Dreaming of a tropical island getaway? Make your dreams come true in this gem on Sanibel Island. It's the perfect choice for beach-goers, nature lovers, and those looking for some well-needed rest and relaxation.
The Strangler Fig home is a lovely pet-friendly, ground level home, tucked away in lush tropical foliage in the Gulf Pines neighborhood at the west-end of Sanibel. It is located one mile from the J.N. "Ding' Darling National Wildlife Refuge, 3 miles from the heart of Sanibel and 3.5 miles from Captiva Island.
The beaches at Gulf Pines are prized for being low-key and uncrowded, and with 2 community pools and tennis courts, it is a favorite neighborhood for seasonal and year-round residents. A dog run has just been added to the community area as well, so if you plan on bringing your doggie, they'll be having fun too!
The Strangler Fig is a beloved, beautiful native tree found on the island and throughout Florida. It is part of the Ficus Tree family, and you will see this tree throughout the neighborhood. Along with the vegetation and flora, quaint shell paths throughout the property give this home a relaxing appeal. It is a short 3-minute stroll to the beach access, which is adjacent to the house, and 200 feet from one of the 2 community pools and tennis courts.
With tile floors throughout the entire home, the interior provides an open and spacious living room, and a glass enclosed lanai brings the outdoors in. The eat-in kitchen is updated and well-appointed, with all appliances, a pantry, and every accoutrement you would need to prepare meals to entertain friends and family.
Just outside the lanai, there is a wood sun deck that offers even more space to relax and unwind after a day of shelling, fishing, swimming, birding or exploring.
The master bedroom has a King bed, sliding glass doors to access the lanai, and an en-suite 3-piece bathroom with dressing area, vanity and shower. The guest bedroom has 2 twin beds, and a 3-piece tub-shower combination bath.
The two car garage is where you will find beach chairs, a washer-dryer, and additional storage.
