986 Avila offers a unique opportunity for tranquility and privacy on over an acre of land. This custom home on a well-elevated, gated lot includes a barn/workshop and boating access on the ICWW with new 13,000-pound lift. Originally built by the owners of KingPost Design as their private residence, the home is designed and constructed for easy living. This home was renovated throughout in 2020, enhancing the already stunning look and feel with a gourmet kitchen featuring a large pantry, new custom cabinets, quartzite countertops, new windows, farm sink, high-end fixtures and hardware, and a custom range hood, as well as commercial appliances, including a six-burner gas range and 48'' refrigerator. New designer features include lighting, with a large Christopher Spitzmiller pendant in the dining area, as well as Barbara Barry and Aerin sconces, ceiling fans by Monte Carlo, and custom remote controlled window treatments. Additionally, this one-of-a-kind home features true post and beam construction and features mahogany and eucalyptus ceilings, 5'' maple floors, and ipe decks. Open concept with views of the ICWW in a private setting in a gated community. Just off the water, the home has a large wooden barn for wood working, storage, or entertaining and a boat slip and lift just steps away. The home is energy efficient and well insulated and includes solar panels that preheat the hot water, new LED task lighting, and new Lennox heat pumps with Ecobee smart thermostats. There is a generator in place for use as needed. The home is well maintained and beautifully landscaped.
