Blue skies, fresh air, and wide-open spaces are a few natural benefits to this fantastic custom-built home, offering a lifestyle filled with the simple pleasures of country living in the Avon Park Lakes Community. Set on over 10 acres, this sprawling property offers a place to explore nature right from your backyard; saddle up a horse from the massive 10-stall barn, paddle on the private pond, or take the ATVs and dirt bikes for a spin. Designed with lasting quality in mind, the 3,635 s.f. main house with a 3-car garage is constructed of double insulated styrofoam blocks reinforced with concrete, with added insulation that keeps energy bills low. Interior spaces are bright & airy, with the living room offering soaring ceilings, a warming fireplace, and French doors that open to a covered porch looking out on green pastures. The kitchen has 2 bar seating areas that invite gatherings with good company, and luxury finishes that include dovetailed Kraft Maid cabinets, solid surface counters, Stainless Steel appliances, and an oversized pantry. The flowing floor plan extends to a relaxing den and a formal dining room that both feature gorgeous tray ceilings. Wide-open views of nature create a stunning master bedroom, with an ensuite offering a deep soaking tub, separate shower & walk-in closet. Three additional bedrooms have new carpeting, and a bonus room makes a great office, game room, or 5th bedroom. Main house upgrades include hurricane-rated windows, whole-house audio & communication system, built-in central vacuum, built-in clean-burning propane generator that turns on within seconds of losing electricity, & a high-end metal shake roof. The fully fenced acreage dotted with oaks & pine trees is a rural paradise with room to roam. A 6-person Artesian Jacuzzi relaxes cares away, the pond with an idyllic dock is a place to make memories, and a 1,750 s.f. steel outbuilding is the ultimate man cave, with a huge workbench, loft, and plenty of room to store machinery or toys that entertain those of all ages. An impressive 10,000 s.f. barn & covered riding arena are fully upgraded, with: 10 concrete stalls with water, fans and rubber mats, insulated feed and tack rooms with AC, a 3,000 s.f. loft with a trap door for dropping hay, a 27’ tall, covered riding arena, and commercial LED lights in the loft and arena for evening rides. The overall exterior upgrades to this property are extensive: an automatic entry gate, chicken coop, greenhouse, solar panels, and 2 large sprinkler systems that keep the St. Augustine grass growing all year long. Conveniently located just 10 minutes from town, and just blocks from Lake Olivia, a community lake, that brings neighbors together with winding trails, fishing, and water sports.
