It is no secret that Florida is a wonderful state in which to live. Humankind enjoys the water and there is plenty of it. One of the latest sales of Tampa waterfront houses brought New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski to Tampa in late November 2012.
Called the ‘Casa de Fiesta', the home is set up for any sports fan with ten flat screen TVs included. There is never a reason to miss a moment of on-screen action, regardless of the action. Brothers Chris and Dan are also active in the NFL, so chances are good that many of those games will focus on football.
What other features can be found in contemporary Tampa real estate located by the water? This particular home was built in 2007 and provides 4700 square feet of comfortable living. In keeping with the theme of water, there are fish tanks (custom built, of course). Now and then the evening gets a bit chilly, making the remote-controlled fire pits a great way to take the bite out of the air.
Athletes have to keep in shape and many prefer to do that in the comfort of their home. A common feature in Tampa for many homes is a pool., or in this case, two pools. A fully equipped gym keeps those muscles in tone, while the spa helps ease any soreness resulting from the type of workout demanded of a top NFL player.
This Westshore Yacht Club home is designed for entertaining. Included with the home is a bar and small restaurant. The furnished house also includes a first-class security system.
Just like others searching for the right home, Gronkowski looked in several areas, including Miami. This location by Old Tampa Bay delivered what he wanted. It is a short walk to the dock, where the 26-foot boat that was part of the sale rests when not in use.
