Situated on a scenic, salt-water, canal lot with quick access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, this magnificent home was built in 2002 and comes newly furnished, and features all the amenities you would expect for total comfort. Take a dip in the heated pool or enjoy breakfast on the lanai, all within a new screened enclosure for added comfort. Walk out to the dock and board your boat stored on the 10,000-pound boat lift and head out to Charlotte Harbor or the Gulf of Mexico for a day of fishing or a visit to historic Punta Gorda.
Once inside, relax under the vaulted cathedral ceilings with an open floor plan that includes a large, porcelain tiled, eat-in kitchen with breakfast bar area leading to a huge great room with cable television and surround sound speakers.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Hello from New Jersey. We are the Arico's, Jim and Diane.
Why the Owner Chose Port Charlotte: We purchased this salt water canal home in 2005. We are part of the baby boomer generation and have hopes in the near future of moving here, where the sun always seems to be shining, and the waters of Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico await the many cruises we'll take aboard our pleasure cruiser. We welcome you to come here to escape the harsh winters of the north and enjoy all that this area has to offer. You won't regret your decision.
