This MLS is for the Main House (4590 Carter Rd) and is one of two houses being sold together on the same parcel. Please see MLS #1209103 for the ''Guest House'' (4600 Carter Rd) info. Photos and description are of both homes. It's not often an estate becomes available -at least not an estate as spectacular as this one! This majestic property is located near the end of a private 1-lane road surrounded by centuries old oak trees for that ''old Florida'' feel. It sits on over 5 acres of wonderful, pristine Florida land complete with natural beauty and the wildlife that comes with it: turkeys, deer, hawks, just to name a few. The owners have enhanced the natural beauty by adding not one, but two lovely homes, a koi pond, salt water swimming pool, a private aviary and several out-buildings for various uses. The possibilities of this sanctuary with no HOA are seemingly endless. The main house is a two-story, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 4,481sqft heated and cooled, block home with a brick and stucco exterior. As you enter the home, you are greeted a formal living area with a wood-burning grand fireplace and 20' ceilings with large windows overlooking the beautiful grounds at the rear of the home and dual French doors leading to the covered lanai. It has a formal dining room and a spacious kitchen with an extraordinary amount of cabinets and granite countertops with bar height eat-in kitchen seating. The breakfast nook overlooks the family room and the covered, wrap-around lanai and pool area outside. The first floor has 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms (of which one bathroom has a separate corner soaker tub, convenient zero-entry large shower, and his/hers vanities) and an office.

The second floor has a guest bedroom at the top of the stairs.

It has an en suite bathroom with his/hers vanities, large walk-in closet, an extra adjoining room that could be used as a nursery, exercise room, or office as needs arise. Both second floor bedrooms have separate private balconies overlooking the beautiful pool, koi pond and mature trees on the rear of the property. The first-floor wrap-around covered lanai spans the rear of the home with ample space for grilling, entertaining, and relaxing. The 15' x 34' custom in-ground heated pool with extra 7'x7' sun deck and bench in the deep end makes this pool comfortable for people of all ages. A beautiful 6' Tennessee rock, double-sided fountain with trickling water into the 7' x 7' spa and into the large koi pond offers extra relaxation after a long day. The approximately 1200sqft koi pond has two 7' concrete decks, three access bridges and is home to approx. 20 koi. Adjacent to the koi pond is a custom-built aviary with its own water supply.
