Property Description

Situated under the shade of beautiful large trees, the large front porch welcomes visitors and is also a great place to watch birds and spend a time relaxing in a rocking chair or on the swing passing time. As you enter into the foyer, your eye moves immediately to the right and the beautiful formal dining room. Memories will be made there over a delicious holiday meal. Further into this lovely home is the heart of every home... the kitchen. Custom cabinets, double convection oven, late model stainless steel premium grade appliances, granite counters, recessed lighting, a desk, dining area, and a bar with a built-in wine cooler are all reasons why this will be the center of home life. There is a walk-in pantry with tons of storage too! Adjacent to the amazing kitchen is the great family room. A large space perfect for entertaining or movie night with built in surround sound speakers. For those cool evenings, a fireplace will provide warmth and a great place to read a book or have a conversation. The family room isn't the only place in this spacious house to enjoy... Just behind the kitchen is an inviting sunroom overlooking the deck and back yard. This is the perfect four seasons room and can be enjoyed year-round thanks to heating and cooling in this space. Back into the house and a few steps down to a split lower level is one of my favorite rooms in the house.... A super fun playroom with a wet bar and a refrigerator. The playroom leads to an oversized garage with oversized doors (to accommodate that large truck, SUV, or boat). But let's go back inside... at the rear split level stairwell, we are going up to a private bedroom suite with a bath. Perfect for guest or maybe a mother in law's quarters. Secluded from the other upstairs bedrooms, this large are offers quiet privacy from the rest of the home. Now going back downstairs, past the kitchen is the primary, owner's suite. Thoughtfully placed on the main level, this oasis offers a large bath with a separate jetted bath and shower plus a closet made for a movie star! This is the place to unwind after a long day and enjoy a relaxing bath or shower before retiring for the night. Upstairs are more bedrooms and an open library area with built in book cases. Finished storage abounds. One of the three bedrooms upstairs in this part of the home has it's on ensuite bath. The other two bedrooms share another separate bath. Kids or grandkids would love this area. Let's head back downstairs to the back yard, deck, and another favorite part of the house... the awesome outdoor kitchen.... For outdoor entertaining and family time, you will not find a better place! There is a large deck with café lighting off the sunroom overlooking the back yard. Behind that is a gas fire pit for those cool evenings. But the best is yet to come... a covered outdoor dining area and an outdoor kitchen with a built in grill, range top, and deep fryer. The yard is large enough for a nice pool. The front and back yards are irrigated with a sprinkler system. There is a separate storage shed in the rear corner of this large lot. For those times where the weather threatens the Gulf Coast, fear not.... There is an automatic whole house generator and hurricane shutters to keep you safe. Did I mention this lovely home is comfortably North of I-10 yet close to everything?
