Highlands Reserve bungalow description

Our beautiful, single-story, four bedroom, two bath home is located in a peaceful corner of Highlands Reserve.

Newly refurbished in April 2007 during our Easter holiday.

Split into a Formal Dining Area and Formal Lounge Sitting Area we believe our home is extremely relaxing, especially after a long day at one of the theme parks. We have though provided options to hopefully keep everyone happy and occupied: a large TV with Digital Cable, a DVD player and a Playstation2 with one controller and several games provided. The Games Area in the garage includes pool table, table tennis, air hockey, table football, tennis rackets and balls. There is something to keep all interests happy.

The fully-equipped Kitchen with Breakfast Room has everything you require to make your stay easy and comfortable - even a teapot! The Laundry Room has a washer and dryer and there is space in the garage to hang clothes too. A cleaner can be arranged at extra cost to come in during your stay.

A high chair and travel cot are also available for our smaller guests - at no extra charge.

The bedrooms are: Master Suite with king bed and large walk-in Shower Room, a Queen Bedroom, two Twin Bedrooms, and a full bathroom. The Master and Queen bedrooms both have Cable TV as does one of the twin rooms.

The heated pool (with 4 reclining sunloungers and other patio furniture) overlooks the golf course and gets the wonderful Florida sun all day, but there is also plenty of shade as well with the covered lanai. Ideal for relaxing with a drink and a barbecue after a day at the parks. Switch on the pool lights and sit and enjoy the sun set with a large glass of wine or a beer while hubby cooks!

As our guests you can also enjoy the following benefits: Highlands Reserve offers a Mike Dasher designed, championship 18-hole golf course, and you also have free access to an all-weather tennis court, a children's play area, and a community swimming pool.

Situated next door to the community is a Publix Supermarket, a hairdresser, a nail bar, several take-out restaurants, an Applebees restaurant along with several other stores. Other restaurants are not far away. Wahlgreens is 5minutes down the road.

Highlands Reserve is approximately a 15 minute drive from Disney, but needless to say this depends on traffic conditions and time of day. We are also less than an hour from Busch Gardens.

Linens and towels are provided, along with pool towels.

Free calls within the USA/Canada/Puerto Rico are now also possible, along with free wireless internet access for those who can't switch off!

                      Car: Necessary

                      Situated within the prestigious community of Highlands Reserve Golf & Country Club, which is located off highway 27 heading south from the western end of highway 192 and close to the I-4, we are surrounded by beautiful Floridian pine trees and orange groves which make up the local countryside. Our home is conveniently placed for all central Florida attractions, with Disney only 15-20 minutes away and Orlando airport approximately 30 minutes (traffic permitting naturally)

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: My husband and I have been together for 25 years. With two daughters, now aged 17 and 20, and a labrador, we live in England near the New Forest in Dorset. Alwyn is originally from North Wales and I grew up in Surrey - we met in Germany, working for the American Air Force! We've spent time over the years in Germany, followed by England and then recently spent 5 years in Dubai.

                      Why the Owner Chose Highlands Reserve:
                      We walked through the front door and could see straight away how private and peaceful it would be out by the pool - the biggest plus-point for me by far! Whilst we have neighbors to left and right we are not overlooked at the back of the property at all. We stopped house hunting then and there and put an offer in.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                      Added to the privacy at the back, the front of the house is also set back from the road almost at the end of Troon Circle, so we get very little traffic and no road noise at all. Highlands Reserve is a beautiful place to own a home and we hope you find this to be so when you stay. It is ideally situated for Disney, and the East and West coast are not too far a drive for a trip out.
