Hyde Park Splendor
In the heart of Hyde Park is a spectacular three story home reminiscent of 19th century Italianate architecture built in 1882. Known as the Morrison house, the home has undergone major renovations by Soleil Design. The four bedroom, three and one half bath home sits on nearly a half-acre in the heart of Tampa. The 6,365 square-foot property also includes a separate 813 square-foot guest house with wood floors, french doors, kitchenette and separate bath that is ideal for the in-laws or weekend guests.
Entry into the home allows a front to back foyer and staircase to the second floor. Downstairs, the ceilings are twelve feet high and the oversized windows allow for plenty of natural light to fill the rooms. There are separate formal living and dining rooms on the first floor, along with a library and office. Throughout the home, six wood burning fireplaces create ambiance and provide a source of heat.
Chefs of every skill level will delight in the custom kitchen featuring a Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, wine cooler and custom cabinetry. The center island has a marble top and copper sink, to assist with kitchen prep.
The master suite is on the second floor and comes with custom vanities, inlaid herringbone floors, marble countertops and a soaking tub. The closet has custom built-ins for easy organization of clothes. The third floor has the exercise room and a tucked away media room. The back staircase leads to the tower room with views of the Bay, downtown Tampa and Bayshore Blvd.
The air-conditioned three car garage provides ample space for storage and parking space for automobiles. Outside, the well-manicured lawn and professionally-designed gardens provide for plenty of relaxation. Feel like you have escaped to a private resort with a heated, newly remarcited pool and spa. The patio includes a fire pit and complete outdoor kitchen that allows for easy entertaining. M
