Stately, privately-gated home conveniently located to both Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties and only 15 minutes from Tampa International Airport and 2 major malls. Drive through the private wrought iron gate to the brick paved, circular drive with a beautiful fountain. For the auto enthusiasts there is an attached 3 car garage plus an additional detached 4 garage with a 2/1 guest house above it in addition to the 5 bedrooms in the main house. The garages can easily accommodate a car lift to increase garage space up to 14 cars! Step into the home and you are brought into the 20 ft high foyer flanked with columns and graceful arches which lead to the formal living area. Off to the left is the large formal dining room followed by one of the most beautiful kitchens which is a real show stopper with an enormous cooking island with exotic natural stone countertop, double Wolfe gas cooktops, double oven, 3 dishwashers, ice maker, trash compactor, mini beverage fridge, built-in Miele Coffee Maker and large walk-in pantry. The kitchen opens to the family room with soaring wood paneled ceilings and spacious bar with two wine chillers. Downstairs features two bedrooms including the owner's master suite with a stunning bathroom, his and her closets, and sitting area. Next to the owners suite is an inviting wood paneled office/den/nursery with fireplace and coffered ceilings. All rooms except the guest bedroom open to the stunning lanai and pool area with lots of privacy on this nearly 1 acre homesite. The second floor features 3 more bedrooms (one is currently being used as a game room) and 3 more baths. This home was custom built and the attention to detail must be seen in person with so many upgrades: elevator shaft ready to be built out, laundry shoot, custom hand painted details, separate full pool bath, and much more+++ Truly an incredible value for the size and level of custom luxury finishes.
