About The Property

Lazy Tree is the absolute passion of the Brits who have invested enormous time, energy and money into creating a holiday destination that is almost dream-like and a haven from the rest of the world; somewhere to relax, have fun and live a little.

From their careful appointment of Joyce Owens, internationally qualified designer, to the choice of Lazy Tree’s furnishings, hand-picked for their suitability and beauty, nothing has been forgotten in their quest to create somewhere that is nothing short of extraordinary.

Joyce’s design realised by Berkley Developments, award-winning family builders since the 1990’s, has provided 4 bedrooms, all with en-suite and walk in closet, and two of the bedrooms are Master Suites – both looking due south. On the first floor the rooms feature cathedral ceilings, fully insulated (not just space under air) The L-shape living room opens to the kitchen and extends to some 37’ x 36’, as well as which there is a dining and a relaxation lanai, (a lanai is a roofed veranda) both of which overlook the pool and the river.

Swim in the 36’ x 16’ all-year-round pool (solar heated, and with supplementary electric heat pump, fully screened and with electrically-operated safety cover); and then perhaps take a glass of wine. Or if it takes your fancy, hire a boat – it’s just 20 or so minutes to the Gulf of Mexico. Catch your dinner then back home to sit on the 25’ x 15’ upper floor, south-facing deck sip another glass of wine and watch the sun glistening before it sets on the mile-wide Calooshatchee River.

Outside there is also a driveway for parking, as well as a 20’ x 20’ garage – plenty of room for your open-top sports car and MPV.
