My husband and I purchased this house in 2015 as our eventual retirement home.
We consider it paradise to be in beautiful Historic Punta Gorda Isles on the water with a dock and 10 minutes to open water. This is coastal living at its best with all boating, sailing, fishing, swimming, golf, shopping, restaurants and nightlife close by. You can bike to Fisherman's Village, downtown Historic Punta Gorda, parks, marina's, farmers market and much more. There is always a festival going on in Punta Gorda, so be sure to take the time to enjoy them.
This is a cul-de-sac home in a quiet neighborhood. The living room and family room (or what we call man cave) are spacious, yet offer enough privacy from each other for multiple families. The master bedroom, man cave, kitchen, dining room and second bedroom have views of the surrounding waterway.
The home contains all new stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, new flooring and hurricane impact windows, tastefully decorated in a homey but beach motif. We selected all the furnishings that we would want to have if we lived there full time, as we will someday. This is a split plan 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that sleeps 6 privately and comfortably. The master is a king room, the second bedroom is a queen room and the third bedroom is furnished with 2 twin beds. There are pocket doors throughout and one that separates the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms and a bath to create a completely private suite. The master suite is located on the opposite side of house offering privacy of its own.
Our backyard is canal front with a newly added 41' dock which our guests are welcome to use should you have a boat or to sit relaxing in the Adirondack chairs with an iced tea or cocktail of choice.
In April 2017 we added a custom designed heated saltwater pool with color changing led lights to further enhance our guest's relaxation and enjoyment.
The house is fully equipped with all kitchen needs and accessories, linens, bath towels, beach towels, table clothes, cloth napkins, place mats for all seasons and entertaining needs etc. etc. You truly just need to bring your clothes!
Picture sitting on the back lanai in the morning enjoying your coffee while watching the sunrise reflecting off the water with a light breeze from the fan above, or a glass of wine in the evening mesmerized by the soft color changing lighting illuminating from the beautiful pool . . . it is certainly our favorite place to be. The water view is amazing and sound of "peace" is refreshing with only the occasional fish jumping in the canal. If you're lucky, you might even see a dolphin swim by! We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.
For safety purposes, a ladder is provided on the dock in case of emergency, but swimming in the canal is not recommended. There are sharp sea life that could cut the skin located on canal bottom, seawall, pylons, etc.
