Welcome to 5045 Birkdale Drive located in the 55+ golfing community of Highlands Ridge. This home comes beautifully furnished. This home was built in 2009 with custom detail by the original owners and has a very open and spacious floor plan. Walking up to the double tall leaded glass front doors you immediately notice the welcoming front porch and enter into a large foyer with the living room straight ahead. Beyond the living room is a bonus area with flexible space. This is currently used as the dining room but would make an ideal family room. A glass door open from the dining room to the brick paver screened lanai. Step on the lanai to a brick paver patio. This is an excellent feature to extend your living space when entertaining. The kitchen is to the right of the living room and includes a large breakfast area and pantry. The white cabinetry is stacked and has beadboard doors. A center island is great for food prep. To the left of the foyer is the laundry room with additional white cabinets. Step out of the laundry room into the two-car garage. The split floor plan has a spacious master suite. The large master bathroom has dual sink vanities, step-in shower, linen closet and a compartment for the toilet. The guest bedroom and hall bathroom are direct to the right of the foyer upon entering and have a pocket door closing off the hall from the foyer for your guest's privacy. There is an office/den adjacent to the living room. This space will make a third bedroom if need with a sleeper sofa. The home is loaded with upgrades including hardwood floor, plantation shutters, and crown molding. Surround sound throughout was recently installed. The villa section has a private pool separate from the community. Highlands Ridge has lots to offer with two championship golf courses, tennis, clubhouse, community pools and a boat dock at the lake. Some say this is Highlands County's version of The Villages! Come take a look today!
