The impressive Spanish-style home was custom built in 1925 for Val Maestro Antuono, one of the country's wealthiest cigar manufacturers. It's now listed for $2,599,990.

Quick history: Antuono's family, who emigrated from Italy, owned a grocery store in Tampa. As a teenager, Antuono dropped out of school to make cigars at the store, eventually starting his own cigar factory, The Tampa Bay Times reported in 2018.

  • He expanded his business, and over time became one of the recognized labels in the industry.

The exact address is 4024 W Bay to Bay Blvd. At 5,930 square feet, it has 6 beds and 6 baths.

Original structure: Current homeowner and real estate agent Kay Hubbard told me the home's current footprint is true to the original, for the most part. On almost an acre of land, it was designed to be a striking estate.

  • The 1,800-square-foot loggia, a sort of covered porch, is larger than many homes. It was certainly larger than most homes in 1925.

Architectural details: Some of Hubbard's favorite details are the hand painted wood beams in the upstairs living room and the tiled fireplace, both original to the house.

  • She also noted there used to be horses kept where the pool is now.
  • And the tiles in the loggia are the same tiles as those in Ybor City's Columbia Restaurant.

Highlights: Two kitchens, multiple living areas and fireplaces, tons of room for entertaining, mother-in-law suite, four-car garage, mature landscaping, Spanish-style design.

Listed by: Buy In The Bay Realty Group (Kay@hubbardlending.com).

Americans increasingly see China as an enemy

One in three Americans, and a majority of Republicans, now view China as an enemy of the United States, according to a new survey from Pew Research Center.

By the numbers: Just 9% of Americans consider China a "partner," while 55% see Beijing as a "competitor" and 34% as an "enemy."

Scoop: Leaked HHS docs spotlight Biden's child migrant dilemma

Fresh internal documents from the Department of Health and Human Services show how quickly the number of child migrants crossing the border is overwhelming the administration's stretched resources.

Driving the news: In the week ending March 1, the Border Patrol referred to HHS custody an average of 321 children per day, according to documents obtained by Axios. That's up from a weekly average of 203 in late January and early February — and just 47 per day during the first week of January.

Mounting emissions data paints bleak picture on Paris climate goals

Researchers keep finding new ways to reveal that nations are together showing very few signs of getting on track to meet the Paris Agreement's goals.

One big question: That's whether a spate of recent analyses to that effect, and scientific reports coming later this year, will move the needle on meaningful new policies (not just targets).
