The historic Dunedin home of famed sailboat designer John G. Hanna is for sale

A designated historic landmark once owned by a sailboat legend is now on the market in Dunedin.

Located at 636 Wilkie St. S, the bungalow was built in 1916 and is the former home of acclaimed writer and sail boat designer John G. Hanna, who was is probably best known for designing the Tahiti ketch. Hanna was also an accomplished writer and columnist for Rudder, but was fired after a slew of ongoing feuds with other ship designer columnists.

After multiple published books and his boats circumnavigating the planet, Hanna died in 1948. But his extremely cool house still stands, and it is currently asking $1,250,000.

The estate comes with a total of four bedrooms, and four bathrooms, and features a working wood fireplace, a clawfoot bathtub, a pool and spa, and a 600-square-foot guest house over a two-car garage.

The listing agent is Gwen Campbell of Keller Williams Realty.
