Did you say boating is your passion? Want to see your boat from your own lanai? Well welcome home, sailor! Literally within 1 mile to sandy beaches, this deep-water canal leads to Palma Sola Bay and then to the Gulf of Mexico, with no restrictive bridges in-between. Yes, this is deep water and both sail and power boats are at home here.. Skip the traffic on the bridges and head straight to the beach. This exquisite, top-level home in the preferred "8" building, shares its floor with only one other resident. Stairs lead to private entrance, as does the elevator. 3 separate patios, each offering a different view and benefit, grace this home. Sip your coffee with the sunrise facing east off the front deck, enjoy views of your boat and Palma Sola Bay all day from your west facing lanai, and end your boating excursions with some grilling off the 3rd patio down by the water (both of these patios provide sunset views). Dock has electrical hook up, water, swim ladder, dock and fish lighting, and both large and small "whips". Boat lifts are now permitted. Boat/trailer can also be stored under cover in your designated garage alcove. This unusually large area has 2 spaces, all set with bike suspension racks, dual kayak holders, 2 large storage closets/workshop, freshwater spigot for cleaning toys, installed security cameras, adjacent 3rd patio. Finally, as experienced boaters know, the closer you are to the mouth of the canal, the better the water circulation; another reason to appreciate this location. Now let's talk about the home! The end unit, top floor provides all sorts of benefits, including: a multitude of skylights and clerestory windows, enhanced privacy, and quiet! Bathed in natural light, ceilings soar above the sparkling gourmet kitchen with shimmering seafoam large subway tile backsplash, fresh stainless-steel appliances, expansive granite countertops, generous storage, pantry, breakfast bar seating, all capped off with a lovely wet bar, integrating dining and entertaining. The family room wall unit conveys, with the TV and pull-out, swivel mounting hardware. Incidentally, all TVs convey! The primary bedroom, with his and hers closets, sliders and view of the canal, and sparkling en-suite bath, features a loft, ideal for a grandkids "hideout", office or hobby room. Let’s not forget, carpeted ATTIC space is accessible right up there (holiday storage boxes perhaps?). Primary bath, as with guest bath, feature skylights embedded in the soaring pinnacle in ceiling. Marble, granite, and high-end cabinets, consistent with the homes finishes, grace both bathrooms. The front guest bedroom has just been refitted with a custom Murphy bed, so this room is highly flexible (Murphey bed conveys). Now let's discuss the community. The recreational facilities shared on both sides of the canal include 2 pools, tennis courts, PICKLE BALL courts and fitness center. The community, just this year, completed a capital investment of over 1 million into the infrastructure of the property including elevators, roofs, skylights, pools. Reserves have been significantly increased as well. These projects are completed and were thoroughly funded, leaving no balance for the buyer, just lots and lots of benefit! Don’t miss this unquestionable value to live with your boat right under you!
