Elegance & Beauty, meet welcoming comfort & privacy! This modern classic is set in the private surrounds of the 700-acre Founders Club, situated on one of the best lots, and adjacent to a private, never to be built upon multi-acre preserve. Walk into this like new home and be instantly wowed by the open floor plan overlooking the pool and beautiful nature, incorporating extreme comfort, yet with extra heavy-duty, energy efficient construction to weather any storm! Simply put, an outstanding, stunning, private property.
The entrance way is framed by blossoming bougainvillea as one enters through steel, but – artfully done – wood-look double doors, into a grand room which encompasses both living, family, and dining room. Configure it as you will, this contemporary floor plan will suit those seeking both modern and traditional floor plans, with beautiful real hardwood flooring throughout. Especially of note are the floating cabinets and gorgeous crystal chandeliers in this one-of-a-kind custom designed home. The great room design merges into the kitchen with its stunning quartz counter-top island, soft-close cabinets and GE Monogram appliances; no need for raising a voice here, the master chef will be in the middle of family and friends’ gatherings as they prepare the evening meal.
The ultra-tall sliders (impact resistant, as are all windows in this house) open onto a gorgeous lanai and pool area; with a natural gas outlet that allows for a connected grill and, one of a kind flame accents to the water features cascading into the substantial pool. Never be without power and AC – a whole house generator kicks in if ever the weather conditions dictate; and you will be safe and sound in this custom designed (but fortress strong) home for the ages.
Inside again, admire the 3 car garage with its electric vehicle and golf cart charging stations, thence to a laundry room (with hanging station) and, not to be missed, an airconditioned storage room, and a separate media closet. The kitchen has a closet pantry and boasts a gorgeous backsplash together with the counter-top and butcher’s sink.
The two spare bedrooms have their own bathrooms, while the master suite is an oasis of calm, being private and spacious, with his and hers walk-in closets, tray ceiling, and its own door to the lanai. A private den rounds out the interior, also with its own exit to the lanai. Cat 6 wiring and UBS ports throughout provide convenience for all electronic needs, ensuring the fastest internet access and best entertainment.
Come enjoy the home, its private setting, and The Founders Club, a smaller community with only 262 homes / home-sites, boasting a Robert Trent Jones, Jr designed 18 hole private golf course and optional club membership, with dining, social and wellness activities. All this, while just twenty minutes from downtown Sarasota, and less to the I75 artery and the delights of University Town Center mall.
As certified by Florida Power and Light, this home exceeds state mandated energy performance standards, so will deliver long term energy cost savings through features such as additional insulation, high efficiency air conditioning and high-quality air-conditioning duct installation.
