This exceptional home, located within the exclusive, gated, residential community of Buckingham Estates in Sanford, Florida is a former builder’s model on a private, conservation homesite. A setting of stately palm trees and lush native plants and flowers along with a conservation pond view provide the perfect retreat for lovers of nature and outdoor living.
As you approach on the paved walkway you’ll immediately be struck by the home’s impressive stone elevation and tile roof. Pebbled tiles run the length of a charming entryway that leads you to double beveled glass doors. Once inside, you’ll discover 2,746 sq. ft. of luxurious living space featuring a contemporary, open 3-way split plan with four bedrooms, 3.5 baths and attached garage space for three cars. The elegant formal living room, with double crown moldings and a coffered ceiling offers views of the screened-in pool and opens to a dining room, done in barn green paint, with contrasting neutral tiles and a decorative ceiling. Elegant, polished, dark wood floors, built-in niches, a wooden ceiling fan and a majestic tray ceiling make a bold yet engaging statement in the spacious family room.
Open to the family room, you’ll find the thoroughly modern kitchen equipped with a complete Bosch stainless steel appliance package. From double ovens and cooktop to microwave, dishwasher and disposal, you’ll want for nothing while cooking, entertaining, or cleaning up after. A large, curved, panoramic window floods the kitchen with light and brings the outdoors in, while a built-in seating bench is the perfect place to enjoy a quick breakfast or afternoon snack. No expense has been spared on the attractive, white 42” cabinetry, exotic black granite countertops accented in blue, the designer tile and the walk-in pantry. And what household is really complete without an in-home laundry area with cabinets and a utility sink?
When it comes to the master suite, life could not be more pleasant or relaxed. The bedroom, with its tawny plank wood floors, walls in soothing white, and roomy his and her closets beckoning your comfort beneath a soaring trey ceiling. There’s even a quiet sitting area that could serve equally well as an office, offering an expansive view of the conservation grounds and lake. And since you have no neighbors to the rear of your home, nothing can spoil your view or sully your enjoyment of the nature that surrounds you. Awash in relaxing powder blue, the master bath’s his and her vanities, oak cabinetry and large picture framed mirrors aid grooming and beauty care. Sinks and a countertop of marble, a garden tub for leisurely baths, in addition to a spacious shower complete a retreat where scented breezes waft through plantation shutters in the master bath and throughout the house.
Two of the three remaining bedrooms are spacious, feature generous walk-in closets, ceiling fans, crown and picture moldings and full baths. The fourth bedroom, just off the entry, is equipped with white built-in cabinets and bookcases, currently serving as an office.
The home’s enclosed pool, spa and pavered patio overlook the conservation area and offer the ideal space for relaxation and entertaining. In addition to enjoying the privacy and security of Buckingham Estates’ 24-hour staffed gate, as a resident, you’ll have access to the community clubhouse, pool, playground & the network of biking, running & walking trails that encourage an outdoor lifestyle. Convenient access to the Wekiva Trail.
