This is a home is suitable for the requirements of the most discriminating guest! It is beautifully appointed with many original works of art and, overall, very tastefully decorated. The home boasts a beautiful open floor plan with cathedral ceilings. You will enjoy entertaining on the spacious lanai or just watching the boats passing by on the waterway to Pine Island Sound, a mere 5 minutes away by water. The lanais offer wonderfull views not only of the boats, but the myriad of birds that fly by, including flocks of ibis and the occassional spoonbills , not to mention the eagles, manatees and dolpin, that often move about in the waters.
The master bedroom, generously sized, offers dual showers and vanities with a walk out to the main floor lanai.
The upper third floor features a large bedroom, with its own screened in lanai and a separate open air lanai. The thrid room on the main floor, holds a sleeper sofa and is currently used as a separate living den.
The property is large enough to accomodate your car and boat which can be launched from the marina, less than five minutes away. Explore the trails through the local back waters of the mangroves, enjoy the variety of restaurants and visit the numerous art galleries in Matlache or Bookelia.
A golf course, tennis courts and junior olympic size pool complete with morning water aerobics are available nearby for your use. Fishing is outstanding in this area, even off of the dock. We can put you in touch with our favorite local fishing charter guide, who will bring you home with snapper, snook, redfish or grouper, depending on whats in season! Imagine grilling your caught fish on the lanai or if you prefer, take it to the local restaurant where they will cook it for a nominal fee for your enjoyment.
