Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Cornel and Gabi Stef: Born and raised in Romania, Eastern Europe, immigrated legally to the U.S. with my husband and his family 32 years ago. We live in NW Indiana in the city of La Porte in an wooded area; we have two grown children, a 27 y/o married son and a 25 y/o daughter (high school math teacher in town) who lives with us. My husband has his own company, he makes high end upholstered custom furniture, some of which we have at the house in Florida; I am a former RN, work with my husband (officer work); we are actively involved in our local church and in overseas mission work, also hosting small group bible study and mission events.

Why the Owner Chose Rotonda Heights (Rotonda Lakes, FL, USA):
We wanted a place where it is warmer in the wintertime and a place that would suit both of our lifestyles. My husband is a golfer, and he loves being so close to 6 golf courses right in the Rotonda West. I love water! I have bad arthritis, and need to do aquatic exercises both in Indiana and when I am down in Florida. We chose a house close to golfing, all ground level (no stairs) and easy walk in shower, with a private in-ground heated pool (we have installed a brand new heating system and have converted the pool from chlorine to salt water) with total screen enclosure and comfy lanai. Large garage (golf clubs and tools stored there, as well as can park the car), back yard with 7 ft tall white fence. We also like the close proximity to the Warm Mineral Springs (very unique natural wonder) that are known to have healing properties for people with various chronic diseases such as arthritis, rheumatism, back pain, skin problems, etc. Lots of European people such as ourselves find this place very beneficial to health and maintenance. The spring waters are naturally hot, making the place accessible and usable even in colder weather. We also love the Punta Gorda airport, non-stop round trip affordable flights from South Bend, IN as well as from Peoria, IL where our son and daughter in law live. Also nearby several other larger airports.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Overall beautifully furnished, cozy, all amenities, heated pool house with garage, driveway, fenced in backyard, well maintained house that offers a best vacation experience. Large 3 br/2 ba one level house, close proximity to golf, beaches, Warm Mineral Springs, and, of course, the private heated pool with screen enclosure and cozy lanai. Easily accessible for people who have trouble getting into the tub or climbing stairs or for families with children; landscaping and pool are professionally maintained. Seven foot tall privacy fence all around the sides and back yard, with tropical plants and trees enhance the beauty and offer a totally private experience. Landscape has sprinkler system. You can choose home cooked meals in the well equipped kitchen (cooking, baking, serving) or eating out at great steak and sea food restaurants along the beach or the Lemon Bay area. We offer a variety of family movies and a variety of Classical and Christian music in the entertainment collection of DVD's and CD's. Enjoy the built in radio with aux input and cassette player, with built in speakers throughout the house and lanai/pool area.
