Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My wife and I enjoy meeting other people. We have met some wonderful people, and made new friends. We can never have too many friends in our opinion.

Why the Owner Chose Winter Springs:
My wife and I fell in love with this lakefront property when we first saw it in 1998. We were actually getting bids from contractors to build a new house on another piece of property we had owned for several years, but that property was not on a lake. When we saw this property we decided it was for us even though it needed extensive renovations. Looking back on our decision to sell the land and purchase the house on the water was the right decision. We both love our lakefront paradise.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You can enjoy a beautiful sunrise and sunset from the dock almost every day, You can see satellite launches from the coast on your balcony or walk down to the dock. You can see water skiers run the ski course. You can see some form of wildlife daily whether it be ducks, heron, ospreys, eagles, or some other creature. You can fish, swim the lake, use the canoe or paddle board, relax in the hammock, or just enjoy the view. This is life on the lake and we think you will love it.
