Rotonda Sands house description

Our house was just completed in November 2012.
The house features an open floor plan that includes the main entry, kitchen, dining area and two large living spaces all with views of the pool area.
The fully equipped kitchen has island seating, granite countertops, new maple cabinets, and a new side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water. The one living area houses a Samsung 55' flat screen with Direct TV satellite service and the other living area is more suited for conversational seating.

The master suite is very large with sliding doors to the pool area, a king bed, TV with satellite service, two closets, and private bath. The master bath features an onyx countertop with two sinks, a large oval tub, and tiled shower with glass doors.

The other side of the home has two bedrooms with a bath in between. The one bedroom has a king bed and other has a queen bed. The bathroom has a combination tiled shower and tub.

Their is also a den with a half bath. The den has a futon which can be used to make this room an extra bedroom. We have a computer and printer in this room with Centurylink DSL internet service. The service also includes a wireless router.

There is a large garage and a laundry area. The laundry has new front load washer and dryer.

The heating swimming pool is set up as a sport pool. The deepest part is in the middle and is approximately 5' and tapers on both sides to shorter depths. Their is a sitting ledge in the pool with jets and steps with a railing to enter the pool. We have a volleyball net, posts, and ball for fun in the pool. The area has a large lanai with a sitting table with four chairs and also several lounges and Adirondack chairs. The pool faces southwest for views of the sunset and countryside. There are several other houses on the main street fronting the house. The pool faces a large part of the Rotonda Sands development which has been cleared and has roads, but no houses yet. This actually give the house stunning far reaching views from the pool area.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About the owner: We currently reside in Erie, Pennsylvania. We have two kids. Our son is a high school senior and daughter is a junior. We hope to move to Florida once are kids get into college. We do a little construction and remodeling on the side.

          Why the Owner Chose Rotonda Sands:
          We bought this home on a short sale. It was largely unfinished. Stucco on the outside, but no painting or pool. The plumbing and wiring was done in the walls only and the house was drywalled. We planned to flip the house. In the end we put much nicer amenities into it and aren't sure what our plans are for it. The pool and lanai, kitchen, and master bath are areas we got carried away with. We hope this makes the house a great seasonal rental for now.
