Lot 48 is on the west side of the resort and the coach faces east. In 2006, the current owners chose to buy this particular lot because:
1) From inside the coach, there's a full, unobstructed view of the waterway because the lot
faces the boat ramp. You will feel compelled to have your morning coffee in the coach!
2) The morning sun is out of your windshield by 11:30 a.m., no need to have the view of the
canal blocked by sun shades all day.
3) No traffic noise. It backs onto other homes which are seldom occupied.
4) You can easily walk-in your kayaks/paddle board into the water - it's only 75 steps away!
5) The pool, the hot tub, showers/restrooms, the laundry room, the pet station AND visitors parking are conveniently just across the street to the left of the boat ramp. Very convenient when the kids/grand-kids come and stay for a while!
6) Location is everything and that's what this privacy lot is all about!
Great curb appeal all the way around including at night with its garden lights on the extensive landscaping and its many LED pot lights. As soon as you come in, you will be impressed! It was thoroughly, carefully designed by owners/realtors and completed in 2018. It really feels bigger than its 717 sq. ft...look at how spacious the living room is! It is always bright due to two south facing operative windows that also offer cross ventilation.
First, a rare side-door...very practical and effortless, as you don't have to always use the big sliding doors. This entry leads into a very bright sitting area. Note the strategic location of the custom-made tall mirror! Convenient are the plugs/light switches on each side of the sofa. One is for the LED rope lighting under the cabinetry. There are four tall cabinetry doors: in the cabinet to the left is a practical drop-down clothes rod. In the cabinet to the right, extra shelves were made for additional storage. To the left is the unique bathroom...expertly designed to maximize space, which resulted in an oversize, lovely, beach-like shower (no curb, no door) complete with a foot-rest and a tall niche with glass shelves & ambient lighting. A south-facing window was installed for lots of natural light and it is also operative...fresh air, in addition to the exterior-vented fan. Note how the tile work was done without metal corners...which required for all corner tiles, to be cut in 45 degrees. Convenient is the very wide vanity which offers lots of counter space not to mention more storage. The tall cabinet above the toilet offers even more storage.
The bathroom and the sitting area both feature solid 8-foot sliding doors with top quality hardware. The full-length window in the side door is dressed with a custom-made blind for privacy when wanted.
Pale, soothing colour palette, white quartz counters plus the abundance of windows/sliding doors means plenty of natural light. The lights never need to be turned on until it gets dark and at that time, there are dimmers & ambiance lighting everywhere.
For a splash of colour, note the herringbone-installed glass backsplash. The floor, throughout, is not wood although it's been touched many times, by many, because they could not believe it was actually porcelain tile. It's a great floor not only for its colour but for its texture AND it never shows dirt!
The cabinetry throughout is all custom-made. Every inch was thought of very carefully. Hence, the space to the right of the laundry machines allowed specifically to hang a step-ladder. Above the laundry cabinet, there is a nice, deep cabinet with pull-out drawer - perfect for all that extra bedding for guests. The broom/ironing board closet is complete with an electrical plug for a cordless vacuum! There are two shelves for laundry products and the iron. There is a removeable panel, for easy access to inspect the dryer vent and the hose connections. No need to pull out those machines! Located in here, versus outside, is the hot-water-on-demand control - a rare convenience!
The top cabinets on either side of the hood fan, were made to have four shelves for additional useable space. The drawer to the right of the stove, features moveable pegs to place all your dishes. Its location is perfect in relation to the dishwasher's location.
You'll love the size of the pantry with its pull-out drawers and its built-in plug for small appliances. Above the fridge is another very deep & wide cabinet with shelving. As well, another plug was installed way on top of the cabinet to connect both the router and the modem for internet.
Rare, toe-kick drawers were installed everywhere in the kitchen. Check them out!
The cabinets below the window, also have specific functions in addition to providing a lot of counter space. The cabinet to the left has an electrical plug for either a printer hide-out or for a future wine fridge. The cabinet to the right houses all the electronics and its exterior wall is equipped with a silent flow thermostatic fan for proper ventilation. Pull-out shelves were also installed for easy access to the back of the electronics.
