A sprawling St. Petersburg mansion owned by Steven and Julie Weintraub, owners of the Gold & Diamond Source jewelry store in Clearwater, recently sold for $2.2 million.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, the home sold on Sept. 21 for $500,000 below the original asking price.
Known for their over-the-top TV commercials, the Weintraubs apparently got into some controversy recently for some over-the-top comments made on Facebook, which referred to protesters as terrorists. But, apparently the family also has over-the-top taste in homes.
Located at 6216 Bahama Shores Dr. S. the 6,018-square-foot Mediterranean-style estate sits on a waterfront lot with 160-feet of shoreline along Tampa Bay. Built in 1949, the four-bedroom, five-bathroom home has witnessed quite a few upgrades over the years. It features multiple koi ponds, two saltwater fish tanks, a resort-style saltwater pool and heated spa, an outdoor kitchen, a 200-foot dock with water and electric, and a roof top terrace with panoramic views of the Bay. Other amenities include Tennessee marble floors, a wine closet, and an indoor/outdoor living family room with three massive flatscreens and a pool table.
The listing agent was Terry Tillung of Coldwell Banker Residential.
