Upon entering 2 front gates with brick drives that are wide for parking; the front yard is breathtaking with its formal garden to the Bayshore with sweeping views of downtown and open bay. This property is 5 bedrooms, 4 full and a 1/2 bath with a 4 car garage. It is built on an oversized lot as they closed the alley on their portion of the block adding more land square feet than the other houses on that block.

Starting with the two story spiral staircase entry which opens to the living and dining room and through the family room to the back arched French doors on to a Grecian pool, patio and Jacuzzi. The family room opens to a huge gourmet kitchen with plenty of eat in space overlooking the pool. It also has many extra cabinets and manager’s work desk.

Although there are double master bedrooms and baths downstairs and an office or library – the remaining bedrooms are upstairs with their own private bath and 2 with Jack & Jills. If one did not need all upstairs rooms one is huge enough for media room and gym. There are off the off the upstairs and downstairs that are wide enough to sit and enjoy the views of downtown and the open bay. The wide back covered terrace and outdoor living room have an outdoor kitchen.. The powder room ½ bath is an enchanted garden. The terracing step down is very Grecian in feel – steps cascade down to the Jacuzzi, then a fountain and flowers. And then a long wide pool with patio all around for entertaining. 2 garages (4 cars).
