Enter the private drive to gaze up at the stunning picture of columned elegance, the front of this prestigious Belleair Bluffs estate on highly desirable Bluff View Drive. Picture yourself savoring your morning coffee on the spacious front porch made of slate and stone, enjoying the sea breeze and peaceful privacy of nearly an acre. Come inside and the captivating 26ft limestone fireplace mantle of the fireplace makes quite the impression, drawing your attention into the two-story living room with soaring, coffered ceilings. Meticulously updated with 2016 and newer touches throughout. Natural lighting complemented by unique fixtures brightens the home, where the thoughtful floor plan makes entertaining a breeze. A granite open kitchen features a breakfast nook, gray cabinetry and stainless appliances, plus two large pantry closets. A formal dining room is tucked around the corner. Beyond the kitchen step into the spacious cabana style media/living room, with herringbone lay tile and exposed wood beams in the ceiling, windows overlooking the pool. Convenient-while-still-secluded access to the second level office or bonus living space is adjacent to the 2.5 car garage with room for a golf cart, perfect to whisk you to the beach or boat ramp just minutes away. Climbing ivy vines in the courtyard are reminiscent of a mediteranean patio, the concrete fence surrounding a refreshing 40ft pool. Circling back inside, your master retreat is complete with large windows, incredible storage and a beautifully renovated marble en-suite bathroom with soaking tub and glass framed shower. From the first floor, just outside the master suite is access to the nearby elevator and den. Additional (potential master) bedrooms upstairs include two large guest suites with en-suite baths; plus two bedrooms sharing a Jack/Jill bathroom, both with access to the second level balcony, offering even more outdoor living space where you can relax and take in the glow of daily sunsets and peeks of the intracoastal waterway. Additional perks include copper-trimmed custom shingles, 2 newer HVAC systems, 2020 well irrigation with well-house, a front portico and long extended drive leading to the firepit patio and rear access garage, plus solid block construction on both levels, including concrete between floors. Despite the proximity to the water, this home is not in a flood zone. Located just a short drive to award winning Gulf coast beaches and a plethora of delicious local restaurants, this immaculate home will surprise you around every corner.
