About Lars

I grew up in Lemvig, Denmark, and have lived in the Tampa area for 20 plus years now. I bought this house as an investment and have enjoyed managing it. I am a real estate broker and investor helping many homebuyers/ investors buy and sell real estate in Florida. Many buyers are from foreign countries.

Lars purchased this house in 2005

Why Lars chose Florida

The house is situated on a private lake where you can relax and enjoy the day, or where it is very convenient to get to the heart of the Tampa Bay area. Easy drive from the airport.

What makes this house unique

the lake and all the quiet peacefulness are just awesome

Quiet peaceful lake house

  • 5 of 5

This house is located in a quiet neighborhood on a peaceful lake. We enjoyed fishing and caught several fish. The house was very clean and very well stocked with supplies. We had a small problem during our stay. The owner was very responsive and fixed it quickly. Wonderful place to relax.

Car: recommended

Property is located just off of the Veterans express way, at the Dale Mabry Exit. It is 1.2 miles north of the exit ramps, which is just north of Cheval Golf and Country Club, one of the more elite communities in Tampa. When you arrive at the property you will be impressed with how close you are to all amenities (Grocery Store and Target are about two miles north) but how peaceful and quiet the property and community are. Parking is plentiful.

Golf: TPC Tampa Golf is located at 5300 West Lutz lake Fern Road and is 2.3 miles from the house. TPC is an awesome course and one that you will thuroughly enjoy.
