Have you been searching for a unique property? Something completely different from your neighbors? Are you praying for an amazing place to make your forever home? HALLELUJAH... your prayers have just been answered... IMAGINE LIVING IN A RELIGIOUS SANCTUARY! Constructed in 1928, complete with a large wooden cross on top of the bell tower, this recently acquired, magnificent piece of history has been completely re-imagined, custom furnished and transformed into a modern day architectural masterpiece. This showpiece property boasts many original details including 35 foot high oak tongue and groove ceilings all supported by AMAZING scissor trusses that you must see in person to appreciate their craftsmanship. The master suite occupies the former choir loft with dual staircases and a balcony overlooking the breathtaking great room. Two additional bedrooms and bathroom occupy a separate wing totally independent from the master suite with their own staircase! Dark oak hardwood floors throughout with a gourmet kitchen featuring all natural gas appliances, Jenn Air cooktop, double convection ovens, microwave, huge refrigerator, loads of cabinets and a 10 foot island! Additionally, there is a wet bar, wine fridge, laundry room and custom built home office overlooking the pool! Hurricane impact windows and doors throughout with 16 original stained glass windows, painstakingly built on site almost 100 years ago and now showcased as incredible works of art securely protected behind UV treated Lexan which is 250 times stronger than glass! Speaking of hurricanes, this home has a 24KW Generac natural gas whole house generator so power outages will never again be an issue. Beautiful PebbleTec salt water pool with sun shelf, waterfall and travertine decking, private side travertine patio and a 2 car garage with plenty of storage. All new, gorgeous, tropical landscaping surrounds this home coupled with concrete curbing and a brand new irrigation system on a well. Being sold fully furnished from Restoration Hardware, every piece fits the space perfectly, along with a brand new Steinway Essex player piano! This former Sanctuary has just been registered as a National Historical Preservation site so its lucky new proprietor will benefit from a $10k per year discount on taxes for the next 10 years... yes, that's $100,000 in tax savings! High and dry... no flood insurance needed.
