Magnificent 1934 brick estate, the crown jewel of Riverside Heights is now offered for sale; welcome to the 'Residence on Braddock'. RICH in Tampa history, the original owner immigrated here from Palermo, Sicily and built this home to show his wealth and power in the community. No expense was spared as this home rose out of the ground, brick by brick, with the most skilled Italian craftsmen to do the job right. From the hand laid mosaic tiles on the massive front porch with coffered ceilings to the original beveled and leaded glass entryway, the display of success can be found in every detail of this home. Definitively, it is a grand home, built to impress with its high ceilings adorned with hand crafted plaster friezes showing off motifs of the lion and the dove. The original wood floors with walnut inlay positively shine with a fresh refinishing. This home was built for entertaining with its HUGE completely remodeled kitchen featuring a commercial WOLF gas range. At your first dinner party your guests take their seats in the large formal dining room, easily accommodating a table for 10, while the scent of lamb shanks braised with rosemary and red wine fills the air. After dinner, you spin the classic sounds of Ol' Blue Eyes while sparkling laughter and private conversations unfold throughout these stately rooms from the library to the spacious family room. The best is yet to come, and oh babe won't it be fine. 2008 renovations include new plumbing, new electric, new a/c, new barrel tile roof. Exquisite.
