This beautiful 2000 square-foot executive 'heated-pool' home is located in an exclusive golf-course community called 'The Estates'. It is a very quiet environment of up-scale, well-kept, professionally-landscaped homes. My particular home is handicap accessible and is very clean with beautiful interior decorations and very fine furniture. If you appreciate well made furniture of yesteryear when cherry, mahogany, oak, and other exotic wood was used to make furniture then you'll appreciate our interior decorum. Even the tables in the living room are topped with fine Italian marble. What you'll find in most of the vacation rental homes is 'Florida' furniture.
If you enjoy golf then you'll appreciate that 'The Links' golf course, considered one of the finest in the area, is within walking distance of the home. Many residents, do, in fact, walk to the clubhouse. The clubhouse is free for your use as my guest and you'll find a complete exercise room as well as other amenities such as a pool table, lounge area, etc. There's even a community pool if you're so inclined to use it. Most folks simply prefer to walk out their own door and enjoy their own private pool. The swimming pool is a very large 16' x 32' and is heated by an efficient heat pump. Please note that pool heating is optional at a cost of $10/day. If it's the beach that you prefer, you'll find our local Hudson Beach to be a short 10 minute drive away.
As soon as you walk through the double front doors of this beautiful home you'll immediately notice the cathedral ceiling of this lovely living room with the very fine furniture that I mentioned earlier. You'll be able to enjoy the television and DVD/VCR player that's availabe to you there. There's also a nice stereo system mounted in the entertainment center. One of the nicest views from the living room is the pool. There's a set of double slider doors right there for you to use to access the lanai and pool area. In fact many of my past guests have commented to us about nice it is to enjoy dinner 'pool-side' while taking in the beautiful Florida sunset and the warm gulf breezes. There are two sets of patio furniture under that lanai which allows you to invite your friends over for a nice get-together while utilizing the extra-large stainless steel BBQ grilling station. Please note that if you use the BBQ grill there will be a $100 fee to clean it for you if you choose not to leave it in the same clean condition that you found it in when you depart.
When it comes to the accommodations, I think most of my guests have been pleased with the very spacious 14' x 20' master bedroom. In your own private retreat you'll find a 'California King' king-size bed with upgraded mattress & box springs. You'll also find a very large walk-in closet with enough room for two wardrobes worth of clothing. It’s so large that I’ve stored an extra twin-size bed in it just in case you need to set this up for a child or infant within the extra-large master bedroom. Attached to the master bedroom is a beautiful tiled master bathroom featuring double sinks, a jetted garden whirlpool tub, a two-person tiled glass shower, and a private enclosed toilet area.
On the opposite end of the house are the second and third bedrooms. This floor plan allows ample privacy for all guests. The second bedroom features a large closet and a newer mattress & box spring set. The third bedroom features two twin beds with newer mattresses and box springs. You’ll also find two chests of drawers for storing clothes. This particular bedroom also has a nice set of sliders that overlook the pool and allow immediate access to that pool if desired. Separating these bedrooms is a full bathroom with large walk-in tiled shower, double sinks, and toilet. There’s also a linen closet for towels, etc.
In the kitchen you’ll find all the necessities that make a house a home. The refrigerator has a built-in ice maker and the kitchen faucet has a “filtered water” option. You'll also notice that the dishwasher has been updated with a large-capacity, multi-cycle Whirlpool model. In the laundry room you’ll find a large capacity washer & dryer which are aided by the whole-house water softener. Throughout the home you’ll find ceiling fans for circulating the warm gulf breezes. I also have a nice two-car garage that you’re welcome to park your car in when you’re staying as a guest. To aid you in 'staying in touch' I've added high-speed Internet service and free calling to all of the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico.
There are several grocery stores and a wide variety of restaurants just a few minutes away. I also strongly recommend that you take a pleasant 20 minute drive north of Hudson to Weekee Watchee, in Homosassa Springs, where the manatees play. If you've never seen these gentle giants of sea before it's well worth your time to check this out!
PLEASE NOTE: THIS HOME IS A LONG-TERM RENTAL HOME. This means that it can only be rented for periods of 30 days or longer. This is due to “deed restrictions” in “The Estates” area. If your intended stay is for a period shorter than 30 days feel free to contact me for a recommendation to other vacation home owners who may be able to offer you accommodations. If you have any further questions about the home please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you for considering my beautiful 'Jewel in the Rough'!
I inherited this fine home from my parents and I chose to retain it rather than sell it. I hope to one day retire to the home and would like others to be able to enjoy the home until that day comes.
My home is located in a very quiet, serene community. There are neighborhood patrols who regularly drive through the area in an effort to keep everyone safe. I've had any problems with crime and this is one of the reasons that I enjoy the area so much. The beach is just a few short minutes away by car and it's a smaller, more intimate beach so you don't feel 'crowded'. My area is far enough north of the 'big city life' but not too far in case you want to take a day trip to Tampa or St. Pete.
