Description

On one and a third acres are two homes on a series of spring fed bass lakes in an area of generous sized homesites. For many reasons, location, location, location is a great descriptor. Rural in feeling, you'll relax on the dock or pool deck, swim in the screened and shaded pool, observe, paint, or photograph the lake rippled or like a mirror and birds wading, soaring, and swimming, and turtles, otters and other wildlife. Agricultural residential zoning means you can even have a horse. While gardening, fishing, canoeing, motoring, kayaking, or resting in comfort, you'll be surrounded by a mix of Florida woodlands, fruit trees, and tropical vegetation, while very nearby are shopping, restaurants, and other conveniences, the Veterans Expressway, mile square Lake Park for horseback riding, biking, hiking, and with miniature race car tracks and many events, and the highly rated Steinbrenner High School and St. Josephs Hospital North. School buses have always stopped at the long driveway. And you'll be only a half hour's country drive to the quaint Greek sponge diving and fishing community of Tarpon Springs and its interesting shops and restaurants, boating experiences, and Gulf beaches. The two homes, solidly built in the past and well maintained, are the 3/2, (approx. 2000 sq feet heated and air conditioned space) and 1/1 (approx. 1,000 sq ft also with central heat and air ) connected by a screened and roofed patio for its good sized and deepwater pool, capable of being heated up to 90 degrees from its rooftop solar hot water panels. Both fenced and separately metered houses, cross ventilated and with ceiling fans throughout, have additional generous sized porches overlooking 145 feet of cypress tree rimmed lake frontage with dock. Canal passages join it to larger and smaller lakes and waterways all privately accessed by property owners. There are two outside storage and workshop buildings. Designs are available for adding a master bedroom bath and a garage. Ask your realtor. Established trees include long bearded oaks, pines, cypress, sea grape, pecans, bananas, avocado, jack fruit, lychee, assorted citrus, and a thick bank of ginger, all organically grown. Within the past 4 years both homes have received updated roofs, their high efficiency central air and heating systems upgraded, 29 LG solar panels that more panels and batteries can be added to, with an app to see now how much rooftop electricity you are producing, and more "smart home" apps to control from near and afar the temperature, lights and security systems in the houses. The pool's solar hot water system was newly installed and the pool was recently refinished and pavers added. The larger 3/2 home has high ceilings, broad sun shading overhangs, a 14 foot high fireplace, and 14 x 30 Florida room. The guesthouse with tile and new laminate flooring features a 20 x 30 great room with modern kitchen, and has a bedroom and full bath, generous sized closets large laundry room, and porch. It can also be for extended family, an office, game room, and vacation rental. Both homes have e-windows and tough see-through hurricane panels. Important today, the property sits 66 feet above sea level, has long established neighbors, and the homes are not in a flood zone.
