This exceptional home, in the heart of Governor’s Harbour, has style from the moment you arrive. It is the perfect balance of old-world Spanish hacienda and modern updates. The owners have lovingly care for and upgraded this home while staying true to the architectural integrity of the original designer (and owner), Conrad Rutkowski. Recent structural upgrades include a new terra cotta tiled roof with 25-year ice and water shielding, hurricane grade windows and sliders, upgraded mini-split A/C units, and a new ThermaTru interlocking double front door. However, the real impact of this residence hits from when you enter it. As you stand in the large foyer with transitional bench seating on both side of the pass through, you have extensive water views all the way through the home. The continuity of flooring with the custom-made “Franciscan” pattern tiles makes this large home even more expansive. A few steps forward and you are standing in the huge two-story banquet hall with a cathedral ceiling boasting exposed wooden beams and a view to the suspended stairs leading to the master bedroom suite landing. This master bedroom has high ceilings with exposed beams and a slider to the private balcony facing the canal. On each side of the sleeping area are spacious walk-in closet rooms with built-in cabinets. One of these closets is an entire vanity/dressing room with a private sink and a water view. The attached master bathroom has been completely renovated with modern lighting and fixtures, and includes an entire room dedicated to the large shower. Back on the ground floor and to the west of the home is the brand-new kitchen with new Shaker cabinets and white quartz counter tops, a granite island with seating for four, new appliances, and modern light fixtures. To the north, and through three wide arches, you enter the large living room and a wall of windows facing the canal and boat dock. Just to the side of the living room is a den/sun room with wrap around access to the brick patios surrounding the home. To the east of the home are the two large guest rooms. Passing the first of the renovated bathrooms, the first bedroom/office has towering ceilings, exposed wooden beams and updated light fixtures. The second guest room is a full in-law suite/income apartment. Also, with high ceilings and exposed beams, this bedroom has an extra-large closet with additional storage, a refreshed private bathroom, and access to a bright and airy living room/kitchen space. This kitchen was installed less than a year ago and has modern cabinetry and a full range of modern appliances (refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer unit). The counter tops, back splash and large island are quartz. Designed to serve as an indoor-outdoor living space, it has sliders on two sides with access to the brick patio and canal views. There is a separate laundry room off the kitchen with a washer, dryer, over-sized rinse sink and storage cabinets/hanging racks. Speaking of storage, there is a plethora of storage between the 2 separate master bedroom 15-foot long attic storage areas, the attic space off the first floor, the two first floor hall utility closets, and a 2-car integrated garage with a loft.
This home is an amazing value for an incredibly well-built residence located walking distance from Public Beach, 2 miles from Camana Bay, and in quiet residential area with no Strata or HOA fees. Call for a viewing, this opportunity wont last long.
