Standing on the crest at the end of a private cul-de-sac in the small, exclusive gated Waterford Court community, is this custom Executive Waterfront Home. On over ½ acre and 200 feet of protected water frontage with access to Tampa Bay & the Gulf of Mexico, this home is completely surrounded by mature Florida-friendly landscaping. Through double front doors, the spectacular entry opens into a grand foyer with soaring ceilings, formal living, and dining rooms. A stately home office, powder room and coat closet with hidden under stair storage, complete the front section of the first floor. Proceeding to the rear you will find the heart of the home. The open sunny family room with warm wood floors, a wall of glass French doors & a cozy gas fireplace flows out to the pool deck. Behind the family room is a game room with full pool bath. It could be a 5th bedroom or live-in quarters for an au pair. A large home theatre, with tiered flooring, is right behind the kitchen. The 5,533 sq ft floor plan is thoughtfully designed, the perfect combination of spaces - formal and relaxed, social and private. The Gourmet Kitchen is a fully appointed cook's dream featuring top of the line appliances, a Thermador 6-burner gas cooktop, GE Monogram built-in refrigerator, Double ovens, warming drawer, Wine cooler, custom cabinetry, abundant prep areas and a breakfast/homework bar. The sunny breakfast nook is the perfect spot for casual family meals. Panoramic views from the family room/kitchen areas overlook the wooded back yard with swaying Australian pines and mangroves beyond the pool deck. Equally attentive to the outdoor Florida lifestyle is the screened lanai soaring over 25 ft above the totally private resort style pool and heated waterfall spa. It is the focal point of this beautifully landscaped space. A fabulous outdoor kitchen makes entertaining easy. Nestled in mature landscaping is an inviting fenced-in backyard that family and pets will enjoy. A paver walkway leads out to the dock. Keep your eyes open for Manatees, Snook and Mullet hiding in the shade of the dock. Back inside at the top of the elegant stairway, you'll find the spacious master bedroom suite, 3 more bedrooms and 2 more full baths. The master suite is a luxurious haven with over 1200 sq ft. It has a warm cozy fireplace, sitting area and large private 2nd story balcony overlooking the pool with direct pool access via a spiral staircase. An equally spectacular master bath features a beautifully contoured free standing soaking tub, 2 head shower, private water closet, dual vanities and a walk-in closet. Beyond the bath is a sizable bonus room perfect for a nursery, exercise room, craft room or another home office. Custom Plantation shutters, exquisite millwork and built-in custom cabinetry adorn this home. Even every-day features, such as the laundry room, epoxy coated 3 car garage floor and a pull-down stairway to a floored attic are spectacular. This home has been lovingly & immaculately maintained. No mechanical worries, the AC, water heating & water softener systems were recently replaced. Conveniently located just a bike ride away from vibrant downtown St Pete's waterfront with endless dining, shopping, world class museums and events, and just a short drive to white sugar sand beaches and Tampa International Airport.
