Popular Wickham Park is 391 acres of walking/running trails, sand volleyball courts, a playground, picnic pavilions, disc golf, and campgrounds. I-95 and Eastern Florida State College are nearby, along with the King Center for the Performing Arts, a venue presenting high-quality stage productions. The beaches are fifteen minutes away!
Rested along a cul-de-sac street, this lovely one-acre estate is a gracious mix of timeless tradition and modern finesse! The property is wrapped with NEW impact-resistant windows and features a NEWER roof and two NEWER HVAC systems. Two tankless water heaters add to the energy-efficient appeal.
This brick-accented beauty boasts a breezy down-home welcome with its big rockin' chair front porch! Grab an ice-cold glass of lemonade, sit, and stay awhile! Inside, travertine tile flooring underscores classic living and dining spaces. A formal living and dining room expanse is ideal for gathering with family and friends. Imagine everyone around a festive holiday table sharing memories and a meal! Lofty ceilings soar above a generous sun-lit family room featuring a stone fireplace embellished with a colonial-style mantel. Glass French doors open to the airy poolside lanai, creating the perfect platform for alfresco entertaining. Spark up a flickering fire and swing open the doors for the ultimate indoor/outdoor experience! Granite sweeps across the breakfast bar kitchen as stacked stone cascades across the backsplash enhancing glass-accented cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, a gas oven range, a counter-height microwave, and a big farmhouse sink. Butted glass brightens the casual dining area, framing sunny backyard views. Double doors lead to the downstairs owner's retreat exhibiting a cozy fireplace, crown-molded ceilings, personal pool entry, a pair of walk-in closets, and an elegant ensuite. Marbled stone highlights dual sinks, a shower with pearlescent listello details, and a sumptuous chandeliered soaking tub. Across the home is a second suite with a walk-in closet, a mosaic-tiled shower with pebble-style flooring, and a granite vanity. These digs are off the laundry room and garage, suggesting an ideal set-up for multi-generational living or special guests. Offering access to the three-car garage, the extensive laundry room doubles as a handy mudroom. A sink, granite counters, cabinetry, and a stainless steel washer and dryer create a convenient drop-off spot for backpacks, shoes, swimsuits, and sports gear. At the front of the home, a short hallway ushers into a half bath and a sizable bedroom, which would make an excellent home office. Another first-floor bath is furnished with a pedestal sink, a tiled tub/shower combination, and a pool door, providing quick access for water-soaked kids and visitors!
An attractive curved banister ornaments the spindled staircase up to a spacious loft, four oversized bedrooms, and a full bath. The loft's open railing offers a bird's eye view of the family room. It's a superb area for a pool table, media, or additional living. On one side of the loft is the largest bedroom outfitted with an extended closet. The sellers are using it as a highly functional in-home classroom. Across the loft is an alcove housing the other three bedrooms and a granite bath with twin sinks and a tiled tub/shower combination. Two of the bedrooms are equipped with walk-in closets. This second-floor layout is perfect for the kiddos, or could also be uber-comfortable accommodations for the in-laws. The upstairs stackable washer and dryer is a helpful addition, keeping dirty laundry at bay!
Brick pavers stretch out over an expansive newly screened lanai showcasing plenty of space for shady lounging or basking in the sun. The capacious recently resurfaced saltwater pool and spa present an energizing escape from the everyday grind, while a pass-through window from the kitchen provides an easy way to feed the hungry outdoor crowds. All overlook a sprawling backyard canvas dappled with lush leafy trees and plenty of grass for pets, gardening, party games, outside sports, and momentous family fun!
This property's security system adds peace of mind; an updated irrigation system keeps the yard green and ready for play; the garage is wired for an electric vehicle.
Over an acre of down-home goodness, an ageless abode with modern flair, and a resplendent backyard get-away. Welcome to upscale living with a generous helping of homespun style!
