Located in the prestigious development in south Fort Myers called The Forest, this unique house has a #U” shaped floor plan wrapping around an island kitchen, porch and lanai oriented toward the golf course lake.
The program was designed to allow the elderly mother to coexist with her middle age daughter by having each one occupy one side of the home with the common shared kitchen and living area in the center. All the interiors walls were painted white and the entire floor surface was 12″ square ceramic tile. This choice of material helped facilitate and display the Owner’s colorful collection of art and oriental rugs. The high ceiling heights, excessive amount of windows, and center vaulted space promoted excellent natural ventilation for the wonderful climate during the winter months.
