Property Description

AN UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY: OWN AND LIVE IN BABE RUTH’S HISTORIC FLORI DE LEON PENTHOUSE! During the 1920’s – 1930’s Babe Ruth lived in this apartment during New York Yankees’ Spring Training. Memorabilia carefully collected and preserved in the Flori’s Heritage Room show his telegrams reserving this apartment and photos with friends and family. When renovations were done behind the fireplace, his cigar butts were found! Friend and teammate, Lou Gehrig lived in another penthouse. Legend has it that Ruth traded his penthouse with Gehrig when Gehrig contracted Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) because it had an elevator. Standing on the terrace next to his apartment, Babe could see Miller Huggins Field at Crescent Lake where the Yankees practiced and view sunsets to the West. Looking East he had a million-dollar view of Tampa Bay including a prime spot to see fireworks on July 4 or New Years’ Eve. You will enter this 7th-floor penthouse by taking the central elevator or a side European-style elevator with stairway, cross through the Babe Ruth Lounge, and a rooftop terrace to the wrought-iron gated entry to a private walkway and balcony to the front door. Walk into the foyer to the large great room with its custom decorative fireplace and into the den/office and Florida Room with water and city views. With French Doors closed, this room can be a private lounge or extra space. The flooring is original oak hardwood or tile. Maintaining the original character of the apartment, updates include a gourmet kitchen, bathroom with tub and shower and a washer & dryer (one of only two in the building), and central heat & air (2014). Maintenance fees include ELECTRIC, GAS, WATER, SEWER, TRASH, PEST CONTROL, RESERVES, BUILDING INSURANCE AND MAINTENANCE OF BUILDING AND GROUNDS. Neighboring properties include new townhouses across the street priced at $950,000 and up along with several newer condominiums on 4th Avenue. Highly walkable, this property is only 2 blocks from Tampa Bay, its waterfront parks, upscale restaurants and pubs, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Dali, the new Museum of the Arts and Crafts Museum, Sundial theaters, restaurants and shops. Go to major league baseball games at Tropicana Dome on the downtown Trolley! Imagine how Babe entertained here! Oh, if only the walls could talk!! This is CASH ONLY, and 55+ Community. Take this opportunity to step back in time and make this penthouse apartment your home. Come by and see this view.
