The home, with 2,541 square feet of living area, contains three bedrooms, two baths, a study and a fireplace. Prices start at $174,400, including home site. Sliding glass doors and large picture windows are situated along the back of the home, offering views of the golf course, lake and cypress stands. The interior design, by Robb & Stucky, uses greens, blues and peach tones.
