We are a couple of retired British teachers who have lived in North Norfolk for 35 years but who love to spend time in our Florida home during the winter months.
We are proud of our luxury villa set in beautiful surroundings overlooking a lake within a small gated community. As we spend many months here each year ourselves we are able to keep it in tip-top condition. A typical guest comment is that this villa is 'by far the best they have stayed in' and that ours is 'top of the list'.
We chose to buy here because of its proximity to Sarasota and all that this city has to offer. It has wonderful beaches, shopping malls, including the new University Town Centre, a multitude of restaurants as well as easy access to many cultural facilities such as cinemas, theatres, the opera house, and concert halls. It is a golfers paradise with courses to suit all abilities nearby. Other sporting facilities include boating/sailing or kayaking on the bay, rowing at the new International Rowing Centre or even watching polo at Lakewood Ranch.
We fell in love with this villa when we opened the front door and saw uninterrupted views to the pool area and the sparkling lake and wildlife beyond. There is a feeling of spaciousness and light throughout the villa that makes for a relaxing stay.
