Property description

AC/heat) that is completely and tastefully remodeled and includes tile throughout the downstairs, new appliances and granite counters in the kitchen, plus 3 sliding glass doors for stunning views of the sunset over the lake. Only one bedroom (slider & balcony) is upstairs, which contains a queen size bed and opens to a westward view of the lake with balcony access.

The living room has a couch and a large futon and can be closed off by double french doors for additional sleeping space. The screened porch at house, also with the lake view, has 2 ceiling fans, gas grill and table for 6-8, which is a great way to barbecue and enjoy the stunning sunsets.

Fish from the dock or bring your canoe, kayak, or boat for the open boat slip.

Parking is ample and there is space for RV, but no hook up. Please call for availability dates, calendar not always accurate.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We live in Fort Lauderdale, Fl and Don is an engineer/general contractor and Kathryn is an artist. We orginally thought the house would be a great vacation house, but it seems it is a source of endless creative projects!

Why the Owner Chose Sebring:
WE HAVE A SPECIAL FOR ALL RACE TEAMS, WEEKENDS $84.00 a night per room, minimum 4 rooms to rent. Don is an amateur race car driver and loves the track. Kathryn is an artist and loves the natural lake views and peaceful atmosphere. She is originally from Indiana and is reminded of that Midwestern niceness of the people in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have plenty of room to entertain family and friends. After a noisy day at the track, or a busy day of sight seeing, it is wonderful to come 'home' to a quiet beautiful sunset over the lake. Life is good! Upstairs balcony makes for great star watching on the clear nights away from the big city lights.
