The NE area of Cape Coral offers waterfront living on Fresh Water canal lots. The canal systems may lead to lakes but none will lead out to the Gulf of Mexico or the Caloosahatchee River which borders Cape Coral on its east and south sides. Still, waterfront living is a very large part of the Cape Coral homeowner dream being that there are over 400 miles of canals, both Gulf Access & Fresh water combined.
To own a home on the water is a definite plus especially if it's a basin, intersecting canal or lake view property. There's nothing like walking down to the waterfront area of the property and standing on the seawall or a dock and observing the turtles, fish or other birds or wildlife. On rare occasions some canal systems may even have otters living nearby. The birds are majestic species including egrets, herons, ibis, ospreys and eagles.
If you enjoy wildlife and waterfront living is a possibility, then consider Cape Corals' Fresh water homes.
