Property description

The master bedroom is located en suite in the opposite side of the house from the other two bedrooms, permitting privacy for two families to share. A large pool area, overlooked from the dining room-kitchen or the lanai, mature tropical plants and flowers in the garden, makes this an ideal home away from home. 5 minutes from the Polk Parkway, gives you access to the entire spectrum of central Florida attractions, beaches and activities. Don´t forget the 30+ golf courses in Lakeland itself, the unique Frank Lloyd Wright architecture in the city center, the lake walks or the many restaurant choices nearby.

Ideally situated in central Florida, with easy access to the known 'attractions,' like Disney, (50 minutes), Legoland (30 minutes), Bok Tower Gardens built on the highest point in Florida (40 minutes) the Tampa Bay areas many fine beaches and night-life, as well as the incredible nature that most tourists seem to miss. Paddle down the river in a canoe or kayak, viewing the birds, wildlife, and wild flowers. In Lakeland itself, the historic Polk theatre has live music, the university buildings are one of the largest collections of Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings, the lake in town with many water-fowl and a running, cycling and skating path all round. Explore the old cobble-stone areas of the city center or play golf on one of the 30+ golf courses in Lakeland. Lakeland-Linder airport is home to the second largest fly-in and air show in the world, after Oshkosh. The museums at the airport satisfy the aviation interested. Are you a pilot, take your seaplane rating nearby. Radio-controlled pilots will also find a great field for their interests with many world-champion aircraft based in the area, as well as a manufacturer.

Compared to a hotel, in our well/equipped kitchen, you can save by preparing many of your meals, have a tea or coffee when it suits you, relax in your own pool or go for a quiet walk in the friendly residential area.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Owned by a Nordic family, whose work led them to Florida, then back to Europe, it was a sad thing to cut the ties to our Florida home. By sharing it with others, we share the local joys, the weather, the relaxing lifestyle, and can still keep the house for when we can get back. Many friends, family and friends we have not yet met have stayed and keep coming back for Sun n Fun, the beaches, golf, tennis, birdwatching and the Orlando-area attractions. Easy to get to, and a welcome relief to leave the other tourists behind to their hectic stays at plastic hotels and come 'home.' Pick up fresh sushi from the sushi chef at Publix, eat at one of the area restaurants, grill poolside, it just feels good here!

Why the Owner Chose Lakeland, FL, USA:
Of course, the kids can play in a hotel pool, but what a joy to have them just outside the window. Relax with a book in the lanai if the sun is too hot midday, or under the parasol outside. The friendly neighbors and quiet area, yet just 5 minutes to the Polk Parkway and the interstate to Tampa or Orlando. Bring your own bikes and cruise the secondary roads to Daytona, out to the Gulf beaches, view the manatees or what-ever catches your fancy. Want a dip after putting the youngest to bed? Light up the underwater lights and night-swim. Cap it off with a glass of wine or a beer under the stars.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great pool, fully-equiped house, from good beds to a well-stocked library in Danish, English, and some German books. Our DVD and CD collections are also available for viewing and listening. Sit in the lanai an evening with a major thunderstorm. Inside, yet outside, with Nature providing a lightshow with soundtrack, the thunder rolling to compete with the music while you chat together round the teak table.
