One of a kind custom built luxury home on over 1.6 acres of tropical secluded splendor, backdropped by a glistening pond & nestled in the woods creating a private resort feel. A private driveway is canopied by lush trees and lined with meticulous landscaping and grassy scapes. The driveway leads to a parking area and 2 car garage, and to the left the driveway wraps around the back to a larger parking pad and 4 car garage. Matching the elevation, an extra large shed serves as boat storage and room for a workshop. The back reveals a tropical paradise and an entertainers dream. The lanai sprawls the length of the house and overlooks the huge shimmering pool and massive separate hot tub. The pool has multiple waterfalls, built in tables, shallow areas and a removable mesh pool fence.

Just beyond the pool, a firepit area cuddles a sloping lawn that unveils a lake surrounded by woods and a natural countryside vista. Barbeques and parties are a must, utilizing the summer kitchen adorned with beautiful labradorite colored granite and stainless reflective tile backsplash. The summer kitchen includes a stainless steel grill with hood, 2 burners, and under-mount stainless sink. Shaded by willowy trees is a playground where the breeze from the water flows. Conveniently located off the back lanai is a pool storage closet and a cabana bath equipped with a waterless urinal, toilet, and floating sink with custom wooden cabinet.
