About 8053 Porpoise Drive

This meticulously constructed 3-bed, 2-bath home has never been offered for sale, reflecting a distinctive blend of comfort and craftsmanship, built by a general contractor for his family. The house boasts of premium features including vinyl flooring, recent carpet, 8 ft ceilings, and impact-resistant upper doors and windows. The kitchen has an island and a gas stove. Each bedroom has window treatments. The master suite features a marble bathroom with a luxurious walk-in shower and heated towel bar, a walk-in closet, and a private entrance to the porch. The oversized porch provides additional living space and overlooks the tropical backyard. The property is surrounded by a 6 ft high privacy fence and features a lush, tropical landscape peppered with 5 different types of bamboo, pineapple, Barbados cherry, banana plants, guanabana, sugar apple trees, and lemongrass. The large lot offers room for a pool and has a covered parking area for four vehicles. This home has ample parking for multiple vehicles and a trailer, offers a workshop downstairs and is on 9ft stilts. It's designed with low-maintenance materials such as durable Hardi board siding, every joint is sealed and face nailed, a low-maintenance PVC railing, and stairs and porch made from 100% HDPE material. The house is enhanced by flood vents, the columns and tie beams are poured concrete, and exterior walls built with 2x6 with R-19 insulation and double sheeting. All structural framing and roof trusses are pressure treated lumber. The 2021 water heater with a heat recovery unit and a bilco hatch for convenient roof access testify to the attention to detail put into this home's construction. There is a boat ramp just up the street. A renewable termite warranty and an affordable, assumable flood policy will be transferred to the new owner, ensuring peace of mind. The owner's pride is evident throughout, making this property an opportunity to own a home built with care, diligence, and a commitment to quality.
