Heated floors in the living room and designer touches everywhere. Second floor with one en suite bedroom, two more bedrooms and hall bath. Closets galore. All flooring, fixtures, finishes are exceptional and high end. Pool house has kitchen and rec area, full gorgeous new bathroom and its own laundry room. It has central air, heat and security. New 5c garage is a car collector's dream with heat, aircon, plumbing, security and an upstairs finished loft perfect for a remote or virtual office space, classroom pod, gym or more. Remarkable large pool has been newly replastered, new decking and mostly re-piped with PVC. New bluestone pool surround. A fountain greets you upon entering the gated property which is further enhanced with a bocce court, patio areas, pergola, and firepit crushed gravel patio. New pavers and asphalt driveways.
