I Heart My Home: A Unique Florida Abode

Mary Waldeck
SunState Realty, LLC
Englewood, Fla.

Waldeck’s home has the coolest features — the kind that she hopes will fetch nearly $460,000. Waldeck and her husband have their sweet custom-built Florida spot on the market with that price tag, and it’s easy to see why they’re asking that much.

“What I love most about our home is simply how unique it is,” Waldeck says. “There are many architectural features in this custom home you do not find in typical production homes, such as the floating staircase with wrought iron railing, designer ceilings, and his-and-her garages.”

The home has a wide-open floor plan, so much so that you can “see the entire house while standing in one spot — except for the private areas, of course,” she explains. The home sits alongside a saltwater canal, and it has a boat lift. All of that is outdone, though, by the two-story swimming pool that Waldeck’s granddaughters love.

“The best part of living here is how it suits the Florida lifestyle we love,” Waldeck says.

So why sell? “Of course, knowing us real estate folk, for the right price, it’s for sale!”

Send us a video tour of your home, and show us why you’re proud of it! Here’s how.
