Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Lutz - Cypress Lakehouse

Enjoy a peaceful respite at our lakeside gem. 2 bedroom/2 bath on 5 wooded acre

Beautiful Old Florida Lake House - Experience real Florida. Best of both worlds - great location for access to local attractions yet privately tucked away in a shaded lakeside cove. Relax by the lake or explore nearby Tampa attractions - Busch Gardens, Florida Aquarium, Adventure Island, USF, University of Tampa, Ybor City, the Straz Center, Lowry Park Zoo, The Florida Aquarium, Amalie Arena - all less than 30 minutes. 45 minutes to downtown St. Petersburg. If you love outdoor adventure, opportunities abound - kayak clear Weeki Wachee Springs or the dark tannin Hillsborough River for excellent viewing of alligators and abundant birds (both within a 30-45 minute drive). Award winning white sand beaches and boating to islands are available within a 45 minute drive. This Florida cypress and heart wood pine home exemplifies Florida Cracker houses with modern comforts. Connect with nature in the spacious open living room adjacent to a 500 foot screened in lanai. The downstairs bedroom has it's own bathroom and large walk in shower with dual shower heads. Walk upstairs to the second bedroom where you will find a comfortable queen sized bed, wood floors and private bath with a shower/bathtub. There is plenty of natural light throughout and the home opens to views of the majestic Cypress trees and 50 acre Saddleback Lake. Wood and tile floors throughout. TV with netflix & hulu, washer & dryer, canoe, lakeside deck, bbq. Nature, comfort, convenience to shopping, restaurants and attractions.

About Judi

Hello - I'm an empty nester with a passion for being steward to this unique place I've called home for 24 years. The house was designed and built by the family in 1956. Now that the kids are grown, I'm delighted to offer this peaceful lakeside estate to travelers who wish to experience what Florida is really about.

Judi purchased this house in 1956

Why Judi chose Tampa Bay

Best of both worlds: beautiful nature, cool shaded lakeside enjoyment convenient to Bay Area attractions and nature adventures.

What makes this house unique

Private with abundant natural beauty, conveniently located.

Peaceful retreat home!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about our vacation experience at this very special home! Our extended family was in Tampa, unfortunately, for a funeral, and Judi's home was the most comforting place I can imagine we could be. I loved meditating on the dock in the early morning, and watching the full supermoon there in the late evening. We kayaked on the peaceful little lake with kayak and canoe provided. Judi's home was very comfortable for us, with 2 comfortable and quiet queen bedrooms and another smaller single bedroom. She had premium products in the 2 bathrooms, along with a fully stocked kitchen (including coffee, tea bags, creamer, etc.). Our family had peace and privacy in this lovely setting. There is nothing I can criticize or suggest for improvement! You will note that the location is not on the ocean or downtown, but we loved this setting regardless (about 25 minutes from downtown Tampa). Judi made herself available and responded to any question I had. Great stay--great hostess!

Amazing house, area and owner!

Judith the owner was an absolute delight to book with! Very accommodating and understanding! Even worked with us after booking it the weekend of the Hurricane unknowingly !

The house was clean, well stocked and uniquely designed. We were able to relax and just enjoy the surrounding nature.

While it feels like your secluded in nature, when your ready to venture out there are plenty of local stores and restaurants near by for your enjoyment and entertainment!

We cant wait to stay again and recommend friends and family to do the same!
