1928 Spanish Eclectic
Hampton Terrace/Seminole Heights
Tampa, FL

The Castle on the Lake

“The Castle on the Lake” is one of Seminole Heights’ most unique homes for both location and style. A Spanish Eclectic revival style home from 1928 with brick, stone inlay, and red clay tile accents on the parapet walls perched on a rise on the east side of Lake Roberta. This is a fabulous historical gem filled with high end design and architectural elements for the 1920’s. If there is a one of a kind home, this landmark within the Hampton Terrace National Register Historic District is that home. As you enter the home you will notice the original marble mosaic. Marble is a theme repeated in the interior of the home on the fireplace, both bathrooms and covered sunroom adjacent to the dining room. The stunning hardwood floors through-out this home have been professionally refinished and sparkle as the sun sets over the lake. You will also notice the original cut-glass chandelier and other original fixtures of the home. So much vintage character but the owner also realized that the home has to work for the 21st century so you will have the peace of mind in knowing that the electrical system is new, the a/c unit for the 2nd floor is new, and the kitchen is all new as well. To take advantage of the serene view of Lake Roberta the owner has also added a raised patio accessible from the French doors in the living room. This amazing home is nearly 1800 sq ft with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The home also features a 2 car garage with new doors, new irrigation system, and new landscaping to compliment this enchanting home.

So why the name? For years many in the area just described the house as a little castle because that was what it brought to mind.
