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