One or more photo(s) has been virtually staged. Idyllically poised at the mouth of the Manatee River, savor the natural beauty and spectacular water views from this freshly remastered, well-built home. In a distinct league, this elegant Cape Cod styled manor was rebuilt in 2022 by Gagne Construction. Situated on over an acre of premium waterfront with 169 feet of direct water footage, this is a “smart house” and has over 6200 square feet of luxury living. Dramatic entry through imported, wrought iron clad doors imported from Mexico invite you into a large foyer with winding staircase and immediate Manatee River views. Details include hardwood Mohawk flooring on the lower level, extraordinary coffered ceilings, crown molding, custom Campbell soft-close cabinetry, and solid surface counters throughout. Massive downstairs living space, plus formal dining room and kitchen have impressive caisson ceilings. Ideal for entertaining, the gourmet kitchen showcases a vast quartz island and quartz counters. Featuring chef-grade GE Monogram premium stainless steel appliances, the range has six burners and a griddle, and there are double ovens including a French door oven. Off the kitchen is a convenient Butler’s Pantry which includes an additional oven for a total of three ovens. Adjacent to the foyer is a private, relaxing den with wet bar, built-ins, and two mini refrigerators. The climate controlled, oversized double garages (space for 4 vehicles) have mini-splits for comfort. As you move to the second level of the home, to the right you’ll find two large guest bedrooms with water views and walk-in closets. The guest bedrooms share a beautifully updated Jack n Jill bath with under cabinet lighting and quartz flooring. On the other side of the 2nd level hallway is a large laundry room with premium appliances and a thoughtfully placed window overlooking the river. There is a large bedroom at the far west portion of the house (with a fireplace) that would make a grand master suite as a 4th bedroom and there is an adjoining bedroom to that master suite which could be the 3rd bedroom on the second floor. This home includes an elevator shaft so an elevator could be added if desired. Across the entire length of the second level is a balcony with cypress ceilings, stone flooring, and water views. Offering a resort-style outdoor experience, discover the large lanai highlighting a gorgeous, heated infinity pool, two gas fire balls, cypress ceilings, and travertine flooring. There is a dock with cover to match the house and a 14,000 lb lift which currently holds a 30’ Chris Craft. A detached, brick cabana/guest house with snowy washed exterior complements the main house and provides privacy and space for guests as a 5th bedroom. Views from the rear of this home include Florida’s famous Sunshine Skyway, which is beautifully lit at night. IMG Academy and the private K-12 school, St Stephens Episcopal School are just minutes away as well as all conveniences and Gulf of Mexico beaches. Please see the attached feature sheet for the many distinctive upgrades and features
