You will love the virtual rainbow of colorful plantings in the botanical wonderland complete with waterscapes and iron fencing surrounding this immaculate two-story home in Diamondhead. The home offers complete living on the main floor with 3 bedrooms & 2 baths; and the lower level offers a fantastic mother-in-law suite with a second kitchen, bathroom and no-step walk-out to a private covered patio and garage. Features of this proper residence include light and airy spacious rooms, vaulted beamed ceilings with skylights, brick gas fireplace, tons of creamy cabinetry, beautiful granite counters, modern laminate flooring, fantastic sunroom, custom Hunter Douglas shear shades, loads of storage space, basement workshop with golf-cart roll-up door, double-car garage, whole-house music/intercom system, and much more. A beautiful iron and brick pillar fence lines the front of the property with a gated-entry, and a taller black chain-link fence lines the back yard protecting the flower and vegetable gardens from the neighboring wildlife. It's like having the best of both worlds here with morning views of a family of deer that walk the wooded pathways along the edge of the property, yet they don't steal all of the colorful plantings.

Situated in the beautiful 2,300-acre gated resort community at Diamondhead of well-kept homes, manicured lawns, and friendly neighbors who provide you with a way of life you might have thought had disappeared. Diamondhead is the place of the future, where golf course living is still affordable. If you love a nice drive through the country, viewing the beautiful colors in the fall, the smell of the flowering trees in the spring, and a frequent glimpse of deer and natural wildlife... you'll absolutely love driving home to this beautiful home that's ready & waiting for you. The community features a clubhouse, olympic-sized pool, lighted tennis & basketball court, kids' playground, golf course, picnic areas, boat ramp & marina, an 18 hole golf course, a practice putting green, driving range, and a pro shop. It is situated near Lake Catherine with almost 2000 acres of beautiful waters & 11 miles of shoreline, and bordered by Lake Catherine State Park. The whole community lies in 2 counties - Hot Spring County & Garland County.

It's a very special home available now at a very special price.
