A private estate on nearly 15 acres awaits behind the gates at the end of a romantic winding drive. Pass the heart-shaped pond with its own gazebo and grazing fields and arrive home to this four-bedroom residence, designed with the perfect blend of form and function. A pavered portico entrance greets guests before stepping inside to soaring tray ceilings, crown molding, and spaces ideal for gracious living. Cook for one or a dozen in the open kitchen with expansive granite island featuring built-in eating space and stainless Kitchenaide appliances. Experience peace of mind with Eagle and PGT windows, hurricane shutters in the lanai, 10,000 watt generator, sprinkler system, intercom system, and electric gate with monitors. Spend endless afternoons on the screened pool terrace with beach entry infinity pool and a salt-generated chlorine system. Live the ultimate equestrian lifestyle with a magnificent barn, complete with seven stalls, workshop, Nelson automatic watering system, and storage. Celebrate the moment out by the picturesque gazebo while you listen to the cinquedeas or watch the stars as they appear in the night sky. No HOA restrictions allow you to live the country lifestyle on your own terms. This piece of pastoral paradise is away from the hustle and bustle of the city but close enough for an easy ride into town for shopping, restaurants, arts and culture, and the dazzling white-sand beaches of Florida’s Gulf Coast.
