Lady Lake house description

Convenient to 'The Villages', our five and one half acre estate called 'Hidden Oaks', includes a fully furnished, air conditioned, 1600 sq ft ranch home located on an Old Florida setting in Fruitland Park, Fl. Get the best of both worlds! Enjoy the hustle and bustle of The Villages nearby, and then retreat to the peace and quiet of a country home in a parklike atmosphere.

Summertime--and the Living is Easy! For you vacationers that would like to visit Florida in the Summer, when the temperatures have risen, that is the perfect time to visit 'Hidden Oaks'. It is usually 10 to 15 degrees cooler in the shade of our huge Oak trees and with the breeze that flows through there, it makes the perfect summertime retreat. We also have a cottage available on our 'Hidden Oaks' estate--Listing #445508 with VRBO, under Lady Lake, Fl, if you would prefer something a little smaller, or rent both.

'Hidden Oaks' has a view of Spring Lake from all rooms at the rear of the home. The back yard is like a park with it's Majestic Oaks and beautiful trees and offers complete privacy from other neighbors. It sports a panoramic view and in addition to the lake view, it has a small pond surrounded by Cypress trees, where many species of birds choose to frequent. There are Sandhill Crane that come to visit , along with Ibis, Egrets, Cardinals, etc. Bring your binoculars for up-close views. You will see many squirrels hopping from tree to tree, along with tree ducks that come to roost in the huge oaks. It is a writer's and painter's paradise. The birds are singing with joy amongst this peaceful setting. There is a bench out back by the Oak tree along with a wisteria covered arbor with benches, where one can meditate..

The landscape around the house sports Roses, Hisbiscus, Camelias, Ligustrum, Azaleas, Lilly of the Nile, and many other beautiful bushes and plants. Many varieties of Citrus trees such as Tangerine, Orange, Lemon, Lime, Orange, and Grapefruit along with Loquats, Apple, Peach, Pecan and Fig have been planted by the owner for the viewer's pleasure and enhancement of the property. What a treat for the senses when these are in bloom!

                    Property is as described and they supplied it with all you would need. Very CLEAN home, and nice & cheery. Just bring your suitcases. We stayed for 6 weeks. Thank you, Clyde & Joyce.

                    Recommended for: Age 55+, people with disabilities, romantic getaway.

                    Owner response: Dear Mike and Joyce, Glad you enjoyed your stay, the way we decorated and supplied our home; and that you appreciated the cleanliness of the place. We are happy you can report you found it "as advertised". We put a great deal of work, time, and money into our "Hidden Oaks" to make it comfortable and enjoyable for our guests. Thank you for your great rating and review. Clyde and Joyce

                    I loved every second of my time on this property. Waking up as the sun was rising and taking a stroll around the property and the lake was one of my favorite things to do. The beauty of the property and the fantastic breeze blowing in off of the field/lake make this property a fantastic relaxation spot. Its tucked away from all the noise of the city but only minutes away if your feeling up to a little action. The home was supplied with everything I ever needed and loved that I felt immediately at home from the first day I moved in. The property owners are more than accomadating to any suggestions or needs you might have. It was pleasure to meet and speak with them and feel they are now great friends. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a majestic getaway with the quite relaxing feel of a country home combined with the ease of access and closeness of the city. Its about 10-15 mins to Lake Sumter Landing which is full of great food and entertainment, but tucked just far away to not have to worry about the noise of the city. I look forward to any opportunity to stay here again.

                    Recommended for: Adventure seekers, age 55+, people with disabilities, romantic getaway, families with young children, sightseeing.

                    Owner response: Dear Mundi, Thank you for your wonderful review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed Hidden Oaks so much that you stayed four months instead of the two you originally booked. We really appreciate the wonderful care you took of the place, and we were comfortable with you the moment we met you. We feel like you are part of the family and look forward to your staying again. It is truly a magical place and we hope it will draw special people, such as yourself, to it. Please stay in touch, and the "brownies" will be waiting.

                    This home is so peaceful. Just being there is relaxing. About 5 minutes away are restaurants and entertainment at The Villages. The owners do all the lawn maintenace and the place is immaculate, so you get to enjoy all the convenieces of the The Villages and come home to the privacy and comfort of the countryside. It is amazing. I would highly recommend this place.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: My husband and I are retired and live in The Villages. He was a professional gardener and took it up as a hobby when moving here. He loves the outdoors, and while we have a 'large lot' for the Villages, we missed having property. We moved here from Northeast Ohio and love Florida. I was a controller for auto dealerships. We are workaholics, and 'Hidden Oaks' was quite a challenge for us.

                  Why the Owner Chose Lady Lake:
                  It is 5 miles from our home and the best of both worlds. It is totally in the country, while the Villages is hustle and bustle. It offers the serenity of nature, but yet is within 10 minutes to all the things the Villages has to offer. It's location is perfect.
