Upon entering the privately gated property, enjoy the stunning drive through a canopy of mature trees lining the way. The front of the home faces the lake, with plenty of room to enjoy the view on the brick-paved front porch. Enter in to over 5,000 square feet of living space, with charming details abound. The foyer is welcoming and airy, with soaring ceilings and hardwood flooring. Head into the custom kitchen, with granite countertops, breakfast bar, island, stainless steel appliances including double ovens and Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, along with an abundance of wood cabinets to meet all of your storage needs. Overlooking the living room, this is the perfect place to gather or entertain, with entryways out to the front and rear of the home. The breakfast room lends a great view to the water through multiple windows, or move into the formal dining room with arched doorways for a more intimate setting. The formal living room is inviting and spacious, with wainscoting, crown molding, and wood-burning fireplace. Continue through to the Florida Room, complete with bar, fireplace, and residential elevator to the second floor. Two half bathrooms and additional bedroom with ensuite bath round out the downstairs. Head up the curved staircase to the additional bedrooms. The spacious owner's suite is the perfect retreat, with plenty of natural light and walk-in closets. A bonus room is located at the back of the owner's suite, and serves as the upstairs location for the elevator. The owner's bathroom includes a soaking tub, extended vanity with dual sinks, and large stand-up shower. The two additional bedrooms upstairs have their own ensuite bathrooms and have been freshly painted. Sunburst 4.5" clear-view shutters and crown molding in each room add luxurious detail throughout the home. The exterior of this property is another world! With over 7.5 acres, this expansive piece of land boasts a deck, pool, pool-house, private dock with lift, regulation-size beach volleyball court, and an orchard of exotic fruit trees including a lychee grove, mangoes, and avocados. Two additional bathrooms are conveniently located inside the pool-house, making outdoor days a breeze.
