As you enter this gated estate in Alachua Highlands, it is evident why it is called “Enchanted Oaks.” Massive oak trees and impressive landscaping dot the property and frame the exquisite two-story residence. Although the design is rooted in history, the house boasts every modern convenience, including a new kitchen and a 2020 roof. A circular drive leads to the front of the house with 3-car garage (4140 sq. ft) and continues on to a detached 4-car garage with an upstairs apartment (1234 sq. ft). Enter the main house through a leaded glass door into an expansive foyer. The 2-story great room has a double-sided gas fireplace, shared with the kitchen, and French doors leading to the screen porch. The formal dining room features a crystal chandelier, decorative moldings, and an adjacent butler’s pantry. The stunning kitchen has a large central island, quartz countertops, glass tile backsplash, wood cabinets, and SS KitchenAid appliances as well as a spacious breakfast area with French doors to the screen porch. The first-floor owner’s suite has two spacious walk-in closets leading to the bathroom, which features dual vanities, jetted tub, separate shower, and private water closet. A second downstairs bedroom has an adjacent study/sitting area and access to a full bath. A sweeping staircase leads to the second floor, with a balcony overlooking the great room. The upstairs has two large bedrooms, each with double closets. One bedroom connects to a light-filled study/workspace and additional storage. The upstairs bath has a spacious vanity and separate tub/shower area. The laundry room, with LG washer/dryer, is tucked between the kitchen and the attached 3-car garage. The garage has vinyl tile floors, paddle fans, several closets and a full bath that also serves the pool. From here, a stairway leads up to a bonus room with high ceiling, ample space for a pool table and sitting areas and a separate room with wet bar lined with cabinets, perfect for your party food, as well as a convenient half bath. A screen porch runs along the back of the house, which opens to a brick paved patio, with a sports pool combining a lap lane, water features and an area for volley or basketball. The pool area also includes a built in firepit. The air conditioned detached 4-car garage has vinyl tile floors, paddle fans, an office, full bathroom and kitchen complete with refrigerator, sink, cooktop and microwave. The spacious second floor apartment has wood floors, dormers and half-moon windows that add architectural interest and bring natural light into the area. The kitchen has granite counters, refrigerator, a glass cooktop and microwave. The bedroom suite, with magnificent views of the property, includes a large walk-in closet. An adjoining bathroom has a vanity with granite top, shower and a closet with washer/dryer hookup. The apartment also has extensive storage areas. Behind the detached garage is a RV carport, complete with electric service. A large pole barn with electricity and a workshop area, plus a romantic gazebo, large enough for dining table, finish out the property. The lush landscaping includes tropical plants, flowering shrubs, fruit trees and hardwoods. The yard is completely fenced with an irrigation system, paver-lined paths and extensive outdoor lighting. This residence personifies gracious country living, just a short distance to shopping, the University of Florida and the rich cultural life that Gainesville offers.
