 381 Whispering Pines Court, Inverness - For Sale

his superb custom home was designed & built by the current owner! Time & care was taken to make this a truly unique property full one of a kind features. This open concept home w/over 5,700sf of finished living area includes a walkout lower level over looking a spectacular location. There are only 13 homes in this subdivision making it very quiet & tranquil. This property is at the end of a cul-de-sac sitting on a hill that gently slopes down toward the water below. The southern exposure of the back of the home overlooks the protected wetlands & gives the home light & warmth throughout the day. Over 150 tons of natural limestone was brought in to create terraced gardens. Stone steps descend past the terraced gardens to a large 850sf patio with a fire pit & natural stone capped curved sitting wall creating a pavilion like atmosphere to take in the beautiful views of the wooded wildlife refuge bordering the lot. Off the patio is a much desired screened porch for late nights & an evening breeze. Outdoor lighting illuminates the home's exterior in the evening hours. The care & quality of the exterior are carried through to the interior starting w/quality construction. Insulation was a high priority during construction w/R-45 attic insulation, R-38 wall insulation and 2 inch Styrofoam board insulation on the foundation walls. Energy saving Thermopane Low-E glass maintenance free Andersen vinyl clad windows are throughout the home & the south facing windows have a special added tint for extra UV protection. This energy efficient design & build results in incredibly low heating & cooling costs! When entering the foyer through the full length leaded glass front door, you will know that this home has been meticulously maintained & cared for. The foyer w/Italian Travertine tile floor, opens to the great rm w/gorgeous views. This room was built with entertaining in mind. It's huge at over 46ft long w/vaulted ceilings peaking at 21ft high! The center of this room is dominated by a 2 story fireplace w/stone mantel. Beyond is the Solarium. This is a delightful room w/southern exposure & windows on 3 sides. Full of sunlight & warmth, the Italian porcelain floor & brick wall absorb heat & provide passive solar gain in winter. Balconies flank this room on both sides & the 10ft vaulted ceiling adds to the openness & appeal to this special space. The island kitchen has everything you want w/stainless steel appliances, double oven, under cabinet lighting, granite counters & eating area. The main level bedrm is complete with bath making it versatile as an in-law suite, guest rm or office. The lower level is such a fun space w/full bar, wood-burning fireplace, 2nd kitchen, pool table area & 12ft slider to the patio. Italian porcelain tile runs throughout this main area making it worry free. This area also serves as the theater when the privacy shutters are closed & the 7 built-in speakers plus sub-woofer come alive. The large workrm located on the lower level is a handyman's/hobbyist's dream. Numerous 15 & 20 amp outlets are provided to accomidate power tools in this flexible workspace. All this is accessed through a pair of 5ft wide French doors providing easy & convenient access for large projects. On the 2nd floor at one end is a large multipurpose loft that could be used for an art studio, office, hobby rm, exercise rm or extra bedrm. The 46ft long canter-levered balcony overlooks the great rm & serves as a gallery/library.
