Project Style: Modern Farmhouse
Size: 5 bedrooms; 5 full bathrooms + 1 half-bath; 6,200 sq. ft.
Home Story: As longtime residents of South Tampa, these homeowners saw many of Sunset’s projects evolve from foundation through to the stunning finished product – two in particular, on their very same street. Continually impressed, when the homeowner’s family construct shifted to need a new, multi-generational living arrangement, they turned to Sunset.
This 2-story home features a complete primary suite downstairs for the homeowners’ parent, as well as a full primary suite upstairs for their own use. An additional 3 bedrooms, with en suites, plus multiple study and gathering areas, will serve this growing family quite well.
Challenges & Points of Interest: The beautiful oak trees on the property received special design attention as one side of the home was tiered to preserve the canopy, and the home’s whole footprint was adjusted to accommodate the rest.
Code for waterfront living dictates the first floor start at a 12′ level which presents unique design challenges for the elevations. Carefully considered structures and landscaping ease the transitions.
