Wow doesn’t begin to describe this magnificent, meticulously landscaped botanical paradise! This property has undergone EXTENSIVE renovations over the last 2 years and there is a big red book you’ll want to peruse that will be on the counter when you visit this masterpiece that contains EVERYTHING that’s been done to this property. Where do I start? First, the botanical paradise is surrounded by over 700 feet of hedges and will blow you away. The fruit trees in the rear produce bananas, oranges, tangerines, limes, and loquats along with over 30 palm trees. When the Crepe Myrtle trees bloom with the white flowers on one and the pink flowers on the other, it creates a wonderful ambiance that makes being in the backyard a joy, and once the 83 azalea plants bloom, the explosion of color is almost deafening! The property is irrigated by an 800-900 foot deep well that taps into Georgia sweet water so NO WATER BILL FOR THE IRRIGATION, and the irrigation timing system is only 1 year old. Solar lights line the walkways in the back help you see where you’re going on your way to the firepit in the evening. Words can’t really describe it; you must see the superb landscaping job that has been done to your new paradise. It has been serviced by the same lawn service for over 15 years, so they know what the property needs to keep it looking magnificent. And we haven’t even stepped foot inside yet! You enter the house through a quaint front patio behind an iron gate with a cozy table and ceiling fan and light that are remote controlled. Walking through the double front doors, you’re greeted with a huge 8-foot circular mirror and a skylight to let the natural light in. You immediately notice the brand-new laminate flooring that covers the entire house with 1 ½ boxes of extra planks if replacement is needed. The living room has a large, wood burning stone fireplace that has never been used so it’s like new! The roof was ½ replaced in 2011, half in 2016, and the trusses near the fireplace were recently replaced. Walking past the built-in hutch in the dining room with upper and lower lights, you’ll instantly fall in love with your brand new completely renovated kitchen with all new walls, new quartz countertops, 3 lazy Susan’s, above and below color changing cabinet lighting, new wiring, dimmer lights, new appliances that are under warranty until November 2022, new soft close custom-built cabinets, a Farmhouse sink and chef’s faucets, and wait until you see the retractable ceiling fan! The bathrooms have new oversized toilets, 4 new sinks and 4 new faucets. There are 3 air returns helping the 1-year-old new HVAC system with new thermostat work efficiently, and the upgraded lighting throughout the house including recessed lighting create a delightful environment. All new smoke detectors and carbon Monoxide detectors have 10-year warranties on them. There is a brand-new electric panel and all the ceiling fans throughout the house have lights. There is a new hurricane proof garage door with a 20-year warranty and entry door into the garage, new keypad, the brand-new water heater was installed 11/16/21 and brand new 375 Lb. weight bearing stairs lead you to the attic with plenty of storage. I could go on and on but just look at the red book when you’re there and that will fill in anything I’ve missed. This exceptional property will not last long! Don’t miss your chance to see what living in your own botanical paradise might look like! Book your showing today!
