This is luxury, where you least expect it with NO HOA! Majestically settled on two and a half acres, protected by an electric gate and fully fenced, amid lush foliage and 60 fruit trees, this Parade of Homes winner is a masterful mix of uncompromising craftsmanship and design. The Tuscan-inspired architecture displays a tile roof, exterior stone accents, and geometrical outlines.
Inside, beautiful modular tile flooring sweeps through open sun-lit spaces, topped by 12 & 14ft crown molded tray ceilings. Natural light streams through plantation shutters and transom windows. Two sets of sliders off the formal living and family rooms open to a screened, heated saltwater fountain pool & expansive covered lanai, overlooking the acreage. Mineral-infused granite counters and backsplashes accent rich espresso wood cabinetry in the elegant epicurean island kitchen, showcasing a breakfast bar, SS appliances, and under and over cabinet lighting. The walk-in butler’s pantry with a separate refrigerator provides plenty of extra storage and prep space. On the west wing of the home, French doors introduce the largest of two master suites, outlined with a two-dimensional tray ceiling. The retreat features a cozy sitting area and private pool access, along with a stunning resort-style ensuite w/granite vanity, two sinks, huge listello tiled shower with double shower heads & sumptuous jetted tub. The handsomely appointed second master is ideal for in-laws or special guests. All baths are adorned with granite vanities, and one offers convenient pool access. The fifth bedroom makes an ideal office, exhibiting a walk-in closet that doubles as a safe room. The voluminous laundry room presents ample cabinetry and counter space and doubles as a mudroom or hobby room. The home comes equipped with an electric hurricane shutter for the front door, hurricane impact curtain for the back porch, and panels for each window. A security alarm system and transferable termite bond add extra peace of mind.
The property is fenced and protected by an electric gate, and 2 acres are zoned agricultural, allowing the opportunity for reduced taxes. Two outbuildings, 14×30 and 10×12, are located on the property, creating perfect space for lawn equipment or tack rooms. The variety of fruit trees include lychee, mango, banana, tangerine, persimmon, and lemon.
