Preserving a legacy

A Tampa-area remodel keeps the past alive

The kitchen features two-toned cabinetry in rich stained wood and creamy ivory, topped with light granite counters.

Sunny yellow walls and bold modern art adorn the main hall leading down the center of the home.

A pair of arched windows flanks the gas fireplace in this cozy room dubbed the “man cave.”

Native Florida plants including royal palms, sabal palms, areca palms, xanadu palms, avenida, ligustrom, podocarpus and bromeliads adorn the private back yard.

The Bösendorfer concert piano commands attention in the grand living room, which is also home to an eye-catching fireplace.

The front entry door features iron grillwork, a common element typical of the home’s time period, which establishes the overall tone of the house.

Painted wood molding and an elegantly carved fireplace add drama to the relaxing master bedroom.

Rich mahogany paneled walls and a dramatic chandelier dripping with glass crystals establish the formal atmosphere in the dining room.

The 4,300 square-foot neoclassical house was built in the 1920s and features a soffit that replicates the architectural detailing found on the original Maas Brothers department stores.
