Located in the southwestern region of the Florida peninsula, the 106-mile Peace River is known for fossil finds and a pristine setting for paddling. It’s a low-key and timeless destination, perfect for nature lovers looking for a quiet retreat.
If you’re in the market for a home that matches the nature-oriented environment of the Peace River, check out this two-bedroom, three-bath contemporary on 20 acres adjacent to the river. Built on stilts, the treehouse-like building was designed by San Francisco-based Anderson Anderson Architects. It’s located in lush pine and oak forests with views to the surrounding trees and canopy. An elevator helps to navigate the 2,858 square feet, and the main living area features high ceilings, eight-foot windows, and a modern kitchen and dining room.
The star of the house is undoubtedly the multi-level screened porch that runs along the south side of the home, offering views to the outdoors without the irritation of bugs. Other amenities include an additional screened porch off of the master, a den that can be turned into a third bedroom, and an easement with access to the Peace River.
