Property description

We've enjoyed visiting Venice for many years and decided to purchase a beautiful golf course condo. The area offers a great mix of city amenities, including the Venice Theater, a YMCA, access to excellent healthcare, while providing a relaxing feel of a small beach resort town. Venice has great shopping, excellent seafood restaurants and top notch recreation facilities. Our condo is located in the meticulously landscaped Plantation Golf & Country Club community. Many more high quality and affordable golf courses are nearby.

Our west facing lanai and patio provides a wide vista that overlooks a small lake on the Bobcat course. It's a fantastic place to watch a variety of tropical birds (and play 'find the alligator') over breakfast or anytime. The nature opportunities of the local State Parks and bird aviary are incredible and the beaches are World Class. One of our favorite activities is walking the beach, soaking up the sunshine as the gulf breeze and sea sounds sweep over us. Yes, we are a little shark's tooth crazy. We've even had some fantastic luck hunting for them at night by flashlight!

We live in Ohio and work full time hoping that some year in the future, we will be able to retire to our 'Ibis Paradise'. Because we expect to live there, we decided to incorporate high quality materials in the condo's renovation project. You'll find granite sink tops (dual sinks in the master), new raised vanities, all new faucets, new quiet and effective bathroom fans, increased lighting, new high quality shower doors and a beautiful new walk-in tiled shower in the master bathroom. We even purchased the taller, more comfortable, toilets for each bath. Other improvements include new high quality wall-to-wall carpeting in both bedrooms, new vertical blinds and new paint on the walls and ceilings. Even the air conditioning unit and hot water heater are new.

Some other activities we look forward to are going to Sharky's Pier for dinner, live music and a drink. Or a short drive to Nokomis Groves for a cone of their famous orange ice cream, yum yum! But the best part about our Venice home is that we don't have to go anywhere to experience the amazing sunsets that unravel each evening. At cocktail hour, we can lift our glasses to toast the setting, burnt orange, sun as we dine on our own lanai.

We invite you to our Florida home to experience our little piece of heaven.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: This year will be our 35th wedding anniversary. Hoping for another 30+. We enjoy family (including our 3 granddaughters), travel, golf and walking the gulf beaches. Ever heard of geocaching? As we search for our next cache, we are outdoors and seeing unique sites and terrain, discovering Venice's history and experiencing southwest Florida's flora and fauna.

Why the Owner Chose Venice, FL, USA:
We've had family members living in the Venice gulf coast area for 50+ years. Our Florida vacations with the children growing up were great, no matter the time of year. Each season has its treasures that make it unique. Warm Gulf waters for swimming, Manatee viewing, baby sea turtles hatching, river canoeing, orange harvest season and kite flying!! Very relaxing.... After viewing tons of locations in Venice, we were thrilled with this first floor condo because of its beautiful westward view and the spacious, uncrowded feeling we have away from our neighbors.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The Plantation is a highly maintained golf resort community that is lush with tropical plants, flowers and mature trees. The environment attracts a wonderful variety of colorful birds for viewing. Many of our sidewalk and parking areas are shaded for comfortable walks or leisurely bike riding. No traffic issues here-even in high season. We selected our ground floor condo because of the wonderful lanai and patio view of the lake and golf course and its peaceful, quiet location. We welcome you to come and share our vacation home we call "Ibis Paradise".
