The Amber In Tampa Bay Magazine

Tropical estate living is a concept Alvarez Homes understands and has incorporated into their portfolio of custom homes in the Tampa Bay area for over two decades.

This 3,831 square-foot island-state-of-mind home is built in the seaside village of Little Harbor in Ruskin. Surrounded by the lush foliage of a pristine conservation preserve, The Amber is situated on a deep-water canal of Antigua Cove. Its L-shaped dock can accommodate boats of up to 60 feet and provides easy access to the waterways that spill into Tampa Bay.

Sunlight filters through the palms into the loggia entrance, blurring the lines of the outdoors with the interior space. The welcoming foyer leads into a spacious great room, dining room and kitchen and also provides access to a study, powder room and central courtyard.

From the gently splashing fountain in the courtyard to the sparkling pool next to the canal, the tranquil sound and sight of water is all around this home, with outdoor living space of over 750 square feet that includes a balcony and covered porches.

There is an expansive entertaining area by the waterfront that includes a terrace, a covered porch, the pool, an outdoor fireplace and an outdoor kitchen.

On the second floor, the spacious master bedroom suite shares a covered balcony with a bedroom, while a convenient upstairs laundry room is adjacent to the third bedroom and bath.

The impressive coral fireplace in the great room, the abundant millwork, deep crown moldings and beautiful trim finishes are the type of signature craftsmanship you expect in a residence by Alvarez Homes.

Likewise, solid walnut plank flooring, solid exterior block wall construction and impact resistant windows are typical of the superior building materials that were used in the construction of this elegant residence.

These luxurious amenities and the unique floor plan create an island lifestyle for The Amber that will make dreams come true.
