World-renowned opera singer Maria Callas, was of Greek decent, and had family who lived here in the Tampa area, in Tarpon Springs. During the 1960s, Maria's fame and fortune led her to eventually develop a love interest and long relationship with the world's richest man at the time, billionaire shipping tycoon, Aristotle Onassis. Maria and Aristotle had a relationship that lasted for over 5 years. In 1964 though, when JFK was killed, Onassis left Maria, and he married Jackie Kennedy (Onassis). 

This sprawling Greek-inspired estate has a somewhat southern-type charm when you first pull onto the property and see the long driveway leading back through the large canopy of oak trees, past the tennis courts, to the breath-taking home. This lakefront 5-acre estate belongs to Maria's family, and is located in Odessa, FL just east of Tarpon Springs, where Maria spent time with her family as a child. Maria had a cousin by the name of Chris Callas. Chris is now the CEO of Apollo Industries in Georgia. Years ago, Chris married a lady by the name of Maria, and jokingly told her that he would make her famous :-) His new wife Maria, married into the family, and then also became Maria Callas. This home belongs to that Maria Callas, the wife of the famous opera singer's cousin. So to make it clear, the famous opera singer did not own this house. It belongs to her Greek family from here in Tarpon Springs.


It'll be sunny (we hope)! Temp 2204.
