Property description

Flowering purple plumbago and massive oaks great our guests as the pull up to a classic 40's Winter Park home with a walled tropical pool enclave with lanai, outdoor kitchen, beautiful oaks and plenty of deck for sunning. Because Sunflower Cottage is centrally located to both downtown Orlando and the heart of Winter Park, the best of the area’s cultural life is just minutes away - to include the theater and antique districts. It is one block from Mead Gardens and within walking or biking distance of Park Avenue, Hannibal Square, Rollins College, the Winter Park Tennis Club, the Morse Museum, the Orlando Museum of Art, the Planetarium, and the famous scenic boat tour. Walking and/or biking is easy to Park Avenue (with its numerous bars and restaurants from concrete floored southern victuals to 5 star restaurants. Don't leave without experiencing 4 Rivers Bar-B-Que - you won't be sorry. It's a short ten minute drive to the downtown district with the new Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center, the Bob Carr Auditorium, and the Amway Center, home of the Orlando Magic.

Winter Park, one of Florida's finest cities, is legendary for its stately trees, abundant parks, brick-lined streets, spectacular homes, world-class museums, vibrant lakes, and fine shops and dining along Park Avenue and in Hannibal Square. The Saturday Farmers Market is famous for its fruits, vegetables, and other delectable farm fresh foods. Also renowned is the golf course at the Winter Park Country Club, which winds its way through the downtown Winter Park area and provides a challenge to even the most experienced golfer. Their are a multitude of golf courses in central Florida with something for every level of golfer. Winter Park is also host to an annual Bach festival, as well as art and car shows - all right on Park Avenue.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I lived on Orlando until I was 6. Then the booming space program called my family to Brevard County. I lived on the Space Coast for 45 years until something (OK, a woman) lured me back to Orange County. I lived downtown in a beautiful old 1925 home until recently making the move to Winter Park to own and manage this property.

Why the Owner Chose Northeast Orlando, Orlando, FL, USA:
I fell in love with the pool area as soon as I saw it and I think you will too. I love travelling the Caribbean and the vivid blue walls surrounding the pool immediately brought me back to the Abacos or British Virgin islands. I loved the location, the large lot with oaks and flowering plumbago and the comfortable feel that made this house a home. We completely renovated the unit including a completely new kitchen and then decorated with a clean, comfortable look that retains the feel of Winter Park.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The most unique aspect of this house is that it feels like a home the minute you walk in the front door. The décor is sophisticated but never stuffy. After just a few minutes you will feel like you have been there from every. It quickly becomes YOUR Winter Park home!
