Wouldn’t you enjoy your own private oasis with a beautiful and natural Florida setting! Consider the life altering possibilities as you live the great southern lifestyle in this waterfront home. The home says welcome with its wrap around veranda that the sellers enjoy all year round and magnificent views of the bayou and creek. The home is a rare jewel situated on a point that offers a total of 318 feet on the water and has 132 feet on Alaqua Bayou and 185 feet on the canal – offering this home tranquility and privacy. The sellers say their favorite time is just before sunset when the bayou turns to pink/purple as the sun sets. They also enjoy the nights with a full moon while relaxing on their front porch swing where the entire bayou is aglow. Wildlife is abundant everywhere! During most months, the bayou comes alive with mullet jumping and blue crab searching for their next meal. The family has enjoyed many days casting for mullet and sometimes catches more than anyone could possibly eat in one meal. Water depth in the bayou is up to 11 feet and the owners have added the convenience of a cleaning station right on the dock. The Osprey nest across the bayou is fun to watch as the bird fishes for food or just soars across the bayou. The owners have enjoyed watching the deer, an otter, numerous purple martins, and even an eagle! The property has a beach area that you could peacefully enjoy or use to access the water to view the dolphins as they frolic, jump and spray water. As you enter this home, you are welcomed with an open floor plan that is light and bright offering a tranquil lifestyle with its expansive views from the living room, dining room and kitchen. The master suite is large enough for a sitting area. In 2009, the owners made several upgrades to the home that include updated bathrooms, a new kitchen accented with stainless style appliances, a large breakfast bar, and plant shelves to display favorite treasures. In 2010, the owners added an improved parking area with new pavers, ceiling fans and lights except in the guest room, new flooring throughout the home except in the loft area, and finally, an updated sprinkler system for watering the new Zoysia lawn. In 2011, a 50-amp outside power plug was installed for a RV. In 2012, several upgrades were also completed including additional insulation under the home, an extended dock on the canal-side of the property, porch fans, and a water- pump air tank for the well system, metal hurricane shutters, and a security system (ADT). Enjoy the bayou breezes from your open decks for just your own leisure day of a cappuccino and a good book or for those July 4th parties or family gatherings. Skiing, fishing, crabbing, floundering, bird watching or wherever your imagination takes you, this is truly a piece of paradise. There is even a workshop to complete all those honey-do lists. Another exceptional feature to this home is the 22′ X 13′ upstairs room that would be perfect as a bonus room, a study area, a gym, or a simple “getaway room” for family or friends. Home is complete with termite bond by Bryan pest control. Seller’s present insurance is: Frontline $2600 and National Flood Insurance $518
