Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I am a business owner in Sebring. I bought this home for a ministry of mine, I plan to use in the future, when I retire in a few years called 'A Place for dad'. My mother died unexpectedly and dad was left all alone. That generation the wife played the traditional role of Cook and housekeeper. My father was left alone, with no coping skills. I feel if he had a home to go to where he had a cook and housekeeper and similar friends he would have had more meaning to his life and cherished it more. Until I have the time to make my dream come true, I want to share this Blessings with others who will respect and love it like myself. I hope it will bring many fond memories to those who enter.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:
This property exudes Peace and joy. Lake Placid is a #1 place of retirement. I spent 6 months redecorating a '70's house with Love. It has brought me much healing in a time of difficulty . I love this house, too big for just me, so Ill gladly share so others can enjoy my blessing, by renting either level, or all of this property. Perfect for a family reunion. Eventually I will retire in this home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As soon as you turn into the driveway a beautiful yellow dogwood was in full bloom. Beautiful moss filled oak trees blow lightly in the breeze with the red brick home behind the split rail fence, laid out so nicely in the mist of them. Single story from the front of home, you walk in and immediate see the spectacular view of the lake thru the large sliding glass windows. Hard wood floors, cool painted walls, and an inviting presence. Lots of light and character. The layout of the back yard is unique with spit levels, a stairway down to the dock and a rope guardrail. The osprey gather in 3 trees around the lake and I watch them fish for their breakfast and lunch daily. A group of raccoons play in the tree outside the bedroom window at night sometimes. An owl perches on the rail while turtles sunbathe on the shore. Fish actually follow you around on the kayak. The spring fed water is perfect for swimming or floating in your raft! No gas motors allowed. ( 2 lakes with in 1 mile for gas motor boats, can park here in extra lot).Very close to all local hot spots. Many sleeping arrangement's can be made with placement of furniture. Large game room downstairs. Pool table, ping pong and darts.
