3 Bedroom Heated Pool home with new Boat Dock,, no Bridges to Charlotte Harbor and Gulf of Mexico! Located on a broad saltwater canal in picturesque Charlotte County in Southwest Florida, the home is located at the point where the Peace River flows into Charlotte Harbor forming one of the most pristine estuaries in the state. This unique confluence holds an amazing degree of vitality and biodiversity. You'll be able to watch schools of mullet, tarpon, snook, other game fish, and even Manatees as they ply the waterways. And imagine your delight as you spy the enormous variety of crabs and other shellfish scurrying over the flats during low tide. You'll see stingrays silently patrol the bottom as the tide gently rolls back in a constant rhythm of life.
You'll have everything you need to thoroughly experience a coastal vacation. There is a 100' seawall that spans the entire backyard. A new 35' dock provides a great platform for fishing or getting that perfect tan. And bring your boat and launch it nearby, then keep it right at your dock, ready for a cruise in Charlotte Harbor, which can be seen from the dock and is a two minute cruise. If you don't have your own, a boat can easily be rented on a daily or weekly basis at nearby Punta Gorda.
Tired of relaxing? No problem. Boat down to Punta Gorda and enjoy live music just about every evening. Downtown Punta Gorda is a center for festivals, concerts and other local events all of which highlight the local cuisine. You will not be disappointed. You are minutes away from I-75 where you can drive 30 minutes north to Sarasota or south to Fort Myers. If the kids come down for a visit, why not plan a trip to nearby Busch Gardens in Tampa (2 hours with traffic) Or take off to visit the legendary Disney World or Universal Studios theme parks in Orlando only 3 hours away.
Port Charlotte is indeed a boater's paradise. You can travel up the Peace River on a pontoon or deck boat for a relaxing view of the mangrove and palm tree forests while enjoying the spectacle of Great Blue and White Herons, Glossy Ibis and even an occasional Bald Eagle. We invite you to check out the Peace River Audubon Society for detailed lists of the birds known to frequent the region. With direct access to Charlotte Harbor, the Boca Grande Pass, world renowned for its sport fishing, the Intercoastal Waterway and the Gulf Mexico are only 55 short minutes away by water.
