This fully furnished manufactured home is set as a lakefront property. The original house is factory modified by the addition of a sun room, which is fully insulated and with AC and heating, so it also serves as a 3rd bedroom. While there are some rugs in the home, there is no carpeting, which makes hunting dust-bunnies very easy!

A large car port over the concrete driveway affords shelter for up to two cars (nose to tail only) and access to a spacious shed. A secured walkway alongside the shed allows access to the lanai behind the shed, although this space is currently occupied by a commercial, ADA compliant, steel wheelchair ramp giving access to the sunroom door. This ramp can be removed if desired.

The main entrance allows access to the interior hallway which runs past the kitchen to the living and dining rooms, and also to the master bedroom, guest bathroom, 2nd bedroom, and the fully equipped laundry room. The living room has sofas as well as an armchair and large coffee table. The entertainment center has a functioning television with an Amazon Firestick connected to the whole-house WiFi.

The dining room has a table and chairs seating 4 people as well as a china cabinet, while the kitchen has an electric stove, integrated microwave, fridge over drawer freezer with ice maker (plumbed in), double kitchen sink with garbage disposal and rinse hose, and comes equipped with pots, pans, cutlery, crockery and sundries.

The laundry room has a top loading washer and front loading dryer, both recent. It also has a large chest deep freeze installed, although not big enough for a body, please make other arrangements for that.

The master bedroom has a new king size bed, flanked by bedside tables with lights in front of the East facing windows. A large chest of drawers has another TV, also with a firestick, while the vanity has even more drawers for storage. Two large closets along the wall provide for 'hers' and 'hers' storage, leaving space in the guest room for 'his' stuff. A modern ceiling fan allows for remote control and adjustable LED lighting (color and brightness). The open archway into the master bathroom gives access to a sink centered in front of a large mirror, with ample space for the necessary tools. There is also a sit-down vanity, with stool and it's own mirror. A door opens off this area to the obligatory WC and a spacious walk-in shower with fitted 'his' and 'hers' seats inside.

A smaller hallway off the main hallway has a door to a utility closet, partially filled by the air handler and air filter housing. The guest bathroom has a sink and small vanity, the WC, and a full size tub which doubles as a step-in shower.

Also leading off the second hallway is the second bedroom with a queen size bed, bedside tables with lights, a large window facing South, a ceiling fan and a generous closet. It also has a chest of drawers and a small desk.

Back through the main hallway is a sliding glass door leading to the sun room. This area also has several windows from the living and dining rooms, but all can be closed off with blinds if desired. The sun room is large, spacious and airy thanks to the large bay windows overlooking the lake to the West. One end is laid out as a 3rd bedroom, with queen size bed, bedside tables, lights, etc., while the other end has a patio style table and 4 chairs (kid's dining area?) and a pair of sun loungers and ceiling fans.

The doorway here opens into the Lanai. For those not familiar with the term, this is a roofed in area, usually connected to the house, usually with screens or plastic windows but not air-conditioned. It's purpose is to sit and enjoy the evening sun, drinks and conversation with friends, all while being protected from flies and mosquitos. This area is equipped with a ceiling fan, but is currently unfurnished since most of the space is taken up with the previously mentioned wheelchair ramp.

Blue Heron Bay (blueheronbay.net) is located in Haines City, Florida and fronts onto Tower Lake. A 55+ community, the large clubhouse features an equally large pool and spa and facilities include Bocce ball courts, Shuffleboard courts, Horseshoes, firepits, a private boat ramp, billiard table, fitness room, card and game tables as well as potlucks, dinners and dances throughout the winter season.

The park is immaculately cared for, and the houses are not your typical 'crammed in like sardines' arrangement. There is even assigned space within the park to store trailers, boats, etc. when not in use. While there is no apparent security, there is always a friendly neighbor watching out!!

Located next to Highway 27, which provides easy access to Orlando, the Disney parks, Legoland, Bok Tower Gardens and many other attractions, the park also has golf-cart usable roads to Walmart next door, a gas station, Winn-Dixie and even down to CVS. Also close by, but not by golf cart, are Dollar store, Big Lots, Tractor Supply, Aldi, Walgreens, Sonny's BBQ, Manny's Chophouse, Lowes, the list goes on!

If there is a downside to the park, it is that nobody wears name-tags, so you will need a very good memory for names. You may meet some old friends here, but I guarantee that you will make new ones too!!
