Property description

The Linton Homestead is a two story historical structure built in 1908 on 4.5 ac of prime property on the Caloosahatchee River two miles from the Gulf of Mexico.It has 300 ft of water frontage and some of the best fishing for snook, redfish, sharks,and tarpon any where in Florida. In the beginning of the 20th century,cattlemen from the central part of the state would bring their cattle through our front yard to Punta Rassa.They were then boated to
Cuba. The back property was a part of a 200ac gladiolus farm that prospered thru the 60s.
The 1900 sq ft house is made out of pine and cedar, and has weathered many hurricanes over the years.We have been in 5 and one flood brought a pod of 125lb tarpon outside our bedroom window.It has a screened porch which has 2 Brown and Jordan lounge chairs and table with 6 chairs.There are many chairs and tables on the deck as well as the pool area .The pool is a crazy shape but fun to swim in.The hot tub is adjacent to the pool and kept at 104 dg. As we enter the house the first room to the left is a family room with a nice cocktail table with sectional sofa that can sleep 2.It has a 50 in TV and oversize mirror. You have a straight view to the river.The nautical room is across the hall.It has a queen size bed with a good view. At the end of the hall is a lovely sitting room with a plush loveseat and two chairs. The bathroom is a full one .The kitchen has a refrigerator,dishwasher and a microwave.
The upstairs has two bedrooms with queen size beds in them and are very comfortable with lovely views.The room at the end of the hall has two exercise machines in them along with a trundle bed with two two matress.
The owners house is nonrentable and is connected by screened in deck and is pictured by three pods.The property contains about 600 mature palms.There is a lagoon that is 150 ft long and 50 ft wide that has docked our boats for years.There is much flora and fauna on the estate.
