Spectacular home brings you home on the island with a truly incredible tropical resort-style pool! High elevation with zero damage from any past hurricanes, most of this house is on ground level with no steps. Impeccably maintained, this home needs nothing for you to move in and can even be purchased fully furnished! Expansive cook's kitchen with custom Kraftmaid cabinetry features double ovens, double dishwashers, quality granite countertops, and a two-level island that is the heart of the home. 10' ceilings highlight a family room that offers plenty of space, large windows for light and bright living, and a gorgeous custom rock fireplace with hand-hewn live edge cedar mantle. Custom trim work throughout the house highlights the windows and doors. The staircase to the primary bedroom is beautifully finished with custom wainscoting and spindles hand carved by a master carpenter. Overhead, the windows of the crows nest offer light even on darker days. Upstairs you'll find a slate-tiled shower, custom vanity with vessel sink and Hansgrohe fixtures. Dreamy closets with 2 walk ins and a linen closet will house the most extensive clothing collection. Anderson sliding doors take you to the private balcony with a bird's eye view of the beautiful marsh beyond. One hidden upgrade is on the roof--lightning rods! Installed in cooperation with the electric company, it is fully grounded down several feet at the meter. Back downstairs, the spacious dining room overlooks the incredible pool area. The fine screen enclosure measures roughly 40'x60' and keeps the sparkling free-form pool clean from debris as well as protecting you from seasonal mosquitoes or gnats. The saltwater pool is the perfect solution to warm summer days, with LED color-changing lights, diving board with 9'+ depth on one side, curly slide, baja shelf with fountains for lounge chair use, and an infinity edge that blurs the lines between pool and Gulf just beyond in the marsh. Custom rock work highlights the corners and amazing mermaid statues that keep the resort vibe going! 50' Trex decking porch offers shade and hidden outdoor storage for all your water toys. Speaking of storage, don't forget the 1 1/2 car garage, a rarity on the island. Lots of dedicated parking available unlike anywhere else in town. This home is exceptionally suited to entertaining, and would be an incredible full time home or Airbnb investment. There are no other homes on the island like this one. Enjoy all the finer things in life with none of the worries of flooding. Your large backyard becomes an expansive view of the wildlife rich area known as Osprey Cove. Marsh birds galore, pairs of eagles soaring overhead, and osprey nests all around, it is a veritable Audubon book. You'll never tire of the ever changing marsh and water, the grasses and the tides. This special retreat is Cedar Key living at it's finest, in a home that is about as perfect as it can get.
