former Tampa Bay Rowdies owner and current owner of the Sundial entertainment complex in downtown St. Petersburg, is selling his guesthouse for $6.2 million. Edwards apparently no longer uses the Snell Isle home, and says the sale has nothing to do with his ongoing lawsuit for allegedly defrauding veterans to the tune of $180 million, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

"I don't use it,'' said Edwards to the paper. "I thought it'd be a guest house but I don't have enough guests in there to make sense. I thought it was good investment and I still believe it is.''

The home, which is currently the most expensive piece of property on the market in that particular neighborhood, comes with five bedrooms and bathrooms, a large salt water pool, a private dock, a gym, a guest casita, an "Ale Bar'' in the dining room, and a beauty salon.

The listing agents are Bonnie Strickland and Jim DiMartino of Douglas Elliman/Strickland Group.
