In the midst of Central Florida's enormous development over the last four decades, every now and then one comes upon a place of peace reminiscent of Old Florida. This property is one of those, sitting beneath an ancient Heritage Oak, thousands of years old and on a cove once occupied by the area's Native Americans. In fact, in the 1980s, during a drought, a dug-out canoe, a thousand years old, was found along the shore in front of the house. It can be seen at the Orange County Historical Museum. From the deck, sunsets are breath-taking, and the nocturnal chorus from the lake's occupants is wonderful: frogs of many species, crickets, even bull gators. Away from light pollution, the night sky is a beautiful starry canopy, and breezes in the treetops is a lullaby.
Location, location, location: where easy access to everything meets the peace of natural Florida.
In addition to the well-known, nearby theme parks, Lakeridge Winery is just moments away in nearby Clermont and offers tours and special events; an hour north is Ocala and Marion County--serious horse country;

The Lake House is also perfectly situated to visit some of the areas older, wonderful attractions, such as Weeki Wachee Springs and its famous mermaids, and Brooksville Famous Flea Market. See the Worlds, but there is so much more to Central Florida to discover and love. The Lake House is perfectly situated to see it all.
