My Notes

Beautiful home with Sailboat access, docking, private boat ramp. Well marked waterways, deep boating areas throughout the River Basin. Area is adjacent to several Lee County Conservation 2020 properties which are preserved for environmental conservation and wildlife habitat and will never be developed. This creates large areas of green space that makes this Caloosahatchee River Home living so much more than other water areas. Home has additional area to park boats, an RV, build a boathouse, add on to home, and even add a pool. Home has large covered lanai (25' x 30') overlooking water and dock. Home has 3 bedrooms two baths with plenty of storage including two full walk in closets. Home has large living room, ceiling fans throughout each room including 3 on the lanai. Also an additional room that can be used for a second living room, office or recreation room. Lanai is wired for a spa or hotbub. Air Conditioning with hyper-allergic filters. Two stall garage with large storage area above garage. Garage has a designated workshop area. Storage area is floored above the garage and throughout the remainder of the home for more storage and easy access to the attic area. Attached Storage Shed. Home is very well built and passed Wind Test that lowered the insurance. Central air and a central vacuum system. Irrigation. Security lighting. Two new water heaters. Home recently entirely re-replumbed with plastic. Property is over 1/2 acre in size and the property includes the entire East-Side waterway on both sides. Waterway is totally private for the few water front owners in Jerry's 1/2 Acre. Property is over a 1/2 in size with an extra fenced area on the southside.Excellent school system. Very safe and secure area for family. All three of our adult children attended local schools here. Property is adjacent to the National Caloosahatchee Wildlife Sanctuary which contains many bird rookeries, manatees, excellent fishing including Tarpon, Snook, and Redfish.The Calusa Blue Way Water Trail also runs through the area which is for kayakers and canoes for beautiful restive scenery and quiet times. Boat to Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel Island, Ten Thousand Islands, Key West, or go around the world from this location. Two nearby boat marinas with one offering full boat maintenance, painting, or rebuilding of your boat, yacht, or sailboat. We are downsizing and moving which creates a great opportunity for the lucky home buyer.
Neighborhood Description
Property is adjacent to the Caloosahatchee National Wildlife Refuge
The Caloosahatchee National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), administered as a satellite refuge of J.N. "Ding" Darling NWR, is located in Lee County on the Caloosahatchee River within the city of Fort Myers. The refuge was established by President Woodrow Wilson on July 1, 1920, through Executive Order 3299 as a ". . . preserve and breeding ground for native birds". Originally, the Caloosahatchee refuge consisted of several mangrove islands. However, shoreline development, dredging of the river, and construction of the I-75 bridge has changed the physical arrangement and appearance of these islands. Today, the refuge still remains approximately 40 acres of mangrove shorelines and upland island habitats. The Florida Power and Light Company's Orange River Power Plant and the Orange River's outflow. The warm water outflow from the power plant is a major wintering area for the endangered West Indian manatee.

What I love about the home

Location, Location. Close to I-75 for quick access yet in a rural, natural, beautiful waterfront setting on over a 1/2 acre with palm trees. A true piece of South Florida Paradise. 20 minutes from Fort Myers International Airport. Sailboat access designated a safe harbor. Short distance by boat to Fort Myers and the Gulf of Mexico. Fabulous fishing from the dock for snook and redfish. Boat minutes and fish for world renown Tarpon. Area is known for Manatees and actually come to feed. Intertubing, water skiing, or jet skiing. Boat to Fort Myers, Sanibel, Captiva, Cape Coral and enjoy a fine restaraunt or music. Privacy and a great safe neighborhood. Next to the National Caloosatchee Wildlife Refugee. Several regional parks with everything from horseback riding to biking and meandering tributaries represent the newest leg of the Great Calusa Blueway. Discover places you want to visit more than just once. Among them: Caloosahatchee Regional Park: 765 acres of pine trees and oaks shade campers, hikers, horseback riders and off-road cyclists here in historic Alva. A day dock protects the kayak area, creating a calm lagoon-like place to launch or pull up. Paddle close to shore dig your fingers into the sandy bottom for fossilized sharks teeth and other fossils. Hickey's Creek Mitigation Park: A great day trip from Caloosahatchee Regional is to go downstream to the mouth of Hickey's Creek and head up the corkscrew of a creek to the park. Stretch your legs and picnic. This creek teems with life, from Doritos-sized freshwater turtles to 4-foot-tall sandhill cranes, bird watching, nature study and photography and a place to stretch. Orange River: At its mouth and just upstream you find manatees in the winter. Farther upriver from Lee County Manatee Park, you find a slice of Old Florida. A gentle current makes travel easy both directions.Caloosahatchee Creeks Preserve: Perfect for the novice paddler. A boardwalk offers sightings of marshes and wildlife.
