ST. PETERSBURG — Steve and Julie Weintraub, the owners of Gold & Diamond Source in Clearwater, sold their waterfront St. Petersburg home late last month for $2.2 million.
The sale closed on Sept. 21.
The sale price was $500,000 less than it was originally listed with Coldwell Banker in May. But listing agent Terry Tillung, of Tillung Tampa Bay, who is affiliated with Coldwell Banker’s Clearwater Beach office, said the couple was satisfied with the amount.
“That’s what the buyer was willing to spend,” Tillung said.
The Weintraubs are known throughout Tampa Bay for their prevalent television and radio ads promoting their jewelry store.
According to the deed recorded with Pinellas County, the buyer was a married man named Paul Scott Cattran. Tillung said he is not local to Tampa Bay and is from Ohio.
The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath home at 6216 Bahama Shores Drive S was built in 1949 and has about 6,000 interior square feet on a .82-acre lot. It’s located near the southern tip of St. Petersburg, below Coquina Key, and has views of the the downtown Tampa skyline and its own dock.
It also has multiple outdoor koi ponds as well as two large fishtanks in the foyer, a pool, a greenhouse, heated spa and a rooftop terrace.
Steve Weintraub previously said in a statement that the home “will always be near and dear to us, as it is where we have raised our family during the past 30 years."
Tillung said despite the sale, the Weintraubs will be staying in the Tampa Bay area.
