Nestled under the oaks on the edge of the wilderness this very tasteful home offers seclusion within the gates of the desirable King and Bear community, which is part of the World Golf Village. Put this home on your must see list! The King and Bear was designed with a high respect for natural areas and majestic live oaks. St. John's county is rated the healthiest county in Fl, its unemployment is 2nd lowest, and the schools are rated #1 in the state. The split bedroom design downstairs consists of two bedrooms and bath on one side and a 480 sq ft master bedroom suite with bay windows and trey ceiling on the other. The master bath has two 36" vanities with dark sugarbeet maple cabinets and marble counter tops, a marble jetted hot tub, walk in shower, walk in closet, water closet, and vaulted ceiling. All bath rooms have marble counter tops. The foyer, kitchen, den,dining, and living rooms have ten foot ceilings, and double wide crown molding in formal areas. The kitchen has 42 inch upper and 36 inch lower rich spice maple cabinets with dark granite counter tops, tile above, and under cabinet lighting. This home takes advantage of the natural gas supplied in the King and Bear with gas stove, gas fireplace, gas hot water heater, and gas bibs for clothes dryer and outside grill. This home has an automated water softener., and a six zone automatic sprinkler system. The kitchen opens to the dinette and den with built in entertainment cabinet and gas fireplace. Ceiling Speakercraft rear speakers for surround sound are in the den, and zone two stereo speakers are in the living room, master bath, and lanai. From the den take the stairs up through a beautiful, one of a kind, original coral reef mural to the 500 sq ft suite suitable for a variety of functions including guest suite. From the dinette enter a screened, tiled lanai which opens to a pavered patio and large, easy maintenance, well-landscaped yard with fruit trees and tropical foliage blending with the wild. (the lot size is 0.367 acres-decimals not allowed on that line) This property is also listed on mls with Century 21. My contract allows me to sell by owner, but I cannot list it below the C21 listed price. Of course, by owner allows me to sell for a substantially lower. price, so I expect offers from here to be below the listed price. This home is well worth seeing and now priced to sell quickly.
What I love about my home
The serenity of this comfortable home is a welcome reprieve coming home from the noise and pressures of the city and I95, which is only 5.5 miles from the driveway. Downtown St. Augustine is only about 25 minutes away. The King and Bear is named for the semi-private golf club within, which is named for its designers, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicholas. Driving in through the guarded gate into the trees, by the larger homes along the beautiful golf course, and the preserved wooded areas including magnificent old oaks is always a joy. This is one thing that makes the King and Bear unlike almost every other development. The always 86 degree lap pool is a rare amenity. A new state of the art fitness center is about to break ground. This is a truly wonderful place to live.
