This is 1 of 3 contiguous lots located in a highly desirable section of Rotonda West characterized by affluent, estate-sized homes sprawled across double and triple lots. Across the street are 2 gorgeous estate homes overlooking golf course fairways and lakes. Both are on triple-lots beautifully manicured to resemble private parks. *** The backyards of these 3 waterfront lots each have 80’ of frontage along the Rotonda River, a scenic waterway that offers boating, fishing, free irrigation, and amazing wildlife shows from the comfort of your own backyard. *** The idyllic backyard views likewise reflect the affluent ambience of this picture-perfect neighborhood. The other side of the waterway is lined with more stately homes, each spanning 2/3 acres. This beautiful, serene setting is what you will enjoy from your backyard. *** These 3 choice properties offer tremendous value that goes way beyond the beauty that encircles them. Financially, they can save you a small fortune in construction, insurance, and utility costs. *** Due to their high elevation, FEMA and insurance companies classify them as “X-Flood zone” lots. For this reason, most lenders have waived the requirement for flood insurance. And if your personal preference is to have flood insurance anyway, the X-Flood status has the potential to reduce your annual premiums by 65% or more. *** Secondly, this high elevation has the potential to significantly reduce construction costs by minimizing or eliminating the need for costly fill or a stem wall. This also eliminates the need for steps, which can be a Godsend down the road. *** Third, The Rotonda River is part of a 26 mile, fresh-water canal system that provides free irrigation water. So, you can enjoy deep green lawns and lush sub-tropical landscaping without paying $100/month for city water. *** These waterfront lots can also serve as your gateway to an exciting new lifestyle. Docks and boats are common throughout Rotonda, with pontoon (party) boats being especially popular. Picture yourself boarding friends, or a special someone, onto your boat docked in your own backyard. You enjoy a scenic, 6-mile sunset cruise down the Rotonda River to the Rotonda Golf & Country marina. You enjoy dinner, drinks, and entertaining before taking another cruise home under the glow of a full moon, or the star-lit heavens of a new moon. *** And finally, as if all this isn’t enough reason to jump on these lots, here is another very compelling reason, in addition to all the savings and advantages cited above. Wherever you build your dream home, it’s value and appreciation will be significantly influenced and leveraged by the homes that surround it. These amazing lots are surrounded by beautiful upscale homes on estate-sized lots. Does it really make sense to build anywhere else when you can build here? *** To fully appreciate the amazing beauty that surrounds these exceptional properties, Please CLICK the VIRTUAL TOUR for 100+ PANORMAIC PHOTOS, DRONE PHOTOS, and 1080p CINEMATIC DRONE VIDEOS!
