Nestled among stately Grandfather oaks, towering pines and beautiful magnolia trees, this French Provincial-style home presents an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Lush Florida foliage and meticulous landscaping create a private setting for the 6.25-acre property, where serenity reigns supreme and the enchanting call of birds are the only sounds. Despite its air of seclusion, this offering is just minutes to shopping, cultural attractions, Gulf beaches and major airports.
Beyond the gated entry lies a stunning achievement in design and stylish functionality. Built in 2017 to meet the exacting standards of its owners, the 5,009-square-foot residence reflects an ambiance of refined elegance throughout its open plan. Formal spaces filled with natural light provide an ideal venue for entertaining and are complemented by a spacious family room with adjoining eating area, large wet bar and a wall of built-in cabinetry that moves via remote control to reveal an office and a home theater equipped with a 10-foot screen, custom lighting and sound systems, and seating for eight.
Sure to please the most demanding chef, the top-of-the-line kitchen is outfitted with double ovens and dishwashers, as well as an abundance of work and storage space including a room-size walk-in pantry with floor-to-ceiling shelving and a rolling ladder. Casual gatherings will focus outdoors, where a heated saltwater pool, fully-equipped kitchen and conversation area provide hours of year-round fun in the sun.
Private accommodations are comprised of four generously-sized bedrooms with bathrooms ensuite. Particularly noteworthy is the ‘canine spa’ offering a full-size grooming tub and a designated dog run with automatic access. Also significant is the 56 x 20-foot climate-controlled garage with 18-foot ceilings that can easily accommodate an RV, boat or car collection.
Several luxurious appointments have been selected to ensure the ultimate in convenience, function and sophistication in this stunning residence. In addition to a generous display of granite and quartz throughout, state-of-the-art smart home technology provides the latest in security, lighting, sound insulation and air and water quality.
