About Lars

I grew up in Lemvig, Denmark, and have lived in the Tampa area for 20 plus years now. I bought this house as an investment and have enjoyed managing it. I am a real estate broker and investor helping many homebuyers/ investors buy and sell real estate in Florida. Many buyers are from foreign countries.

Lars purchased this house in 2005

Why Lars chose Wilson Lake

The house is situated on a private lake where you can relax and enjoy the day, or where it is very convenient to get to the heart of the Tampa Bay area. Easy drive from the airport.

What makes this house unique

the lake and all the quiet peacefulness are just awesome

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed this vacation home. We stayed there for one month. The owner was very accommodating and acts quickly when a problem arises. The kitchen is well stocked with all a person needs, the space inside the house is really great for a family of 4 like mine. My kids (8&11) enjoyed going on the paddle boat on the lake. The view from the house is spectacular; lots of trees and the yard is well taking care of. The only thing we didn't like about the house is the furnishing of the family room. Couches are out dated and one is broken from the left bottom side which makes you sink in it when sitting. I recommend new family room small furniture that fits appropriately to accommodate the small size of the room. Overall, the house is cozy and great for a small family. The neighborhood is very quiet and family oriented. The house is off Del Mabry Blvd with lots of shopping opportunities and very close to all amenities and recreational areas, including beaches.

Car: recommended

Property is located just off of the Veterans express way, at the Dale Mabry Exit. It is 1.2 miles north of the exit ramps, which is just north of Cheval Golf and Country Club, one of the more elite communities in Tampa. When you arrive at the property you will be impressed with how close you are to all amenities (Grocery Store and Target are about two miles north) but how peaceful and quiet the property and community are. Parking is plentiful.

Golf: TPC Tampa Golf is located at 5300 West Lutz lake Fern Road and is 2.3 miles from the house. TPC is an awesome course and one that you will thuroughly enjoy.
