Paradise awaits you with this custom-built waterfront home and boat lift! Enjoy 97 feet of water frontage located right on the Little Manatee River inlet with direct access to Tampa Bay! With no HOA or CDD, you get to enjoy the luxury of limited property restrictions saving you money! Complete with hurricane shutters, this fabulous home was built on pilings to elevate the stately residence well above sea level to provide additional protection from the occasional Florida storm and to keep the flood premiums low! From the moment you arrive, you will be greeted with double driveways that offer plenty of additional parking. A grand stairway entrance and wraparound porch with a gorgeous stained glass double door entryway welcomes you into this spacious 3 bedrooms, 2 bathroom home. As you enter the bright Great room full of windows and views of the canal you will appreciate the high ceilings, the gorgeous tile, laminate floors, and plantation shutters that add the Florida style to this fantastic floorplan. Designed to offer privacy as well as function, the split bedroom plan places the roomy master suite on one side of the home and the two guest bedrooms and bathroom on the adjacent side. The master suite is a private escape of its own to enjoy offering views of the canal, access to the huge back patio portion of the wraparound porch as well as double master closets, an ensuite with separate vanities, a large garden tub, a Roman shower, and a separate water closet! When not camping out in the master, enjoy cooking in the kitchen that is nestled in the back of the home so the cook can enjoy all the beauty of the property but still be able to hide a mess if unexpected guests stopped by! There are plenty of large 42-inch cabinets set off by ample tasteful Florida-style solid surface countertops. Storage in this kitchen isn't a problem with the large pantry and utility closet. The washer and dryer are conveniently located in the utility closet in the kitchen but can easily be moved downstairs if preferred. On the front side of the home, you will find a cozy dining room just off the Great room offering additional entertaining space. On the opposite side, the floorplan offers a guest bathroom and two guest rooms, one currently being used as an office with double door entry and built-in shelving offering additional storage. If work isn't on your mind anymore, the room can be easily transformed back into a bedroom. The alternate guest bedroom is located at the back of the home which offers views of the canal. Need more space? This home has it! Downstairs you will find a palette to do as much as your imagination can create, a double garage with a total sq ft of 1597! The possibilities are endless for a home gym, game room, craft space, workshop, or anything else you can dream up. Don't forget to bring your boat! This home has a huge covered boat lift with a wraparound dock complete with power and water! Fish at night right in your own backyard or take the boat out, it's your choice at this property! For the days you don't feel like being on the water, the large fenced backyard with an expansive paver brick patio offers a fabulous place to relax or entertain. Take in the beautiful sunsets from the porch, doc, or interior of this dream property! Don't be afraid of the stairs, there is a lift! This home has it all to make your dream of waterfront living a reality! Just minutes from Bahia Beach, EG Simmons Park, and I75! This home will not last!
