Williams2 is delighted to bring to market this superb family home, located in the sought-after gated community of The Lakes at South Sound.
This home was very cleverly designed to afford maximum privacy and to enjoy true Caribbean outdoor/indoor living at its finest.
The moment you enter, you will discover that every part of this home is filled with unique charm and character. Upon entering the front doors, you step immediately into an enormous, breath-taking screened lanai, which is surrounded by lush tropical plants and rustling palm trees, giving a feeling of peace and tranquility. This extraordinary home was designed around the lanai and in the centre is a large saltwater pool. This expansive outdoor living space is truly magical; perfect for lounging with a good book, or for alfresco dining and serves as an extensive outdoor living room. At nighttime lighting and ceiling fans transform the lanai into a perfect area for entertaining, where Indoor/outdoor living blends seamlessly.
This well-proportioned home has high ceilings, is 3,679 sq. ft. on one level, and enjoys 4 good-sized bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. The master suite has a very spacious bathroom with beautiful cabinetry, and there's a large walk-in shower, as well as a separate soaking tub and a spacious custom fitted closet. Bedrooms 2 and 3 each have their own bathrooms and plenty of closet space, and there is a large, fitted utility room. The property has an expansive double car garage with a huge attic space above it, for your extra storage needs.
Outside, accessed from the lanai is the very private guest suite/bedroom 4, or home office, with its own private entrance, custom fitted closet and full bathroom.
The heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen and dining area where brilliant beams of light give a feeling of calm and serenity and French doors give wonderful views of the pool and lanai. The kitchen boasts high-quality custom white cabinetry, very tasteful countertops and there's a huge breakfast bar, ideal for family gatherings. The huge living room/family room has beautiful built-in custom bookcases and French doors which lead onto a large patio. This runs the width of the house and creates yet another peaceful enclave for enjoying a good book and a cup of coffee. The fully fenced yard provides plenty of space for children and dogs to play.
The home was built with great integrity and has hurricane rated windows and doors. One incredible feature that sets this home apart in these times of increasing energy bills is its amazing energy efficiency. Built from energy efficient ICF blocks, the home has high SEAR AC units, a spray foamed attic, gas cooker, gas hot water heater and gas dryer, but the true coup de gras, is that this house has extensive solar panels and is part of the CUC CORE agreement. While many homes of this size may be paying several thousand dollars a month for their CUC bills, this home pays on average only CI$600 per annum or CI$50 per month! Incredible!
The exclusive community of the Lakes at South Sound is a wonderful place to live and is a peaceful enclave where families walk their dogs and children can play safely and ride their bikes. Residents have access to a large inland lake and across the road access to the sandy beach at South Sound, where you can enjoy reef protected snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding. The Lakes is conveniently located close to the tennis, squash and rugby clubs, good schools and just a few moments from George Town.
