Great neighbors. Walk to the shops and restaurants on Park Ave. Canoe, kayak or swim in Lake Virginia which is part of five chain of lakes.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: We are Stu and Jan Omans. Almost 40 years ago we bought our home and raised our three sons right here. Stu, retired prof. at UCF in English, founded the Orlando Shakespeare Festival and taught for 35 years. Jan, potter, artist, created the Ultimate Bagel at the popular Winter Park Farmer's Market, where with her husband and three sons baked and sold ethnic baked products. After retiring we, purchased a 10 acre farm in Western North Carolina where we play/work for six months a year.

Why the Owner Chose Winter Park:
Just unbelievable lucky I guess.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the beauty of our neighborhood surrounded by lakes and walking distance to Rollins College, Winter Park Library, Morse Museum of Art holding the largest collection of Tiffany Windows and Art Deco, Cornell Museum, Mad Cow Theater...Sitting on the screened front porch, walking around Lake Virginia to Rollins College or Park Ave. Seeing the bald eagles and great blue herons fly over our house.
