These homes are located on Fresh Water canal systems which means they do not go out to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Some of the canals can be long and go on for miles, and because of that they are very attractive for boat and fishing enthusiasts. Even if a homeowner doesn't participate in boating and/or fishing the waterfront lifestyle is something to behold, watching the wildlife that is attracted, or just admiring the waterviews. Some homes are built on pie shaped lots that have large backyards, and are located on intersecting canals for an enhanced water view over a basin. These are generally premium locations and are higher priced compared to a standard canal location.
Generally most people gravitate to or have a desire to live on the water, the views are wonderful and capture your attention.
