Property description

We have an 800 square foot 'lock off' apartment on the first floor of our Estate Home. Share breathtaking views from the second floor 1100 square foot wraparound porch overlooking a manicured park like setting and new saltwater pool and deck.

Join a multitude of birds and squirrels who also share the front porch providing endless entertainment for nature lovers. Move to the back porch to enjoy the views of the lake, pool and deck or sit in the hot tub and watch the herons, hawks and the occasional eagle fly through the 2 acre back yard with a bass pond which is sought out by the local otters from time to time. Plenty of room for your boat or RV.

The property is covered with numerous palms, pine, oak and moss covered cypress trees, to name just a few, providing the perfect backdrop to beautiful sunsets. The Six Mile Cypress Slough is a few minutes walk from the house.

The first bedroom is nicely furnished with a Dual Control Sleep Number Queen bed, dresser, Prism TV/DVD player and large closet.

The second bedroom is set up as a comfortable sitting room complete with a leather rocker/recliner, sitting chair, day bed and a 32 inch flat screen TV equipped with High Definition Century Link Prism which also provides high speed internet.

The efficiency kitchen is admittedly small but has an 18 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer, microwave, sink and a small oven with two burners. Sorry, but there is no dishwasher. Baby boomers should still remember how to wash dishes by hand.

The laundry room is shared with the owner and has a Duet front loading washer and dryer as well as a closet for pantry items, etc. There is one full bathroom with a shower/tub.

The Florida room features a wall of glass windows overlooking the gorgeous front yard. The circular dining table/chairs and two rockers take full advantage of the views.

We have just added a 24 foot, 13,500 gallon saltwater pool. The raised composite deck is the perfect place to enjoy the views of the pool, pond and lush landscaping.

Lastly, our rates are all on a nightly basis for a one week minimum. However, we are happy to consider offers for extended stays.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Paula and I have always loved two story Key West Style homes with their wraparound porches but didn't want to move to the Islands where they are prevalent. We finally found this beautiful 2.5 acres in 1993 and knew it would be perfect for our dream home. We completed the home the following year and as our children are grown and gone, would like to share it's beauty with others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to sit on the second story porches and visit with friends, swapping jokes and stories. As we have lived in Fort Myers since 1979, coming from Indiana, we can offer insights to the Gold Coast of Florida. My best friend calls our home, Shangra La, for good reason. We are also Dog lovers and welcome any visitor with canines under 25 pounds.
