Property description

Handsomely furnished 1st floor condominium overlooks the fifth green of one of two Ron Garl designed 18-hole championship (an LPGA qualifier has been played here for the last 28 years) golf courses with a beautiful swimming pool solely for the condo residents.

Monthly rentals include social membership at the Plantation Golf and Country Club, which gains you access to the Club's outstanding dining room, lounge and terrace, special events, activities, junior Olympic pool, Jacuzzi, state-of-the-art fitness center and group classes. Golf tee times available before 8:30 in the morning and after 3 in the afternoon and four rounds of tennis per month (fees additional).

The tranquility and natural beauty of the area makes for an ideal vacation or extended stay. Some of Florida’s best beaches are a mere 12 minute drive. There are more than 10 public or semi-private golf courses within 8 miles. Fishing, boating, biking and birding, there is plenty to offer the active outdoors enthusiast. Shopping and dining in Venice are also top-notch.

This ground floor unit allows easy access without any stairs or elevators. It is also an end unit with large Bahama shutters that allow more air and light into the master suite with views of lush tropical plants. Drapes can be drawn to provide night-time privacy. Parking is available for one vehicle under the detached carport with additional off-street parking for guests.

The convenient galley kitchen is fully equipped with electric ceramic cooktop and oven, refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and toaster as well as dishes, cutlery, glassware, table linens, pots, pans and utensils. A closet pantry provides ample storage for infrequently used appliances and your personal provisions.

The bright and airy master bedroom has a king size bed, walk-in wardrobe, cable television, en-suite bath with walk-in shower and two separate vanities. Sliding glass doors from the master bedroom enter onto the screened lanai. The guest bedroom has two twin beds and large wardrobe closet; the adjacent bath has a full tub.

Full-size front-loading high efficiency washer and dryer is off the master bedroom. Linens, bath and beach towels are supplied. The main living room has sliding glass doors which open onto a tiled and screened lanai overlooking the golf course.

The screened and tiled lanai is west-facing and has outdoor seating for dining al fresco and watching sunsets. This first floor condo also has a private patio and pergola with tropical plantings that invite you to walk outside.

The Farmington Vistas community heated pool and clubhouse are a mere 50 steps away and free for your use. Community barbecue grills and Wi-Fi are available at the clubhouse. A small library can extend your reading.

We realize most people carry cell phones these days, however we do provide a land-line phone for emergencies and your convenience. We also provide high speed wi-fi in the condo for easy internet access without relying on the community access at the pool. Additional reference information regarding local beaches, golfing, recreational activities, dining and the closest pharmacies and emergency medical access is provided for your convenience.

Smoking and pets are not allowed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are from the mountains of New Hampshire. We enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, boating and golf. We also love to travel and have found that Venice and the Gulf Coast of Florida are as nice as any place we have visited. When we're home, we love gardening and 'yardening.'

Why the Owner Chose Venice, FL, USA:
The beautiful Gulf Coast sunsets, endless beaches, and friendly sunny people make you feel right at home. It is easy to lead a healthy and active lifestyle year round. We are also avid birders and have really enjoyed the incredible bird and wild life in the area. Getting to Venice is easy with access to either Sarasota (SRQ), Fort Myers (RSW) or Tampa (TPA) airports.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love sitting on both the lanai and outdoor patio, sipping our morning coffee and tea, with gentle breezes in the palms and pines. Sandhill cranes occasionally stroll by as golfers work their way up the Bobcat course. We love to walk over to the pool for an easy dip in the morning or after a day on the course. Sublime!
