Easy-Living, Easy-Maintenance, Easy-to-Beach
& This Fabulous Long Lake View
Lake Murex is a small community of near-beach homes just off West Gulf Drive, surrounded mainly by conservation land. Because the lake is man-made, elevation here is high.
The adjoining sister community to the north, Little Lake Murex, surrounds a 2nd lake. Both share a deeded beach walking easement (5′ along the western-edge of West Wind Inn).
Shopping, post office, restaurants, movie theater, & more are just minutes away by car or take the shortcut by bike & view nature too – along Island Inn Rd.
625 Lake Murex Circle has easy-care xeriscape yard & solid concrete-block-stucco construction with tile roof.
The tropical yard features several coconut palms, a papaya, & a mango tree large enough to feed the neighborhood.
This home also offers easy-access easy-living with its ground-level split bedroom floor plan.
The lakeside solar-heated screened pool faces east with a long view down the lake past the rookery island – perfect for bird-watching.
Watch ibis, heron, & pelicans come & go, the occasional osprey, eagle, roseate spoonbill, & alligator too.
With 3 bedrooms and 2-1/2 baths, it features ~1,918 sq. ft. under air, ~3,565 sq. ft. total including a double garage with workbench.
The south side of the home has two guest rooms with bath (one guest room has a Murphy bed). The central great room has sliders to the pool.

Near by is a separate laundry room with full-sized washer & dryer, plus laundry sink & storage. The 1/2 bath is convenient to kitchen & the pool. The master is en suite with walk-in closet & plantation shutters.
