Welcome to Hidden Oaks, a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood situated near Lakewood Ranch, golf courses, white-sand beaches, schools, shopping, dining, and more. Crowning half an acre, this three-bedroom plus a den home offers the ideal blend of comfort, space, and serenity. Accommodating relaxation and entertaining with equal parts finesse, step inside to the immense living room with high ceilings, fireplace, and ample natural light. Well-equipped for preparing family meals, the kitchen offers every convenience with plenty of cabinet and counter space, breakfast bar, and built-in desk. The formal dining area is ideally located, equally open to the entry area and kitchen. Derive daily inspiration from the spacious master suite connecting to two walk-in closets, and luxurious bath. You’ll love the soaking tub with large frosted-glass window, Roman shower, and separate dual vanities. Family and guests will feel right at home in the two additional bedrooms – one of which offers sliding glass doors to the outdoors. The oversized screened lanai is truly an extension of the indoor living and sets the scene for morning cappuccinos or nightly escapes with a good book and a puppy. The yard has been carefully fenced-in, perfect for your four-legged friends or young ones who delight in running as fast as the wind. A well-equipped laundry room, three-car garage, and wide entry drive complete the picture. Hidden Oaks offers residents a community boat ramp and fishing pier – perfect for exploring the scenic Manatee River as it winds its way to the bay. The golf-enthusiast in the family will revel being so near an array of courses while I-75 and University Town Center are just a short drive away. Finally, no weekend would be complete without a daily adventure to the Gulf for soaking in the sun on white-sandy beaches. No need to worry about the big tickets items with a brand new A/C installed in 2021 and roof being installed prior to closing.
