Property 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!

The rear of the house faces to the East, so the sunrises are spectacular. Most of the time there is a lovely breeze that drifts across the back of the property. If you are looking for a place where you can kick back, have a mint julep, and remember days gone by, this is it!

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. Spring Lake Rd runs crosswise between 441/27 and 466A--the main arteries of the Villages. The house is 5 minutes from the town of Fruitland Park and just a few miles to either Leesburg or Wildwood and just 3 miles to Colony Plaza in the Villages.We are just 55 miles from Orlando and 57 miles from Disney/Sea World. One and 1/2 hours from the Ocean and 1 hour to the Gulf. The perfect location for your getaway.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Nature, freedom, space, tranquility, wildlife
