Riverside Condo Has Views for Local Vets


Serving in the armed forces is an impressive and highly regarded profession especially in this region. As military veterans retire and remain in the area, this highly accessible Porto Vecchio complex with river views is an option listed near the $417,000 limit for a Veterans Administration Home Loan guaranteed in the G.I. Bill.

This 135-unit complex was designed to take full advantage of its riverfront location. The elegant lobby faces a lounge with walls of windows providing an expansive view of the gardens and the river beyond. The fourth-floor unit listed also provides impressive views from the dining and living areas, which are open to each other.

The living rooms full-length windows include sliding glass doors opening onto the terrace for an even better view. They also face built-in bookshelves. These public areas are enhanced and unified by crown molding above parquet wood floors. The dining room is also open to the full eat-in kitchen behind it.

On the other side of the living room, the bedroom also overlooks the river and features hardwood floors and walk-in closets. The luxury bathroom includes a Whirlpool tub, a separate glass-enclosed shower, a wall of mirrors and lights framing the vanity counter and sink.

During the warmer seasons, residents and their guests can also enjoy a swimming pool and sundeck overlooking the river, a kayak dock with storage area, a river barge with picnic tables, a bicycle/jogging trail and a lighted tennis court. At any time of year, they can take advantage of the informal party room with its large-screen TV, an exercise area with a sauna and 24-hour desk service.
