Old Hyde Park Home Tour

Do you love the character and Old World feel of a historic home?  If so, make plans to attend the Old Hyde Park Home Tour that will be held Sunday, December 4th from 1:00 – 4:00 pm.  This annual event is sponsored by Hyde Park Preservation Inc. and showcases beautiful historic homes.  This year the tour begins outside St. John’s Episcopal Church.

As a Tampa custom home builder, we are often asked how to invoke charm into a new home.  This tour provides lots of inspiration on many of the points we are frequently asked about. It can be tough to visualize including porches into your living area, but you’ll see several examples of this on the tour. You will also get ideas about detailed wood trim molding, and creative uses of tile that can stand the test of time.  As a designer with a custom home builder in South Tampa, I appreciate the charm of old homes, however I am far more enamored with closet space, modern technology and a builder warranty.

Fortunately, newer homes warm right up when they're decorated with interesting older pieces of furniture with a story.  I think that there's a lot to be said for mixing cool old pieces with brand spanking new construction. You start with a clean slate and end up with the best of both worlds.
