Unprecedented Opportunity: 42-Acre Estate Adjacent to Caladesi Island State Park Hits the Market for $37.5 Million

For the first time ever, an extraordinary 42-acre estate neighboring Caladesi Island State Park has been listed for sale at a staggering $37.5 million, presenting an unparalleled opportunity for discerning buyers.

Situated at 1198 Mandalay Point, this remarkable property boasts the distinction of being the sole residence in the Tampa Bay area to share a property line with Caladesi Island State Park. Originally constructed in 1987 by Edwin “Ed” Hunter and his wife Carolyn, former owners of the renowned Hiland Potato Chip company and the historic Clearwater Beach Hotel, the home epitomizes exclusivity and luxury.

The crown jewel of the Hunter estate lies in its breathtaking location. Nestled on the northernmost tip of Clearwater Beach, the 3,434-square-foot residence is perched 20 feet above sea level, offering unparalleled panoramic views of the surrounding waterfront. Boasting three bedrooms and four bathrooms, each strategically positioned to maximize water vistas, the home exudes opulence and sophistication.

A hallmark feature of the Hunter house is its expansive 42-acre parcel, providing unparalleled privacy and seclusion. The property features an atrium with soaring 20-foot ceilings, a heated lap pool, and exclusive dockage on Dunedin Pass. Notably, it boasts what is arguably the most secluded beachfront in all of Pinellas County, offering residents an unparalleled sanctuary amidst nature’s splendor.

Introduced to the market on February 26, this exceptional estate presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for affluent buyers seeking the pinnacle of coastal living. With an unprecedented asking price of $37.5 million, the Hunter home is poised to set a new benchmark for luxury real estate in Tampa Bay. Surpassing even the nearby Century Oaks estate in Clearwater, listed at $39,995,000, this property is primed to redefine the region’s luxury real estate landscape.

Should the Hunter estate command its asking price, it will secure its place in history as the most expensive residential property ever sold in Tampa Bay, surpassing the record set by Derek Jeter’s former Davis Islands residence, which sold for $22.5 million in 2022.
