Serenity awaits at this magnificent French country estate home set on over seven acres in Golden Valley, an exclusive gated enclave of only seven homes. Effectively two homes in one, the original 4,000 square foot custom primary residence was built in 2002 with a 2,000 square foot adjoining home added in 2007, adjacent and connected yet completely independent. The latter serves either as a splendid guesthouse or luxurious in law residence. The quality of design and construction is evident throughout, with many interesting architectural flourishes including wide arches framed by Doric columns, soaring ceilings, crown molding, custom cabinetry and gleaming hardwood floors. The kitchen is a chefs delight. Double doors open to the foyer and to the living and dining rooms. There are six bedrooms in all, including an exquisite master suite with palatial bath, a very large bedroom suite that would equally serve as a game or media room; a separate study and a huge bonus room currently used for crafts. The enormous screened in lanai with outdoor kitchen leads to the multi level deck, waterfall and fire pit. There are plenty of location options for a pool. Enjoy vistas across the expansive lawns and watch the wildlife against a backdrop of natural woodland. Live in a peaceful rural setting which is zoned for horses, yet have the ability to commute to Tampa, St. Petersburg or the airport and be minutes from excellent schools and shopping.
