The beachfront home of citrus tycoon Dr. Phillips’ son is still on the market in Florida | Orlando


A beachfront home that once belonged to the son of Florida orange grove owner and renowned philanthropist Dr. Phillips is on the market in Florida.

Located at 2737 S. Atlantic Ave., in Daytona Beach Shores, the home was built in 1947 and housed the son of Philip Phillips, whose name now lives on through both Orlando’s Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and the unincorporated Orange County area known as Dr. Phillips.

Dr. Phillips was known for his influential work in the Florida citrus industry. In 1954, he sold his citrus holdings to Granada Groves and Minute Maid in what is largely believed to be the largest transaction in the history of citrus.

When he died in 1959, Phillips’ business was passed down to his son Howard.

The historic Art Deco-style home sits on 175 feet of Daytona beachfront and comes with four bedrooms and four baths, totaling 1,359 square feet.

The house is listed for $2,920,000 and the listing agent is Carla Stanton with Mainframe Real Estate.
