Welcome to this stunning waterfront oasis, nestled in the Point Seaside neighborhood of Crystal Beach, a charming and picturesque coastal community with a unique blend of old Florida charm, natural beauty, and a welcoming community atmosphere. And, let’s not forget the breathtaking views of the Gulf waters, mesmerizing sunsets at the community beach, and the Pinellas Trail. Crystal Beach is zoned for the most coveted schools in the area, including Palm Harbor University! And, Dunedin is close by. This exceptional residence offers the perfect blend of luxury, comfort, and coastal living, providing a truly remarkable place to call home. Completed in 2022, this custom coastal classic was built by Marc Rutenberg Homes, a renowned and respected luxury home builder with a strong reputation for crafting exquisite custom homes, a meticulous attention to detail, and an emphasis on using the finest materials, all resulting in homes that exude elegance and sophistication. This home is superior to any other in the area. Built to the most stringent of current hurricane requirements, the foundation of the home is slab upon concrete and rebar auger cast pilings, the industry gold standard. Other construction features include impact-rated windows and doors throughout, cutting edge Icynene high R-value foam insulation, and Hardiboard siding. Upon entering the front door, you are greeted by a soaring, three-story atrium, and an open-concept design, allowing for seamless transitions between living spaces, while also maximizing the breathtaking views of the water. Enjoy sunrises over the nature preserve and water in the morning from your 47-foot wide rear porch, and magnificent sunsets over Gulf of Mexico in the evening from your front balcony. And all three floors are serviced by an elevator. Multiple windows, French doors, and sliders across the back, all combine with the open floor plan to create a bright, airy, and comfortable 2nd floor living area. The luxury, gourmet kitchen features GE Monogram appliances, gas cooktop, glass tile backsplash, Silestone countertops, custom cabinetry, double oven, Advantium microwave/third oven, and a spacious island with seating for five. The dining room provides gorgeous water views to the south, and conservation to the east. On the other side of the house, retire to your Master Suite, complete with more views, slider access to the patio, his-and-hers walk-in closets, and a spacious master bath that will take your breath away. The third floor is for watching sunsets, enjoying wine or an aperitif at the bar, and cherishing time spent with friends and family. The bar is full service, with sink, dishwasher, wine cooler, beverage fridge, and icemaker. The space is already wired for a digital baby grand piano, if you want to add in some George Winston standards. Or just listen to your other favorites through the whole-house speaker system. Two additional bedrooms and a bathroom, all with water views, are located on this floor.
Ready for a swim? The lushly landscaped backyard pool is stunning, with its large sun shelf and natural stone waterfall. The spacious, pavered patio is perfect for entertaining friends. There is a fenced dog run with astroturf for your best canine friends. You may also launch your kayaks just steps away. The four-car garage includes ample storage and sliding door access to the yard and patio.
