Port Charlotte house description

A piece of paradise is awaiting you in this private scenic setting between Sarasota and Ft. Myers. Our 2000 square foot 3 bedroom 2.5 bath beauty is situated on an amazing saltwater canal with gulf access through Charlotte Harbor. The magnificent home was built in 2003, with 12 foot ceilings, many upgrades and comes newly furnished.

Enjoy beautiful sunrises overlooking the canal via the enclosed lanai or sit on your own private dock. Once finished with the morning sun, you can take a dip in the heated pool or spa. You can also try your hand at fishing in the canal.

Then, head inside and enjoy your two splendid sitting areas both with their own plasma TV's and DVD players. Also, you can relax anywhere in the house while you use the wireless internet and surround sound system.

The house comes complete with a master suite that includes a king bed, walk in closet, soaking tub and a marvelous Roman shower. There are also two other wonderful bedrooms that have queen beds. In the living areas, you can also comfortably sleep six or more on the two queen sleeper sofas and love seats.

We haven't forgotten those of you who enjoy a formal evening of wining and dining. Enjoy the fine dining area especially decorated for those splendid evenings. There is also a wine cooler located in the house which would be perfect for that special occasion. Or, you can relax and eat informally at the large eat-in area and bar in the kitchen.

South Gulf Cove is conveniently located between Sarasota and Ft. Myers. It is only minutes to gorgeous white sand beaches that are full of numerous activities. Shelling, snorkeling, boating, beach combing and kayaking are some of the activities within minutes of your doorstep. The Cape Haze Peninsula is also home to the Tarpon and Snook capital of the world - Boca Grande - which is within a ten minute drive. There are numerous and wonderful eateries, golf courses (seven within five minutes) and shopping districts within a short drive.

Central air conditioning, as well as weekly pool and lawn services are provided. Pool heating is provided with the rental rate in the winter months. The house comes equipped with an alarm system as well as an intercom system. The house is also accommodated with a laundry room.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: We are a group of friends who chose to purchase a property in one of our favorite destinations. South Gulf Cove is close enough to area amenities, but secluded enough to call "your private piece of paradise." Area amenities include great golfing, tennis, shopping, fine dining, entertainment and more are all close at hand. Residents also enjoy fun in the sun at nearby Englewood Beach or the secluded Boca Grande for swimming, shelling, sunning, picnics, jet skiing and all other outdoor activities.

              Why the Owner Chose Port Charlotte:
              The Cape Haze Peninsula has some of the most pristine beaches that Florida has to offer - without the overcrowding. The Peninsula has no high rises, friendly locals, family owned restaurants and low traffic; this is "Old Florida." We decided to buy in the South Gulf Cove area because it is centrally located to the beaches, restaurants, golf courses and shopping. There are numerous activities within a 10-15 minute drive (7 golf courses, parks, beaches, shopping, arcades). South Gulf Cove is also a short drive to Sarasota and Ft. Myers; so you are never more than 30-45 minutes away from an airport.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              One of the main aspects of our property that we enjoy is the overall privacy you receive when at the property. With only one neighbor, you don't have to worry about noise or interruptions; but you can drive five miles and be at a grocery store/gas station/restaurant or fast food. Being on a gulf access canal, you can rent a boat and have access to the canals, rivers and the Gulf of Mexico. This area is known for being the Snook and Tarpon capital of the world - so make sure to bring your fishing gear! You can even fish right off the back of the property on your private dock. We have stocked the property for long and short stays. You don't have to worry about bringing linens, utensils or pool toys - they are all there for you. You can also sleep peacefully; we provide ADT security for the property. The pool and hot tub provide a wonderful place to escape and relax. You will find that you won't want to leave the property once you arrive!
