This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of Tarpon Springs historical gems originally built in 1926 as Tarpon's First Baptist Church. It has been resurrected by the owner into a Mediterranean mansion, with two luxurious fully furnished five-star homes within it, with each key bedroom having its own balcony. This property holds over 7,000 square feet of air-conditioned, modernized living areas and every smart home feature one could possibly desire.

The best views in all of Tarpon can be had from the Bell Tower!

Both downtown and the sponge docks have boutiques, breweries and gift shops in abundance, and are within a short walk. Two beaches are within a five-minute golf-cart drive, Spring Bayou and Craig Park are all within distance too.
