About Elizabeth Byrd
My name is Elizabeth Byrd. When people ask me how a 'girl' from Seattle ended up in Central Florida, I say, 'the usual reason..a man!' My husband, Jim, a Miami native, and I met in Seattle. When we decided to move to Florida, we chose Lake County for its beautiful lakes (I can live without mountains but not water), climate, and accessibility to large cities without having to live in one. I discovered right away that sunshine is addictive!
Our children are all grown with their own families. Two live in Lake County and two out of state.
Elizabeth Byrd purchased this apartment in 1989
Why Elizabeth Byrd chose Eustis
When I first saw this property 23 years ago with its two old houses, I felt like I had come home --which is a pretty far stretch for a city girl! It was perfect for us with its front house for us, a shop for my husband, and the back house for my mother-in-law. After her death, we turned her home into a rental. The main part of the house has been rented by one person for many years. In 2013 we started renting the downstairs apartment as a furnished seasonal rental. It was a great decision! We have made many new friends. This summer and fall we have had two long term rentals to couples who were house hunting in Florida. We still live on the property in the front house, so we are here to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Come see us soon. Current availability.... A four month rental will be ending September 30. which frees up our schedule for the balance of the year and January 2015.
What makes this apartment unique
Did you ever watch 'This Old House?' Well we have two of them. The front house was built in 1924 and the back (rental) house was built in 1936. Like many others in Lake County, the property was originally an orange grove. No orange trees left, but we have lots of beautiful old oaks. The back 5 acres is mostly pasture with some woods in back. Living here keeps us in touch with times gone by when life moved at a slower pace and you took time to watch the breeze ruffle the ferns and smell the roses!
