Bayshore Model Grand Opening

Meet the Bayshore 1688

Town and Country Living in South Tampa

On March 2, 2022, over 100 real estate agents swooned over the new two-story AR Homes® Bayshore model, and for a good reason. It’s an exceptionally well-designed home in a desirable location that would feel just as home on a sprawling ranch as it does in the heart of trendy South Tampa.

The Bayshore is over 2,900 square feet of living space, with four bedrooms, four baths, and a two-car garage. Although built with the amenities common to AR Homes®’ Signature finish level, it also contains elements of the Platinum finish level, such as impact-rated windows. The home is a tasteful blend of modern farmhouse design in a stylish urban setting.

The exterior is a playful mix of metal roofing, slatted dormer accents, stucco on the front, and Hardie® board siding on the upper levels and backside of the home for a contemporary take on a multi-level farmhouse. The driveway, entry porch, and pool deck all feature brick pavers.

Options Abound

The primary suite and three additional bedrooms are located on the second floor, leaving the first floor open and perfect for entertaining. Volume, ten-foot, recessed ceilings grace the great room, kitchen, and den. Decorative beams in the den further add to the contemporary farmhouse feel.

The kitchen is very well appointed, with GE™ Profile™ appliances, quartz countertops, and hardwood floors that lead into the great room and up the grand staircase. There is also a dry bar with quartz counters in the great room and a spacious island kitchen, sink, and seating area. The most surprising feature of the kitchen is the hidden pantry. What looks like part of the cabinetry reveals a large pantry when opened. When closed, it blends back into the kitchen seamlessly.

The owner’s bath features stunning quartz countertops, a roomy walk-in shower with a rain shower head, unique tile accents, a stylish free-standing tub, and a large walk-in closet.

The utility room is thoughtfully located on the second floor, where the bedrooms are, making it easier to keep up with laundry without traversing the stairs with every load. The second bedroom is an on-suite, with its own bath, while bedrooms three and four share a Jack and Jill bath. The on-suite and Jack and Jill baths feature granite counters.

It’s the ideal setting for a growing family or a couple who likes to entertain at home in style. The den is in addition to the four bedrooms, making the Bayshore a perfect remote work location as well.

An Inviting Pool Deck

The lanai off the expansive great room opens onto an optional rectangular pool with a sun shelf, deep end seating bench, and even a fire trough to brighten any evening spent poolside. Want an outdoor kitchen? That option also exists and is already planned for and can tuck easily into the side of the lanai.
