Palatial best describes this exquisitely upgraded home. If you are looking for an elegantly finished home to live in and entertain in, then this is it. Comfortably prepare dinner from the kitchen overlooking the family room while chatting with your guests. Upgrades include granite counter tops, tall kitchen cabinetry, 16” porcelain diagonal tile, high hat lights, crown molding, a coffered ceiling plus a frameless shower enclosure in the master. Telescoping sliders open up completely to combine the living room and the extended lanai into a fabulous single room for entertaining (the lanai overlooks a private backyard and a serene canal). This is a true 3 bedroom each with a window, a closet and a door (one is currently used as a den).
