8647 BETTY ST, Port Richey, FL. COASTAL PARADISE! Built like a fortress but with a heartwarming soul! The location of this home was carefully chosen by the owner to provide **GULF ACCESS and an extreme sense of serenity**. Betty is perfectly nestled in **2.5 ACRES of an exquisite natural environment** where visitors include American Bald Eagles, Osprey, and even Pink Flamingos. No cost or corner was cut in the construction of this amazing home built of entirely **Block-Concrete and Steele** with a 17' Elevation featuring blow-away walls and detached concrete slab - a Tsunami couldn't bring Betty down! Hurricane protections would suffice 240-mile per hour winds! If there is ever a CAT-5 Storm coming to Tampa, I'm going to 8647 Betty Street! Inside you will find the warmest and most inviting atmosphere with oak wood floors, wood beam ceilings, and views to LIVE for! The floorplan was designed for large gatherings featuring a 'kings like' formal dining room, large living room, and large family room with vaulted ceiling. The kitchen is the heart of the home and is just a few steps from the balcony french doors. With the back of the home facing west - you will be awarded each day with **breathtaking sunsets**! Each guest bedroom offers peaceful **views of the Lake/Bayou**. The impressive Master Suite is secluded on the upper floor making it a **true retreat complete with large jacuzzi tub**. The base of the home is a workman's (or woman's) paradise with over **2000 square feet of garage and workshop** space. The main garage will fit two large vehicles, bay #2 would fit an additional two vehicles and, bay #3 is a GIANT workshop area (think Home Gym|Boat Repair Area|Woodworking|) complete with its own full bathroom. There is even a 2-car tandem carport for storing your outdoor recreational toys (think Boat|Cannoes|Kayaks). The owner understood that carrying groceries and suitcases up the front steps could be daunting so he added an **electronic lift that can hold 1000 pounds** - it can even be used to transport people who don't like stairs! The lift motor and concrete slab base could support a wheelchair size platform. This area of Port Richey is such a treasure as well. *Brasher Park is just 1.3 miles away (you can ride your bike there!) OR (Canoe or Kayak there!). The *Port Richey Water Front Park is only .8-miles and our favorite *Nick's Park and Boat Ramp is just 1-mile from home!
