The gourmet, fully equipped kitchen boasts a 10’x4’ granite island with easy access pull out soft close drawers. There is a stainless French door style refrigerator with front door water/ice access, a refrigerated pull-out drawer for quick access, and a bottom drawer freezer. A stainless hood sits over the black glass stove top and oven, stainless microwave, Bosch dishwasher, and a stainless sink completes this modern kitchen. The kitchen has an access door to the garage for easy unloading of groceries or when you return from the beach. In the garage are a full-size Samsung washer and a dryer with additional storage and free-to-use beach accessories; floats, cooler, umbrella and high-end beach chairs.

French doors off the dining area, which has a 10 person solid Indian Rosewood dining room table, lead out to your large covered lanai with elegant tongue and groove ceiling, large new dining table with seating for 12, a wall-mounted 50” flat screen TV with cable, a propane BBQ grill, and 6 large pool-side loungers all of which are enclosed in a screened (bug-free) cage with a heated, lighted, saltwater, pebble-tec pool that has a bench for sitting.

Off the living area is sunroom with a queen sofa sleeper with great pool view and access to the lanai and pool area. The Living Room is spacious and has a blue leather queen sofa sleeper as well with a 60" large flat screen TV, Xfinity cable and WiFi for entertainment.
