About the property

3 Br + Den With Murphy Bed, 3 Full Baths

This house is great for a relaxing vacation. It's an easy drive to all the fun things, but it's also removed so it's a great place to relax at the end of a busy day. If you're with family or guests, it's big enough to have your own space or congregate in the middle for a nice dinner.

It's a one level home except for the media room and third bath which are up a flight of stairs. The master suite, with lake views and a large private bath (separate shower and large soaking tub, dual sinks, walk in closet) is located on one side of the house. There are two additional bedrooms on the other side. The master bedroom has a king bed, other rooms have a queen and two twins. One of the twin beds has a trundle underneath so you could sleep three children in that room. The center of the house with the family room and kitchen is open with views of the lanai and lake. There's a formal living and dining room in the front of the house. The laundry room with washer and dryer is on the main floor. There is a two car attached garage.

The house is located in gated community of Bella Terra within a half mile of the community amenities which include: huge resort style pool (heated), tennis courts, bocce courts, inline skate hockey rink, basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, children's play equipment.

If you want to watch tv after a busy day, there's a 50 inch tv in the main floor family room and a 60 inch upstairs in the media room along with a DVD player. Cable TV is connected to both.

This location is handy for many reasons. It's less than 20 min to the airport but far enough to avoid most noise. There are endless shopping and dining options covering the whole retail and dining spectrum. The malls also have movie theaters and often host free outdoor concerts in the winter.

There are a number of nature parks nearby for hiking. There are lots of golf courses in the area. You can get to the beaches in a half hour (depending on time of day and season). There are many different beaches for different interests to it's fun to explore them.

About Joel Nierengarten

My wife and I have "kids" who are old enough for us to be free to do fun things, but we aren't old enough to retire and live in the house most of the year. For now, we enjoy time at the house at least a couple times a year.

Joel Nierengarten purchased this house in 2011

Why Joel Nierengarten chose Bella Terra

We stumbled into the house as an opportunity in 2011. We bought it as an investment but after spending time with it, we love it and can't sell it. We decided to keep it and share it with people like us to love the Southwest Florida area.

What makes this house unique

One of our favorite features of the house is the lanai, sitting out there in the morning with coffee watching and listening to the wild life, or watching the sun set in the evening with a glass of wine...just wonderful.

Beautiful community with a house on the lake

  • 5 of 5

This property is great! The home feels very secure in a gated community. The house has a lake behind it that is stocked with bass. The home was very clean and had everything thing you need for a long stay. I would highly recommend staying here for vacation or a business trip!

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 4 adults and 3 kids. It worked out perfectly! There is even a pull-out double bed in the den and 2 single mattresses upstairs, so more people could've stayed if we wanted. The house is very clean, and there are so many extras: balls for the kids, beach chairs, beach towels, pool toys, and even some baking staples, coffee and coffee filters. Great get-away! We will plan to be back soon.

For rentals, in January through March, the entire period must be rented. I realize it shows a minimum state of only 60 days but my only other option is 90 days which forces the renter to add another day. Sorry for any confusion.
