100K PRICE REDUCTION!!! NEW ROOF Installed August 2022! Don't miss this opportunity to own a truly magnificent Punta Gorda home. If continual updating, attention to detail & meticulous is what you are seeking, you have found it here. It's not just about the house...the location is also a boater's dream: 10 mins to open water, 90' of seawall (with repairs & replacement planned by City early 2023), a 40' bi-level dock, 100 amp power, & no bridges it can accommodate up to a 75' yacht. What more could you ask? All of this & only 5 minutes to Fisherman's Village & downtown Punta Gorda. As you approach this home you know you are in for a real treat! A convenient circular drive, the lawn (new 2021) & mature landscaping will immediately impress you with a honeybell orange tree, golden coconut palm, banana plants, & many decorative palms all manicured to perfection. As you enter look left at the entry & see the unique "fountain area." Just a hint of the many great details you will find throughout this home. Open the double hurricane rated doors & you will be struck by the Brazilian cherry wood floors & architectural detail of this home. To the left, through the arched entryway is the living room. Look through the window, you will see the fountain from here as well. While in the dining room note the magnificent detail work in the lighted, hand painted (by local artist Diane Kohl) tray ceiling, wainscoting, and the view on to the pool/ lanai. Pause and look at the wall sconces. Notice the “shadow casted” painting on the wall also by Diane. You will be pleased to find her art work throughout the home. The dinette area and kitchen are open to the spacious great room. The kitchen, as you would expect, has solid wood cabinets, granite counter tops, convection oven, glass cook top, and exhaust fan. While casual dining in the dinette area you also have a great view of the lanai, pool & canal. On to the great room with its limestone and granite wood burning fireplace, large dry bar, and HUGE 220 bottle wine cooler. The openness of the kitchen, dinette, and great room with direct access to the Lanai make this home ideal for entertaining. The guest bedrooms are no less elegant. Both are well sized and share a wonderful pool bath/dual vessel sinks, and a tub/shower combination. One guest bedroom can be used as an office/gym and features a cork floor. Now on to the owner's suite, a true retreat, with the same great detail found throughout the home. Here you also have direct access to the pool/lanai area, an electric fireplace, lighted and faux painted tray ceilings( also by Diane), plantation shutters & more. AND it’s a spacious 13'x18'. The owner's bath boasts of travertine walls & floor, a large walk-in shower (note the rope lighting), dual vanities/vessel sinks, a separate vanity table & tons of storage space. Inside the bath area is a LARGE, well designed walk-in closet. Florida living is all about living outside...and outside you will want to be with the wonderful Lanai and pool...From the cedar ceilings to the travertine deck you feel so comfortable you will never want to leave...except for a dip in the sparkling heated pool. Other features of this home include a whole home water softener, recirculating hot water unit, A/C in the garage and a hidden room with a safe for your valuables or firearms. This home has it all and is truly a work of art. It must be seen to be fully appreciated.
