This unforgettable lakefront estate is everything "Florida Lake Life." Located on beautiful 376 acre Lake Carlton connected to the chain of lakes including Lake Beauclaire, Lake Dora, Lake Harris, Lake Eustis leading all the way up the Ocklawaha River Basin and eventually out to the Atlantic Ocean via the St. Johns River, this park-like setting was created on a very private and exclusive section of Trimble Park Rd., where you'll enjoy each feature, from the drive in to the property to its every carefully thought out detail. Enter thru the private automatic gate, and on the left will be the completely renovated guest cottage (the original home on the property built in 1940), finished with 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, and a large kitchen/family room layout perfect for family visits, or short term guests. Appointed with hand scraped hardwood floors throughout, tongue in groove knotty pine ceilings, and featuring a double sided rock-built wood burning fireplace separating the kitchen and family room, these cozy quarters will charm you the moment you step inside. Further down the brick pavered driveway, past the playground, you'll approach the main home consisting of two majestic stories, custom designed and built in 2009, boasting 3 large bedrooms, 2 and 1/2 baths, two very spacious gathering areas (one up and one down), a spectacular country eat-in kitchen, finished with granite counter tops, custom hickory cabinets, and a large cooking island with food prep sink - all tied in with custom hickory hardwood flooring and 24" tile throughout. Additional living space includes a game room/bonus room located over the garage, massive back lanai featuring custom summer kitchen with brick accent wall, built-in propane grill, stainless steel hood vent, and dual refrigerators, all offered as a centerpiece for the covered portion of the beautifully brick pavered lanai looking out over the open pool and pool deck: the perfect place to gaze to the west and watch the sunset over the Lake! Enjoy the chain of lakes fully from your private dock and covered boat house (parking and hoists for two boats plus open parking for personal watercraft) boating, fishing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, or just plain staring out over the crystal clear water listening to the sounds of the lake.
