From the moment you walk into this country charmer, all of your senses are delighted. The flower-filled path that leads to the front door gives glimpses into the magic that's behind the large wooden front door. As you enter the hallway, you walk down into the grand, sunken living and dining rooms, flanked by large windows that let in the light and air and give you a glimpse of the gorgeous backyard entertainment area and the non-stop fruit, vegetable and flower gardens dotted with stone pathways and vast green lawns. On the side of the living/dining area is a great bar, perfect for afternoon parties and before-dinner drinks. 

This open-concept area leads to a beautiful blue country eat-in kitchen. All of the kitchen appliances are included in the purchase price, as are the light fixtures and window treatments and a beautiful hand-carved Indian wooden door that serves as a centerpiece in the living room and library. Select furnishings may also be negotiable.

A side door going outside is located in the kitchen for a more casual entrance into the house. A laundry room and small bathroom are also located off the kitchen. On the other side of the Great Room is a relaxing TV room and library, where you can cozy up and watch movies or read your favorite book in front of a sumptuous, field-stone fireplace. For even more warmth, the inviting sunroom off the library invites you to be surrounded by nature in the all-glass structure that leads to the outdoor gardens. 

Down the hall from the library is the oversized master suite with an enormous bathroom and large jacuzzi tub with a skylight, as well as a large separate attached shower room (ideal for "his and hers"). There is also a big walk-in closet. The indoor-outdoor feel of this primary bedroom and bath envelope you in light and make you feel like you've dropped into a luxurious spa. A spa you can enjoy every single day!

Upstairs, you'll find a good-sized office with two guest bedrooms on either side of the study. Both bedrooms have large windows and one has a small terrace. There is also a shared bathroom. All of the upstairs and downstairs bedrooms have heaters.

The piece de resistance is the grand outdoor pergola and entertainment area that includes numerous seating areas, a dining space that can seat at least 10, a big pizza oven, and a separate outdoor kitchen, with a grill, refrigerator, and everything needed to make this the perfect entertaining house. On the side of the pergola is a small, uncovered tiled patio area with a table and umbrella for smaller gatherings. There is even a darling outdoor guest bathroom that rivals that of a fine hotel and a tree filled with orchid plants, a fountain, and a large green lawn dotted with beautiful flowers and shrubbery. 

Here too is a large greenhouse, so fresh vegetables, and exotic plants can be yours all year round, as well as an herb garden and fruit trees including bananas, coffee plants, passion fruit, avocado, lemon, and orange trees.
