Nestled on 5 glorious acres, this two-story, 2315 SF ranch style home is accented by a charming wrap-around porch. Set well back from the road, it’s a true pastoral estate dotted with lush trees and featuring a free-standing barn, storage shed, and working chicken pasture. Inside, newly updated big-ticket items include: NEW roof and NEW skylights (both in 2021); NEW wood blinds in the bedrooms, laundry, and master bathroom; NEW luxury vinyl plank flooring in both upstairs bedrooms and office/bonus room; and NEW interior paint. Inside the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home, brilliant natural light illuminates the Great Room boasting a wood burning fireplace framed by natural stone. Vaulted ceilings add a touch of splendor and reveal the second floor’s hallway with airy effect. The adjacent dining space is absolutely lovely. Lit by three large windows, it too is bright and spacious. As for the kitchen, besides the dual serving ports that are your must-have entertainment portals, the casual dining bar makes a cozy statement. From the stainless-steel appliances to the vivid cabinetry, tiled backsplash, and recessed lighting, the kitchen offers open vistas of your great outdoors as these two rooms combine to span the width of the home. The ground floor master suite is sunny and welcoming. Its ensuite bath is a beautiful mélange of contemporary lines and rustic styling, cabinets galore, dual sinks, and a walk-in shower. With the bedroom connected directly to the home office, your morning commute is an effortless one! Besides this inspired layout, the guest bedrooms and baths have wonderful ambiance with unique touches that set them apart from the everyday. In further amenities, you’ll find a well-appointed laundry room with window, commode, and utility sink. Off the lanai is a storage room with shelving, the perfect spot to house holiday décor, luggage, and of course pool equipment. The completely covered back porch that runs alongside the shimmering pool makes for a setting to suit any celebration. The pool and tile-trimmed spa are topped with a birdcage. This is your backdrop for parties, or those cherished weekends spent relaxing. Partially fenced, the property has both a septic system and a well.
