Elegant home on a quiet cul-de-sac backing to a nature preserve.
Nestled on 1.57 acres on a quiet cul-de-sac, this elegant home is one of only a handful of homesites in The Sanctuary that backs to a protected nature preserve that offers complete privacy. The tree lined front yard and winding driveway set the stage for this special property. The formal foyer leads to the welcoming great room that features 12’ ceilings and four over-sized windows that offer unobstructed views of the back yard oasis. New custom cabinets flank the left side of the room and tastefully conceal a well-appointed bar to the left and a television to the right. The finish of the concrete floor is as practical as it is timeless, and extends into the heart of this home – the continuous kitchen, breakfast, and keeping rooms. The stunning kitchen is an entertainers dream as it features only the best finishes, Crema Marfil marble counters, stainless steel appliances, a prep island, and is smartly positioned between the breakfast and formal dining rooms. On the opposite side of the house and adjacent to the great room, are the master suite and office. The grand master bedroom offers a sitting area tucked away in a large bay window, and opens to a private 420 sf covered patio that overlooks the pool, cabana, and entire backyard. The master bath features honed travertine counters and floors, and a spacious walk-in closet. The second floor is home to 3 bedrooms, one with en suite facilities, and two that share a bath. At the end of the hall is the large game room with new custom built-in cabinets. But by far, the most spectacular part of this home is the backyard oasis. There is 1200 sf of covered porches, of which almost 600 sf are screened. The inviting swimming pool and elevated hot tub are adjacent to the cabana, which features a large covered sitting area, kitchen, bath, and storage. The rest of the back yard is framed with lush landscaping, trees, a walking path, and views of the nature preserve which can never be developed. The Sanctuary is an environmentally planned community only minutes from The Causeway Bridge and home to miles of nature trails, a Health & Activity Center, fitness center, tournament-size swimming pool, three tennis courts, a ball field, and an active homeowner’s association.
