Built for real families!  That’s the foundation of the Evans Building & Design philosophy.  And it is faithfully embodied in every facet, nuance and detail of this, their personal home with a bright and open layout, high ceilings and all the bells and whistles you’d expect. 

 

There are 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 2 half baths plus an office and bonus/play room and a plethora of well thought out design elements for everyday functionality like Jack-n-Jill baths between the kids rooms, a stop-n-drop alcove as you enter from the garage, a secondary foyer for traffic flow in the kids’ wing, an awesome, custom homework space, and a double door, walk-through butler’s pantry for both easy stocking and kitchen access.  Not your typical laundry room either with custom cabinetry, wash tub, granite counter tops, built-in hampers and gift wrap/craft station.  Even the play room with “chalk-board” paint and game storage closet was no mere afterthought with lines of sight from the kitchen and family room to make it easy to keep eyes on the little ones. 

 

Class, elegance and savoir faire aren’t left behind as your adult guests will be impressed with the finest in finishes, craftsmanship, attention to detail, high-end components, crown molding, hand-scraped wood floors and 2 fireplaces and true copper roofing detail. 

 

The always popular open kitchen design and easy-flow floor plan from formal to casual areas makes for great entertaining.  Whether it’s all the family for Thanksgiving or a feast for friends this functional and elegant kitchen can handle anything with aplomb showcasing Thermador commercial grade appliances, hidden panel refrigerator and dishwasher, propane stove with pot filler, a huge island, gorgeous cabinetry and stunning granite counter tops. 

 

Of course the master suite is spacious and luxurious as you would expect with his-n-her closets, jetted tub and large walk-in shower. 

 

Florida summers are more fun when you have your own resort style pool area.  The large covered lanai with an eye-catching tongue and groove wood ceiling provides shady views of the pool, built-in hot tub and the enormous back yard of this 5.44 acre parcel.  Kids will go bonkers over the built-in, ground level trampoline! 

 

Handle those hungry appetites with the fully equipped summer kitchen featuring grill, sink and refrigerator while your guests relax pool side watching the game on the two included patio TVs. 

 

Out in the 3 car garage don’t miss the walk-up stairway leading to a huge, floored, stand-up attic for loads of storage or easy conversion to a home theater, extra bonus room or in-law suite.  Plumbing access nearby makes adding a bath easy too. 

Comfort and energy efficiency were not after-thoughts as this home showcases Icynene spray foam insulation which improves indoor air quality by sealing out airborne irritants such as dust, humidity and pollen while its insulating characteristics prevent hot/cold attic syndrome helping your heating and cooling systems perform more efficiently.
