Two words, 'SouthernÃ¢‚¬ and 'comfortÃ¢‚¬ may best describe this estate home on 4.54 acres. Create a place where tradition can endure surrounded by pure nature with a lake, barn, separate garage and carriage house, and a principal Three-bedroom residence. A gated entry brings you to an allee of oak trees where Spanish moss sways in the gentle breeze and lead you to a country-style home, complete with gabled roof and welcoming porch. The interiors continue the rustic aesthetic where you'll discover a big kitchen, casual living areas, and plenty of room for the family to spread out. Wood floors and finishes, tray ceilings, and muted colors create warm spaces of cozy elegance. The master suite is poised to look out over the serene lake and grounds with romantic views that layer water, with trees and sky. The master bath is equally luxurious with a jetted, heated soaking tub, arched window, walk-in-shower, and spacious vanities. Step out onto the lakefront lanai to breathe in the smell of freshly-cut grass or view the nighttime stars in the sky. Spend a lazy afternoon on the pool terrace where loved ones can play in the pool while you grill the perfect hamburger. A barn provides the perfect home for your workshop and additional vehicles. Bradenton has been named 'The Friendly CityÃ¢‚¬ and offers an array of recreation, from sports, to arts and culture, boating, and gorgeous white-sand beaches. Near I-75, it's an easy drive to Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, St. Petersburg, Tampa, or Orlando.
