The quiet, serene lifestyle in gated Caya Costa is quite unique in St Petersburg; a private living experience, in a smaller exclusive neighborhood. Lakes, birds, water views and water lifestyle, but secure from flooding and weather. Buried utilities and exceptional drainage systems maintain water and power during storms. Upon arrival to 1136 Tortuga Circle, the pavered circle drive and crafted mature landscape takes a few minutes to digest among the striking, but appealing architecture. Notice the pronounced clean lines of fenestration with a taste of Spanish style in the engraved window trim and classic clay barrel tile hip-shaped roof. No garage doors mar the front façade and the paver drive disappears behind the home to garage your luxury or vintage vehicle in 1 of 2, 2-car garages. A comprehensive renovation of this 2001 built home has just been completed. Consistent styling and professional craftsmanship require both time and patience to produce the finest details in this Caya Costa custom home. Perfectly meticulous selections of flooring, paint, cabinetry, hardware, appliances, fixtures and finishes complete each room with updated style that is subtle and harmonious. The entire home has been refloored with Anderson Tuftex’s Buckingham engineered hardwood: 8” White Oak Plank with a dark gray Edinburgh stain. It is stunning, spectacular and you will want to take your shoes and socks off immediately. But it’s unnecessary, because this is one of the most durable and resilient flooring products on the market. A couple of minutes upon entry spent to absorb the flooring selection, 12-Foot ceilings, crown and base molding, and then find the consistency throughout the home. Kitchen appliance updates include: New Thermador gas cooktop, New Thermador wall ovens, New Thermador Dishwasher, New disposals. Not all of the updates are visible: 2 Brand new AO Smith Signature Premier smart water heaters, New Hayward Heat Pump for spa, New thermostats, LED lighting, whole house water filtration, washable and UV air filtration systems, Garage motors, mosquito control system…nothing was left to untouched, no stone unturned. If this could be a home for you, do not miss this opportunity.
