Property description

Detached house within a gated community. Landscaping throughout community is manicured to the highest levels. Everything is like new! 3 bedroom open concept home with a lanai where you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee. Top of the line appliances with Corian counter-tops throughout. The private yard backs onto protected forest where we have been visited by a family of deer.
Fully equipped. All you need to bring is your favorite book!
*** New as of Sep, 2015 - High quality Vermont Maple laminate flooring (no more carpeting) and freshly painted interior walls!

Something for all ages! Gated community where a 4 minute walk from the house along beautiful, well-maintained landscaped grounds takes you to the community center. You can enjoy a workout in a state of the art gym, treat yourself at the spa, play a game of tennis, go for a swim in the heated Olympic-sized pool, unwind in the hot tub surrounded by palm trees or go for a walk along the nature trail behind the pool area. You'll also find a full-size outdoor in-line skating rink, bocce court, basketball court, baseball diamond, movie theater, banquet room, library and computer room. There is an activity director on hand who organizes many activities such as yoga, zumba, NFL viewing events, ladies events, children activities, etc.
Rave reviews from previous guests. Several repeat visitors.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are Karen and Claude Gauthier. We have 3 wonderful children. This is our vacation home which we love to share with you.

Why the Owner Chose Venice, FL, USA:
Venice is the undiscovered gem of Florida. The center of town has a few blocks of historic landscape and unique little shops. The amenities is what attracted us the most. Everything is new and state of the art and always available. It's a wonderful community with a wide range of age groups. We make new friends with every visit. It was love at first site!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We play tennis most mornings followed by a nice swim in the pool and breakfast on the lanai. Downtown Venice is quaint, still in it's original format, not over-commercialized. We love to go window shopping there, stop for ice cream and go to Venice beach.
