This large open concept home offers 2100 square feet of luxury living combined with an unique character and upscale style. The home itself is located in the South West area of Cape Coral near Cape Harbour. This is one of the best locations in Cape Coral as it is close to all amenities and some very nice restaurants. The home itself has been recently extensively renovated and presents as a new home. The home which offers 3 large bedrooms and two luxury bathrooms features beautiful Turkish marble floors throughout. The home's kitchen is a dream to cook in or entertain from. It features high quality cherry wood cabinetry, a one of a kind imported granite countertop, and a full range of stainless steel top of the line Kitchen Aid appliances which include a professional level duel fuel range and ventilation system, a built in 42 inch refrigeration unit, a second built in wall oven and microwave, a warming drawer, and a fully stocked built in wine refrigerator. To temp our guests even further, the kitchen is equipped with professional level Lagostina cookware. Further to all of this, the home features two living areas. The first living area is decorated with a Stephen Todd leather sofa, two Ethan Allen Colin chairs, a wonderful hand loomed carpet, bright uplifting original artwork and high quality antiques. While relaxing here, one can become totally enveloped in the audio visual system which features a 70 3 D inch Sharp HDTV and a high performance NAD / Martin Logan theatre sound surround system. In the second living area, one can simply just relax and enjoy the view of the pool area or watch the fish jump in the water beyond. This area features two designer chosen Ethan Allen Colin chairs and a colourful hand loomed carpet. In addition, for your listening pleasure, this area also features a NAD stereo system with upscale Rogers speakers. To light these two living areas, the home owners have chosen original 1930's chandeliers and art deco lighting. Each of the home's bedrooms feature either King or Queen sized beds complete with luxury linens. Each bedroom has a different style, and of course different era antiques. The third bedroom features two queen size beds and a 42 inch HDTV which can be used for XBox gaming. The master bedroom's ensuite features a free standing whirlpool tub with independent heater and a very large walk in shower experience. The second bathroom also features a large walk in shower. Both of these bathrooms feature solid Mahogany vanities and upscale faucets. Last but not least, the home is located on a scenic 200 ft. wide canal which is only a short distance by water from the Gulf of Mexico. There is nothing better than sitting in the lanai or splashing around in the pool surrounded by palm trees and a wonderful view of the water. If you wish to get a better view of the water, there is a second sitting area canal side. This area features wicker recliners and a large sun umbrella to keep you cool. This home will certainly make your Florida stay a special experience which will soon not be forgotten.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Del and I are avid travellers who love to spend time aboard and enjoy the little luxuries of life.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Southwest: We purchased this property in 2011 as we wanted a home in the eternal sunshine of Florida. The property was a bit of a wreck and as a result, this gave us the opportunity to 'put our stamp' on the home. We love stone and as one can see, we have featured it throughout the home. We have tried to make it a comfortable home away from home with the little luxuries of life thrown in.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This home is not your typical Florida vacation home. Initially everything in the home is of a very high standard, from Turkish marble floors, to hand woven rugs, to the luxury professional level appliances and yes, even the faucets. However, the home is more than that, as it expresses an certain individuality which is conveyed to our guests through its many art deco antiques and lively original paintings. This home has a personality which hopefully will stimulate our guests and well as entertain and luxuriate them.
