Our Courtyard Villa has an open and inviting floor plan. Particularly if you are entertaining, you are always within ear and eye shot of your guests.
The home was recently redone in large neutral tile, new paint, crown molding, custom valances, soft rugs, and new decor throughout including some wonderful seascape paintings by a local artist.
It has a beautiful large open kitchen with lots of cupboards and a small rollable center work island. The kitchen has a full length bar/pass-thru open to the dining and living area and an ample pantry off to the side. There are 4 nice padded swivel bar stools if you chose to eat at the pass thru.
The Master Bedroom has a king size bed furnished in an old world white. It also has a large walk-in closet with plenty of storage. A 32' wall mounted flat screen LED TV with a built in DVD player is provided 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 Guest Bedroom (second bedroom) has a queen size bed and is also furnished in the old world white color. This bedroom also has a 32' wall mounted flat screen LED TV with a built in DVD player for your guests.
The Third Bedroom has Trundle Bed with lots of comfortable pillows for just lounging around and reading a good book. It also has a pull out single bed and storage underneath allowing for sleeping for two guests with the option to put the beds together or leave them as individuals. Also, within this room is a small sitting area by the window consisting of a table and two chairs. This is the perfect room to relax in, check your e-mail or scan the Internet.
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 simply closing a pocket door.
The Living Room has an entry to the lanai and also a large 46' flat panel TV and DVD player for your watching enjoyment. A variety of table games, DVDs and books are also included.
The screen enclosed lanai is a great addition to the home providing a nice area to eat or lounge outside but still somewhat protected. The full height screens let in just the right amount of fresh air.
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).
It's called 'Disney World for Adults' for a reason. This is really resort living at it's finest. Everything you can imagine is here and reachable by golf cart. No stress or worries allowed. Just fun!...moreless

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: My Father-in-Law has been living in The Villages for 20+ 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. My wife and I are professionals: Judy is a Speech/Language Therapist for 'special needs' children and I am a VP of Engineering. Both of are still working long hours until we retire but enjoy our get-aways in The Villages when the house is available. We do most of our e-mail and phone call responses in the evenings and weekends.
Why the Owner Chose 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 with its full height screen panels to let the fresh air in. Of course, you can always step outside the lanai and enjoy the full outdoors on the custom enclosed back patio.
