Bayshore Blvd

Historical Charm.
Architectural Excellence.

Welcome to Bayshore, where historic charm meets architectural excellence. If you’re looking to build your dream home, we have an extraordinary project to captivate your imagination. Our team embarked on a beautiful restoration project that seamlessly blended period-specific materials, architectural consistency, and meticulous attention to detail. This ARC (Architectural Review Commission) endeavor was not only complex but also a high-profile undertaking on a prominent and highly public boulevard.



Precise Preservation

The Bayshore restoration project demanded a tight architectural process, requiring us to be extremely wise in its development. Detailed plans and pre-construction strategies were meticulously crafted and presented before the ARC. Every aspect of the project was heavily articulated, with explicit details on materials and plans. Our commitment to historical accuracy and preservation meant that everything was thoroughly written out and detailed, ensuring the final result would pay homage to the heritage of the area.


Elevating Heritage

One of the standout features of the Bayshore project was the addition of a two-story extension to the existing house. This structural engineering marvel was a testament to the skill and craftsmanship of our team. Building a second story on a highly visible and historic home came with its own set of challenges. We had to carefully navigate the complexities of working with a preexisting structure, completely redoing the foundation system to accommodate the new addition. Countless foundation alterations were undertaken, all executed with precision and expertise.


Timeless Elegance

A true testament to our dedication to both functionality and aesthetics, the Bayshore project boasts a breathtaking second-story bathroom. The attention to detail is evident in the intricate fixtures, custom molding, and a stunning tub that invites you to unwind and soak in the luxurious ambiance. Throughout the house, you’ll find new custom molding and a hardwood staircase leading upstairs, enhancing the overall grandeur and timeless elegance of the space.

“Our dedication to excellence and attention to detail in this high-profile restoration has resulted in a masterpiece that not only honors the past but also sets a new standard for luxury and craftsmanship.”

Stunning Exterior

Beyond the interior, the Bayshore project shines with its heavy focus on outside detailed molding, trim, and lighting. These exterior elements not only enhance the architectural beauty but also accentuate the home’s historic character. Every aspect of the project was carefully considered to ensure a harmonious blend of the old and the new.


Historic Collaboration

To bring this ambitious restoration project to life, we collaborated closely with the Architectural Review Commission (ARC). The ARC plays a vital role in preserving the architectural heritage of Tampa Bay. They review and approve proposed alterations and new constructions in historically significant areas, ensuring that each project meets strict guidelines. Working hand in hand with the ARC, we navigated the architectural processes with precision and respect for the historic significance of the area.
