UPDATES Galore! 2 Bedrooms/2 Full Bathrooms

(Your First Mortgage)

This Holiday home was completely transformed with extraordinary renovations. The exterior gives off a cool, retro vibe while the interior is contemporary, yet inviting. Every detail in this 2 bedroom/2 full baths/1 car garage residence was thoughtfully executed. For starters, the layout is open, modern, and offers a split bedroom floor plan to provide guests and family members privacy. NEW porcelain floors were installed in the living room, kitchen, and guest bathroom. The living room is gorgeous and filled with natural light that reflects off the vaulted ceiling. Sliders lead to the enclosed back porch with its slate flooring and ceiling fan; a separate door leads to the fenced back yard. A large concrete patio makes the perfect spot for your gas grill and there’s plenty of space to host parties or give the little ones the run of the yard. Back inside, a striking wood burning fireplace, recently outfitted with a NEW marble hearth, separates this wide-open living room space from the stunning eat-in kitchen. The casual dining alcove is framed by three windows that look out to the yard. Recessed lighting streamlines the look. NEW porcelain tile floors shine while the NEW kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, glass tile backsplash, double sink, shining stainless steel appliances, and fixtures look like they were lifted from a gracious living magazine. There’s even a handy separate counter that also boasts a NEW granite countertop and NEW prep sink. This extra space not only provides more elbow room when you’re cooking, but because it is visible from the living room, it can serve as the spot to accommodate party platters or can be set-up as a bar area when entertaining. Both the living room and the kitchen were treated to NEW baseboards, making for a polished finish. The integration of these two rooms is very well done. An adjacent laundry room is nicely appointed with plenty of space and storage; it is windowed and has a utility tub. As for the guest bath, besides the NEW porcelain tile flooring, a NEW vanity is complemented by NEW horizontally placed tile in the shower/tub area. The sunny second bedroom is a good size. With its laminate flooring you can create anything out of this room. From personal yoga studio to private home office to a nursery or playroom. The master bedroom suite is peacefully idyllic. The same easy-care laminate flooring runs through the bedroom and into the roomy walk-in closet where a shoe rack and other shelving were carefully mounted to maximize its square footage. You’ll love the bathroom’s shower room. It also features a NEW vanity and a tub. Throughout this refurbished home, all the ceilings were NEWLY retextured. Both the interior and the exterior are NEWLY painted. The roof was REPLACED in 2014. Despite its proximity to the dazzling Gulf of Mexico, this property is NOT in a flood zone and is less than a 20-minute walk to Gulfside Elementary, Paul R Smith Middle School, and Anclote High School. A five-minute drive will get you to the world-famous Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks and the lush North Anclote River Nature Park. Not to mention, the amenity-rich 8,300-acre Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park with its campgrounds, nature trails, playgrounds, bike trail, volleyball, horseshoe pits, equestrian trail, shelters, and picnic areas. Besides the nearby Tarpon Springs Golf Course and all the dining and fishing and water sports that are uniquely Floridian, this one-of-a-kind community is tight-knit and family friendly.

(Your First Mortgage)

 

You’ll be surrounded by graceful living in this magnificent gated community of St George; less than a 10-minute walk to the Fox Hollow Golf Club and its restaurants. This 2-bedroom, 2 full bath, 2 car garage home is no exception. Exquisitely maintained inside and out, you will be drawn to the open layout and all the natural light that saturates the interior. Outdoors, lush grasses are offset by curved flower beds rich with mulch and a lovely selection of trees, shrubbery, and impeccably manicured hedges. The pavered drive is a stylish touch with the grounds pre-wired for landscape lighting. Nestled in the tranquil backyard is a lanai area that offers plenty of shade but is also screened to create the ideal ambiance. Extended and pavered in 2016 it offers entrée to the yard and from the house. The front door is shaded by a barrel-fashioned portico while the foyer makes for a grand entrance topped with stunning millwork on the ceiling. Classic french doors introduce versatile space that can serve as a home office or study. Because new laminate flooring was installed in 2015, you can also utilize this as space for a sublime personal gym or private yoga studio. Special touches throughout elevate the interior design: crown molding, a spectacular tray ceiling, curved archways dressed in beautiful detail, and Calico draperies that adorn the windows. A NEW Bryant AC was fitted in 2018. The eat-in kitchen’s wide-open galley style features tons of space, a huge countertop and sink with plenty of room for the casual dining bar defined by statement pendant lighting. Besides high hats, natural light floods in from the breakfast nook’s three windows that are outfitted in blinds that may be adjusted from the top or the bottom to suit any time of day. The windows above the cabinetry shine down on the granite counters and the dishwasher, range, and microwave installed in 2015, as well as the new refrigerator installed in 2018. The laundry room is also lit by a window and boasts a handy storage shelf. You’ll find the living room both expansive and adjacent to the kitchen, providing that Great Room feeling. This opens up the floorplan but also makes it feel warm and welcoming. Besides the gorgeous bamboo flooring that was installed in 2019, directly from its striking foyer there are views straight through to glass-paned french doors that lead to the al fresco entertainment center. The formal dining room is illuminated by a picture window and is also situated to make it feel part of the space, but it’s separate enough to stage special-occasion dining or be another idyllic place to entertain guests and clients. As for the master suite, the sunken garden tub is an oasis. Accompanied by high-end fixtures, dual sinks, and a selection of well-placed windows, a separate shower room and commode are behind a closed door. In addition to a well-lit, walk-in closet that feels large enough to be another bedroom, the master itself is elegantly appointed with two sets of doors to the outside; the perfect retreat after a long day. The HOA fees cover, lawn, shrub/tree care & fertilizing, as well as the painting of the home’s exterior. Close to the finest in Trinity’s shopping and its eclectic dining options; you’ll feel right at home.
