Located within the highly desired private and gated community The Springs in g, Florida, this custom, 3,527 square foot, 4-bedroom, 4.5 bath single family home brings a delightful French country accent to luxury living. Redolent of homes appearing in Architectural Digest, you’ll find this exceptional property on a quiet, tree-lined street with no drive-by traffic to interfere with the peace and tranquility of the setting. Perhaps best described as old-style cottage, Pottery Barn inspired, it’s a special home, both charming and unique.
Lush landscaping greets you as you cross the brick drive and pathway leading to the designer front door. Step inside and you enter the home’s impressive great room, featuring 16' ceilings, and a large skylight that floods the room with sunshine. Antique, Old Chicago brick floors, a large wood burning brick fireplace and a built-in, granite topped, fully plumbed wet bar create the indelible impression of originality and comfort. The open and airy formal dining room off the Great Room is elegantly appointed with chair molding, as well as the crown molding, which exists throughout the home. Located behind the Great Room, the family room has hardwood floors and French doors leading to an outside, open air patio, which extends across the entire rear of the home. The laundry room even has a built-in shower, anticipating the possible addition of a pool.
Spiral staircases lead to the upstairs’ master, while the remaining three bedrooms are downstairs. All three feature large walk-in closets and roomy baths, finished in an eclectic combination of walls covered with subway tiles, and furniture-style vanities.
The unusual kitchen features crisp white cabinetry, white pine ceilings accented with crown molding, leopard grey granite countertops and wood floors. An Old World-style red brick oven sits in the center of the kitchen, commercially vented to the outside, having spared no expense in the renovation, and a full complement of modern appliances ensure convenience and reliability. An arched, brick pass-through window simplifies food handling and presentation when dining or entertaining on the adjacent patio.
Twin spiral staircases lead to the second floor and the en suite master bedroom and bath. The bedroom has a balcony with a commanding view of the greenbelt and wooded areas behind the home. The master bath features a free standing tub, and a green tiled dresser-like sink, with granite top, suggestive of a farmhouse style. A large loft space on the second floor, that currently serves as a billiards room, can be re-purposed for any number of uses. Two further selling features worthy of mention are the renovations and upgrading that have been undertaken and the care with which the present owners have treated this home.
The house has been entirely re-plumbed with new pipe to the water meter, and hot water tank with heat pump. The roof has been replaced as well as the air conditioning system. The yard has been fenced in, all windows (including new granite sills) and exterior doors have been replaced and an added designer front door, and matching door on the 2-car garage have been installed. Many interior rooms have wooden ceilings and the bathrooms and laundry room have been completely remodeled. In its current upgraded condition, the home proves to be very energy efficient. Living in The Springs means communing daily with nature. Nestled on 400 acres of rolling forest.
