On the chain-of-lakes, this amazing historic Spanish style home has been beautifully updated. The owner's vision and planning have created a wonderful foundation - just waiting for you to make finishing touches! The owner was passionate about preserving the integrity of the Spanish architecture and design, from the large open rooms, arched doorways, coquina-stone fireplace, renovated hard-wood floors, and heavy wood trim found throughout. Upgrades made for beauty and comfort include glass block showers, new tile and fixtures in the kitchen and bathrooms, beautiful cherry cabinets, brushed bronze fixtures, and granite counters, although some original windows and doors remain. (Second bath has an amazing cast iron claw-foot tub from Portugal that needs correct fittings and to be connected to plumbing.) Sit on one of the upstairs balconies and watch the family play in the huge, L-shaped pool or just enjoy the spectacular view of Lake Shipp. Sporting enthusiasts, there is a private dock and boathouse just for you! Bring your fishing gear, pleasure boat, or sea plane -- you'll never run out of things to do or places to go because you're connected to 24 lakes by navigable canals. This is a one of a kind home that offers the very best of Florida living.
