Property description

Situated on a scenic, salt-water, canal lot with quick access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, this magnificent home was built in 2002 and comes newly furnished, and features all the amenities you would expect for total comfort. Take a dip in the heated pool or enjoy breakfast on the lanai, all within a new screened enclosure for added comfort. Walk out to the dock and board your boat stored on the 10,000-pound boat lift and head out to Charlotte Harbor or the Gulf of Mexico for a day of fishing or a visit to historic Punta Gorda.

Once inside, relax under the vaulted cathedral ceilings with an open floor plan that includes a large, porcelain tiled, eat-in kitchen with breakfast bar area leading to a huge great room with cable television and surround sound speakers. From this vantage point, look out over the lanai through the sliding doors toward the canal and enjoy a spectacular sunset available with the western exposure. Enjoy your favorite cuisine in the formal dining room or curl up with a good book in the carpeted study/living room.

The master suite has a queen-size bed, walk-in closet, and private bathroom which includes a soaking tub and walk-in shower. The pool area can be directly accessed from the master bath. The split bedrooms have full-size beds with plenty of closet space. All bedrooms have lighted ceiling fans. The utility room includes a large capacity washer and dryer and offers additional space for storage.

This tastefully decorated home has central air conditioning, with multiple cable television hook ups. Weekly lawn and pool services are provided.

For those with an interest in baseball, enjoy a Tampa Bay Rays spring training game at nearby Charlotte Sports Park (6 miles) or during the regular season, take in a Charlotte Stone Crabs, Class A, evening game with a $6 ticket and frequent special promotion games.

Take your chances on the slot machine, blackjack table or poker table at either of the 2 Hard Rock Cafe hotel/casinos within easy driving Tampa (1 1/2 hour drive) and Hollywood (2 hour drive)or at nearby Seminole casino in Immokalee (1 hour).

We are located just minutes away from the Port Charlotte town center, as well as area beaches and recreational facilities. Local airports, Fort Myers and Sarasota, are within a 45-minute drive.

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Hello from New Jersey. We are the Arico's, Jim and Diane.

Why the Owner Chose Port Charlotte, FL, USA:
We purchased this salt water canal home in 2005. We are part of the baby boomer generation and have hopes in the near future of moving here, where the sun always seems to be shining, and the waters of Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico await the many cruises we'll take aboard our pleasure cruiser. We welcome you to come here to escape the harsh winters of the north and enjoy all that this area has to offer. You won't regret your decision.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Cathedral ceiling with open split floorplan. Surround sound speakers. Wireless internet. Waterfront property. Western sky sunsets. Very quiet neighborhood. Heated pool. New seawall and landscape updated.
