The cumulative age of the majestic oaks that stand guard over this one-of-a-kind property must surely reach into the thousands, each telling a story and creating a special ambiance one can only understand by being there. These oaks, together with amazing natural Florida foliage, are the backdrop for paver pathways that wind throughout this enchanting 2.6-acre bayfront site. The grounds are magical in and of themselves, but become sublime as you take in the views offered by over 200 feet of direct water frontage. The expansive patios, porches, gazebos and sunrooms of the Key West-style main house were designed to fit comfortably within these natural surroundings and absorb views from every angle, whether waterfront or focused over the manicured grounds. This casual and charming three-bedroom (potential for additional bedrooms), three-and-a-half bath home blends seamlessly with its surroundings, creating enchanting and cozy spaces both inside and out. In addition to the main house, another cottage on the property is a blank slate, but would be ideal as a fitness center with its own pool, or as a studio or additional room for guests. A picturesque portico welcomes you to this estate, and the resort-like setting is made complete by the lighted tennis court, sport court, extensive air-conditioned storage space and dock offering various boat lift and mooring options. Truly one of the most enchanting estate properties. Square footage and bedroom-bathroom count include both homes.
