REDUCED! Welcome to the River Club! Terrific views of the GOLF COURSE from this like-new former model home in VENETIAN GOLF & RIVER CLUB. Beautiful brick pavers on a screened lanai surround a HEATED SALTWATER POOL and SPA. The kitchen, living room and dining area were designed with the entertainer in mind, with wide open spaces and open views of the lanai, pool and golf course. Lots of windows bring in natural light from every angle, and the open concept space keeps the chef engaged in the festivities. The master bedroom looks out over the golf course, features a large walk-in closet, dual sinks, walk-in shower and a soaking tub. A GUEST BEDROOM and a DEN complete the picture. Some special features in this former model include granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, solid wooden cabinetry in the kitchen and baths, diagonal tile throughout living areas, crown molding and an extended lanai area. Enjoy an active lifestyle in this wonderfully master-planned community. While membership in the golf club is strictly optional, being a member includes an 18-hole championship golf course, a 20,000 SF Golf Club for Members, state-of-the-art men's and ladies lounges, a fully equipped golf shop, casual dining at The Grille, as well as private dining options in the magnificent Mediterranean-inspired edifice.
