Elevation, Elevation, Elevation !! Hurricane Idalia could not touch this well-elevated home standing at 13' natural ground level and another 9' to the living level. This amazing home stands within view of the Gulf of Mexico, and yet had no sea water intrusion, even in the carports and garage. Built originally by and for one of the Island's best known contractors and finished by a consummate woodworking genius, the evidence of their collaboration is everywhere. From the concrete pillars, (NOT pilings), of the foundation to the roof peak and the soaring cathedral ceilings inside- From the custom cabinetry and doors, all solid heart pine and workshop made- this home could most likely not be reproduced today for the asking price, let alone the inclusion of two additional buildable lots. Oh, and the western-most of those buildable lots looks directly out on Gulf of Mexico waters and directly towards those legendary Cedar Key Sunsets! All told, nearly a full acre, (.99+) of well-elevated ground level lots culminating with City owned waterfront conservation land. Beneath the soaring ceiling with its furniture grade beams is a huge open floor plan living area easily configured with a dining area, conversation couches, home theater, music nook- You will be the interior designer! Just off the living area, and open to it via the breakfast bar, is the fully equipped kitchen allowing the chef to party along with the partiers! Everything opens onto the massive covered and screened in porch if the party decides to take it outside. (The hot tub is a negotiable item and may be wrapped into your offer.) Two spacious bedrooms, with an in suite bath for the Master, open onto the 8 foot wide wrap around deck through sliding glass doors. Open the vertical blinds to invite nature into your morning, or close them tight for sleeping in. Your call. Recently serviced central heat and air, of course, circulated with the help of 8 ceiling fans. Beneath the main floor is a single car garage with electric opener. The current owner has chosen to furnish it as "Party Central", and it features a regulation size, slate bed billiard table, which is another negotiable item. Outside there is ample covered and open parking for multiple vehicles and boat trailers, all easily accessible via the circular drive. Sandra Street is paved and city maintained. No through traffic insures your serenity. The pavement ends right where the driveway to the western buildable lot will begin! Start to count the ways you could enjoy your new property. 1. Live in it as is for luxurious serenity forever. 2. Sell off the two lots and make your savings account happy! 3. Watch in comfort as your new waterfront home takes shape and when finished, market this home to the next fortunate owner. Any way you look at it, you win! Do not let your love of Cedar Key be threatened by Idalia! Come back for another look. This beautiful home is shown by appointment.
