What you may not expect is the large addition added in the rear of the home which almost doubled the square footage.  A large family room with fireplace, French doors and custom built-in shelves were added downstairs as well as a very large master suite upstairs with 2 walk in closets and a large master bathroom.  The Fantastic screened lanai is fantastic and a wonderful place to entertain and it overlooks the heated custom pool.  The extra large back yard is completely fenced and has a sizable workshop/storage area, as well as a charming gazebo.  There is also a wonderful upstairs  porch with a huge bonus deck outside. Also included is a very spacious downstairs office. 2 of the bathrooms are original.  The brick façade, the gardens and winding walkways make this a true retreat.  Gorgeous mature trees surround the property.  Window air conditioners and wall units are currently used to cool the home.
