Welcome to lakefront living! Set high off the road, away from all other neighbors, this private property in Lake Placid is surrounded by a thick hedge fence made of podocarpus, accentuated with stucco posts with carriage lights. This fence adds privacy to the yard yet draws attention to it when welcoming guests. A curving driveway leads through an opening of the hedge to the side-entry attached two-car garage, which does not interrupt the curb appeal; this garage includes two electric openers, windows, an attic and a service door. A plant bed of perennials, foliage and a stone border forms a retaining wall in front, and the tiled, covered portico offers a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. With so much exterior appeal, it's hard to believe this home could be even better inside, but that's just what it is! This residence is only five years new and loaded with upgrades & custom elements! Inside, expressive paint colors define the separate spaces within the open floor plan. The front door leads to the spacious foyer, which is filled with ceramic tiling and showcases a direct view to the lake. Straight ahead of the foyer is the dining room with a five-light chandelier, a cathedral ceiling and sliding doors to the family room. It adjoins with the living room, which is filled with plush carpet with extra-thick padding, a full bank of windows, a niche for extra decor and a ceiling fan. A pocket door separates the spare bedroom hall for privacy. Through the dining room, enter the extraordinary, very large kitchen. Filled with ceramic tiling, the kitchen boasts granite countertops and custom wood cabinetry with raised panels. Further highlights include two black porcelain sinks, an oven, a stainless steel refrigerator, a dishwasher, a microwave and a Jenn-Air cook-top!
As stylish as it is efficient, a custom kitchen booth boasts leather seating, a granite tabletop, a Tiffany-style hanging light and a window to the family room. Sliding doors lead to the family room that boasts ceramic tile and sliding doors to the lanai on one side, carpeting and a ceiling fan on the other and windows throughout. All of the carpeted bedrooms include lighted ceiling fans. The huge master suite features a walk-in closet and views of the lake. The private, tiled bathroom comes with a high double vanity with two sinks, a huge step-in shower with an ice-block window, a jetted whirlpool with armrests, a private water closet and a linen closet. Each spare bedroom includes a double closet with mirrored doors, and the spare bath boasts a granite countertop and hardwood cabinetry on the vanity, a glass-enclosed shower/tub and ceramic tiling. Around back, the incredible yard slopes right down to the serene lake that is the yard's backdrop. A massive covered/screened lanai with an auto-cleaning inground pool is a recent addition, designed to capitalize on this impressive setting! The lanai provides a high-peaked roof with good air flow and five inches of foam insulation between the layers of the roof metal, so this space is enjoyable year-round! Soak up sunshine from the sparkling pool, surrounded by patio space. There's also a large covered area with room for a table. The lush backyard boasts a citrus tree and an olive bush, with ornamental grasses lining the outside of the lanai and a fragrant gardenia bush providing fabulous aromas throughout the area. From beginning to end, this Lake Placid property is an incredible value! Call now to schedule your private showing, and see for yourself!
