Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Walter King Laidler, Jr. is a Lakeland, FL native who earned a high school diploma from Rochelle Senior High School (1967), an Associate of Arts Degree from Polk Community College, Winter Haven, FL (1970), a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Vocal Music Education from the Univ. of South Florida, Tampa, FL (1973), and a Master of Divinity Degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, So. Hamilton, MA (1980). Walter taught choral music and English 13 years in Polk County Schools before entering ministry full-time as founder of Christ Community Christian Center, June 12, 1989. Pastor Laidler was licensed in 1978 and ordained an elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, 1981. Walter was also ordained a Baptist minister in 1982. Pastors Walter and Carrie founded and have pastored the Christ Community Christian Center Church since 1983. Carrie Ada Lewis Laidler is a Greensboro, NC native who graduated from James B. Dudley High School (1970), earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education at Livingstone College, Salisbury, NC (1974). Carrie also did post-graduate studies at the Boston Conservatory of Music in Voice Performance (Boston, MA). Carrie taught music 4 years in Boston Public Schools; 5years in Polk County Florida schools; home schooled our children for 10 years; and began Christ Community Academy where she taught 10 years. She serves as a staff pastor, Executive Vice President, Elder of Worship and Arts, and Church Program Administrator of Christ Community Christian Center Church. Pastors Walter and Carrie have four adult children, Dorcas, Jessica, Christa, and Walter, III; one son-in-law Darrian, Jr., and three grandsons.

Why the Owner Chose Lakeland:
Based on need, we will consider YEAR-ROUND, different room combinations and rates...see rates in the 'Notes' section. Carrie and I chose Lone Palm because it is centrally located---5-minutes from downtown Lakeland, The Lakeland Mall, to the North; Lakeland Town Center to the South; 1/4 mile to Interstate East, just 25 minutes to Disney, Magic Kingdom, Sea World, Orlando International Airport another 30 minutes East. Traveling West on I-4 just 25-minutes away is Tampa's Busch Gardens, Ybor City night life, International Mall, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Raymond James Stadium, Tampa International Airport, Univ of South Floria, Univ of Tampa. Lone Palm comprises 105 large beautiful private homes with the smallest lot size being .75 acre to 1-acre. Since 1964, the Lone Palm subdivision has been one of the premier destinations for private golf clubs in central Florida. Established by Publix founder George Jenkins, Lone Palm has a firm commitment to providing unsurpassed golf, social and dining experiences for all of its members and guests. Sprawled across nearly 400 acres of serene Florida landscape, the course is a joy to play for both seasoned golfers and beginners alike. The club offers casual, friendly atmosphere and is the perfect place to bring your family or to host an event.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unique benefit travelers will enjoy in the quiet place 'that is close to everything' is a custom-built Hulbert Home designed by Walter and Carrie. Our home sits on a spacious lot with mature oak and drake elm trees and boasts a split-floor plan with Bedroom 1 and full-bath on the west side and a suite with Bedrooms 2,3, and 4 and 2 full baths on the east side that includes a study center. Volume ceilings, 7', 9' and 12' crown molding and headers are thru out. Only 5 minutes to shopping and medical facilities. Lone Palm is 0.4miles off I-4 at exit 28.
