Property description

'Florida White' is the theme throughout our charming villa built in 2003 on a sprawling large double lot in the desirable deed restricted communiuty of Rotonda Lakes. A relaxed, comfortable beach house atmosphere only a few blocks away from the Rotonda Circle. Boaters-access the multitude of canals in South Gulf Cove, Interceptor Lagoon, the Myakka River, Charlotte Harbor & the Gulf of Mexico from our backyard fish/boating pier! Bring your boat or rent one. 120 feet on the Butterford Waterway, this is the only canal in Rotonda where you have access to salt water. All the other waterways simply go around in a 20 mile circle leading nowhere. Cruise the waterways or fish the salt waters of Charlotte Harbor where the 'World Tarpon Tournament' is held each year. Catch many tasty species of fish including red fish, snappers,tilapia, snook, flounder makerel, shark, cobia, grouper to name a few. Watch for the playful dolphins & hippo-like manatees in the harbor. For the golf enthusiast, we have 5 local courses in Rotonda, Eighteen & nine holes. Four new mountain bikes/helmets available for your recreation pleasure. The county has developed the old southern railway right of way into a scenic macadam covered 'hike' or 'bike' trail which leads directly south towards the beaches of Gasparilla & Boca Grande or north to the nearby Publix sparkling clean shopping mall. 16+ miles of natural beauty through the surrounding area with many lakes, canals & safe roadways. The Cape Haze trail intersects Bay Tree Drive about 2-3 blocks east. We are minutes away from the pristine white sand beaches of Gasparilla Island, Boca Grande, Englewood and Manasota Keys. Miles of beaches to choose from - picnic & shower facilities as well - No traffic jams!
Wildlife? Yes, at the local tiki bars as well as in our backyard! On rare occasions, a handsome seemingly tame, bearded bobcat visits - we are quite happy to have a chain-linked fence around our lanai & property! Our bird feeder attracts all sorts of colorful exotic species. The waterway is full of fish, unusual ducks, cranes, egrets, pelicans and turtles.Towards evening you might have the fortune of spotting 'Curious George' off our well lit pier. At times you feel as if you're at one of those safari theme parks!!! At the end of a busy fun filled day you are thankful to return to the solace & relaxation that our villa provides. Your master bedroom has a king bed, 2 large dressers, 2 nightstands, a variable speed ceiling fan, an armoire with a TV entertainment center, walk-in closet, attached bath with tiled shower, his & her sinks, and one of 3 sets of slider glass doors that lead to our totally secluded lanai and lighted private pool.
