Stately, majestic West Indies-style Taralon home stands out as custom built, w/extra design flourishes shown in every carefully crafted detail, from front-balcony railings to curved archway at front entry. Graphic trim elements setting off windows plus brick pavers on driveway add to an image of palm-treed opulence. Step inside to find everything light and bright an immense, open expanse of space greets you, and only after taking it in do you notice the shiplap accent walls plus clever way the railing detail repeats in the interior, setting off risers and the second-floor balcony. Drink in the exposed pine beams in dining room that stretch dramatically over kitchen (and are repeated in master bedroom) complementing the notable, naturally aged maple expresso wood floors. The sunken grand living room ceiling soars to 26, with 10 ceilings elsewhere. Ventless see-through gas fireplace w/stone accents adds to posh dcor. Kitchen features Wolf gas stove and convection microwave, Sub-Zero fridge, Bosch dishwasher. Enjoy bonus 170 sq ft of cooled attic space, and speaking of AC, its dual with electronic air filtration system controlled by your smartphone. Home is LEED certified (w/energy efficient windows and more) and comes w/10-year structural warranty. Preplumbing and electric in place for pool and outdoor casita. Downstairs has full bed/bath/office. And what a location! South Tampa in the Plant High district, steps from Bayshore Blvd. Easy commute to St. Pete or the Xpressway to emerging Downtown Tampa.
