Located in the perfect south Lee County, Florida, setting between Fort Myers and Estero, Creekside Preserve is a residential neighborhood of carriage homes winding around a large lake in the center of the community.
There are 42 buildings containing 168 individual residences here, and the views from most of the units feature inspiring water panoramas. Homes that do not feature lake views offer tranquil vistas of the natural preserve land that surrounds this idyllic setting. The development was completed in 2015.
Creekside Preserve residents enjoy easy nearby access to many shopping, dining, and other businesses, as well as Florida Gulf Coast University, known more commonly as FGCU, located just 10-minutes away.
The carriage-style residences here offer both 2 and 3-bedroom floorplans with between around 1,400 to just over 1,600 square feet of living area, and all units come with a private 1-car garage.
A ground floor, end unit with 2-bedrooms and 2-baths consists of 1,402 square feet of interior space and was built in 2015. The open floorplan is centered by a large family room opening onto the private screened lanai, perfect for entertaining friends and family. Recent upgrades include custom crown moldings, and the corner location offers unobstructed water views and abundant natural light. This residence was most recently marketed for $330,000.
Residents in Creekside Preserve pay a quarterly Homeowners Association, (HOA), fee of $1,175 for upkeep of the community’s pristine grounds, swimming pool and clubhouse and the private entry gates, among other items.
Another ground floor residence offers 2-bedrooms plus a den and 2-baths, and 1,247 square feet of interior living area. This stunning unit boasts custom ceramic tile, 42” solid wood upper cabinets, stainless steel appliances and gleaming granite countertops. Relax on the large, screened lanai while you watch the birds in the serene nature preserve just outside your back door. This unit was last on the market at $275,000.
