Sophisticated Industrial Chic 2BR Downtown Fort Myers Waterfront Getaway
Whimsical sophistication and style is the vibe in this turnkey 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom unit in a modern 2005-built Mediterranean-resort-style waterfront building packed with amenities.
All you need to move in is your toothbrush (and a swimsuit, the pool is divine!) to enjoy all Southwest Florida has to offer along the Fort Myers riverfront, within walking distance to downtown’s thriving restaurants, entertainment, art galleries, shopping, and theaters. World-renowned beaches and glittering shores are just a short drive away.
Inside the spacious fully-furnitshed unit, you’ll delight in the charm and unique details of this exceptional retreat, where even the décor is inspired by renewal. Eschewing the typical Southwest Florida condo/beach style in favor of a colorful, unique urban asthetic, every thoughtful feature was selected for the comfort of our own friends and families, as well as yours, in mind. We spend time here, too.
Dine at the one-of-a-kind, reclaimed barn-wood-and-pipe dining table, under the soft light of an Edison-bulb chandelier and pendants created by the owner. A custom barn wood and tin kitchen island adds charm and function, as well as additional seating. Mark time with the giant living room clock on numbers collected from area architectural salvage and vintage markets. Take in original paintings created by an artist friend.
Each bedroom has its own personality. The Zen master king bedroom invites with dreamy gray and white Bol & Branch linens and black and white photographs by Clyde Butcher, called the Ansel Adams of the Everglades. A walk-in closet and walk-in shower make the bath area an oasis. Pops of brushed nickel accessories add sophistication. A comfortable upholstered chair makes a fine reading nook.
The cheery bedding in the queen bedroom was inspired by the bright light from the room’s own door to the balcony. Relax in a Naples Soap Company (conveniently located in downtown Fort Myers) bath bomb in the big soaking tub (with shower), or enjoy the river view from the balcony and window.
There’s so much to see and enjoy, you’ll find charm and delight at every turn. But it may be what you don’t see that really makes this unit outstanding. The owner, a Florida 5th-generation Floridian and plumbing contractor for more than 30 years, has installed the highest quality water filtration and softening system. You’ll notice a difference in how your skin feels after your first shower! Ice from the refrigerator, as well as the coffee pot, use filtered drinking water. Of course all the plumbing fixtures are premium!
Features you should expect, but don’t always get: maple floors and tile bathrooms and kitchen, high ceilings, en suite bathrooms (each with showers), walk-in closets, washer/drier, flat screen TVs, bedroom blackout curtains (ensuring the ability to sleep in), gated, secure and covered parking (1 spot included with additional guest parking available), cable TV, WIFI, pub-height patio furniture (so you can enjoy the view without having to look through the balcony railing!), quiet hallways (with interior entry), floor-to-ceiling hurricane-rated sliding doors, and a cooks fully equipped, open kitchen with granite counters.
The fourth-floor unit’s (yes, elevators!) lushly landscaped 7-story building complex with 131 units features: riverfront walk-in pool, hot tub (always perfect temps!) and covered deck with stainless steel gas barbeque grills, kayak launch, state-of-the-art workout room (with a view!), library with gas fireplace, party lounge/game room, bell carts for luggage, professional management, and scheduled events.
City-run trollies come by the property for easy hop on-hop off access to downtown in season. Water taxis are also available. Find out why TripAdvisor has rated the Historic Downtown River District as #5 of the top 108 things to see in Ft. Myers!
Centrally located, it's the perfect base to explore the historic Edison/Ford Homes approximately 3 miles away. Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel/Captiva Islands are approximately 20 miles away. Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins spring training facilities for sports fans just a few miles away. The burgeoning restaurant scene in Cape Coral is just across the bridge.
