Property description

Welcome to the nature Coast. Life is good at the lake. This is the place you didn't know you were looking for, but you know your home when you're there. This beautiful home has over 2600 sq.ft. of living space. The back porch alone is 480 sq.ft. plus. This beautiful home sits on a hill overlooking the open Lake of Tasala Apopka the 6th largest Lake in Florida. The lot size is over 1 acre plus in the beautiful area of Floral City, a one traffic light town. You are far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday, yet close to everything your heart could desire. Easy access to highways to get you to Tampa and Orlando. You are within walking distance of pontoon boat rentals. The beautiful lake views offer all of natures glory, from the great blue Heron's, the Eagles, the Hawk that makes our backyard its home, and of coarse, every Florida Lake has Alligators. Movie theater and large stores are just one Town North. Good restaurants all around. This area is surrounded by state and national parks. When you travel down old floral city Road you will note the great planning many years ago as the large oak trees canopy the beautiful drive. Within walking distance of the home is Florida's longest paved bicycle/walking trail, known as the Withalacoochee Trail. Along this trail you will find yourself back in time that once was, lake side views, Farms, Horse Ranches, and so much nature that will just cross your path.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: My family and I have always been adventures, of all that's out there. We explores, try out new things, and love having fun together! The kids were growing up fast and my wife and I wanted to enjoy them and keep them close by as long as we could. The Lake House! This was it, close to everything, but far enough away from everything. Also, a great place to possibly retire in. We just live 85 miles south of the lake house in Pinellas County.

Why Floral City, FL, USA:
Why this location, this beautiful home on the lake. Well, we searched all up and down west Central Florida, from the Gulf beaches to farmland. We specifically chose this location for its ease and convenience to everything. Also we chose the location for the seclusion of urban life. There are state parks, recreational areas, and beautiful back country roads all over. Where can you find a one traffic light town within 50 miles of Tampa.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What's unique to this property. Well, this is a one traffic light town that's within 50 miles of Tampa, a city that has it all! As I mentioned earlier, my family likes adventure. Within two blocks of this beautiful home is the Withalacoocee trail, the longest paved bicycle/walking trail in the state of Florida. There are state and national parks surrounding the area. We can hunt, horseback ride, sail, water ski, drive the curvy back roads, and enjoy all the local venues. It is motorcyclist or bicyclist paradise.
