Mount Dora house description

Luxury home on shoreline of beautiful Lake Dora. Just minutes from the restaurants and shops of downtown Mt Dora and Tavares. The professionally landscaped lot is a backdrop for this completely remodeled executive type home. Enter the front courtyard thru the archway of fragrant 'confederate jasmine'. You will notice the large orange tree in the courtyard as you approach the leaded glass double doorway. Inside there is a huge master bedroom with plenty of hanging storage and a King size bed. The new bath in the master has a jetted super tub with water jets massage. The shower has a large 'rain pan' above and wall mounted jets too.

The second bedroom has a Queen bed and mirrored dresser with a dressing area and the second bath is just across the hall. The third bed is a Queen Murphy bed in the office area near the computer station. Then there is also a couch that folds out to make a Queen bed in the sunroom.

The Kitchen has all new appliances including a cooking island/ bar area. The microwave convection oven and standard oven are just steps from the cook top. Plenty of silverware, dishes and glasses stocked nearby.

The living room features a 60 inch High Def TV and High Def Cable programming including NFL Sunday Ticket and NCAA Basketball programs. The TV equipment rack houses a Blue Ray DVD player.

The rear of the home faces the lake and has floor to ceiling glass windows the entire length of the house. Sliding glass patio doors open into a lush garden of exotic plants like bromiliads, orchids, ferns and the largest hanging 'staghorn fern' you have ever seen. The walkway to the boathouse is beautiful 'pavers' and above you are the low hanging branches of two hundred year old 'live oak' trees with Spanish moss hanging down.

The boat house is a perfect place for sunset parties or quiet and privacy may be your ticket. The patio portion of the dock is covered from rain and can easily accommodate 20 people. As you look west for your sunsets you can see the 'Seaplane Base' in Tavares just 2 miles away. Random landings and takeoffs are very cool to watch. Don't forget to check out the Eagles Nest 100 yards west of the dock. They hunt a sunset every night and the binoculars are hanging inside the boathouse. There are 2 Kayaks inside along with paddles and life preservers. If you bring your boat there is a Boat Cradle lift in the boathouse for up to a 22 foot boat. Larger boats like pontoon boats can be docked outside between the dock and a telephone pole sunk into the lakebed... It can accommodate boats up to 14 feet wide.

To the east of the house is a fenced in dog run area and even a dogie door into the tiled breezeway by the kitchen and there is a big yard for those walks outside.

Keywords: Luxury Home on Lake Dora Surrounded by Majestic Old Oak Trees with Spanish Moss.
No need to cross a road to get to the lake like other homes, it is right in your back yard.
