(WFLA) Tampa's Davis Islands boasts some of the nicest homes in the city. Many homes are valued well over $1 million. It's a place where Derek Jeter built a home larger than some hotels.
At one time the home at 545 Severn Ave. was among the showplace addresses.
Bill Newman has lived on Davis Islands his entire life. Newman says the home on Severn Avenue was once listed by Playboy Magazine as one of the top bachelor pads in the nation.
Newman can remember an indoor pool and a tennis court outback.
Newman says, "When I first saw it built, it was spectacular."
