Lake-Front Easy-Living 1-Level Contemporary Design
on End of Cul-de-Sac With Expansive Lake Views
Gumbo Limbo is a community of single-family homes surrounding an inland lake. Known for its convenient location, it is handy to the causeway for easy on-off-island travel, midway between bay & beach, & convenient to the bike path & nearby shopping at Jerry’s Center.
Built in 1981 & owned by the Seller since 1984, this home was lovingly used for vacations & as a winter residence for many years.
The way the home is situated on the lot ensures water views from nearly every room, while the winding drive, side-entry garage, & contemporary design add to the curb appeal.
At ground level, it has an oversized 2-car garage.
From the garage, there is a door to dry under home storage beneath the living level.
The stem-wall construction means that the home is a few steps above grade, this contributes to the water views too.
From the entry, the main living level opens to a large living room with wood floors, high ceilings, a wall of built-ins.
Sliders go to an ~680 sq. ft. lakeside deck with raised screening that was added in 2012.
The section closest to the home is covered providing a great spot for al fresco dining.
Inside, the formal dining area off the living room seats 12, while the nearby eat-in kitchen also has a small dining area or breakfast nook.
The picture window next to the breakfast nook provides a private & natural view of the lake.
Off the terra cotta tiled hall to the kitchen is a half bath plus a large separate utility room with full-sized appliances, a laundry sink, & many storage areas.
The kitchen with breakfast bar opens to a family room with brick fireplace, vaulted ceilings, & another slider to the deck.
The master bedroom has a lake view too, with more sliders to the deck, plantation shutters, & an en suite bath with both jetted tub & shower. The master vanity has double sinks.
Two nearby guest rooms share a guest bath (also with double-sink vanity) with tub/shower combo. (Bedroom #3 currently configured as an office.)
The furnishings convey & include custom window treatments, decorative items, fully-equipped kitchen & bedding. Many windows also feature plantation shutters.
Gumbo Limbo has a mandatory homeowners association with low fees (just $213/year).
Lots are measured into the lake. This one measures ~156′ x 238′.
