Privacy, tranquility and quality are what come to mind as you enter the gates of this magnificent 5-acre Caloosa estate. The winding Chicago brick driveway leads you to this lushly landscaped 5 bedroom, 5 and 2 half bath home that was originally a builder's own, and reflected in both the finishes and construction. Each room is filled with handcrafted detail, from high, coffered ceilings in public areas, to custom cabinetry and built-ins throughout. The thick walls of the ''Man Cave'' ensures a quiet setting, complete with a full bar, state-of-the-art sound system and large screen TV. The 1,200 square foot, first floor Master Suite retreat has custom window treatments, private access to the pool and gardens, and two large closets loaded with built in storage. Natural light pours int the master bath courtesy of the arched windows and the elegant built-ins offer plenty of storage. The formal dining room has coffered ceilings, built-in wine storage and a hand painted custom mural that brings the outside in. The chef's kitchen has a large island, two SubZero refrigerator/freezer with drawers, a Thermador range and new microwave and dishwasher. Carved cabinetry lends a traditional, yet timeless note. Adjacent to the kitchen is a generously sized family room and breakfast area. Upstairs, one en-suite guest room has a spacious balcony that overlooks the pool and patio, perfect for enjoying sunsets, while another boasts a large balcony that overlooks the gardens in the front of the property. Each of the bedrooms has its own bath, plus large closets with built-ins. An upstairs office that's at the heart of the home, has its own bath, built-in shelving, plenty of natural light and hand-scraped pine plank floors. The four extra-deep garages with tiled floors, allow plenty of space for large vehicles and more. One pair of garages is double height with storage that continues to the ceiling, air-conditioned and could serve as a second man cave or office. The whole-house generator ensures a constant power supply, regardless of the weather. There also is a state-of-the-art security system, complete with video monitors. New gates and fences further enhance security. The home has two wells, including a reverse-osmosis system and water softeners. A 400-gallon water tank is tucked behind the garages. Quiet, efficient air conditioners have been recently updated. Outside, the Chicago brick patios offer room for relaxing. The recently resurfaced 30-foot pool and nearby hot tub provide opportunities to let cares vanish as one savors the privacy of the old Florida setting.