The island offers many perks as well. Check out underneath of the counter! No matter where one sits, an electrical plug is available for his/her device. The strips of LED lights are quite nice
at night too. There are real doors on both sides of the island - the doors facing the sliding glass doors allow very easy access to the reverse-osmosis system and to the plumbing. No more having to do repair work from inside the cabinet!
Note the brushed brass hardware on all of the cabinetry - all different shapes & sizes, yet all from the same collection.
An electric fireplace, versus a gas fireplace, was installed because it can be enjoyed all night long without heat if you wish! It's also safer for your television right above it! There are three settings... 1) display only, 2) display & heat and 3) display, heat and air exchanger. Should you prefer to have a gas fireplace, there is a rough-in for it. Also note, here again, how every inch was carefully used. The fireplace is only eight inches deep inside the house instead of the usual 24 inches! Now that makes a world of a difference!
A TV niche was also built to avoid having the television sticking out the wall. It can be pulled out up to approx. 20" and turned to be able to watch that game from outside! The niche features LED lighting, BEHIND the television-a feature highly recommended when watching TV at night.
There are no big posts in the corners of this built-out - hence more space! Beautiful crown molding was installed for a more crafty look. Check out the ceiling fan in the living room - it's beautiful!
From inside, you can see who is coming to visit... thanks to the two front, east-facing windows. Plus, that morning sun coming in is precious!
There are two sets of glass sliding doors, one 12' wide and the other 18' wide. Both face north, therefore no direct sun coming in, that is, from October to May. The coach house is very comfortable temperature-wise, even when it's hot during the season. This allows for those walls of sliding doors to be kept opened most of the time. What a difference this makes! And then, the outdoor kitchen is right there! The I-shape outdoor island, with granite top, has lots of stainless steel storage drawers/doors, a gas Lynx double-burner, a nice grill AND a good-size sink, a must-have in any outdoor kitchen! In and under the island, is a gas manifold to control the appliances' shut-off valve. As well, there are underground sleeves for electricity, gas and water that go to the raised flowerbed, sleeves that lead all the way to south side of the building near the exterior electrical panel and a sleeve that leads to the utility pedestal.
Note the cluster of trees when you look at the back...how nice is that! And they are all lit up at night. At the front, the mature hedge and the three palm trees all offer welcomed shade on hot sunny days. The coach house itself, also offers plenty of shade throughout the day.
Additional features and important upgrades Both cement curbs, are on the lot line. The utility curb on the coach side is for: soft and or hard water, 50 amps, low voltage. This allows for cables to hang versus laying on the ground.
There are eight (8) electrical plugs at the front of the property, 9 at the back and 5 in the soffit (for future blinds)
The electrical panel was installed outside, versus taking wall space inside. Strategically installed at about midway of the wall, its location means shorter cable runs for more evenly balanced power.
Air-conditioning unit sits on a raised cement platform
Low voltage & water for planter at front tire of coach can easily be removed & capped off.
Electricity, 120V (for LED lighting) & natural gas at fire pit
Six built-in ceiling speakers inside the coach house.
Pre-wired for cameras: for one interior and for 5 exterior cameras.
Primary sediment filter, water softener and secondary carbon filter, are protected and hidden in a storage unit behind the coach. This complete system supplies soft water, behind the coach, at the front to wash cars & golf carts, to both water features, to the coach, to the outdoor island sink and finally throughout the coach house. Note that this is all owned and included... no monthly fees!
Many low voltage lines, additional irrigation lines & sleeves, for easy relocation of plants and LED lighting
Independent main irrigation valve with filter which automatically flushes out.
You can park 2 cars and 1 golf cart, or 1 car, 2 golf carts... each with its own electrical plug.
An exterior shower, discreetly located for you and or your furry pet! Speaking of which, note that it would be very easy to have a gate installed to keep your dog in the backyard!
The raised flowerbed, in the back yard, has an underground gas pipe for the torch and two electrical plugs one of which is for the water feature.
Finally...why not just make it yours!!!
