Moor your yacht and enjoy the ultimate Florida living experience in the $3.1 million estate on the Intracoastal Waterway.
Located on the highly coveted 300 block of prestigious John Anderson Drive in Ormond Beach and covered by a beautiful decorative white metal roof that was replaced 2019, this beauty boasts nearly 5,000 square feet of living space that holds five bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, in addition to the three-car attached side-entry garage with newer hurricane garage doors.
A beautiful oak sits in the middle of the circular driveway, offering a shady welcome to this custom-designed property that started with an original home on the south side, built in 1963.
A large, covered patio, featuring beautiful real-brick flooring with concrete columns matching the home’s front columns, is the ideal introduction to this sprawling waterfront home.
“As soon as you enter the large foyer, you’re treated to views of the Intracoastal,” said Realtor Karen Maresco, adding that the next step puts you in a lovely sitting room, which opens to “the massive great room with walls of glass French doors looking out to the river.”
The first floor holds four of the bedrooms, including three that have French doors with plantation shutters overlooking the salt-water pool (with newer pump), the Intracoastal Waterway and the beautiful long dock that was rebuilt in 2018 with a boat house.
The kitchen is open and spacious, with custom wood cabinets, granite and Corian countertops, Dacor double ovens, a Dacor five-burner cooktop and a new large Café fridge. There’s also a breakfast bar with room for up to six diners, a separate coffee bar area with loads of extra cabinets and drawer pull-outs, two pantries for ample storage and an additional solid-surface area for food prepping, baking and entertaining.
“It’s a cook’s dream, especially if you love to entertain,” said Maresco, of Adams, Cameron & Co. Realtors. She continued to describe the interior, including the beautiful tongue-and-groove cathedral ceilings and centerpiece fireplace that make the living room an ideal spot to curl up with a good book and another large room off the garage that would be a great office.
There’s also an inside laundry room and a spacious primary suite, featuring a walk-in shower, a jetted tub, two water closets separated by double sinks and built-in cabinetry, a makeup area and two walk-in closets with custom shelving.
Finishing off the first floor is a massive dining room with “what appears to be the original hardwood flooring from 1963.’’ Maresco said. “The woodwork is amazing and something we just don’t see anymore.’’
The upstairs holds the fifth bedroom/bonus room, with tons of storage and closets and full bath.
“Welcome to living your best life,” exclaimed Maresco. “From the outside in, this Intracoastal beauty can’t be beat.”
