Private Homes, Southwest house description

This immaculate 1,450 square foot pool home in the exact center of Cape Coral was completely renovated inside and out in 2013. While the neighborhood is quiet and serene, all the amenities are just minutes away. Whether your thing is the largest water park in Southeastern Florida a couple miles from home; the world-famous beaches of Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers or the shops and galleries in Naples and Punta Gorda, there is something for everyone. Wildlife abounds all around you. Take a tour of a Cyprus swamp and watch wild alligators only a few feet away from the safety of a mini bus. Dine on one of the endless waterways and watch dolphins at dusk. Walk along miles of sandy beach and fill your pockets with beautiful shells just waiting to be discovered. Come find out why Cape Coral is one of the most desirable vacation destinations in Florida!

Furnishings are simple, but homey. Ceiling fans in every room keep you cool and comfortable while the vaulted ceiling in the main living space lends a touch of elegance. The open floor plan leads to a fully-equipped kitchen with brand new appliances and a breakfast bar. The master bedroom boasts a brand new king-sized gel-topped bed, a private full bath and flat-screen T.V. And just imagine floating in the screened-in, brand new heated pool day or night while the burgers are on the grill!

Whether you are a group of family and friends or a couple looking to get away from it all to a place where you can do it all or do nothing at all, this lovely charmer will make you feel right at home.

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About: We purchased this adorable house as a retreat from all things stressful with the ultimate goal of moving permanently some day. Furnished with color and fun in mind, we wanted to create a comfortable place to relax. We are 'empty nesters' with 5 grandchildren. We have found that the warmth of Florida's sun and floating in our very own pool is the perfect remedy for New England winters and we decided to make that available to you when we are not enjoying it ourselves. We decided to purchase a house that was completely gutted and rebuilt with an entirely brand new interior. But the additional of the pool left the yard without landscaping. Because we do not live there, we cannot at this time plan the kind of landscaping we would like and have the necessary irrigation system installed. So, even though the house does not look like much from the outside, behind the front door it is like Dorothy opening the door from her black and white world and stepping into the beautiful world of Oz for the first time. Since you will be enjoying the house on the inside, we hope you will not mind.

              Why Private Homes, Southwest:
              Our house is perfectly situated in a wonderful little community. We are in the exact center of Cape Coral. In fact, the Mid-Cape shopping center,where you can buy your groceries,is only a couple miles away. The neighborhood is deceptively quiet and serene. One would never imagine that only a few miles away there would be - well - everything you could want or need! Within 5 miles, there is an award-winning water park; a huge bowling complex; casual, nicer and fancy restaurants serving cuisines from all over the world; places to go kayaking, fishing, bicycling - the list is endless. A 1/2 hour drive will take you to historic Punta Gorda, shell-collecting on beautiful Sanibel or on safari for alligators at the Babcock Wilderness Adventure Center! Hop on the ferry in Ft. Myers and be in Key West in 3.5 hours. There is no end to the activities you can enjoy or just float in the pool and enjoy the warm sunshine.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We knew the minute we walked in that this was the home for us. It had such a sweet homey feel and the pool was so inviting. Having been just completely renovated, every single aspect of the home was brand new and immaculate. We loved the vaulted ceiling and the ceiling fans that made it feel tropical and comfortable.
