This is your opportunity to make it your own. This home and the 3 acres it is situated on has been so meticulously cared for and thoughtfully developed over the years. Namely, the handmade stairs that climb to the top of what is lovingly called "Pirates Peak" that provides over 20 miles of panoramic water views, a screened-in gazebo to decompress from the day by watching the hummingbirds & butterflies dance around, and the firepit area that feels like your very own campsite! Instead of walking up to the front doors you an take a short detour to the left and find a secluded landscaped patio area that is great to just relax or have meals. On quiet summer evenings you can hear the waves against the shore! A two story chandeliered foyer flooded with natural light awaits you at the entrance.Primary Bedroom: 15x20 with a cathedral ceiling, walk-in closet, and sliding glass doors to the upper veranda overlooking the fantastic water views.
