Winter Park Villa Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
'Lakeside' is gracefully positioned on the shores of Lake Killarney in Winter Park (Orlando) Florida. A favorite among guests in the know. Golden sunrises and sunsets reflect on the pristine lake to celebrate the glorious day.
'Lakeside' was built for entertaining; it has become a popular and memorable setting for events.
'Lakeside' combines the convenience of 'in the city' while being immersed in an ecological habitat of rare birds and aquatic life on the shores of a peaceful serene lakeside setting. Cruise by boat (or auto) to the famed Houston's lakefront restaurant. Disney World is just a 20 minute drive and Daytona Beach an easy 50 minutes away. However everyone falls in love with the quaint town village of Winter Park (5 minutes)-- fondly referred to by local residents as 'little Europe'.
Winter Park is famous for its exclusive shopping, galleries & museums, and exquisite dining & eateries lining the cobblestoned 'Park Ave' and tree-shaded Central Park. The Morse Museum is home to the world's largest collection of Louis Tiffany glass. In the heart of the town village is 'Olde Winter Park'-- the exclusive residential address in Central Florida of celebrities, financiers, and professional athletes.
'Lakeside' is a 5,400 sq.ft. New England shingle coastal style 4 bedroom, 4 bath private family home. Constructed in 2009, the unique architectual design allows every living area to capture expansive views of beautiful Lake Killarney.
The home's living areas are spacious, comfortably appointed, and adorned with wooden beams, coffered ceilings, and accented by an 18' stone fireplace. For the musically inclined, a Steinway grand piano. The oversized octagonal dining room is surrounded by glass with uninterrupted lake views. For your reading pleasure, Lakeside's cherry-wood library holds more than 700 titles. Integrated into the library's design is a home theatre system equipped with a 54' LCD screen. The lakefront master suite is quiet and secluded with a master bath overlooking an atrium garden outside.
Lake Killarney (private access only) is a 300 acre spring-fed lake that serves as an eco-preserve for bald eagles, ospreys, great blue herons, and otters. Lake Killarney also enjoys a reputation for its bass fishing, water skiing, and boating. Lakeside has a large dock, private beach, and more than 285 feet of lake frontage. Central Florida is well known as a golfer's mecca with more than 50 courses available year-round-- Lakeside is located only 4 minutes from the vintage City of Orlando 'Dubsdread Golf Club'.
Lakeside is located on the west end of Winter Park which provides very easy access to Interstate 4, the main transportation artery connecting you to Disney, Universal,and Sea World in minutes as well as 3 State Parks and 7 Florida coastal beaches within a 1 hour drive.

What makes this villa unique
Winter Park is a very special place. If you come to Central Florida and only visit the Theme Parks, you will have a good time... but also miss out one of the most beautiful villages in the State of Florida. Winter Park is a unique combination of a quiet, peaceful, brick-paved residential community, yet a bustling Park Avenue brimming with up-scale shopping, dining, parks, and museums. Disney is artificial fun--- Winter Park is authentic enjoyment. Winter Park is unlike any other place in Florida...you don't want to miss it.
