An ideal vacation home, this beautiful 4 bedroom 3 bath home comfortably sleeps 12. The upper level features a huge, 27’ x 24’ master suite, and a wet bar with compact refrigerator and large walk-in closet. There is a 16’ x 11’ luxurious master bath with double vanity, Whirlpool tub and separate steam shower. You can also exit the bathroom or bedroom onto the large 2nd level deck, which overlooks the backyard and the nature preserve beyond it. Upstairs bedroom sleeps 4, with Queen-sized bed and futon. Best of all, you can exit your bed/bath onto the deck and enjoy the view from the patio table above, or walk down the spiral staircase to entertain at pool level!
On the main floor are three large bedrooms, 2 have bunk beds (easy to stack or separate), with a bathroom to share on their side of the house. Off the dining room is another large bedroom with a Queen-sized bed and bathroom off it.
There are TVs in the LR, MBR, Guest BR, BR2. All w/premium DirecTV AND MLB/NFL/NHL/NBA packs
Outside: Just coming from the beach? Outside there is a shower, changing room and 8’ x 8’ wooden storage shed on concrete slabs. The fenced-in backyard backs up to a nature preserve for total privacy. The pool is a comfortable 85 degrees. Also aiding the relaxing environment is a fountain in the back corner of the lot.
In front of the house is a large horseshoe-shaped driveway, which easily fits 3 vehicles. There is also a one-car garage.
A short walk away ...: Exit the house to your left (west) and you will be walking on the pristine sands of Indian Rocks Beach. Hail a trolley ($2-$3) and ride north to Clearwater Beach in 10 mins. or down to St. Pete's in 15.
Exit the house straight (north) and within 6 minutes you will be at a state-of-the-art skateboard park, basketball and tennis courts, and baseball field.
Exit to the right (east) and you will be at the cleanest playground you've ever seen, and at the back of it is an entrance to the nature preserve. The preserve is a new path (you're walking on boards with handrails elevated above the ground/water) that winds around the inlet (see Google Earth) and exits next to a dog park (if you brought your 'best friend,' he'll love this park, complete with fire hydrant!).
Amenities: Need your internet? We've got it. Lightning fast connections and WiFi available throughout the house. Also, DirecTV, complete with the NFL Sunday Ticket, Major League Baseball Extra Innings, NHL Center Ice, NASCAR Hot Pass and NBA Season Pass is available on the flat screen TV set in the living room. We also have HBO, Showtime, Starz and Cinemax included. For you folks who want the Cricket Ticket, call me and I'll make that happen, too (I'm a DirecTV dealer!)
We recently purchased two beach cruisers (lots of fun to ride around the neighborhood, on the sidewalks or along the beach), more beach chairs, a 42' plasma TV for the upstairs master bedroom suite, a crib, high chair and a 'dog kennel/playpen.' Don't ask ; )
Of course, there's a dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, and a fully-stocked kitchen with service for 12. Everything from a blender to beaters is included.
The linens are also newer, with high-thread count sheets and comfortable bedding.
Two beach cruisers (a blast to ride on side streets of IRB and on the beach itself), pool toys, a wagon for hauling small children (or stuff) to the beach, board games, and other pleasant surprises await!
Restaurants in IRB: A wide variety of dining can be found in IRB, from quick in-&-out sandwich shops, to casual offerings from places like 'Pajanos Pizzeria', the British Pub-styled 'Red Lion Pub', 'Keegan's' or 'Crabby Bills' to the more upscale 'TJ's', 'Guppy's', and 'Villa Gallache' to name just a few.
Surrounding areas: Nearby are jet-ski rentals, boat rentals, para-sailing, fishing charters, dinner cruises and more can be found a few miles north in Clearwater Beach, or a few miles south at the world-famous John's Pass.
