Architect John Howey FAIA: Contemporary Architecture in Tampa, SoHo / Hyde Park
SOLD: CONTACT Martie Lieberman 941.724.1118
Nestled into downtown Tampa's SoHo, Hyde Park and Bayshore Boulevard neighborhoods is a contemporary architectural gem called Bay Villa Townhomes. Winner of the AIA Tampa Bay Award in 1978, Bay Villa was designed by John Howey, FAIA, architect and author of The Sarasota School of Architecture. This unique end-unit townhome was built specially for the architect's family, and remains intact. You will love the 10-to-14 foot vaulted ceilings, 10-foot sliding walls of glass, custom built-ins, clerestory windows and a loft, perfect for an artist, architect or your home office. Fine Brazilian walnut floors in the living, dining kitchen and entrance areas. There are two-and-a-half baths and two to four bedrooms, depending on how you use this flexible floor plan. The attached one-car garage is over-sized and includes room for laundry and storage or workshop, and there is a space for one more car onsite.
The location is great! Walk two blocks to Bayshore Blvd, a 4.5-mile scenic walkway along the bay with downtown Tampa views and you will see runners, bicyclists and many happy people. Or walk a few blocks to Hyde Park and SoHo, and enjoy numerous fine restaurants, cafes and boutiques. You'll love this neighborhood!
