Olde World Charm Blends With New World Convenience in Sunset Park Estate


In the heart of south Tampa is the neighborhood of Sunset Park, with its numerous canals and water access to Old Tampa Bay. The central location allows easy access to the Westshore Business District, downtown Tampa, or even across the bridge to St. Petersburg. Many of the street names throughout Sunset Park and adjacent Sunset Park Isles, are named for classic poets,  including Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Edgar Allen Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorn, Charles Lamb and others. There is a mix of architecture styles in the area consisting of Colonial, Florida Ranch, Contemporary and Mediterranean.

Built in 2007, the Spanish-style home blends into the prestigious Tampa neighborhood. The two-story, four-bedroom and four and a half bath home is spacious with nearly 4,600 square feet. Set on a corner lot, the home looks stunning from the street with its outdoor lighting and lush landscaping. A brick sidewalk leads to the front entry with glass and a wrought iron door.

Inside, the foyer is a 350-bottle wine cellar built underneath the stairwell. The stone flooring creates an Old World flair. The heart of any home is the kitchen and this home has a large white marble-topped island, that is large enough for family to gather. The designer stainless steel grade appliances feature a gas cooktop, double oven and over-sized refrigerator. There is also a built-in desk, hidden walk-in pantry and custom cabinetry with plenty of storage.

Downstairs offers a two-story high living room and there is a formal dining room, ideal for entertaining. There is also a home office that has custom built-ins to keep things organized and showcase a library collection; as well as a spacious guest suite with access to the swimming pool. The French doors in the family room allow natural light to flood the room and access to the covered outdoor space.

The beautiful staircase leads to the upstairs where the master suite comes complete with a sitting area, built-ins and spa-like master bath. The additional two bedrooms each have their own bathroom and abundant closet space. For convenience, the laundry room is upstairs too. The bonus room/media room comes complete with surround sound. One of the upstairs bathrooms is custom painted above a gilded chair rail and built-in sink into a vanity.

The outside comforts of the home include a heated, salt water pool and spa with surrounding covered patio areas that are ideal for an escape, without ever having to leave the house. Invite friends over and grill-out on the outdoor kitchen that comes with a gas grill and a lattice cover patio space. All the space for a growing family are found inside this Sunset Park Mediterranean home.     M
