A CANALFRONT, CONTEMPORARY MASTERPIECE IN COVETED JOY BEACH! This incredible home offers stunning canal, wetland, and bay views. Enjoy three levels of spacious decks, including both a rooftop deck accessible via outdoor spiral staircase as well as a ground-level deck which both leads directly to the canal and is rated to handle a hot tub. Each deck has three coats of sealer to last three years. What’s more, the outdoor pool offers 4.5 feet of depth and is only steps from the canal. This pool is the perfect oasis for soaking up both sunshine and the majesty of the natural scenery all around you. Ample outdoor lighting means you can enjoy outdoor activities both night and day. Two huge driveways leading to two garages, both with deck access, provide plenty of parking for both you and your valued guests. The right-side garage offers a car lift, wiring for additional lifts, separate HVAC, and a half bathroom. Moreover, this garage is high enough to hold a boat. Upon entering the home through the entryway, which includes brand new treads, you will ascend a small staircase to find yourself in the light-filled living room. This space provides recessed lighting, hardwood flooring, a porthole window, regal vaulted ceiling, open kitchen access, and tranquil wetland views. Kitchen highlights include white wooded cabinetry, a bar with ample seating room, tile flooring, non-spill counters with beveled-up edges, and stainless-steel appliances (including a subzero freezer, commercial-grade Wolf stove and vent, built-in microwave, dishwasher, and Scotsman ice maker). Off the kitchen is the pantry. A first-floor owner’s suite offers serene wetland views as well as a full en-suite bathroom with a walk-in bathtub, tile walls and floors, and a marble vanity. This suite also includes a fridge and new flooring. Additional first-floor highlights include an osmosis system, water softener system, new HVAC, and hot water heater. The cozy second-floor owner’s suite boasts a mirror closet and an en-suite half bathroom, while the second-floor guest bedroom features mirror closets and a ceiling fan. A second full bathroom includes tile on both the walls and the floors, a marble vanity, and a walk-in shower, while the third full bathroom, accessed from outside by the pool, is temperature controlled (must be winterized) and easily reachable while enjoying the outdoors. Both the exquisite sunroom and the third-floor living room boast panoramic natural views and deck access. Additionally, the third-floor living room, accessible via its own staircase, includes hardwood flooring, a sealed deck, see-through glass railing, and gas fireplace. Further amenities of this marvelous home include an alarm system, brand-new roof with a lifetime warranty, and the possibility for an elevator. Moreover, 90% of the home’s screens have been replaced.
