A classic Mediterranean masterpiece awaiting your final touches! This grand, 2-story, 4BR/4BA home, centrally located in the San Marco community of the BallenIsles Golf & Country Club development, offers spectacular golf course views with all the security and privacy of an estate home. An open floorplan and large, 2-story windows matched with volume ceilings bring the glow of the sun throughout this home. Contemporary additions and upgrades make this a classic-styled home with all the modern amenities for contemporary living and entertaining. This home can truly be your castle, with modern storm and safety features that protect your family and add year-round comfort. Significant upgrades have been made throughout the home within the last year, inside and out, including tile and
lighting, and a saltwater pool conversion with self-cleaning pump. More than $ 10,000 was spent on custom drapes and blinds throughout the entire home. Main rooms feature 18 ”designer tile and have been recently painted in pleasing, neutral tones. The home is in immaculate condition and is sparsely decorated, ready for your vision. Safety and security are ensured, with a full-house, self-maintaining natural-gas-powered generator that runs the entire home, from lights to A/C to computers and water heater. Creature comforts extend to the air-conditioned, 2-car garage. A professional-grade Weber gas grill runs off the home's natural gas line for anytime convenience. There are many new screens in the porch enclosure. The great room is part of an open floorplan that allows easy flow from the generous kitchen area to poolside, while gathering comfortably in the middle of it all. The kitchen is open to the second floor, with large windows allowing for loads of natural light to stream in while cooking. Granite countertops, a top-line chef's-grade gas range, and a wet bar with refrigerator make this kitchen a foodie's delight. Huge cabinets and wide-open countertops offer lots of storage and entertaining space. The office is off the main room, but owns its own space. A luxurious, custom-made, full-length, built-in bookshelf, cabinets and desk anchor the classic stylings. Large widows with elegant drapes and wooden blinds frame views of the deck and golf course beyond. The first-floor master bedroom offers luxury and style, with a tray ceiling, newly-added recessed lighting, and large windows looking out towards the deck. Newly replaced flooring includes 20“ Travertine tile in the bedroom, and upgraded, engineered-wood flooring in the hallway. The master bathroom features a centerpiece Jacuzzi-style tub, walk-in shower, and glass brick walls for natural light and privacy. His & Hers full-length marble vanities also include ceiling-to-counter mirrors. A tray ceiling mimics the master bedroom with recessed lighting. Just off the main room, the octagonal-shaped formal dining room offers seating for 8 and includes a dining table with newly upholstered chairs. The second floor fills with lots of window light and features Berber carpeting throughout. The loft area offers a second reading or TV area and has a recessed ceiling and ceiling fan. All secondary bedrooms are en suite, are generously proportioned, and include custom blinds. The pool and patio blend discretely with the tranquil setting of the expanding golf course beyond. An awning with an automatic, retractable sunshade extends the cool shade into the sitting and dining areas. The custom, salt-water pool includes a waterfall feature. Large open fairways are flanked by pine and palmetto bunkers that buffer the home and add privacy while allowing for spectacular sunset views.
