Property Description

Former Bay Forest Model Home (NV Homes Bornquist) may be your dream house in 2019! This home has 3 BD, 3 BA and a front study that easily could serve as a 4th (guest) BD. 31779 is loaded with all the upgrades a Model would boast. Start with a luxuriously landscaped lot backing to thick woods. With no house on one side, 31779~s beauty is augmented by a broad expanse of lawn and landscaping enjoyed by few others. Inside, gleaming wood floors, upgraded carpets and tile greet you. There's a beautiful wood inlay in the foyer. Unique wall treatments abound and all are in impeccable condition, as are the drapes, window treatments and plantation shutters. This second home has been lightly used and well-maintained. You'll love the light-filled (and extended) Great Room w/ gas fireplace. The kitchen/breakfast room deliver upgraded stainless steel appliances, granite, luxurious cabinets, and a breakfast bar with pendant lighting. The huge 1st floor Master BD includes a sitting area bump-out, a large walk-in closet and lavish Master BA. There's a second first floor BD, a study that easily could act as a third BD (including beautiful custom cabinets and bookshelves), and another full BA. The first floor laundry includes washer & dryer, a sink, beautiful cabinetry and a shelf for supplies. Upstairs: another large BD & BA extended by a loft-like entry all with more beautiful wall treatments you seldom find outside of a super-well-appointed model homes. There's extra storage space upstairs too. And don't forget your outdoor living options: a beautiful screened-in porch with an outdoor deck right will bring enjoyment to owners and guests for three-plus seasons ever year with added privacy because you have only one next door neighbor out back. There's an irrigation system for your lawn. NOT IN A FLOOD ZONE. It would be impossible to match this home in Bay Forest new construction that could cost significantly more money as a new build while doubling your transfer tax. In BREAKING NEWS, you should know that the National Association of Home Builders Design Committee and the 2018 Best in American Living Awards named Bay Forest Club one of the top three communities in the United States (Single-Family Community, 100 Units & Up Category 43).
