On a welcoming coastal street full of lovingly kept estate homes, one home has a secret. This lake-front home has an amazingly private hidden oasis full of surprises, including butterfly and hummingbird gardens, a small citrus grove, blueberry bushes, and perennials- a coastal botanical garden strategically designed to provide maximum privacy and peace year round. The grounds are lush and gorgeous, but like the home are low maintenance. Under the screened pool enclosure is a heated gunite resistance salt-water pool with jets, sunning shelf, a 3 weir waterfall, and travertine surround. A sprinkler system for the gardens is on well irrigation. The entire private retreat is enclosed in a classic custom powder-coated black aluminum fence and is protected by a whole house gas generator. The home provides plenty of room for large groups in the eat-in kitchen open to the vaulted-ceiling great room, and a spacious master suite with three more bedrooms so everyone can sleep comfortably; but the office and entry welcoming room/dining room is separated from the rest of the home to provide occasional needed privacy. All one-level, this home is close to schools, shopping, the beach, and all the Coast has to offer. This home has a secret; it is a surprising coastal paradise like no other.
