Harbour Island estate offers vacation living all year roundBy Michelle Floyd

Have you ever thought, “Wouldn’t it be great to vacation at home?" Here is the opportunity of a lifetime!

Harbour Island in Marsh Landing Country Club is a marina community directly off the Intracoastal Waterway with deep protected water. All docks are behind the homes or in the main marina basin.

Just imagine your boat behind your home or within a short walk. Even for the non-boater, the ambience of water and boats floating in water is captivating. Some of the residents of Harbour Island just have vessels to entertain, have cozy dinners on board or use as an inviting guest home (where all the guests will beg for the boat!) For the fisherman, it is total heaven to be able to outfit for fishing and be steps from the home!

The residents who do not boat can walk along the basin promenade with that early morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine. For that extra bit of vacationing at home, there is an 18-hole golf course, 12 har-tru tennis courts, a state of the art fitness center, junior Olympic size pool, and casual and fine dining. Activity for all ages and interests!

This particular home has undergone a million-dollar renovation from interior to pool to yard. The style is coastal contemporary. The living room, foyer, and family room are all 2 stories – with walls of windows out to the marina basin – and European oak wood flooring and polished travertine. The walls are a muted gray venetian plaster. The prior owners were cooks who loved to entertain and installed a Lecornue Conufe 43-inch gas range and 4 ovens, plus a Miele stainless refrigerator, Thermador 24-inch microwave drawer, Bosch dishwasher, all Grohe faucets, Granke farmhouse sink and white maple wood cabinets with white chocolate classic finishes.

A butler’s pantry is close to the kitchen for easy serving, as well as a bar with seating and a large wine refrigerator. So easy for guests! There is also an incredible additional upstairs family room with another large bar with seating and an evening porch overlooking the marina basin for those spectacular sunsets! An outdoor area includes yet another bar area with seating, a summer kitchen, bath, and dramatic pool with double gas firepits. All the backyard grass is astro turf for easy maintenance and that “green” look all winter. The floating dock is 50 feet with water and power at the slip – such easy access with wide open areas in the main basin and a great turn radius.

Invest in a lifestyle: This home is a great place to live and entertain!

The home is represented by Marsh Landing Country Club Realty, listed by Cici Anderson and Michelle Floyd and offered for $2,400,000.
