House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps
Leave the cold, come relax, and be young again in The Villages' active 55+ golf cart community. Stay in style and comfort in this delightful 2 bedroom/2 bathroom ranch home in the Village of Ashland. This home is in a great central location, a short golf cart ride to Lake Sumter Landing, Arnold Palmer Championship Golf Course and Country Club, and several of the 27 executive (9-hole) golf courses. There are many popular neighborhood restaurants, stores, health and beauty spas, churches and medical facilities nearby. It’s just blocks from Churchhill Street Recreation Center, Ashland Pool, and scenic Lake Miona Park. Just hop in the electric golf cart provided with the rental, and you’re just minutes away from all that The Villages has to offer.
This newer Austin model home is airy with vaulted ceilings and an open, upgraded kitchen and breakfast bar. With sliding glass windows over outdoor screens, the enclosed lanai can be enjoyed year round. The over-sized, tiled lanai is nicely furnished with a wicker sofa set and cafe table to relax or dine in Florida style.
Guests can enjoy watching television in the master bedroom and lanai, as well as the living room, which features a flat screen HD television and Blu Ray DVD player. The home theatre set-up includes surround sound for movies and music.
Both bedrooms feature comfortable queen beds with adjoining full bathrooms, desks, and coordinating furniture. The master suite includes a large walk-in closet, and access to the lanai. The home has attractive furnishings in a neutral color scheme to make this home your “home away from home.” You’ll want to come back.
