Priced below sellers recent appraisal! What an amazing opportunity to own this 12.5 acre country retreat / family compound only minutes from the Villages! When you first pull up to your fenced and gated property, you will drive through a two and a half acre parcel (deeded separately, included in sale) that leads you to a nicely shaped 10 acre, pond front parcel. On it, a beautiful custom built, solid block and brick home and a 40×80 metal building with an extra thick slab for equipment, its own septic, 200 amp electric service and RV hookup. When you walk in the front door of your custom home, you will be greeted with beautiful light wood floors, cathedral ceilings, a gas fireplace, and a view of your pond over a lovely, sloping elevation change. The living area sits level with your open kitchen and formal dining room through double doors to the side. To the right of your entry you have a split level wing boasting a large family room, bedroom and laundry to the lower split, and a large master bedroom / bath with access to a private balcony and a second bedroom on the upper. Back on your main level, you also have a large walk in pantry with a hidden “safe room” just below the floor. This is a 6×8 concrete bunker for storms, storage, etc, equipped with ventilation and power / water hookups. Other pluses include a metal roof, 400 amp main home service, 2 on demand hot water heaters, new ac in 2014, solid wood cabinets in kitchen and new carpet / paint in the bedrooms and family room!
