About the property

Delightful 2 Storey 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath Villa, Pool & Spa Backing Onto Old Forest

This two storey villa is a delightful spacious and airy home which invites peaceful relaxation, but is minutes away from all the fun, activity and excitement that one could wish for, whether it is the many theme park attractions, golf courses, airboat rides or just a swim in the pool. But see the list below for some of the other things to see and do.

Our house is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in Lake Wilson Preserve, a quiet community of villas designed to be perfect vacation homes. The massive south-facing pool deck, with a beautiful blue in-ground pool and heated spa, backs onto preserved native woodland, making it one of the most desirable locations you could find. The sheltered exit from the house to the pool deck has a lovely eating area shaded from the sun, and a full bathroom for washing off after your swim.

The enormous master bedroom at the back of the house has a tiled walk-out balcony looking out onto the lush forest. The bed is king-size, and the addition of a sofa makes a comfy reading nook at one end of the room. The full en-suite bathroom has an additional soaker-tub. Two other bedrooms and a full bathroom complete the upper floor. The fourth bedroom which on the main floor has a queen-size bed and adjacent full bathroom.

About Russell Flint

We are Rosalee and Russ, a couple of Canadians who live in Winnipeg and love the sun. Rosalee is an avid gardener at home and just keeps doing it when we are down south. Russ is a retired (sort of) teacher and business owner. We visit Lake Wilson twice a year to enjoy our house and check that everything is as it should be. Russ's hobby is gliding, so when the snow flies in Canada, Seminole Gliderport is only a half hour away from our villa.

Russell Flint purchased this villa in 2011

Why Russell Flint chose Lake Wilson Preserve

We learned about this property a year before it came on the market. It was on a quiet cul-de-sac with a lovely pool and spa, an enormous pool deck, and best of all the house backs onto old growth forest; no back-door neighbors except for the birds - sometimes an owl and occasionally an eagle. It was the right home for us, large and airy, with lots of space for visitors.

What makes this villa unique

Besides being the right house for us, it is also close to so many places to go and things to do.

All the necessaries are close by (a five minute drive) - food stores, pharmacies, banks, restaurants etc. And of course the many theme parks, Disney, Universal, Sea World, Fantasy of Flight and more all within an easy drive. Golf courses are everywhere!

Great home in wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home located in a quiet sub-division close to all of the attractions. The home was well equipped & had a beautiful private pool & spa backing a conservation area. The owner as well as the local property managers were great. We had to reschedule out a week due to the Hurricane & the owner moved our scheduled time without question. The local property managers also stopped by to check on us & go over any questions. Highly suggest this property to anyone looking for a great time in Central Florida!

Here are a few of the things we have discovered and enjoyed:

In and around Orlando:

The Orlando Science Center with activities and events appealing to all ages; the Orlando Eye, a slowly revolving Ferris wheel, matching the London Eye and giving views of the city from 400 feet high; Gatorland a different kind of theme park with lots of informative demonstrations and displays; an evening stroll around Downtown Disney to see the talented buskers and just enjoy people watching (it’s free – at least until you discover all the tempting places you can spend your money ).

Also at Downtown Disney are two venues featuring Cirque de Soleil and The Blue Man show. Both are excellent entertainment and well worth seeing.

Within easy driving distance from Lake Wilson:

Fantasy of Flight has daily flying demonstrations of historic aircraft, a museum with a huge collection of aircraft, some in the process of being renovated, and also airplane rides. There are also many special events through the year involving racing old speed boats, car trials ,motor bikes and of course aircraft.

Airboat rides to take you gator spotting.

Winter Park where you can take an informative boat cruise through three lakes connected by old narrow logging canals; or just enjoy the wide selection of boutiques and eating places in this old town.

Longer trips:

Drive east to the coast and the Kennedy Space Center. Take the tour, and expect to spend the day there.

Drive south to visit Bok Tower Gardens on the highest spot of land in Florida. You will find a unique Carillon Tower, with daily carillon concerts and pleasant walks around the beautiful park. There’s also a museum and a restaurant

Go west on the I-4 an hour and a half and you will be in Tampa/ St.Petersburg. Visit the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Pete which houses the largest collection of Dali’s work in the world. We were fascinated!

Don’t miss the pier!
