TASTEFULLY APPOINTED and featuring a facade reminiscent of a French countryside manor, this two-story home combines European flair, quality craftsmanship and exquisite style that makes this South Tampa residence both distinctive and desirable. Contributing to its characteristic Old-World charm are custom shutters framing the front entrance and windows, a copper barrel roof dormer, decorative iron balcony and double entry doors. Four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half baths contribute to the luxuriously spacious interior that includes a large fireplace with ornate mantle, climate-controlled wine closet and extraordinary floor-to-ceiling features such as ingrained designs along the foyer floor, wainscoting in formal areas and tray ceilings in select rooms. The semi-circular, custom paver covered, security-gated driveway is highlighted by landscaping that includes tropical palms, mature trees and colorful shrubbery. The well-groomed front and back yards create a picturesque garden setting ideal for entertaining or relishing privacy while relaxing in the spa. Gleaming hardwood floors grace the first-floor family room, formal and casual dining rooms, eat-in breakfast bar overlooking the open kitchen, study and hallway. Decorative light fixtures affixed to ceiling medallions accent some rooms while recessed lighting contributes warmth and brightness to others. The chef’s kitchen boasts customized cherry cabinets, a Tuscan-inspired hood cover above the gas range, decorative tile backsplash, stone flooring and gorgeous granite countertops plus a freestanding island. French doors connect the family room to the covered patio and stainless-steel outdoor kitchen that overlook the spa and offer proximity to an outdoor half-bath and detached two-car garage. The upstairs encompasses ensuite bedrooms and laundry room. Double doors open to the primary bedroom that includes his & her walk-in closets and spacious bathroom complete with clawfoot tub, double vanity with Corian countertops and stand-alone glass shower stall.
