Lake Home For SaleWelcome to La Bella Ponderosa Estate!
Inside: This lovely 4 bed / 4 bath home is situated on Lake Dowling, a large private-access-only lake of ~80 acres in size. The house has an open space floor plan with cathedral ceilings, solid oak plantation shutters throughout with matching solid oak hardwood floors and porcelain tile in the kitchen and baths. The kitchen is newly updated with granite countertops and backsplash, an induction cooktop, a one-piece granite sink and a less than whisper-quiet Miele dishwasher. The living room is the focal point of the house and TV uses three glass sliders that disappear behind a wall to provide a twelve foot wide access to the patio and a stunning view of the lake. The living room also has a large remote controlled skylight (with auto-close if rain is detected) and a wood burning fireplace.The Master Bedroom is oversized with dual sinks and closets. The large screened-in patio, a whopping ~1,632 sq ft, has a blue resin-lined 12 x 24 pool with an outdoor shower, a cabana bath, a fish pond, a built-in hot tub (fully Alexa controlled) and an english-pub style bar. The property has a separate 14 x 20 art studio / office that is fully equipped with a 3/4 bathroom, a kitchen with dishwasher plus washer and dryer. It also has a Murphy bed for daytime relaxing and a stunning view of the lake to inspire you.
Outside: This 11 acre gently sloped property is surrounded by rolling hills, rare in Florida and reminiscent of living up north. There is ~800 feet of lakefront, teaming with wildlife. The property is almost completely fenced in with a paved *U-shaped* driveway, two gates, each with remote control openers (plus Alexa controlled from inside the house) and a *Ring* brand doorbell. Both gates and the garage door open and close in a touchless manner using a unique and secure bluetooth signal from your vehicle. No pushing buttons when you come home or when you leave. The imposing lighted fences and gates give this home a stately appearance, day or night, to assure you of the splendor to follow. There is a 14 x 31 climate controlled unattached workshop/garage in addition to the attached two car garage. In addition to all this, there is a large 40 x 45 barn with electricity and water.
Cost Savings: This property has many features to help bring down your mortgage payment! The art studio / office currently rents out for $1,250/mo. Also, the property is green-belted to save you ~40% in property taxes. There is a 10,000 watt solar system and a solar hot water heater. The current owner once received a check from the power company! The house is heated and cooled with a geothermal system that is extremely energy efficient and the attic insulation has double the recommended amount. The barn could be rented out for storage for extra income, too. If you don't want the pine trees , the owner will cut them off.
Set in a highly desirable area, this property benefits from a great location: 6 miles from I-75, 25 minutes from Wesley Chapel where you will find popular entertainment, shopping centers and dining establishments. Just an hour and 15 minutes from the beaches of Clearwater and St. Petersburg and the same distance to Orlando. An hour away from Ocala (Horse Capital of the World) where the stunning World Equestrian Center is located.
