A picturesque two-story home on 9+ fenced acres in the Trails of Panther Ridge welcomes you to a country lifestyle in a deed restricted community in Lakewood Ranch. Blending the essence of a northeastern farmhouse with southern luxury style and features, the home is full of stunning upgrades and details. A newly renovated kitchen, with dual commercial refrigerators, giant quartz countertops, quality cabinets, vegetable washing sink, coffee and breakfast bars overlooks the gathering room with a corner wood burning fireplace, and French doors to the screened porch with a peaceful view of the backyard. Off the two-car garage is a large mudroom, which also serves as a handy laundry with lots of storage. A spacious front dining room has views of the front porch and gardens. The Master Bedroom has two walk-in closets, a luxurious Master Bath with glassed shower, and a raised bathtub, all recently remodeled. Upstairs are three bedrooms, large bathroom, picture gallery, and bonus room. The backyard grounds have an enchanting pergola overlooking the saltwater pool/spa. Adjacent to the 4-stall barn complete with drive in storage, you’ll find the dressage ring, ready for riding. Small turnout pastures along with a massive lush grassy pasture, are perfect for equestrian activities. The property also has a gate secured entry, pond, circular driveway and beautiful live oaks. Just minutes to a new Publix (3 miles), Premier Sports Complex, Lakewood Ranch Hospital, A-rated schools, UTC Mall, Benderson Park, and I75 (8 miles). Beaches? Siesta key, Lido and Anna Maria. Golf? Concession, Lakewood national, The Ritz and Esplanade. Trails? 15 miles of private riding, walking, biking trails maintained by HOA. It is paradise.
