Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We have lived in this area since 1983 and purchased this property in 1998. We raised our two children here, and now enjoy family gatherings here as well. Since the children have left the nest to raise their own families we have been renting the guest apartment since 2008.

Why the Owner Chose Winter Springs, FL, USA:
My wife and I fell in love with this lakefront property when we first saw it in 1998. We were actually getting bids from contractors to build a new house on another piece of property we purchased several years earlier, but that property was not on a lake. When we saw this property we decided it was perfect for us even though it needed extensive renovations. Looking back on our decision to sell the land and purchase this house on the water was the right decision. We both love our lakefront paradise.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You can enjoy a beautiful sunrise from the apartment balcony or a sunset from the dock. You can see satellite launches from the space coast on clear days or nights. You can see water skiers run the ski course. You can see some form of wildlife whether it be ducks, heron, ospreys, hawks, eagles, birds, turtles etc... You can fish, swim in the pool or lake, enjoy the hot tub, use the canoe or paddle board, sit in the hammock, or just relax while staying at this waterfront environment. Central location allows driving to Disney, Universal Studios, Kennedy Space Center or the Beaches in less than an hour. UCF, Rollins College, and Winter Park are within 20 minutes by car. Grocery, restaurants, and other shopping conveniently located within 5 minute drive. We feel incredibly lucky to be able to enjoy our lakefront paradise on a daily basis. Most renters that stay here seem to feel the same way. Many enjoy our property so much they have become repeat renters.
