Lakefront Home by a Citrus Grove
Originally from Oneonta, New York State.
Anne purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Anne chose Winter Haven
I inherited this property from my mother, who in turn took it over from my grandmother. The neighboring groves have long been sold off to my next-door neighbor, who is one of the largest citrus growers in Florida. This house represents a major slice of my family's history and it was handed down to me to be its new caretaker and owner.
What makes this Apartment unique
The view, it's all about the view from the veranda. Not just the lake and its amazing sunsets, it's the wildlife that surrounds the building, bird calls, flocks of egrets, soaring eagles above. The privacy of the property is unique without living in the wilderness. Enough activity around to not feel alone.

Needs a lot of work. 1. Bedding would not stay on bed. Mattress pad kept coming off- poor quality. Limited hot water. Had to wait at least 10-15 miniutes between two quick showers for both to have hot water. The lake view was terrific but this time of year the blind mosquitoes (midges) we’re so bad you couldn’t stay near the water. The nice poarch was redone but needs new cushions and pillows to make chairs comfortable. We found the kitchen to be minimal and preparing meals challenging. It is a neat old grove estate that needs a little more fixing up for the price
Thanks for your feedback. Your issues above have been addressed and rectified as far as possible. This is an antique and very unique house with a wonderful history and a great location, but as old houses go it does has its limitations. The house is directly on the lake, depending on the season there are mosquitoes to be expected outdoors. However, if you like watching many birds and other wildlife at your doorstep, please come and enjoy this wonderful quaint house for a very reasonable price.
