This is an elegant 2 story 4200 square ft home custom designed and built in 2002 with beautiful wood flooring and detailed woodwork throughout. The home features a spacious family room that is open all the way to the top. The large kitchen has granite counter tops with custom wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances and bay windows overlooking the heated pool and jacuzzi. There is also a pool room and a very large game room. Outside is an acre lot with huge fenced yard, a basketball hoop, large pine and palm tress and lush landscaping. You can relax in the sun on the front or back porch or by the pool. The street ends in a cul de sac and is very quiet. One can hear the sounds of the birds, and although downtown is very close, the street is very quiet and peaceful.
I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and I have now been in Florida for 30 years. I custom built this home in 2002 and it is my pride and joy. I have thoroughly enjoyed raising my precious boy girl twins in this charming estate home. I really enjoy being so close to the beaches and downtown Del ray and Lake Ida.
I lived in a home across the street from this property for 8 years. This property was a vacant heavily wooded lot at that time. The house I was living in was getting older, and there were many changes I wanted to make. So, instead I called the owner of the vacant lot and managed to talk him into selling. I was then able to have everything new and built exactly the way I wanted. I have now lived here for a wonderful 10 years.
The interior design and the intricate woodwork is part of what made me fall in love with this home. Also, the beautiful views of the pool and lush landscaping and large trees out of the numerous windows are very enjoyable. The large 1.15 acre lot on the quiet street is also very special.
