Property Description

New video link below! Custom built in 2005, this stunning 2-story French country family home is ideally situated on a 5 acre lot with no HOA. Secluded and peaceful with no direct neighbors, this house overlooks conservation land on the Southern perimeter. Enjoy beautiful sunrises to the East and sunsets to the West. As you enter through the ornate wrought iron gates and continue past the front entrance on your right, you arrive at a 3 door garage. A beautifully constructed Woody’s barn on the left, perfectly concealed, has been tastefully designed to compliment the style of this home in 2013. The organic garden has an abundance of tropical plants. Orchids thrive outside and hang from the trees. The fragrance of frangipani (Plumeria trees) can be smelt everywhere in the summer. Bring your telescope as this truly is an astronomer’s paradise. This house really lends itself to outdoor living. Double Georgian patio doors open out from the great room to the paved caged lanai area. There is so much room to cook outside and entertain with friends. This home is wired with Control 4 Home Automation and Smart Home Control system which just needs updating, so you can play all of your favorite music throughout the house - including by the pool - right from your phone. The large kitchen is an entertainer’s dream. The KitchenAid stainless steel appliances compliment the granite island and counter tops. Cook on the 6 burner gas stovetop while you take out a cold bottle of wine from the wine cooler to share with guests before dinner. On the 1st floor in a separate wing you find the large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom complete with his and her sinks & closets. Open the patio doors that lead out directly onto the lanai. Lounge on the sun shelf and relax. The south facing salt water pool beckons you off the sun-shelf. The Hot Tub Jacuzzi has therapy jets, lights and a fountain. The pool area offers total seclusion. The ornate staircase leads you to a picture window and the guest bedroom facing to the south. Your guests will wake up to incredible views of the conservation area that frames this property. Continue on the 2nd floor towards the north past the loft library bookcase to find 2 more bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms and walk in closets. The 2nd floor also offers 2 bonus rooms to the east and west wings of the home which are currently a media room and office or gym. As you look down from the wrought iron railing/balcony above, overlooking the family room, you are drawn to the Corner Ledge Stone and Gas Fireplace which compliments this room. This property is equipped and designed for your equine and canine friends. Your pups will be safe to roam off leash around the whole property. Additional to the PVC fencing surrounding the property, ‘Dogwatch’ invisible fence is installed around the complete perimeter. The custom designed barn offers a very inviting home for your horses, walk across the path from the house to visit them anytime day or night even in your pj’s! This uniquely designed “L-shaped,” barn, compliments this unique French country property. The barn contains 3 stalls, with dual access to the front and back of the property, a hay room, mancave/workshop, and an air-conditioned tack room. The barn is fully lit and crowned with a custom built cupola and brass horse weathervane. Prepared for summer storms, this home has a custom generator hook up and lexair hurricane shutters for the whole house and barn. https://vimeo.com/531735117
