Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We've enjoyed Lake County as our home since 1976. Our hobbies are gardening, fishing and music evidenced by the beautiful grounds and lakefront. We love the small town feel and big city attractions with arts, sports and coastal beaches an hour away. Originally from Michigan, we moved to Central Florida in 1971. It's been a great place to raise a family and now retire! We live in the attached unit and enjoy having guests.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Dora:
Lakefront living in a park like setting. Lake Saunders (400 acres) is a spring fed lake offering a picturesque view, fishing and swimming and beautiful sunsets. We are convenient to both coasts, the Orlando airport, and attractions just an hour away. In addition over 1300 other named lakes, springs, rivers and the Ocala National Forest are within 30 minutes or less. Restaurants are within walking distance. Antique shops, entertainment venues, civic and cinema theaters as well as shopping malls are within five miles.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Seaplane Port 4 miles. Numerous nearby activities, fairs and festivals are abundant throughout the year. Events include: music, monthly street party, antique boats, biker fest, fine arts, crafts, Washington's Birthday Festival, sailing regatta, fishing tournaments, quilt show, year round antique malls and farmers markets.
