Reminiscent of a bygone era, this sprawling Colonial estate welcomes you and your family home to a pleasing design that carefully blends traditional details with contemporary conveniences. Enviably situated within the South Tampa enclave of Virginia Park, the property boasts a rare 8,000 square foot lot within a top-rated school district and is just minutes to major thoroughfares, fine dining and upscale shopping. The family friendly community also features a private neighborhood park. Meticulously landscaped, the residence is surrounded by lush green lawns recognized by home improvement expert Bob Vila to be virtually maintenance-free and requiring less mowing, yet “looks like a fairway year-round”. The expansive front porch encourages residents and visitors alike to pause for a brief respite as the sounds of birds singing and the fragrance of magnolia blossoms fill the air. Inside the open 3,935 square foot plan are interior spaces punctuated with gleaming hardwood floors, dramatic wooden columns, distinctive crown molding and charming plantation shutters. Complementing the formal dining room is the family room which merges into the chef-inspired kitchen, well equipped with GE profile appliances—including a convection oven and 5-burner stovetop—granite countertops, travertine backsplash, under cabinet recessed lighting and an abundance of storage and work space. French doors open principal spaces outdoors allowing an easy flow for guests when entertaining. The screen-enclosed lanai features stone pavers and is joined by a self-cleaning swimming pool and an outdoor shower. Mature palm trees and bamboo plantings surround the backyard in privacy, creating an outdoor oasis for year-round relaxation. Accommodations are thoughtfully arranged upstairs and consist of four bedrooms plus a resort-style master suite with marble countertops, dual vanities, jetted bathtub, walk-in shower and his and her walk-in closets. Additionally, one bedroom is currently serving as an extensive media room and is outfitted with a wetbar. Completing the 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom plan are a large laundry room with a washer and dryer, a handsome office space, a massive 3-car garage plus extra gated parking suitable for an RV or boat. Particularly impressive is the array of advanced systems selected for this residence which include high impact surge protection throughout, two updated A/C units with UV lighting, as well as home security and irrigation. Artfully blending classic details with modern amenities, this offering is a refined reflection of formal elegance and inviting warmth.
