The Cornerstone Of Luxury And Privacy
By Ronda M. Parag
This exquisite mansion is truly the only one of its kind in Florida. It was designed and built by European Artesian craftsmen who came to Tampa to construct this incredibly beautiful home. The major block structure is finished with all marble covering on the outside. The current owners have transformed the interior with a contemporary look and feel while keeping the original integrity of the home.
The grand entry is adorned with marble flooring and an impressive two-story wedding staircase, also constructed out of marble. Apart from the grand entry, the home is built with wide marble hallways that leads you to oversized family room, state of the art chef’s kitchen and dining room which overlooks the almost six acres manicured grounds.
The ball room with musician’s stage now has been converted to a formal room for more contemporary dinner parties, while keeping the intricate carved ceilings. It is important to note that the original wood floor, wood paneling and moldings are still in place for anyone who desires to restore the original ballroom details.
The spacious bedrooms on the second floor all offer ensuite bathrooms for the utmost privacy. The master suite is complete with its own living room, fireplace and spa-like master bathroom.
Across the home is an expansive attendant’s quarters situated over the garage. The pool, pavilion, and the basketball court are in their own setting, but compliment the overall recreational space that is offered.
While this home offers expansive rooms and soaring ceilings from 12 to 22 feet; it is complemented by warm homelike intimacy. The home’s interior transmits a light and airy ambiance throughout. This property has been truly tailored to both elaborate entertaining and ultimate privacy with its gated entry and exit gates – all situated within the Avila Golf and Country Club’s private community.
