Cumbrian Lakes: Cumbrian Lakes is a relatively small upmarket development built around lakes in a conservation area, Despite its quiet tranquility it is close to all the main attractions (Disney etc) and only 10 minutes from the 24 hour Wal Mart stores. There are many and varied restaurants within a few minutes drive and water sports are only about 10 minutes drive away at Lake Buena Vista. There is a children's play park on the estate and a children's farm and riding stables within 5 minutes drive down Poinciana Boulevard. We are close to the town of Celebration with its Market Street full of good restaurants and a Cinema. There are also tennis courts there. Cocoa beach on the Atlantic coast is less than an hours drive while Tampa dn Busch Gardens is just over an hour in the opposite direction.
I am a retired Scottish GP. My wife Morag, a retired Primary teacher, own the villa with another couple, Ken and Lorna Patrick. Ken previously was a manger with Astra Zeneca and is now an independent management consultant. Lorna is a manager with Bristol Myers Squib. We bought the house as we love golf and Florida provides a great climate to enjoy golf.
Alan Black purchased this villa in 2004
Ken and I had been travelling to Florida for a number of years before we decided to buy a house there. We looked at several before choosing this one - off plan. It had the WOW factor and was in an ideal situation.
It is open and airy with a south facing pool and spa looking onto a lake. The pool and spa face south west which is ideal to sit outside under the covered lanai and watch the sun go down. The pool and spa get sun all the year round. The community is small and relatively quiet but close enough to all the important loci such as theme parks, golf courses, shops and restaurants.
The Villa is very well equipped. There wasn't really anything that we needed that was not available. We've rented from other homes in the area, and have come back to this one 5 or 6 times now. We love the area, the gated community, the view of the lake and fountains and the fact that we're not more than 15 minutes away from the Disney parks, and lots of restaurants.
We found the the villa to be extremely clean and are amazed by it's continued upkeep. Every year we visit we find the villa remains "fresh."
The home is beautiful. Our stay was exciting and relaxing. I would choose this property again. It had all the extras of a luxury home and more.
