Property description

This Courtyard Villa has a beautiful large open kitchen. We can't even imagine how to fill all the cupboard space. The kitchen has a full length bar/pass-thru open to the dining and living area and an ample pantry off to the side. The overall house plan is open and inviting. Particularly if you are entertaining, you are always within ear and eye shot of your guests.

The floors were just recently done in a rich wood throughout with the main living areas and master bedroom. The lanai was also recently redone in a very nice tile. The guest bedrooms have comfortable wall-to-wall carpet.

All three bedrooms contain queen size beds (so no arguing who gets the larger bed:-). The Master Bedroom is furnished in an old world white, while the Second Bedroom is Mission style. The Third Bedroom has a Murphy bed (queen size) with a small office setup with desk and chair - the perfect spot to check your e-mail or scan the Internet.

The Master Bedroom has a large walk-in closet and also a flat screen LED TV with a built in DVD player for those evenings when you simply want to relax in bed and watch your favorite program or DVD. You can also step outside from the Master Bedroom through your private entrance onto the lanai for a breath of fresh air.

The Master Bath has a nice sized walk-in shower, while the Guest Bath has a full size tub and shower.

The Guest bedroom and bathroom can be separated from the main living area by closing a pocket door.

The living space has an entry to the lanai and also a large flat panel TV and DVD player for your watching enjoyment. A variety of table games are also included.

The fully enclosed lanai is a great addition in that you can use it year-round. The floor-to-ceiling glass panes can slide closed to keep the rain out, or slide open to allow the fresh air in thru the screens.

Outside the lanai is a wonderful custom patio area which is perfect for that first cup of coffee, reading the newspaper, or even maybe privately working on your tan since the backyard of this Courtyard Villa is completely enclosed for privacy. Plus there is a propane gas grill for those you love to do a bit of 'grillin'.

The garage provides ample parking for your one car (needed only to come in and leave from your vacation) and a golf cart (main mode of transportation while in The Villages).

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: My Father-in-Law has been living in The Villages for 18 years. Living nearby, we visited him often while our kids were growing up. It didn't take long before we knew we wanted to also retire there someday. When a 2/2 villa right outside of Lake Sumter Landing in Virginia Trace became available, we were hooked and immediately bought. Then recently we decided that we really wanted a 3/2 but didn't want to leave everything that Virginia Trace offered. When one became available right around the corner, we sold the 2/2 and bought the 3/2. Then my cousin decided that he also wanted a home in The Villages (after using our home for a number of visits), and so we purchased another home - which is the one we are renting here. My wife and I are professionals: Judy is a Speech/Language Therapist for 'special needs' children and I am a VP of Engineering. My cousin is a Finance Professional in Europe and all three of us are still working long hours until we retire but enjoy our get-aways in The Villages when the house is available. My wife and I love managing the two homes and meeting all the people who come to enjoy The Villages. We do most of our e-mail and phone call responses in the evenings and weekends.

Why Virginia Trace:
Location, location, location! Being able to take a 10 minute walk and be in the heart of all the Lake Sumter Landing activities is incredible. Being able to drive a car or golf cart to the same activities is nice, but having the option to walk is fantastic. Plus 5 minutes into the walk, you are at the Community Center with swimming, dog walk, horse shoes, and shuffleboard. Of course, all 30 Executive golf courses and 11 Championship courses only a short golf cart ride away is 'icing on the cake'.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
if you enjoy a drink or two at the free music nightly at the Lake Sumter Landing town square, you can easily walk home. You don't need to worry about driving your car or golf cart and possible 'problems'. Or if you prefer to have a nightcap at home, you can go out into the back yard and still listen to the music coming from the square (not too loud though). The lanai affords protection from the weather when needed or opening up the full height sliding glass panels to let the fresh air in through the full height screens. Of course, you can always step outside the lanai and enjoy the fresh outdoor on the custom back patio.
