This is a rare opportunity to own a unique slice of Florida. The open plan includes 3BR/3BA, playroom/workshop, and an office. Everything has been completely redone: all new doors and windows, plumbing, electrical, insulation, roof in '05, paver circular drive, stucco, septic, and well for irrigation...you name it, it’s been replaced. Starting with the gated courtyard entrance, you’ll be totally enchanted. Inside, you’ll find Brazilian Pine hardwood flooring, tile with wood inlay in the bedrooms, and mexican tile in the living area. The owner is a contractor, so the detail and workmanship throughout are outstanding! The kitchen boasts granite counters, breakfast bar/island, stainless appliances, wine fridge, walk-in pantry, custom vent hood, and a gorgeous copper farmhouse sink. The Master suite has a custom closet system, a Master bath with his/her vessel sinks, plus a beautiful claw foot tub. One of the few remaining original elements is a 360 degree wood burning fireplace.
The outside is a private tropical oasis. Fenced on all sides, and surrounded by 50 ft. high bamboo, the backyard makes for great entertaining. There’s a large paved area with a wrought iron fence to contain pets. Beyond that is a cabana bar, and a salt water Lagoon style pool that has a "beach step" and a waterfall with bench seat underneath it. There's landscape lighting throughout the back yard. Situated just south of Bee Ridge, and close to Bee Ridge Park, this central location can’t be beat. Don't miss out on this one of a kind home.
