$479,500    8446 SW 91st Place     Meadows of Kanapaha

This is a 2003 custom pool home with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in popular Meadows of Kanapaha.  For those looking for a luxury, country estate feel yet close, convenient access to the finest shopping, the University of Florida, UF Health Centers, the VA hospital & I-75 THIS is the location and home for you.


Let’s start with the exterior of this 3,280 square foot home.  Set on a corner lot, the sense of space feels much bigger than 1.44 acres.  Set back tastefully from the road and presenting with a brick front and long concrete driveway leading to the 2 car side-entry garage it certainly shows off its upscale yet inviting appeal. 


The back yard is fully fenced and the solar heated, salt-based chemistry pool has a built in hot-tub.  The entire pool area and covered lanai are screened to keep out those pesky bugs during tropical evenings of swimming and entertaining.


Next, we’ll move inside.


Stepping through the leaded glass double front doors into the formal areas of the home you are greeted by high ceilings, high baseboards, crown molding and beautiful wide-plank wood floors.  The feeling is elegant and inviting without being pretentious.


Throughout the home the light-filled interior has a spacious, user friendly layout and offers flexibility, allowing for 4 bedrooms or 3 bedrooms plus an office and the Florida room can multi-task as a recreation space, play room or exercise area.  And there are two wet bars.  One in the family room and another in the Florida room beneath a serving window from the kitchen.  The perfect setup when hosting your soiree.


The central hub of any home is of course the kitchen and this is no ordinary kitchen.  Custom features are found from top to bottom with beautiful wood cabinets topped with crown molding, a walk-in pantry and plenty of seating with both a breakfast bar and dining nook.  And no luxury kitchen would be complete without a full complement of appliances included.  This one features a wall-mount oven and microwave.  The range cooktop is separate and built-into the island’s granite top.


The kitchen is open to the great room.  At this level of luxury, you wouldn’t want your TV and audio system equipment just sitting out in the open with all those ugly wires showing.  So naturally, you have more gorgeous, custom, built-in wood cabinetry and to take off the occasional wintry chill you have a propane fueled fireplace available at the flick of a switch.  No messy logs and ashes for you to deal with.


And what estate would be complete without a large, relaxing master suite?  This huge bedroom can accommodate any furniture ensemble.  There are French doors leading to the Florida room for a quick morning work-out.  When finished, stroll past the his and her walk-in closets to the luxury bath showcasing a jetted tub, large, private walk-in shower and two granite topped vanities each with their own sink.


So if you’re looking for an impressive home that’s not cookie-cutter but rather a cut-above then you owe to yourself to arrange a private tour of this exceptional home priced at:  $490,000.
