About the Property
Enjoy a peaceful respite at our lakeside gem. 2 bedroom/2 bath on 5 wooded acre
Beautiful Old Florida Lake House - Experience real Florida. Best of both worlds - great location for access to local attractions yet privately tucked away in a shaded lakeside cove. Relax by the lake or explore nearby Tampa attractions - Busch Gardens, Florida Aquarium, Adventure Island, USF, University of Tampa, Ybor City, the Straz Center, Lowry Park Zoo, The Florida Aquarium, Amalie Arena - all less than 30 minutes. 45 minutes to downtown St. Petersburg. 10 miles (20 minutes) to the Raymond James Stadium. If you love outdoor adventure, opportunities abound - kayak clear Weeki Wachee Springs or the dark tannin Hillsborough River for excellent viewing of alligators and abundant birds (both within a 30-45 minute drive). Award winning white sand beaches and boating to islands are available within a 45 minute drive. This Florida cypress and heart wood pine home exemplifies Florida Cracker houses with modern comforts. Connect with nature in the spacious open living room adjacent to a 500 foot screened in lanai. The downstairs bedroom has it's own bathroom and large walk in shower with dual shower heads. Walk upstairs to the second bedroom where you will find a comfortable queen sized bed, wood floors and private bath with a shower/bathtub. There is plenty of natural light throughout and the home opens to views of the majestic Cypress trees and 50 acre Saddleback Lake. Wood and tile floors throughout. TV with netflix & hulu, washer & dryer, canoe, lakeside deck, bbq. Nature, comfort, convenience to shopping, restaurants and attractions.
