Inhale…hold…exhale…open your eyes, you have arrived. Can it be? A majestic waterfront oasis, in A-rated Steinbrenner HS District & just a 15 min commute to Tampa Int'l Airport. Opulence, privacy & tranquility are yours the moment you enter through the wrought iron private security gates & make your way down the palm lined private drive & into the circular motor court. Twin mermaids dancing in the raindrops remind you you are home & that regardless of how stressful your day was…beyond this point, family connection & playful leisure prevail. This estate was carefully designed & built to create a seamless marriage between luxury amenities & the pinnacle of Floridian waterscapes. For sale for the first time ever, we bring you this 6500 sf estate perched high on a hand selected 1.4 acre lot w/ views from nearly every room overlooking the 51 acre ski-lake Josephine. Let’s talk details: 6 Bed, 5.5 Bath, 3 car garage & guesthouse. Enter the home through double doors & you’ll be awestruck by the view of the infinity pool & lake through a triple set of glass french doors. This formal living room at the heart of the home is an ideal place for receiving party guests & serving a cocktail at the custom built bar on their way out to the pool deck. Your guests will be captured by the glamorous curved staircase w/ granite steps, marble risers & decorative iron railing ascending to the 2nd floor loft beneath the 21’ ceiling. No expense was spared on the timeless appointments throughout including the striking European crystal chandelier. Toward the west wing, the marble floors carry you past the formal dining room, framed by hand carved wood columns, where you’ll arrive at the main kitchen complete w/ a large L-Shaped island, granite counters, & an oversized seating area that bridges the family room & kitchen as one open, yet cohesive family space. Whether you’re preparing a meal or watching the evening news, panoramic lake views remain intact. Just off the main kitchen is a prep kitchen, the laundry room, & access to the attached three car garage w/ new epoxy floors. On the opposite side of the house is the ever important ground floor Owners Suite w/ tray ceilings & wood-like tile floors in the bedroom & marble floors in the 5-star bathroom which has two large, walk-in closets. The main level also features a Junior Bedroom (presently used as an office) & powder room. Ascend the black granite staircase to the oversize loft which has access to the extended balcony shared by one of the Junior Suites. In addition to the 3 upstairs bedrooms and loft there is a large bonus room attached to one Junior which is not included in the bedroom count but would make for a nice office/workout room/seating area. We’ve saved the best for last…take a step out back & dive right in.
