This home is perfect for either enjoying nature from the comfort of your home or being incredibly active with all the onsite amenities. Imagine starting your day enjoying a panorama of egrets, herons, osprey, eagles, roseate spoonbills, pelicans, skimmers and dolphins right outside your 22' wall of lanai windows.

The 2nd bedroom is a relaxing space for guests or can be flexibly used as an office/den/craft room. And the glassed/screened lanai does triple duty as a terrace with Audubon like nature views and tropical breezes or it can be an extra TV room/office or 3rd sleeping space.
