Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have enjoyed living and working over 30 years in southwest Florida, have grown children, love dogs, (particularly fond of the dachshund breed) and appreciate the gift of family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose North Fort Myers, FL, USA:
We feel blessed to have what we feel is a rare opportunity to own such a unique and beautiful waterfront home and hope our guests enjoy the private, peaceful setting it offers. It is a very special property and would appeal to the nature lover who likes to relax, unwind and yet be in driving distance to Ft. Myers, Estero, Sanibel & Captiva Islands, Cape Coral & Pine Island. Guests can take advantage of opportunity to charter or rent a boat and experience some of the nearby water activities, Gulf, Back Bay, River and Deep Sea Fishing. There are day Key West Trips by boat available and you are less than 2 hours across the State from Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, approx. 4-5 hours from Orlando/Disneyland, approx. 1 1/2 hours away from Sarasota and only about 1 hour away from Pt. Charlotte/Punta Gorda. Area is also home to 2 major baseball spring training teams, (The Boston Red Sox & The Minnesota Twins). Downtown Ft. Myers is nearby and has activities like Art and Music Walk & nice restaurants, night life and a Farmer's Market. For the Shopper you can go to Edison Mall (a short distance from house), The Bell Tower Shops, Miramar Discount Shops, Gulf Coast Mall, and Coconut Mall..all approx. within 30 minutes or less from home. If you are a reader there are 2 nearby libraries. Lehr's Bait and Tackle is just down the street where you can talk to experts about local fishing. So much to do in the area and owners have provided lots of vacationer guides, maps and suggestions inside the home to assist in choosing activities that may appeal to you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Gourmet styled kitchen with open kitchen counter/bar is perfect for entertaining. The beautiful setting has a wrap-around-porch and the special character of this home is drawn from its spectacular natural panoramic views. Natural setting and a nice get-away for the more private guest.
