You really must see it to believe it. This one-of-a-kind tropical retreat is a boater or nature lovers’ dream come true. Imagine a generous 2,638 square foot home with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and a 3-car garage nestled among lush tropical gardens and giant oak trees. Imagine this setting on a freshwater canal leading to the Dead River which opens to the Harris Chain of Lakes and, eventually to the Atlantic itself! Imagine owning one of the most exceptional homes in all of Lake County.
Beneath the canopy of a quiet tree-lined street, you’ll arrive at a circular driveway leading to the front patio, one of the home’s three brick pavered courtyards. Entry through the tiled foyer leads directly to the formal living room with fireplace and mantle, framed in white brick and flanked, on either side, by large built-in bookcases. The separate dining room is on the opposite side of the entry across from the living room. Sun beams through six sky lights in the extra-large family room. A built-in cabinet houses TV and books for relaxation, while a desk concealed in a small closet provides a place for work or study.
A modern kitchen, with crisp white cabinetry, boasts a double pantry, an attractive black and white backflash and a full range of appliances that include a range, microwave, dishwasher, disposal, and a refrigerator. The home is also equipped with a water purifier as well as an energy efficient electric water heater. Off the kitchen is a Florida room with an eclectic, seashore-themed, built-in wet bar. Beneath the bar’s see-through counter-top a sandy beach scene reveals Florida seashells and a variety of deep sea treasures. Next to the bar is a fully renovated pool shower and bath. The ultra-modern shower is frameless and tiled in soothing tones of grey and white.
Outside the periwinkle blue master bedroom there’s a second brick paver courtyard. A quiet place to sit, relax and enjoy the tranquil beauty of your surroundings. A screened and heated pool with spa and waterfall are your private backyard oasis and a screened-in lanai offers yet another 1,300 square feet of outdoor living space for your enjoyment.
You might decide to lower your boat into the water from your covered dock. In which case an electric lift, capable of handling boats up to 24 feet long, will get you ready to cast off for a day of fishing, or lunch at nearby Hurricanes Dockside Grill on the Dead River.
How you choose to use the second building on the property is up to you. The heated & cooled, 429 square foot studio or workshop comes with built-in cabinets, workbench, laminated wood floors, running water and a stand-up attic. It’s an exceptional flex space that can be used for almost any purpose, including an office.
Schools assigned to the home’s address are Treadway Elementary, Tavares Middle and Tavares High and the property’s great location adds to the allure of this special home. Major highways 429 and 441, shopping, restaurants, and entertainment at Lake Square Mall, schools, churches, medical offices and Waterman Hospital are close by, while Orlando, Daytona Beach and the Gulf Coast are all within comfortable driving distance. Call today to schedule an appointment. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience the timeless beauty and relaxed pace of Old Florida.
