Enter the gates of the 6300-Forest community and you are greeted by the beauty of nature and fine architecture. A striking pond, often with ducks and other beautiful birds, is the centerpiece of the community. The pond is surrounded by a greenbelt, a stone wall, and waterfront homes of modern and Mediterranean styles. A beautiful stone bridge connects the front half of the neighborhood to the rear cul-de-sac and a circular island designed for guest parking. This is a neighborhood that embraces modern and contemporary architecture. 17 Winding Lake Drive is of impeccable modern design, full of amenities, impressive finishes, and intended for low-maintenance and easy living. It is a dream for those who want to be surrounded by exclusive beauty, the best of luxuries, plenty of space for entertaining and family, and the security of a gated community. The home is optimally situated to maximize the use of space: Low maintenance on the exterior yet plenty of outdoor spaces for enjoying cool mornings, warm afternoons, and breezy evenings, plus the floorplan is thoughtfully laid out so there is no unused space. The drive up appeal will leave lasting impressions for guests. Greeted by double custom front doors designed of steel and glass, and a gorgeous entry flanked by a handsome library and views of artful formal living spaces. The natural light and abundant windows provide a cheerful and inspiring atmosphere. Our favorite feature is the fabulous floating staircase, which leads up to three guest bedrooms and a private home theater - WOW. Due to the downstairs master bedroom, this home easily offers a single-story lifestyle, plus an elevator provides access upstairs. The kitchen is at the heart of the home and is perfectly designed for entertaining and gathering with a large island, openness to casual living spaces, access to a separate wet bar for serving, plus walls of glass overlooking and accessing the patios and pool. Pristine, warm, contemporary, plus commercial appliances with all the extras: a large wine refrigerator to display your wine collection, double ovens, double dishwashers, and a chef’s Wolf range. The kitchen has lean lines and feels like new. Master bedroom is downstairs. The hallway to the master bedroom is tucked behind a convenient wet bar that overlooks the den and pool beyond. It is private, yet convenient, and flows from a private outdoor patio with sliding glass doors past the fireplace, sitting area, king bed, then through double doors to a spa-like bath with luring soaking tub, separate shower, lots of counter space, natural light, and a wall of mirrors. The master closet is a large room with custom storage features for optimal use of overhead spaces. A back door leads to a private study for bill-paying and/or audio-visual components. Impressive layout! The attached garage connects by way of a utility and mud room with sink, built-ins, and extra counter space. The garage is oversized so there is a workbench and storage solutions for sports equipment in addition to your two cars. Are you looking for a sophisticated modern home in gated community?
