This restored 1925 Rutland-Farley waterfront estate β€” with its baronial stairway and glorious waterfront views on Little Bayou β€” is one of the gems of St. Petersburg.

  • From the custom hand-carved moldings in the regal library to the braided leather panels set into woodwork, this home speaks to the craftsmanship of a bygone era.

Yes, but: It also has modern amenities, like an Olympic-sized swimming pool, a gym and a gourmet kitchen.

By the numbers: The 9,213-square-foot home has:

  • Seven bedrooms.
  • Eight bathrooms.
  • A pool terrace and an outdoor kitchen.
  • A pool house.
  • Six fireplaces.
  • Staff residences.
  • A bocce ball court.
  • A putting green.
  • A dock with a 50,000-pound lift.

What we like: Check out that vaulted brick ceiling in the informal dining room, and is that a treehouse beside the swimming pool?
