This property is all about space, privacy and old Florida charm. Set well back from the road, this property has a an extra-wide driveway leading to two garages but that's just the beginning. As the house comes into view, you'll appreciate the lush setting with gulf glimpses from the upper balconies at the rear. Set on almost a half-acre, the private yard features mature palms casting shadows across the 32-ft. saltwater pool and sun terrace. A gate provides deeded access to the white sandy beach. Inside, the octagonal 26-ft. living room is on the second floor, providing expansive open living space with pine wainscoting beneath an airy tent-style ceiling. It's a comfortable space designed for gathering and engaging with family and friends. Sliding doors provide access to the generous balcony and allow sea breezes to waft gently indoors. Tile floors connect the sitting and dining areas with the separate kitchen, which includes a table and a host of new stainless appliances. The best spot for breakfast is perched on stools by the bay window, enjoying the amazing view. The master suite is also on this level with a private bath, closet storage and balcony access. The shady wraparound porch offers a generous area for alfresco dining and entertaining. Climb the steps to the lookout for dramatic sunset views over the treetops to the shimmering Gulf of Mexico. Two further bedrooms and another bath and half bath complete the second floor. The first floor has a large covered terrace for outdoor living. A white safety fence separates it from the beautiful private pool and lush yard. There's a second kitchen, two more guest bedrooms, a bathroom with laundry and a second sitting room. It could easily be converted into a separate unit for independent family members or used as a rental opportunity. One of the garages has a dehumidifier and the other has air conditioning and heat, providing useful space as a workshop or storage. The property has been well maintained with a top-grade metal hip roof and hurricane straps. Standing at 19.5-ft. elevation, flood insurance is not required.
