Inside the Home – Upgrades are everywhere
The first thing you notice as you enter this home is the beautiful porcelain plank tile and how great it looks against the neutral tones of the freshly painted interior. Then, looking straight ahead gives you a great view of the main Waterways lake and the saltwater pool through the sliding glass doors. There are other little details like the crown moulding and new light fixtures that just make this feel a step above the other properties you may see at the same price.
One of the things I noticed and loved right away the first time I saw the home was the wainscoting in the dining room. I see so many homes where they’re empty and the walls are just bare, textured walls from floor to ceiling. I’m a sucker for wainscoting anyway but this was really well done.
The kitchen is to the right and has some really nice white cabinetry but the real stars are the counter and backsplash. The counter is epoxy and has these grey veins that look great against the tile backsplash. Plus, look at the beautiful light fixtures! There are newer stainless steel appliances as you’d expect and there’s a deep kitchen sink as well. The kitchen also has bar seating for three for casual meals.
The family room has surround sound speakers that the seller will leave for the buyer and the room has plenty of space for a sectional sofa. The wall mount stays so you can easily hang your television without the wires hanging down. This one is done right! There are sliders that lead outside to the saltwater pool as well.
I really love the master bedroom pictured above. There is a beautiful tray ceiling and you get lots of natural light from the sliders that lead to the pool & lanai. The picture doesn’t do it justice since it was taken from in the room and doesn’t show the full size of the master bedroom. But, have a look at that master bath!
I mentioned before that both bathrooms were remodeled. Well, take a look at the master bath! There’s a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Of course there are dual vanities with lots of storage as well as an enormous, framed mirror.
Outside the Home – Pool, Lanai, Pergola and Lake
We have to start with the open-air saltwater pool. It’s a really good-sized pool and overlooks the huge lake. There’s a non-slip surface too that is easily maintained or cleaned.
The best part about the pool deck though is that the portion that is covered/shaded is huge and ready for entertaining. It is wired for cable so you can put a nice TV out there and enjoy it from the pool! It’s worth mentioning too that the lanai is protected with accordion shutters for hurricane protection.
If you’re ready to entertain or just relax by the lake, you’ll love the covered pergola. It sits right near the pool and is awesome for relaxing on cool Florida evenings. There’s a fire pit that comes with it as well. If I lived here, I’d be out at that pergola quite a bit!
See the canoe and boat to the left of the picture above? Those are included in the sale so you can really enjoy the lake. Waterways of Naples allows boats with electric motors so you can cruise around and fish for bass at your leisure. Just slide them into the water and off you go!
Final Thoughts on 3385 Mystic River Drive
There are a lot of great features that I just couldn’t fit into the article. For instance, did you know the full backyard and side yard are fenced in for your pets? There are so many of those little things that make this house stand out amongst the competition. You’re buying a house with a brand new roof that you won’t have to worry about, the painting has been done, the remodeling is complete, and you’re in one of the best neighborhoods in the area with great amenities. Top-rated schools are walking distance from the home and did you know there is a boat and RV storage lot so you can live in the neighborhood and have your toys close by for a low rental fee?
You need to see this one in person! Please feel free to contact Laney Farrugia or I to set up a private showing.
