Welcome home to a modern gem in the heart of horse country! This elegant Declare model by Shea Homes offers nearly 2,100 sq ft of open living space and aftermarket upgrades that make for an entertainer's DREAM. As you step through the glass inserted front door, you are greeted with porcelain tile carried throughout the home, 6 panel, 8ft solid wood interior doors, and a flood of natural light pouring in from oversized slider doors complete with custom dressing which allows privacy when closed, and expansive views when open! Enjoy that first cup of coffee as the sun rises above the moss laden oak trees that dot the mature landscape behind the home, featuring a walking trail and retention area - guaranteeing no rear neighbors. Immediately to your left, from the front door is one of two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, perfect for guests. This bedroom has large windows, a deep closet, an additional 220v line allowing for plenty of power, and gorgeous custom tile in the glass-enclosed walk-in shower. Continuing through the foyer, you will find the spacious den; equipped with glass inserted French doors. This space could easily be converted into a third bedroom, home office or hobby space. To your right is the utility room that houses your washer/dryer, storage cabinets, utility sink and flex space, linen closet, garage access and half bathroom for short-term guests at the end of the hall. In the garage, note the textured epoxy flooring, top-of-the-line Culligan water treatment system, and central vacuum system. Returning inside, continue to the executive kitchen, boasting a HUGE island, bar seating, high end KitchenAid and GE Monarch appliances and endless storage space. Rich ebony cabinets adorn this bright space, providing balance and flawless contrast against the gray tiled backsplash and breathtaking granite countertops. While exploring the cabinetry, notice the soft close, pull-out drawers made available in each cabinet - making it effortless to reach cookware. Open to the dining and living area, this home aims to please and is perfect for entertaining. With built-in speakers throughout the entire home and lanai, keep the ambiance going no matter where the festivities may take you. The owner's suite is just off of the living area, complete with a large custom walk-in closet, dual vanity, and a tastefully designed walk-in shower with floor-to-ceiling tile. Located just minutes from the World Equestrian Center, I-75, shopping, dining, and recreational activities - this community is one of the most highly desired in the area.
