|5120 BAY STATE ROAD, PALMETTO FL 34221|
Boat lovers’ paradise! This incredible home is located on the finger canals in the Palmetto Skyway community. You can head straight down the canal from the boat dock with a power lift and be in the bay within moments. The best part is there are no bridges to navigate around! The lift has two new motors with a 10,000lb capacity. The canal, which often hosts manatees and dolphins, is great for fishing and deep enough to handle larger boats. While we are talking about the fabulous outdoor lifestyle this home offers, let’s dig into the rest. The heated pool with a slide also has a spa. Off to the side of the yard is a fire pit positioned perfectly for you to enjoy the water views and a nice fire. Tons of outdoor seating areas: under the roof line for shade, around the pool, or in the screen room. Tall hedges offer privacy as you enjoy the backyard. From the listing details, you can see it is a 3-bedroom and 3 full baths with 2 half baths home… plus a lot of other details, but there is so much more to this house that you should know about. So, let's dig into the nuts and bolts of what this house has to offer. Unlike most 2 and 3-story homes, which have block construction for the main level and then stick-built for the upper floors, this entire structure is poured concrete for extra stability. There is an elevator from the ground level that accesses all three floors. Inside the elevator, the back panel is glass and provides Florida-themed etched glass and custom tile work providing easy access to every level of the home. When you first enter the home, the large foyer is big enough to be used as a sitting room. Off the foyer is a half bath. Next is a dining room with built-in cabinets. However, the wall separating the living from the dining room is not a support wall and could be removed if you prefer a more open concept. If you love to cook, this kitchen is tricked out! You have everything you need to prep fantastic meals from the 6-burner gas cooktop to the double oven, right down to the warming drawer, separate ice maker, and wine fridge. Just provide the groceries! Maybe the best part is the wall of sliding doors that run the full back wall giving you incredible views of the canal. In fact, the 3rd level also has that same wall of windows giving you fantastic views to start your day. The 3rd level is set up so that it can be an entire owner’s suite. The bedroom has two very large walk-in closets with mirrored dressing areas. Around the corner is an office with its own half bath. Not to be outdone, the office has a small lanai and a spiral staircase taking you to a cupola. Add a couple of chairs, and you have the best views around to start, or end, your day. The other two bedrooms are also en suites with their own private bath. The 1st floor has a large family room with a pool table, air hockey, space to add gym equipment, or whatever else you can imagine. Other details of note: overhead sprinkler system, 250 gal buried propane tank, ridiculously low HOA of just $75 annually, hurricane shutters and the water side of the second floor are motorized, large 4 car garage, second mini garage for golf cart or storage, light switches at accessibility heights, 2 electric-start gas fireplaces, 2 tankless water heaters, crown molding, and fluted trim work throughout. Located 10 minutes from i75 you can be in St Pete or Sarasota in 20 minutes. If you take your boat is even faster and more fun. Make plans to see the rest for yourself.
