That futuristic house in South Tampa that looks like a moon base is now for sale


A well-known home visible from MacDill Avenue that some would argue either looks like a moon base, or maybe some sort of futuristic mega-yacht, or perhaps a winter retreat for Zordon, is now on the market.

Built for himself in 1964 by renowned architect Demetrios Athan, who also designed Tampa's since-demolished First National Bank, this midcentury modern gem has become an iconic fixture of South Tampa. Located at 3101 W. Parkland Blvd., the 4,097 -square-foot estate features a massive enclosed courtyard with a two-story main house and a separate one-story casita, totaling out at five bedrooms and four bathrooms. The home also boasts a custom concrete Stu Lang pool, an oversized two-car garage with hurricane garage doors, reverse osmosis water filter and softening systems, and a plumbed Keurig coffee station.

The home is currently listed for $1,400,000, and was last sold in 2014 for $735,000.

The listing agent is Karla Dorsey of Keller Williams Realty South Tampa.
