Upon entering through the glass inserted front door into the defined entryway, your eyes are immediately drawn to the volume tray ceilings, 8ft tall doors, and a sneak peek at the fabulous kitchen and living room area. Directly to your right is a den enclosed with french glass doors - perfect for an office or study area. Moving onward, the oversized linen closet with ample storage and a half bath to your right. Across the foyer, a hallway leads to another storage closet and the guest suite, equipped with a walk-in closet and spacious bathroom to include a walk-in shower with pebbled flooring. Once past the foyer, you are greeted with additional, tasteful upgrades and endless configuration opportunities entering the kitchen and open living area! In the executive kitchen, enjoy stainless steel high-end double ovens, a six-burner gas stove, built-in microwave, under cabinet lighting, a GIANT island with deep storage drawers, granite countertops and ample space for both chef and guests to maneuver!
Just behind the kitchen is the utility room and smart space. You will find yet more storage features, a washer and dryer, and a work area that can be utilized for folding, sewing, or even a writing desk. Across from the utility room is a true three-car garage, with easy access to all bays as they are open to each other. A utility sink and water treatment system may catch your eye as well. Saving the best for last, as you make your way back into the home from the utility area, several showstopping features will aim to please. The first is a stunning, floor-to-ceiling built-in bar area with two wine coolers! Grab a beverage of choice and easily remain engaged with company from anywhere in the open living space. Best of all is the BREATHTAKING, unobstructed view of the lake, state-of-the-art clubhouse, and majestic oak trees dotting the landscape just beyond the shoreline. Following the home's flow to the right, discover a vast owner's suite and spa-like bathroom with soaker tub, floor-to-ceiling tile in the walk-in shower area along with pebbled flooring and a bench seat, a walk-in closet, linen closet, and double vanities. It doesn't stop there!

Plumbed with a gas line directly to the built-in fire pit and connection for a grill, enjoy the beautiful Florida lifestyle all year round! An oversized pergola completes this space with a small break from the sun and offers additional gathering opportunities as guests settle in for conversation or as you greet the day with that first cup of coffee.
