SECLUDED NATURE-LOVER’S PARADISE ON 5 WOODED ACRES! A world away, but just minutes from town, is your corner of wild Florida where mother nature is still the star attraction. Breathe fresh, clean air filtered by your own forest of wetland woods. Savor your solitude and the sounds of birds and breezes in the trees. You’ll love the freedom of little to mow, yet much to behold. Nestled on Big Creek among oaks, cypress, pine and laurel, this custom 3 bedroom, 2 bath home will captivate you. Built with every detail tuned to comfortable living in elegant simplicity, this spacious home is packed with thoughtful amenities for a happy life. Features include a massive screen porch with summer kitchen and vaulted knotty pine ceiling, an outdoor shower and a 5’ fenced back yard. Windows abound for views of nature and occasional wildlife, including deer, turkeys, cranes, owls and the rare bobcat or coyote. The roomy master suite has a volume ceiling, double walk-in closets, double bath vanity, walk-in shower and a 6-ft whirlpool bath with a picture window view. Easy access to the hallway linen closet is cleverly planned through a pass-through cabinet at the end of the vanity. Laundry is a cinch in the spacious laundry room located adjacent to the bedrooms, with a double utility sink, bamboo clothes-folding shelf, closet with hanging racks, and handy exterior door. The open-plan living area has vaulted ceilings, formal dining area, full masonry fireplace built of Wisconsin ruble stone and Tennessee granite hearthstone, plus carpentry trim with art deco touches. French doors continue the flow, opening from the foyer into an office/den. The floor-to-ceiling bay window in the kitchen breakfast nook brings a peaceful feeling whether cooking or relaxing. Bedrooms are big, and there is plenty of closet space throughout the home. You’ll enjoy space for projects in the insulated oversized garage with built-in work bench. A big chicken coop is just the spot to bring your chickens or start a flock for your eggs. At your private escape, you are also part of something much bigger, being situated in the environmentally significant Green Swamp area, an essential contributor to the Floridan aquifer. Big Creek flows across the land, northward through Lake Louisa State Park, and enters the Clermont Chain of Lakes, eventually joining the St. John’s River and the Atlantic Ocean near Jacksonville. Relish sunrises in your back yard, or sunsets out front. If you’ve longed for a little slice of heaven where you’re situated away from it all, this is your place! Seller’s note: Built in the "mauve era" of 1987, this home has many greige and mauve color tones. Purists may enjoy it, while others may wish to update. The custom European kitchen cabinets are fully functional, but have wear and tear. The mauve carpeting has been removed from the master suite, with concrete floors ready for new owners to cover as they wish. Vinyl floor in the laundry also needs replacement. The water heater is propane gas, and the stove is currently electric, with piping in place for a gas stove. Propane service was turned off when the home was vacated. A new well is being drilled and will be finished prior to closing; there is no running water at the moment. Come take a tour today and check out this home with nature.
