Lots of cash, little cachet from buyers of Gary Sheffield's party mansion

ST. PETERSBURG — Former baseball star Gary Sheffield's massive party mansion may be locally famous, but its new owners aren't.

The buyers of the Pinellas Point home, a prominent backdrop for Spring Breakers' bloody film shootout, are Steven Pereira and Shawn Mongan, property records show.

Neither buyer, who paid $2.6 million for the three-story mansion, responded to messages this month.

Sheffield built the 10,000-square-foot bachelor pad in 1997 with three bars, seven bedrooms and 14 air conditioners. He sold it five years later to infomercial magnate Kevin Harrington.

Pereira and Mongan paid for the mansion in cash before an auction last month, said Dr. Joseph Sena, a retired Belleair Beach surgeon who bought the home in December.

As to what the new buyers wanted out of the mansion's movie theater, gym, bathhouse or black-marble bedstead, Sena said he couldn't guess because he didn't know much about them.

"They're nobody special," he said.
