When you only want the best of everything! This 55+ community home has so many upgrades, you will just love it. Start w/ the great community of Spring Arbor, with it's marvelous clubhouse, pool, & active life style. Then come to this stone accented home with decorative metal roofs. The covered entry invites you into the spacious and gracious grand foyer, with hardwood floors, coffered ceiling and 3-piece crown Moldings (that grace many rooms in this fine home). Enter the over-sized Dining room and you know that you can continue to host wonderful holiday dinners at your place (if you want to). The Large Family rm, overlooks the massive Trex back deck, & gives you a stunning view of the open space & pond behind the home (What a prime location! - there's even an open space to the side!) The kitchen is a chef's dream, w/ hand carved hard wood floors, abundant White raised panel cabinets with Crown Molding. Lustrous Granite Counter tops (also on the 2 deep window sills & the ledge on the 1/2 wall between the eating area & open Family room), the SS appliances are all top of the line, with a refrigerator that I personally covet, Double wall ovens (one Convection), Commercial style gas cooktop, And silent dishwasher. The eating area of the kitchen opens to the vaulted Sun Room with more views of the open space, and the wild life and birds that visit the pond. Enter the back deck and you have 30' X 16' of Trex decking with vinyl safety rail, featuring solar post caps, and ample outlets for your electronic needs. The Hot Tub is bubbling and waiting for you to relax, and enjoy the beauty created by your lawn sprinkler system. There are 3 - 4 bedrooms in this home. The owners' suite is sumptuous, with large coffered ceiling, and top of the line thick plush carpeting. The owner bath is Spectacular. From the Furniture grade, comfort height, double vanity, to the over-sized Roman Shower surround with gorgeous tile (reflecting the tile on the floor), Clear Glass enclosure, a seat, marble shelving and double shower heads - It's dazzling. There's a bright separate Bedroom at the front of the home, lit by the massive bay window, & the bath for that bedroom is upgraded with beautiful tile as well. The Office on the main floor, has a closet right outside the door, so could easily be a 4th bedroom. In the upper level hosts a massive bedroom. Another Full bath & large loft are finished in this area. And there's a well-insulated Storage space. Don’t miss the 2 car garage with epoxy floor, double insulated garage door, massive amounts of storage cabinets, and mobile heater. This home is truly a dream come true.
