Soaring ceilings and expansive water views make this home the perfect Florida retreat. Located on the 6th fairway of the esteemed Venetian Golf and River Club, this upscale DaForli model is impressive in every way. The open plan brings you seamlessly through all living spaces while providing privacy in each of the three bedrooms. The large living/great room welcomes you into this well cared for home and adjoins the comfortable family room and beautiful kitchen with stainless appliances, gas stove, and gorgeous granite breakfast bar and countertops. Three sets of sliding glass doors allow access to the paver stone, caged lanai and saltwater pool/spa combination. The spacious owner's suite offers a spectacular view of the tranquil lake and lush tropical landscaping. Sliding glass doors from the master provide easy access to waterside sunrises. Two walk-in closets with custom wood shelving, bath with soaking tub, walk-in shower, and dual sinks with granite counters complete the suite. Two guest bedrooms with Jack and Jill bath and the possibility of a fourth bedroom/den/office make this home perfect for large or multi-generational living.
