Luxury and elegance in this grand Burnt Pine home are unrivaled for thoughtful style and functional amenities. Renowned builder Maurice Sweet and his high-quality design-build team conceived and crafted this unique, custom home with the discriminating homeowner in mind. The property entrance columns, smooth pavers, covered parking, oversized two-car garage and an additional golf cart garage, intriguing architectural lines and clay tile roof evoke a stately presence with a hint of Mediterranean influence. Sherwin-Williams Loxon(r) exterior paint carries a 10-year warranty right into year 2026. The grandeur inside is replete with angled walls, wood accents, tray ceilings, a built-in home office and a guest room with custom alcoves doubling as sleeping or reading nooks and two private porches. A total kitchen renovation in 2016 features stainless steel appliances, double ovens, gas range, quartz counters and a stunning copper range hood. Counter space is complemented with an island and breakfast bar, and the horizontal diamond mosaic backsplash adds a sophisticated design element. Completing the kitchen is a stone walled wine cellar for 238 bottles, a wine refrigerator and additional storage for wine crates. An arched doorway flanked by white columns opens into a formal dining room with a pass-through wet bar into the kitchen. A large fireplace and wall of glass looking over the pool and golf course captivate attention from the entrance foyer across the formal living room. The first-floor entertainment room features a view of the pool and the second-floor entertainment room opens to a large porch overlooking the pool and golf course. Five bedrooms and five full bathrooms (the master suite and two additional bedrooms are located on the first floor), plus a powder room, assure privacy and comfort for a crowd. Screened-in porch takes on new meaning when it includes a pool, spa and lounging area and opens to an extravagant covered entertaining space where an outdoor kitchen with copper hood over the gas grill, wet bar, stone fireplace, bistro-style seating, bar counter and pecky cypress beams entice an outdoor lifestyle of ease and serenity. The pool has been converted to saltwater, and the fabulous view sweeps across the 18th hole of Burnt Pine to the 11th at The Raven. Of functional note are two tankless water heaters, security system, built-in hurricane shutters, central vacuum and smart home technology. Your home will maintain the temperature you desire with three HVAC systems. Two stories couldn't be easier to enjoy with an elevator to access the second floor. Residing on the golf course on nearly three quarters of an acre, this home maintains a blissful privacy of lifestyle and investment value. The gated community of Burnt Pine is the most prestigious community in the Sandestin Golf and Resort, a major destination for all seasons and all ages and named the #1 resort on Florida's Emerald Coast. This magical 2,400-acre resort is comprised of over 70 unique neighborhoods of condominiums, villas, town homes, and estates.
