Completely custom, Key West style house pleasingly nestled in the lush vegetation of Myakka River Trails (MRT), one of SW Florida's most exclusive estate communities. This home presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to prospective buyers. Majestic pines, tall palms and spreading oak trees replete with bromeliads and other native epiphites immediately signals that “this place is special”. First impressions are lasting impressions and that is certainly true upon eyeing this home from the outside. The handsome metal roof with its conical rise over the study and the large, functional cupola is pleasingly matched by the expansive and inviting front porch. Upon entering, the meticulously-maintained home exudes a sense of comfortable livability. The floor to ceiling limestone (mined from only a mile away) fireplace has an eye-popping pecky-cypress surround and a 12 foot cypress mantel with room galore for all your family photos. The sliding and pocketing 12- foot, glass wall opens to the pool and a clear view of the magnificent hammock of native Sabel palms. The gourmet kitchen features custom-built cherry cabinetry, a wraparound island and high-end appliances. An aquarium window visually opens the breakfast nook to the outside. Centered over the great room and kitchen is the cupola whose remote opening/closing windows provide natural lighting and ventilation to the entire home. A 525sq.ft. out-building currently serves as the owner's woodworking shop. Zoning codes and community covenants would allow for a a range of uses such as an additional two- car garage, a hobby shop, or even a small in-law apartment. All of this exists in the unparalleled setting of MRT. The community, situated along the famed Myakka River, was painstakingly developed by the Taylor family. The community activity area includes a spacious pavilion, a large heated pool and spa, lighted tennis/pickle ball courts, an enormous playground structure and a golfing green. Notwithstanding all these amenities, the developer's main focus was to establish a community that in every possible way would be compatible with the existing flora. Small winding roadways throughout provide outstanding walk-ability and biking. A bridle path even extends that walk-ability to the equine residents! If location, location, location truly matters, MRT has it all. The current rebuild of River Road includes a multi- use path for biking, walking and golf carts. Just across the street lies the expansive Wellen Park which has rapidly become one of the most sought-after destinations in SW Florida. Beaches, parks, schools, shopping and restaurants are only minutes away. With only 60 home sites in MRT, resales in this exclusive community rarely become available.
