Situated among the rolling green hills on Triple B Road near Greenwell Springs, the property at 13100 Triple B Road is a 12.8-acre nature preserve home to all manner of fowl, fish and deer. Oh, and there’s a 6,352-square-foot luxury home overlooking it all.
The listed property this week is actually part of a bigger tract that has a total of five ponds, one of which is a beautiful moss-draped cypress pond encompassed by the 12.8 acres that is for sale. The whole place makes a beautiful and tranquil setting on Triple B Road.
A winding, curving asphalt driveway takes visitors to up a double-wide aggregate concrete portico that provides rain-free entrance to the front doors of the home.
From there, an L-shaped hallway system takes you either straight back to the home’s living quarters or left to the kitchen, dining and public areas. No matter which way you go, the outdoor scenery takes center stage thanks to the tall windows throughout the residence.
The home sits atop a hill and has a rear porch and aggregate concrete deck that overlooks the pond. The owner reports that about 60 geese and flocks of wood ducks, egrets, herons, cormorants and grebes join the deer, beaver, turkey and squirrels that inhabit the landscape around the pond.
Although views are available from most areas of the home, the aggregate deck is the perfect outdoor vantage point for nature watching, and a vaulted great room in back of the home is best for indoor views.
The property, and the surrounding land and ponds, is immaculately landscaped, and has an irrigation system to keep things lush and green. It looks like it should be in a John Deere
tractor commercial, one where a
gentleman farmer is riding his shiny new tractor on some very pristine, green property. The home itself was built in 1977, but has been renovated and updated. There is also a 20-camera security camera system to keep watch over the property.
Brick is the primary flooring used, but wood is used in the kitchen, the home office and in the formal living room. The bedrooms and some other areas have carpet.
The master suite is at the end of the long hallway from the foyer, just past two bedrooms that share a Hollywood bath. Across from the two guest bedrooms is the home office, with excellent views of the pond and rear acreage.
The master bedroom is large with tall windows, and double doors lead into the marble master bath, a very long affair with a whirlpool tub, two vanities and a walk-in shower with two entrances. Two big closets across from the vanities have light-switched doors.
The kitchen features a pair of 3cm granite bars, one looking through the hallway’s wide French doors to the back porch, and one with a glass cook top that looks into the breakfast room. A tall, paneled SubZero matches the kitchen’s walnut cabinetry above travertine backsplashes. Appliances include a 50 lb. icemaker.
Behind the breakfast room is the home’s biggest surprise: a massive vaulted great room with exposed beams and a wall of windows to the pond paradise out back. This big room has a brick wall with a fireplace and wood box, and the best views of all. Upstairs are another bedroom and full bath, and a vaulted game room.
Finally, the home has four central air units, whole-house sound system, a whole-house intercom system, a two-car garage and a four-vehicle carport.
