Welcome to friendly, activity-packed Paradise Island 55+ community! This home shines and sparkles, is new to the market and has everything you could possibly ask for. At just over 1,400 sq. ft plus an additional over 240 sq. ft. of a finished Florida room makes this home very large, filled with modern tasteful upgrades and is in outstanding condition. The park itself is full of activities and amenities for those seeking an active lifestyle with friendly neighbors or for those that want to take time to enjoy the easy, coastal lifestyle that Pinellas County has to offer. The very affordable maintenance fee of $363.00 per month includes your water, sewer, lawn, garbage, cable and internet...yes, it’s true!


Enter your front door and prepare to be amazed as you walk into the light-filled and spacious family room with its vaulted ceilings. Note the beautiful pale wood colored laminate flooring that is in the front of the home and extends thru the hallway. The neutral color of the textured walls and the light flooring only heighten the open and airy feel of the home. The tasteful crown molding that is throughout the home adds a nice finishing touch to every room. From the family room you will see your separate dining area with its impressive chair rail, two-tone paint and modern chandelier. This home comes partially furnished. (A list of the items that will remain will be provided upon request.) Walk straight into your large kitchen that has newer appliances, gorgeous wood cabinets, sink overlooking the outside and large windows. All of these amazing features make this space the perfect area for the chef in your home. On top of all of that, this kitchen has a great eat-in breakfast area to read the paper, have your coffee and plan the day’s activities. Moving down the hallway, you have your ample-sized guest room with a magnificent guest bath. This bathroom was completely updated in 2020 and is stunning. Every item looks straight from a designer’s notebook, all in sophisticated gray tones– lighting, countertops, cabinet, gorgeous tile floor and matching tile walk-in shower. The master suite is cavernous, so much space! Vaulted ceilings and the en suite bathroom make it the perfect oasis. The master bathroom is not to be believed – also completely remodeled in 2020. It offers dual sinks and vanities, a separate make-up space, loads of cabinet space for all your toiletries and linens. Fabulous tile floors and tiled walk-in shower with ample room to store all of your shower necessities. An added unique feature of the master bathroom is a cushioned window seat that has a lovely stain glass pattern on the window – truly charming! But the amazing features of this home continue; from the kitchen you have another area that is unique to this home - an area that is a combination office/laundry space. It houses the inside full-size washer and dryer and office space. Continue through the trendy barn door and enter your 11x22 Florida room that offers extra lounging and entertaining options. It is an exceptional addition to the home. The room is drywalled and has its own separate A/C unit. This space can also be accessed directly from the driveway if you choose to enter your home from this direction. So many options!


Pristine vinyl siding surrounds the home. The lovely dark green cloth awnings and matching green front door with glass insert are impressive upgrades, only adding to the value and appeal of the home. Best of all, the expensive items that tend to be of concern to discerning buyers have already been taken care of. The home has a roofover that was installed in 2016, new double-pane windows throughout the home, a brand-new water heater and A/C unit installed this year in 2022! The asking price of this jewel of a home is $179,900. If you are unfamiliar with the Largo area let me introduce you to one of the great areas of Pinellas County. The location of this community within Largo could not be better. There are two large parks nearby which boast a fabulous two-story library, walking and biking opportunities – the Pinellas Trail – all within a few miles. Combine what the town offers, along with what Paradise Island community offers: water aerobics, Mahjong, billiards, dances, computer club and the list goes on - you have truly landed in Paradise!
