This is a waterfront courtyard pool home with a waterfall on Valmora Lake.
This home has great views from the livingroom and in the kitchen. Wherever you go in the house you are looking at either the courtyard with the pool or the lake.
The cherrywood kitchen is new with cherry cabinets and granite countertops.
The pool is in the centre of the house in an enclosed courtyard and extremely private.

What I love about this home:
* Private enclosed pool
* Lake Front
* Georgeous Sunsets
* Walking distance to Publix, Liquor Store, Walgreens, PIzza, Restaurant, Chinese Food etc.
* Master bedroom has sliding patio doors to both the pool area and the lake
* Everywhere you look you see either the lake or the pool
perfect location, its in the subtropics so it does not cool down in the winter. The restaurants are close, shopping is close, beaches are all close enough. The house is on a lake and the pool is in a courtyard and very private.
We loved it so much we are coming back again. The owners were so nice and hospitable and checked up to make sure everything was ok.
