Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Originally from San Francisco, California we grew up visiting the original Disneyland in Los Angeles. After visiting it with our kids when they were 2 years old, we made a point to visit Disneyworld while they still looked under 3 years old. We loved Disneyworld and Florida so much that we decided to move closer to Mickey's World. We are very much in love with everything Disney and have chosen Central Florida as a home base because we enjoy visiting the theme parks and the beaches. We prefer to spend time here during the low season when the lines at Disney and Universal are much shorter. Our children are homeschooled so we enjoy the luxury of being able to live in a few different places. My husband has family in Mexico, Spain, New York and California. I have family in California, Chicago and Japan.
Why the Owner Chose Kissimmee, FL, USA:
We purchased this property because we are in love with the Oak trees. The landscape took our breathe away and continues to do so every time we wake up and look out the sliding glass windows. Having direct private access to the lake is an added bonus. Makison Island is not too far of a ride away and you can easily dock there and enjoy the nature trail that circumnavigates the island sanctuary.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Everyone loves the heated indoor pool and the fact that they can swim day or night. Since this property is right on Lake Tohopekaliga, if you care enough to spend some time outside in the yard, you will find a wealth of wildlife, including: American bald eagles, buzzards, woodpeckers, deer, sandhill cranes, owls, armadillos, turtles, birds and a wide variety of butterflies. The owners are often away traveling as the kids are 'world schooled' and during the summers they enjoy a beach house 2 hours away. Occasionally you can find them staying in the detached cottage (actually it's a yurt, for those who know what that is) on the property. It's plenty far away from the main house and this allows for any necessary work on the property to get completed without disturbing your vacation. If this is a concern, please inquire as this (travel/maintenance) schedule is often made well in advance.
